      100% - his graft and ground coverage have been incredible thus far but I think he’s been scrappy a lot of the time too.



      I think he has been over played but that may have been down to Jürgen just wanting to get this intense period of games out of the way with the tried and trusted.

      Of course now there will be enforced changes in midfield.

      Completely - said a couple games ago I thought he looked leggy. Not at top end effort but in recovery / transition.

      Unfortunately for Milly could even have been a factor in the injury.

      Congrats on reaching 500 games James. What a workhorse and as someone said before, we git a player that can play 5 positions and we didn't spend a cent to get him.

      Anyone else notice in our last 2 games, the weather was f**king sh*te, every one of our lads wears the under garment underneath their top except James. He's no cold weather pussy.  ;D

      Yeah I noticed that. F***ing love it - he’s been brilliant for us ever since we signed him. I would genuinely give him another 2 years contract, he’s fit as a fiddle and I can imagine the example he sets to everyone else is on another level in terms of training.

      Spot on mate, am sure his legs would easily carry him another 2 years. Don't think Jürgen would let him go anywhere.

      Well he is the only one who’s been the distance , I think an older head who’s been there done it, and also the model professional can only be good a real asset to Klopp and the team ,

      I though Milner was brilliant tonight. Full of energy and dynamism off the back of having played at Burnley and Bournemouth. His assist for Salah makes it 9 assists in the CL this season and last

      Agreed - he was everywhere, down the left and right, through the middle.

      Get a new contract under his nose ASAP

      Agreed. I’d be surprised if he’s not with us next season Klopp loves him. As well as being a damn good player still his experience and professionalism are invaluable

      He might be boring, but he's integral to the squad.
      A good season for him, despite being in and out of the side and filling in at RB

      What a performance from this man, absolutely sensational!

      Worked his socks off and was integral in the full backs getting forward, time and time again he would fill in as RB or LB to allow Trent or Robbo get forward and on the attack.

      Honestly thought Fabinho, Gini and Keita was the answer to our midfield dilemma but after that performance i am not too sure, his ability to fill in at RB and LB throughout the game gives us something going forward in helping the fullbacks that i am not sure any other of our other midfielders can offer.

      Real captains performance that!

      His experience coming down the straight having been there and done it, could prove invaluable  to our youngsters , only him and The Boss know what it takes to get over the line excellent effort James .

      Despite his ageing legs meaning he is exposed to pace and he tends to get dribbled past quite often he does offer a better link to our forwards than Hendo or Gini.

      And Sturridge with Chelsea 09–10 where he scored 5 goals. Plus Shaqiri with Bayern 12–13, 13–14 where he scored 15 goals in total. Plus Fabinho with Monaco 16–17 where he scored 12 goals. Plus VVD with Celtic 13–14, 14–15 where he scored 15 goals in total.

      Milner's position is in the midfield with players who have fast legs in them.
