News in the News of the World today that Newcastle United winger James Milner is said to want to move to Liverpool.
James Milner – wants to move to Liverpool?
The news is that James has appealed to Newcastle not to block his dream move to Liverpool.
We don’t know if this is true since only last week he was saying how much he was looking forward to next season at Newcastle United under Kevin Keegan.
But there again it’s Sunday again, and it’s the News of the World.
We’re not sure moving to Liverpool is a dream move for any player unless you’re at the very highest level.
Craig Bellamy said it was a dream move for him a couple of years ago and lasted one season, and Peter Crouch, Jermaine Pennant, John Arne Riise and even Steve Finnan are now finding it hard to get a game on Anfield.
In our active poll, on what Newcastle fans feel about keeping Milner, with just 261 votes in, 69% want him to stay. If you haven’t yet voted please do so on the right.
If it is true that James wants to leave, Newcastle can always try to get some good players in return.
Maybe Peter Crouch and/or Steve Finnan, both of whom we think would make our squad stronger.
We also like Jack Hobbs, the young 19 year-old 6’3″ center-back, who looked solid when we saw him play for the Reds a couple of times last season.
We’d need to work out a player swap deal and who would pay the extra cash.
