Mate you are expecting a lot this summer if you think we can get better strikers than Santa-Cruz

Santa Cruz may be a talented player but what good would he do for us??? can't score from the treatment table can he?

“Each smallest act of kindness, reverberates across great distances and spans of time --affecting lives unknown to the one who’s generous spirit, was the source of this good echo. Because kindness is passed on and grows each time it’s passed until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage, years later, and far away. Likewise, each small meanness, each expression of hatred, each act of evil.”

Hopefully he will see that as well. He currently plays a more key role at Villa Park and will continue to do that. As we say about top players here in North America "Hes becoming the face of the franchise". It takes alot to trade away or in the case of Europe sell those players. One recent example here was a Defensive tackle by the name of albert hanesworth. Any American football fans will know who he is. He was lured away by a 7 year $110 million contract (76.3 million pounds or 209,000.00 pounds a week) Money talks unfortunently but once he was traded to his new team he went down hill and has not been worth the $$. So lets all be positive and say Milner wont go anywhere!

If mancini really wants him he will spend how much he has to just to get his man and for us i dont think that is a good sign. Football is a business remember if Man City offer big bucks like 30m plus i think RL will end up accepting

Im sure he will get over these little niggling injuries and be a hit which ever club he goes to next if he does leave

Exactly what is “an offer they can’t refuse”?

10/15 years ago, players valuations were down to certain things like contracts!, performance, age, club, international career etc.

This day and age, it’s all about who’s got the money, and how stubborn are the selling club willing to play the game!

The figure of £24 million which is being banded about is absolute rubbish.

One only has to think about mercianary Gareth Barry at Villa 12 months ago , he was the first choice England international, a 28 year old, nigh on 12 months to run on his contract and also the captain of his club!

What happend? A bid of £12 million comes in from Man Shity and it's accepted more or less on the spot.

Consider this! If Ma Oneil had been that little bit stronger, and indeed played hard ball with Shity, Villa should have possibly got TWICE the figure they recived for Barry, considering Shity paid £24 million for Lescott!!! WTF

Compare now Barry with Milner now, 24 year old, established international, 2 years 3 months to run on his contract, possibly the 1st name on the Villa team sheet, 3rd top goalscorer at the club this season, 8 years first team experience at different clubs and top of most of the Activa statistical charts.

Now if Mr over rated Stevie Gerrard is worth say £35/40 million according to Liverpool, why shouldn’t Villa be looking for at the very least that figure from Shity?

After all, they were stupid enough to pay £24 million for Lescott , so why on earth shouldn't we take advantage of Man Shitys stupidity when it comes to transfer fees.

All of the above is only if JM's head is turned by these offers, and indeed I tend to think that the kid loves it at Villa Park, and indeed he has youngsters around him who one day will no doub't break into the Engerland team and indeed form the backbone of the Engerland team in years to come.

One also has to remember that J.M has really only started to play in the midfield regularly this season, and in his first season he has indeed shown that he is one of the best if not the best utillity players in the Prem, and he can and indeed will only get better over the next couple of years in the midfield position and as a footballer in general.

Millner is a little rough round the edges at this moment in time, but I really feel, that he will indeed end up being one of the best players Engerland have produced in many many years. And to keep him at the Villa no matter what the cost, is something that RL should make dam sure he does.

Because this kid must suerly be well worth 40 mill plus now, consider his worth in two seasons time and or after he plays in the World Cup.

James Milner insists he is putting his club future on hold until after the World Cup but admits he could leave Aston Villa.

The England midfielder is in demand after a fine season with Villa and Manchester City have targeted Milner as their first big-money buy of the summer.

They have made a £20million bid which was instantly rejected by Villa and the Blues are set to face competition from city rivals Manchester United if they wish to maintain their pursuit of Milner.

The 24-year-old, a club-record £12m signing from Newcastle in the summer of 2008, is set to hold talks over a new contract at Villa Park after the World Cup.

But the PFA Young Player Of The Year, who has two years remaining on his current deal, admits he does not know if he will still be at Villa Park next season.

"Do I expect to be at Villa next season? I don't know," he said.

"I've worked as hard as I can and concentrated on club football while the season has been on.

"Now it's finished I'm focusing on England - and that's the only thing I am focusing on.

No distraction

"The speculation about my own future is not distracting. There are always going to be rumours about every player in every club when the transfer window opens.

"To be linked with any clubs is flattering but I'm just concentrating on England at this time.

"The season finished at Villa a week and a bit ago and we all said we would discuss it (his future) after the World Cup.

"I've enjoyed my time at Aston Villa, it's a good club. We've had a lot of success this season and come close in two competitions, and we are moving forward."

If he wanted to stay he would have come out straight away saying he wants to stay and achieve with Villa or something along those lines .

Doesn't look good

"This is not possible. What McGrath is doing is just not possible with the amount of preparation that he's had."

Completely agree with you Dublin, i dont like Jimmy,s quote "Do i expect to be at Villa next season? i dont know" a confirmatory statement would have been nice----reckon the writing is on the wall,i,ll be very peeved if J.M.leaves and sure wouldnt accept below £40mill, as this boy is gonna be a future 3 Lions captain, consequently i imagine NRC will now be staying.

money is ruining our great game------

a word of caution Jimmy lad----the grass aint always greener,
