Results for James Milner

"Spurs Could Win The League"

12:03 pm
Nick Anelka has topped us as being dark horses for the Premier League title. To be honest, I still think we're one or two players short of winning the league.

Can we stay in the top four and cement our place there? In Harry's words "for sure". No matter what you think of our current squad, it is still a very strong one and will continually grow in stature.

Having Jamie O'Hara back and Gio Dos Santos, is like us having signed two new players, although both could be used as bait as Harry tries to wheel and deal. Shame really, as I would like both players to stick around and bolster our squad.

Harry was being interviewed on talkSPORT yesterday evening by Spurs season-ticket holder, Danny Kelly. Redknapp sort of hinted at us maybe doing some business with Villa, but only if they sell Milner, which Harry thinks they will. The business with us and Villa could be the sale of Keano to them, as well as other players. Jenas, anyone?

Transfer markets all over the world are dead at the minute as clubs simply don't have the cash to strengthen their sides. We look to be in the same boat unfortunately. If Anelka's words about us challenging are to be proved right, it looks as though we'll have to ship out a couple before being able sign anyone.

Seems ironic that we spend the worlds fortunes on trying to get into the Champion's League, but now that we're so close to it, the money pit has dried up.

Harry did say that it looks like all our business will be concluded towards the very end of the window. Just our luck.

Robbie Keane didn't Travel to Portugal with the Team

6:37 pm
I personally didn't see the headline, but Tommy from COYS as well as other colleagues of mine, told me about the Sky Sports News headline this afternoon which read: Robbie Keane not on the plane to Portugal along with the rest of the Spurs team.

The club say that he's picked up a knock and therefore there's no need for him to travel with the squad to face Benfica in tonight's friendly (live on ESPN at 7:45). I say that the Villa he's looking for isn't located in Portugal.

Some of us at work found a spare second and researched various Aston Villa forums. A few of their apparent trusted ITK's said that Robbie Keane had not renewed the tenancy contract he has with a local agent on his penthouse in Coventry as he expects to move back into it fairly shortly. Can there be anything in that?

Other "In The Know" Midlanders were sure that Keane was spotted at the Villa training ground today. Some, dare I say it, said that they have good information in relation to Reo-Coker being a part of the deal.

As is the case this time of year, the lot of it could be a load of rubbish, although there could also be some truth to the matter.

As regards the transfer of players, if Keane is to go to the Midlands club, I expect the Milner to City deal to be nearing completion. Things seem to be hotting up. If online betting is your thing, I would take a punt on two things; 1.) Blackpool getting relegated and; 2.) Roberto Mancini not being the Manchester City boss come the end of the season.
