What will we do with James Milner?

Brought in on a free transfer by Brendan Rodgers this Summer, the former Man City midfielder has hardly made one notable contribution to this Liverpool team since his much-heralded arrival.

Brought in  as a central midfielder not to replace or fill Steven Gerrard’s boots but to be a midfield anchorman, a go-to player when thing got tough at the back.

A player to make the crunching tackles in midfield and launch attacks for the forwards, that was the plan.

However, “Boring James Milner”, as he was parodied on Twitter has not produced in his short Liverpool career so far.

He needs to stop running around like a headless chicken, charging into silly tackles and giving away fouls.

He also needs to take control of the midfield instead of leaving it all to Lucas Leiva, who has played well this Season.

Time to deliver Mr. Milner or you will be Klopped.
