Eric Grimes and Henry McStay discuss James Milner on Twitter

James Milner

Eric Grimes and Henry McStay discuss former Leeds United, Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Manchester City midfielder James Milner, now at Liverpool.

James Milner is one of the hardest working footballers and has played for some of the biggest clubs in England.

The England international midfielder, now on the books of Liverpool, started his career at Leeds United, before moving on to Newcastle United, Aston Villa and then Manchester City.

The 29-year-old has been very committed to his clubs and has given his all during games.

Off the pitch, too, Milner has been a model footballer and has carried himself with grace.

However, Milner has often been accused of being boring and not being lively enough during press conferences.

So much so that a parody Twitter account of the Englishman, @BoringMilner, has become an internet sensation, with more than 400,000 followers that show him going about his mundane daily task.

Leeds goalkeeper Eric Grimes, who is 20 years of age and is just starting out as a professional, has been discussing Milner’s perceived boringness with the midfielder’s former Whites teammate Henry McStay, who developed at the club's youth academy but could not break into the first team and is now a chartered physio working for the West Yorkshire outfit
