All Eyes On Milner

All Eyes On Milner

Although he has very few options, United boss Glenn Roeder sees James Milner as the man who can make a name for himself in Saturday's InterToto Cup tie with Lillestrom ... leading the line.

Roeder says Aston Villa manager David O'Leary has transformed his winger into a player who offers so much more than running up and down the line.

Roeder: 'I had not worked with James Milner before but it's two weeks today since we returned to training and in that time I have been very impressed with him - he is so versatile. And I know that our fans will be delighted to see just how much he has improved after being at Aston Villa for the past 12 months.

'I have to say that he has really benefited from the experience of being away. I feel that I can work with James and that I can get the best out of him. He is a very intelligent player and a deep thinker about the game, and he is a joy to work with.

'But I have told him he will have to play well, and he accepts this.'

I'm not sure he's as effective up front

He'll pull out to the flanks or drop too deep too often, which is not useful when someone like Luque is playing beside him, who likes to drop back and wide a little himself. Leaves us with nothing up front.
