'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Milner: Cap me now!

Having snatched the record for most under 21 caps from Scott Carson, Jinky Jimmy Milner is now looking to follow Dickheed David Bentley and grab his first full cap for the senior side:

"I want to play for England. I have a lot of experience at Under-21 level and in the Premier League, and I suppose that's the next progression for me to make. It's not on my mind too much, because you'll only get into the England squad by playing good football for Newcastle. You have to do it week in, week out, and also take your chances with the Under-21s when they come your way. But it's something that I definitely want to do in the future.

I'm very lucky to have got a chance at the age I did. Terry Venables wasn't scared to put me in when I was at Leeds and I managed to take my chances. A lot of 21-year-olds will probably have 30 or 40 games under their belt - I've got more than 200. I'm lucky in that way, and having that much experience at this stage of my career can only stand me in good stead in the future. Hopefully, it'll help me push on.'

Good player but he's no where near ready for England just yet.

Agree - too slow when you look at the likes of Lennon and Wright-Phillips.
