James Milner - little known facts

Recommended Posts

1) Prior to becomming a professional footballer, James Milner was the boy in the Hovis adverts. He also had a tough childhood. He had to get up out of the shoebox that he lived in at twelve o'clock at night, and LICK the road clean with his tongues. For breakfast he had half a handful of freezing cold gravel, worked twenty-four hours a day at the mill for fourpence every six years, and when he got home, his Dad would slice him in two with a bread knife.

2) A single piece of coal can sustain James Milner for up to a fortnight....and that includes him doing lots of running about, and shit

3) In an early episode of "Reeves and Mortimer", a man asks Vic and Bob "Got any booze f' baby?" That baby was James Milner.

4) When not turning out for Villa, James likes to return to his native 1940's, don a flat cap and retire to the safety of the bomb shelter at the end of his garden

5) It's grim oop north and James Milner likes it that way.

6) James Milner can out-pace a whippet over 50 yards (none of that metric nonsense, neither !)

7) James Milner is on the right:


8 ) Adapted for a London location, Charles Dickens' "Oliver Twist" was based on the early life of James Milner. James is very proud of this, but doesn't like the musical adaptation as singing and prancing about is stricly for ponces.

9) James Milner doesn't like long trousers.

10) There is a clause in James Milner's contract that, apart from 90mins on match-days, allows him to smoke woodbines at all other times.

When people talk of Chuck Norris, little do they know Chuck's creation is based on the life and times of James 'Our Lad Jimmy' Milner.


I love this thread. Struggling not to laugh out loud in a packed main library at the University of Oslo.

James Milner lost both his legs to an anti-personnel mine in the second world war. He had two right legs sown back on, hence his ability to use both feet equally well.

Your wrong, it was the 1st World War
