The best of Boring James Milner – and the times the real one played up to it
One of the most consistent midfielders in the Premier League over the past decade, James Milner has earned 61 England caps, won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup, the League Cup and the Champions League.
But thanks to the Twitter account Boring James Milner, he will always be thought of as a dour Yorkshireman.
In fairness to both parties, there is an element of truth in some of the account, and Milner has been more than happy to play up to the stereotype.
Rationing in the Milner household is in full swing.

Firmino said I can't believe we are losing 2-0 to a Championship side. I said It's not over yet, Roberto. It's a game of two halves.
