The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are having a fantastic day today. It has been a very tough few weeks, with results not going Jurgen Klopp’s way, but on Tuesday evening they finally got some respite. They demolished Maribor 7-0 in the Champions League, with the Reds really in fine form against the Slovenian outfit. So many players came through with fantastic performances, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain even picking up a goal for his new club.
This evening, though, there is only one name on the lips of the fans in the pub: James Milner. Milner has been a bit-part option for the Reds so far this season, but he came through with a fantastic performance for his club on a rare start, with his experience, leadership and technical quality really coming to the foreground. It’s no real surprise, of course, given how good he was last term, but it was certainly a reminder for the fans in the Transfer Tavern.
Following the game, Liverpool fans have taken to the internet to discuss his performance, and the supporters over on Reddit are calling for the Englishman to get his place back in the Liverpool first team on a permanent basis. They think that he deserves to play against Tottenham this weekend after impressing in Europe, and in truth, it’s hard to disagree. He was sensational.
