Now a Newcastle star appears to have “weather problems”
Another top player displays temperature issues
We’re barely ten days into the new season and already the weather is playing havoc with the ability of some of the more sensitive stars to perform their duties satisfactorily. Vidic says it’s too rainy. Savage says its too cold. Now Newcastle’s not-for-much-longer midfielder James Milner has joined the list.
Although he left Coventry’s Ricoh Arena with the Man of the Match champagne in his handbag on Tuesday, Milner wasn’t having anything to do with reporters eager to discover who he might be planning to share it with. Why the silence? Could Milner be another victim of this season’s weather madness?
In Lee Ryder’s Blog on the Tyne in yesterday’s Newcastle Chronicle, he describes a similar episode when he attempted to interview Milner in the summer, following a training session in Mallorca.
“No,” said Milner. “I’m too hot.”
More likely, of course, Milner was silenced by an immenent move to Aston Villa. Indeed, so shabby has been the treatment received by Milner at Newcastle over the years, according to Ryder, that it would be no surprise if Milner were saving his bottle of the Widow Cliquot’s finest refreshment to toast getting away from them.
