National Treasure

James Milner raises a finger to the nasty weather

Milner, and some wuss wearing gloves

James Milner

Amongst the various winners making up Man City’s team last night, one man stood head and shoulders above the rest. No gloves, no Ashley Young neck-warming contraptions, no John Barnes 1980s leggings.

Just James Milner, and a short sleeved shirt - screw you, snow! Presumably, were it up to people like Milner, City would have been playing in skins.

All through this crippling opposite of a heatwave, The Spoiler shall be raising a glass to the real men, playing with naked forearms, their lion hearts pounding against the snow after every brutal challenge.

For today, Milner, take a bow.
