James Milner meets the internet – The best bits from our No. 7’s brilliant first year on social media

22 March 2019

James Milner is celebrating the one-year anniversary of his first foray into social media, with the Liverpool midfielder making a big mark over the past 12 months.


At 33, Milner is the oldest player in Jurgen Klopp‘s squad, with his high standards of professionalism keeping him at the top level of world football as he nears the end of his career.

That same approach led to the affectionate nickname of ‘Boring James Milner‘, and while this is clearly not the case if his team-mates are to be believed, it is one that stuck.

And on March 22, 2018, the Reds’ vice-captain paid homage to this with his first post on social media, which has since generated over 31,000 likes and 109,000 retweets:

Now one year on, Milner is well established on both Twitter and Facebook, and few from the Liverpool first team can match his efforts.

Here, we take a look at the best bits from the No. 7’s first 12 months on the internet.
