Everyone's taking the p*ss out of James Milner's appearance at Liverpool's big bash
Poor James Milner.
He really can't win. When he tries to say or do something in public, he is lampooned for being boring, but on occasions when he simply wants to blend into the background, we stands out like a sore thumb.
Thursday night saw Liverpool host their end-of-season Players' Awards 2016. It was perhaps somewhat premature seeing as they may yet win the Europa League in Basel on May 18, but busy schedules must.
It was Philippe Coutinho who cleaned up in terms of actual awards, winning Fans' Player of the Season, Players' Player of the Season, the Performance of the Season (vs. Man City in November), and the Goal of the Season (vs. Man United in the Europa League).
But for many the sideshow that was most entertaining was the shoddy appearance of poor Jamie. You'd think there was no way of getting it wrong - each player in attendance wore the same official club suit. But it was the uneasy manner in which the England man wore it that caused so much mirth.
It's basically everything about him, from the 'I don't belong here' sideways glance, the naughty schoolboy demeanour, the f*cking atrocious tie effort, and the painfully uncomfortable way he holds his arms. As you can see below, everyone had a difference take on his awkward stance...

Good of James Milner to drop into the player of the year awards before Zoltar changes him back to a kid again pic.twitter.com/Grvmjzxut0
