The 510 Series: Thanks for that, brilliant. Just kidding, #SuperRedArmy

DialSquare_1886: Thanks. Selling was a risk but is definitely paying off so far.

AaronHJFT96: It was unbelievable. I was trying to work out if I can sell any reserve players to find funds for Courtois, then the message came through. I was ecstatic! They've already improved wages, junior coaching and training facilities this season. They're quality!

DeanByrne1995: Thanks Deano!
It's good to see Januzaj banging in a couple goals!

Milner Edges Wilshere To England Call-Up

James Milner beat Jack Wilshere to a call up to the England squad.

James Milner has beaten in-form midfielder Jack Wilshere to a call-up for the England national side, ahead of the upcoming friendly at home to Paraguay for the 19th November.

Arsenal captain Jack Wilshere has featured in England's last five games, a friendly against Belgium, in which he scored the only goal, and four World Cup Qualifiers, which including the man of the match award and a brace in the 6-0 thrashing of Montenegro. In contrast, James Milner is yet to put on an England shirt this season, having to watch from the sidelines.

James Milner has previously spoken about the England game, but gave no hints to his many fans and followers on twitter, despite receiving his first call up for over a year. Milner mentioned conversations with England players Michael Carrick, Rickie Lambert and the recently included Jay Rodriguez (shown below), but gave no hint that he would play alongside the stars.

James Milner spoke to Southampton striker Jay Rodriguez about his potential debut.

Arsenal fans have clearly displayed their disappointment in the involvement, but both Manchester City and neutral fans felt the right decision was made, although the logic behind Roy's choice is unknown.

The £8.25 million valued central midfielder, who can also play out wide if needed has featured for the Citizens eight times, grabbing one assist and an average rating of 6.92. On the other hand, Arsenal regular Jack Wilshere has featured for the Gunner no less than 14 times, scoring 3 while also assisting three.

Valued at a mega £23 million, Wilshere has been vital for his club this year, leaving fans puzzled to why the likes of James Milner, Michael Carrick and Jack Rodwell have all been selected over the 21-year-old.
Love how you used the Boring James Milner twitter!! :D Nice update
lol, boring James Milner. "He said he was", classic. Great update Kane.
Nice update! Shocked that Milner got selected over Wilshere though.
Great update man.
Nick: It's quality, couldn't resist!

Jozef: Good to know James can understand anything! 140 characters, clear and concise. Simple! Thanks :)

pompeyblue: So was I, so I had one or two things to say to the FA, may have got into a little trouble. Just a warning though. :P

BayernAmerica: Thanks :D

United Star Kagawa Disapproves of the 'Glass Ankle'

Shinji Kagawa has backed up Milner based on his call-up.

Manchester United midfielder Shanji Kagawa has amazingly backed up rival club player James Milner following the international call-up debate. Fans have been questioning the ideas of Roy Hodgson after he decided to drop Arsenal captain Jack Wilshere in favour of James Milner.

Nevertheless, Kagawa, who plays for the rival side of James Milner's club Manchester City, has commented on the situation, saying Roy has made the right decision in picking Milner.

The 24-year-old has also taken to twitter to express his views on the situation, in a rather absurd, but unique way. Following Jack Wilshere's complaints about Milner, who could be considered to lack experience at an international level over the last few seasons, in which in the England team has changed to a considerable extent, Kagawa hit back by rejecting the claims, and also throwing some typical 'pre-match banter' into the mix.

Shinji Kagawa mentioned the recurring ankle injuries of Wilshere.

Shinji, who has finally seemed to have settled into the Barclays Premier League, featured against Arsenal in the 2-2 draw at Emirates Stadium earlier in the season. Kagawa battled closely with Jack Wilshere, who was dramatically cancelled out of the game by Japanese Kagawa.

All eyes will be on James Milner as he features against Paraguay, with Hodgson suggesting he may start alongside Frank Lampard, although many will certainly be keeping up Shinji Kagawa's account throughout the game.
The use of two of the best twitter parody accounts out there in two consecutive updates...oh yes.
It's funny 'cos he can't speak proper English. Although I hear that in real life he speaks very good English.
