Arlo Gibbons


James Milner, with his impressive career history, has joined Brighton on a free transfer from Liverpool. The 37-year-old midfielder brings a wealth of experience and leadership to the young Brighton squad as they navigate European football for the first time in the club’s history. Milner’s career began at Leeds United, where he made his Premier League debut at a young age. He went on to play for Newcastle United, Aston Villa, and Manchester City before joining Liverpool, where he won the Champions League. Milner is known for his tenacity, versatility, and understanding of the game. He has played in various positions throughout his career, including wide midfielder, deep-lying midfielder, and right back. His hardworking style of play and leadership qualities make him a valuable asset on and off the pitch. Milner will provide reliable cover for Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi in multiple positions and is expected to be a regular face off the bench. Off the pitch, Milner’s experience and professionalism are expected to have a positive impact on the young Brighton squad. In terms of fantasy prospects, it may be difficult to add Milner to fantasy teams due to his reduced game time and output in front of goal. However, with the departure of the team’s main penalty taker, Milner might become the team’s primary penalty taker when he’s on the field. Overall, the signing of Milner is seen as a positive move for Brighton and adds valuable experience to their squad.
