James Milner – B+
While he might not the big name addition that we might have been hoping for in our midfield, he’s certainly the safest option our owners could have gone for.

He’s got an impressive CV that includes two Premier League titles and an FA Cup, so let’s hope that he can bring that same winning mentality with him to Merseyside.
