If you’re a fan of the (in)famous @BoringMilner Twitter feed, has Manchester City got quite the Christmas gift for you?
Three cheers for James Milner, who sank his teeth into the idea that his holiday would be simply mundane in this hilarious video.

Door number 3 on my Advent Calendar was definitely worth the wait. It was a picture of a toy drum. It was blue & It was very nice.

This morning there was frost on my car windscreen. I told Yaya & he said his car was frosty too. Joe Hart said his car wasn’t frosty. Crazy.

From brown wrapping paper to the “snow” Christmas card from Gareth Barry all the way to the star of skit — the garbage can — this video is a treat. Without furthier ado, here’s Milner selling the joke brilliantly.
