James Milner's videos from self-isolation are giving us all life at this difficult time

There’s nothing boring about Liverpool’s James Milner. 

What could possibly be boring about winning two Premier League titles, the Champions League and an FA Cup? 

It’s an unfair slight – which has mainly come about due to the Twitter account ‘Boring James Milner’ – but it’s one the midfielder has taken in good humour.

Within the game, the 34-year-old’s professional mentality is part of the reason he’s so well-respected. 

Nobody should be calling him out over the odd glass of Ribena when he’s played such a pivotal role for two of the best sides in the country. 

Milner himself is only too happy to play on the stereotype regardless and he’s been worse than ever during the current Premier League hiatus. 

With football suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak, most players are in isolation so as not to risk contracting the illness. 

The likes of Tammy Abraham and Sergio Ramos have videos themselves using their home gym equipment to make sure they stay fit. 

Others, like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, have shared more light-hearted footage of themselves dancing in the house. Let’s just hope he doesn’t injure himself…

In response to that video, Milner filmed himself sorting tea bags and he’s now followed that up by uploading a clip of him measuring the grass. 

Are we all losing our minds while there’s no football on?

Maybe. It’s only Day Four. 

It’s hard enough for fans to cope with the Premier League being postponed, but it must be particularly tough for those whose entirely lives are structured around each game week. 

The most important thing is that Milner is following the official advice on ‘social distancing’, something his unconventional hobbies probably achieved for him years ago.
