The life of a Premier League football player, it’s what we all dream of, right?
To compete against the best in the world, to spend millions of pounds on things we don’t need and to eat at the best restaurants? It all sounds quite exciting.
However, one player who perhaps fails to embody the thrilling life of a modern-day footballer is Manchester City and England winger, James Milner.

In fact, some claim Milner is so far detached from the ‘playboy’ persona blasted at some players, that he comes across as being, well, quite boring.
One Twitter user who has duly taken advantage of Milner’s lack of flash, is the creator of @BoringMilner, a parody account which informs followers of all the imaginary boring goings-on in the City winger’s life.
Here are some of the best we’ve seen:
Just boiled the kettle for a cup of tea but walked away and left it so I had to boil it again before I made my cup of tea.

Just drove to Asda but it was shut & then I realised it was Sunday & it was meant to be shut, so I drove home.

Just woke up because the wind is really loud. I hope that I get back to sleep soon. If not I will be tired in the morning.

The orange I've just eaten was really easy to peel. I hope all the other oranges in the bag are just as easy to peel.

The real James Milner was recently asked if he had seen the account and what he thought of ‘his’ tweets.
And his response, yes, you guessed it, was quite boring…
Milner said: “It’s got a few followers now, hasn’t it? It’s a bit of fun and I’ve read a few of the tweets.”
Milner added: “If people think I’m boring, well, as long as I’ve got a Premier League winners’ medal I don’t really mind being as boring as you want.”
How anyone can make owning a Premier League winners’ medal sound boring is simply beyond us…
