We have been over Milner and his left foot sooo many times it's almost boring now.We've seen Milner play there and it became glaringly obvious he did not fancy crossing with his left
No way can I go along with this statement above.
It is a problem for Milner to get into those crossing positions on the left due to his lack of speed hence having to use guile by using payers inside and hoping for a dope to miss his movement. However he has shown when given the opportunity he can cross with his left or right foot from the left.
So no he is not like Robbo on the left but he is capable of doing a good but different job.
That doesn't mean we shouldn't be looking for other options just that it's not as pressing as to panic, yet.
There have been times when the majority of Milners assists have been made with his left foot so not fancying crossing with his left foot is nonsense. As the player inside him is Mané, Keita or Wijnaldum I really don't see what the problem is with him passing the ball that way is as Robbo himself often does it as well.
