Over half feel England star was wrong to move to Eastlands
James Milner's transfer to Manchester City is a bad move for his career, according to Goal.com UK readers.

Milner completed his drawn out switch from Aston Villa to the Manchester City revolution yesterday for a fee believed to be in the region of £18 million, with Stephen Ireland going in the opposite direction.

We asked the question whether the move was a good one for the England international's career, and our poll results make for interesting reading.

According to 42.83 per cent of you, Milner has made the wrong move because he will struggle to get a regular game due to the array of midfielders at Roberto Mancini's disposal.

They include the likes of David Silva, Gareth Barry, Yaya Toure, Nigel De Jong, Patrick Vieira, Adam Johnson and Shaun Wright-Phillips.

With Martin O'Neill departing because he thought the club were not willing to take the next step to try and break into the top four, 26.96% thought that Milner was right to leave Aston Villa but wrong to move to Eastlands.

That means a total of 69.79% are sure the player has made the wrong decision.

Some 12.83% feel that the former Leeds and Newcastle man was right to join, but felt he needs to improve to get a regular starting place, while 12.55% think it is a great move as he will be playing at the highest level.

Just 4.83% said they were not sure what they felt after one of the biggest deals of the summer.
