Liverpool were lucky to take all three points in their match against Bournemouth last night, getting the benefit of some dodgy refereeing decisions.
New signing James Milner had a reasonably good game, but his overall performance was overshadowed by this truly terrible free kick during the closing minutes of the match.
Seriously James, if you are going to attempt a training ground routine like that, you need to execute it properly.
Naturally, he got a fair amount of stick for it on social media.
Still cannot stop laughing at that James Milner free kick tonight. About 100 better options must have circulated his head, then urm, yeah...— George Benson (@MrGeorgeBenson) August 17, 2015
Worst free kick routine of all time, Milner has just tried to put that on the moon.— LFC Fans Corner (@LFCFansCorner) August 17, 2015

James Milner's Free Kick last night tho....CHRIST!!!— Ike Yeboah (@ikejnr_23) August 18, 2015
At least the boss liked it, eh James?
Brendan Rodgers said Nice freekick, James.
I said Really? I thought it was a poor freekick.
He said I was being sarcastic, James.
I said Oh.— Boring James Milner (@BoringMilner) August 17, 2015
