Former England defender Mills has had plenty to say in his Mills & Boom columns for TEAMtalk.

But now he will feature on Sky Sports News Radio's Football Panel, hosted by Aston Villa fan Dave Reed every Monday between 10-11am, alongwith former Northern Ireland defender Craigan and OPTA boffin Kearney.

The quartet discuss Mark Hughes' future at QPR, with pressure rising following the weekend's home defeat by fellow strugglers Southampton.

Mills feels there are plenty of quality players in the Rangers squad, but a severe lack of 'characters' who are ready for a relegation battle.

The former Leeds hardman worked under Hughes at Manchester City, and admits he may need to alter his ultra-organised training routine to create a better atmosphere among the squad.

They also discuss the main talking points from a thrilling weekend of Premier League action, with Chelsea and Manchester United slumping to shock defeats and Manchester City hitting five past Paul Lambert's Villa.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
