As Paul Joannou points out in The Black 'n' White Alphabet: "He had devastating pace and a lethal shot in either foot. Jackie was especially remembered for his ability to swivel in tight situations to power a drive towards the net... Milburn could join expertly in approach play, and possessed tremendous ball control running at speed, as well as a marvellous sliding tackle that took the ball from opponents."

As a boy Bobby Robson watched Milburn play at St James Park: "I used to watch Newcastle back in 1948 when I was 15 and so Jackie Milburn meant a lot to me... He was tremendously quick... a good taker of a chance and I liked his energy. He was a good individual player, but also a team player and he worked hard for them. He would chase defenders too and try to recover the ball and then go on the re-strike. He had tremendous pace, always robbed the ball from behind defenders... He started playing outside-right but could play centre-forward and it was hard to decide just which was his best position."
