Positives from USA Friendlies vs Austria, Scotland

Edinburgh Evening News Ignores Whitecaps Fans, Supports Miller and Robson

Even on home soil, Kenny Miller still has plenty of detractors. It would appear the Edinburgh Evening News' Anthony Brown isn't one of them, saying in his column "MLS Switch Shouldn't Count Against Miller": "...when it comes to the likes of Miller and Barry Robson – two players who have spent the bulk of their careers in the SPL and English Championship – the notion that they have somehow taken a step down in moving across the Atlantic is utterly ridiculous. If anything, they have bettered themselves. This league [MLS] has levels of cash, support and quality which the impoverished SPL can only dream of." As for Miller's scoring slump, Brown continues the defense: "Only two seasons ago, Miller was arguably the hottest striker in the SPL as he banged in goals on a weekly basis. However, the fact the nets haven’t bulged quite so regularly in his early days with Vancouver suggests he is now operating in a vastly superior division, despite claims to the contrary from those still living in the 1990s. The reduction in goals certainly can’t be put down to any notable deterioration from Miller. If anything, he’s at his peak, with his last four outings for the national team having seen him score twice – including the wonder strike against 
Cyprus – and set up three more." To be fair, I would rank a "wonder strike" against Cyprus as about as difficult a feat as a nutmeg against nine-tenths of the Chivas USA outfield, but there you have it. Not a bad motivational read, though my nagging internal cynic wonders how many 'Caps matches Brown actually sat through prior to posting the column.
