Whitecap Kenny Miller is the obvious Player of the Week choice


There really only was one choice for MLS Player of the Week; and that was Vancouver Whitecap Kenny Miller.

In an announcement that surprised absolutely anyone who even pays half-attention of MLS, Miller was named the Player of the Week after the votes from the North American Soccer Reporters were counted.

Miller scored two goals after he drew a game-changing penalty in Saturday’s 4-3 win over New England at B.C. Place.

With the Whitecaps trailing 2-0 and needing a spark, Miller was able to latch on to a long through ball but had his heels clipped by defender Andrew Farrell before the Scottish forward could launch a shot towards goal. The Whitecaps earned a penalty, Farrell was sent off for the professional foul, Camilo converted, and the game was turned on its ear.

Miller tied the game with a marvelous goal; he chipped the ball in the air past the New England back line, then ran onto his own flick and finished the chance.

He then scored with an audacious volley from distance to give the ‘Caps a 4-2 lead.

How The 11 voted: Miller. Since arriving in 2012 as a Designated Player, the reviews for the Scottish forward have been mixed, to put it politely. But if he can show that kind of dynamic form — or heck, even half of that — on a regular basis, he will erase all memories of his slow start in MLS.
