Slow start for highest-paid Whitecap

The Vancouver Whitecaps signed 32-year-old Scottish forward Kenny Miller in mid-July to a deal that pays him $1.2 million in the first year, making him the highest-paid Whitecap. After five appearances (two starts), Miller has yet to put a shot on target, let alone score or set up a goal, reports Marc Weber.

Last week the Whitecaps lost 2-0 to Seattle on Saturday and 2-0 to Dallas on Wednesday, when Miller made his first start.

"A horrendous week," said Miller. "I'm bitterly disappointed in both results we've had. Seattle, what a chance to bounce back after Wednesday, playing your local rivals in a derby and the travelling fans have come a long way to watch us. For me, first two starts, and to be beat two-nil, two-nil, it couldn't have went much worse, to be honest. ...

"Obviously when you come mid-season you've not got a lot of time to kind of get settled, so you've got to try and hit the ground running. Unfortunately, it's not quite went that way for me yet, so you've just got to pick yourself up and get ready for the next game. It's another big game [Portland] away from home."
