I am more English than Scottish, but Kenny Miller’s strike to put Scotland ahead against England in today’s friendly at Wembley made me shout with joy and fling my arms in the air. Though it was ultimately in a losing cause (England won 3-2), I’m sure our Kenny will be pleased to have that goal on his highlight reel.

The contrast between the Miller of last year and the Miller of this year is remarkable. Kenny seemed lost and past his best in 2013. In 2014 he is slamming goals in for the Vancouver Whitecaps and lashing a goal past England for Scotland too. What a turnaround!

It really is a testament to his determination to succeed and his commitment to answer his critics here in Vancouver and back home in Scotland. I kept on saying to my friend how great it was to be watching a Vancouver Whitecap play in such a high profile match.

Well done, Kenny, you made us proud!

  1. It was great to see and I enjoyed the feeling of “That’s our guy!” He played well throughout. Scots wha hae!

  2. I, too, was very pleased for Kenny Miller and all proud Whitecaps fans at his success against the auld enemy. Despite being Irish born and bred I get goose bumps every time I hear the Tartan Army bellow out “Flower Of Scotland” and I welcome some of the Whitecaps’ developing rivalries, in particular the Canadian Championship and Cascadia Cup matches, in the hope that one day in the not too distant future, those fixtures will generate the same high level of competition and emotion we see in the Scotland – England tradition.

  3. Ha ha! I love flower of Scotland too! Powerful stuff…
