View Full Version : Colin Miller covets job with Caps
11-13-2007, 06:42 PM
Colin Miller, a former defender and captain with Canada's senior men's national soccer team, is a candidate for the vacant Vancouver Whitecaps head coach position.
Miller said Monday he has discussed the possibility of signing with the Whitecaps with club president Bob Lenarduzzi, but added the discussions were "very loose" because he's currently under contract as an assistant coach with Derby County of the English Premier League...
...Lenarduzzi declined on-the-record comment about whether Miller is a candidate for the Whitecaps position. But there have been persistent rumours that Miller has been a candidate since Bob Lilley was fired on Sept. 18.

Can't be much fun to be at Derby these days ... getting beat by half a dozen goals every week.

You would have to think Colin is the front runner for the job and its his for the taking I guess another loss this weekend should be all that he needs to take the job back home.

I'm finally getting around to watching the Caps v Galaxy game from last week. And the Duz mentions that they are down to three candidates for a new manger, and they hoped to have made a decision within ten days and an announcement within two weeks. So that would be one week today?
Who is available?
Chris Hutchings, just fired from Wigan
Martin Jol, I know now I'm really dreaming, but after what he just went through with the press maybe he would be looking for something low key.
Jose Manuel de la Torre, just got sacked by Chivas de Guadalajara
Bruce Arena, just got sacked at Red Bull after a falling out with management
Graham Souness, since he left New Castle his name has been linked with many clubs, but is still around as a presenter on Irish Tv
Paul Simpson , just fired by Preson North End
Alex Smith, fired in July by Ross County, and has managed St Mirren, Aberdeen, Clyde, and Dundee United
Steve" McClaren , will be fired from the England job within a fortnight, and I doubt anyone will want him. His only option will be in North America.

When Ruud got the job with the Galaxy, it left Jurgen Klinsman available. That would be a nice, high profile hire.
Nick Dasovic would love the job, but aint going to get it.
I think it's Miller's job through and through.

I think you guys may be getting a bit ambitious with some of those suggestions....
Miller sounds like a good fit.
