The 27-year-old was released by Nottingham Forest this summer but could make a quick return to the City Ground as part of Jose Riga's squad this weekend after putting pen to paper on a one-year deal, with the option of another 12 months added on.

The former Manchester City trainee has also represented West Brom, QPR, Middlesbrough and Yeovil - scoring 10 goals in 19 league games when on loan with the Glovers in this division last term.

"It's taken a little bit longer than we all expected and wanted, but it's done now and I can't wait, I'm raring to go," Miller told Blackpool's official website.

"I've heard a lot about the club and we've spoken in the past about me coming here. I spoke to the manager and he assured me he was going to do things the right way, he was an integral part of me signing here."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
