Lee Miller: Likely to decide on contract this week

Miller, 30, is out of contract this summer and missed the club's deadline of May 30 to accept his new one-year deal.

"I've been in constant contact with Lee throughout the last couple of weeks, but we're in a situation where we want to talk to each other face-to-face rather than do things over the phone," Abbott told the club's official website.

"It's been quite frustrating for both of us because he's been away when I've been available and it's been the same the other way round.

"With that in mind we've had to show a little bit of patience, but that's acceptable when it hasn't been the fault of anyone that we haven't been able to get together.

"We've had some very good conversations, but there are one or two things we still want to discuss.

"We're both back in the country midweek and the plan is for us to meet up with a view to talking about Lee signing the contract offer we have on the table at the moment.

"If all goes well we should have a decision on that by the end of this week."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
