This has very little to do with the Gunners, but it might have a lot to do with your humour.
Yes, you know him as the player who makes Mikael Silvestre look rock solid and the man who got his name forever in history as part of the legendary backline which conceded nine against the Spuds last season.
Well, that’s what Steve Bruce saw in him before signing Bramble – like he has done at every club he joins, apart from Birmignham.
The Sunderland boss, responsible for moving Titus to Wigan during his time at the DDW Stadium, had this explanation for Sunderland fans after the arrival of Titus.
“Look, I thought long and hard about signing Titus, long and hard. I knew it might be a difficult one for Sunderland fans – and a difficult one for him. But the great thing is that the lad has plenty of bottle – he wanted to come here.
Hinting at a strong relationship between him and Bramble, Bruce admitted that “the easiest thing would have been not to sign him”. But he has “strengthened” his Sunderland squad with the 28-year-old nonetheless.
“Titus’s problem has always been his concentration levels but we improved them out of sight at Wigan and he’s big, strong, powerful with two good feet. The easiest thing would have been not to sign him and to avoid any hassle, but I think he’s a player who can genuinely improve us.”
Titus Shambles for England! Why do people dislike him so much? At least he puts smiles on our faces.
Here is Bramble at what he does for a living.
