Titus Bramble: Could make a move back to first club Ipswich this summer

The 31-year-old, who began his career at Portman Road in 1998, is a free agent after he was released by Sunderland at the end of last season.

The former Newcastle defender trained with West Ham earlier this summer to maintain his fitness before later linking up with the Ipswich squad.

He played in Town's 2-1 friendly win over Gillingham on Tuesday night and boss Mick McCarthy later hinted Bramble could rejoin the club on a permanent basis.

When asked about a potential return to the Tractor Boys, Bramble confirmed it was a possibility.

"I'm not ruling anything out, there are a few options," he told the Green 'Un. "The main is for me to stay fit ahead of wherever I may end up.

"I've always said that one day I will come back and play for Ipswich again. Whether it's now or in a couple of years' time, who knows?

"Ipswich is in my heart. I'm born and bred from the town, so it means everything to me. I've always looked out for their results ever since I left and it's been disappointing to see them struggle at times because I think they should be a Premiership club.

"They seem to be picking up under Mick McCarthy though and I see no reasons why they won't be pushing next season."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). 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.

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
