Titus Bramble: Hoping for a run clear of injuries

More of the games that matter

Bramble was back in the squad for last weekend's defeat at Everton after several weeks on the sidelines with his hip problem.

As a result of the injury Bramble has lost his place in Martin O'Neill's starting XI and he is keen to make up for lost time.

"It's never nice being injured and watching the lads from the sidelines," Bramble told the club's official website. "Now that I'm back involved it's quite pleasing.

"I had a small tear in my hip flexor. It wasn't anything major, but it was niggly and enough to stop me playing games which was very frustrating.

"As a player you want a run of games in the team. I was in the side and doing all right but then to come out with an injury was not nice."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
