Couple of months ago, Antoine Sibierski has given a praise for our ex-beloved The Mighty Titus Bramble and saying that he is completely a new player since his move to the Latics this summer.
Sibierski must be blinded by the time he is working “fine” against us at St. James’ Park in which the game must go in flat scoreline before Michael Owen finally break the dreadlock, near the end of normal time.
Bramble has the similar way of attitude when Titus joined Newcastle United in the FA Premier League in July 2002 for a fee of £5 million from Ipswich Town. By that time he is vowing to make himself ‘indispensable’ to then manager Sir Bobby Robson.
Bramble, along with Carlton Cole were arrested on October 10, 2003, on suspicion of a ‘gang rape’. They have both since been cleared from any future investigation.
The only award that Titus has received during his time as Newcastle player was at the end of the 2003/4 season. He’s been voted by the readers of the football e-mail newsletter The Fiver as the worst player of the year in the English Premiership.
One of them even wrote: “Titus’s occasional flash of brilliance is heavily outweighed by the total inability to think before attempting what inevitably turns into a hashed clearance, a mistimed tackle, an own goal or a penalty for the opposition.”
Good judgement. His latest hashed clearance actually happens last weekend when his team playing against Manchester City. His ‘perfect clearance’ which is one of his famous skill, once again resulting bad for his team. The City have been gifted when the game just being played in seconds, the fastest goal in the Premier League this season.
Despite his other team mate Chris Kirkland claiming “Arguably, Titus has been our best player this season” His latest error may force Wigan’s new boss Steve Bruce to reconsider Bramble’s place in his side.
Well, It’s not fair for him if we didn’t talk about his ‘so little’ contribution for our team. Yes, it’s very surprisingly that he is the one who scored a spectacular volleyed goal against Chelsea on May 8, 2006 in a 1-0 victory that secured Newcastle United qualification for the Intertoto Cup.
