Newcastle boss Roeder yet to decide over Bramble future

He told the Evening Chronicle: “No decision has been made on the future of Titus Bramble.

“He was impressive for our reserves when they beat Middlesbrough 5-1 on Tuesday night and he is in the frame for Sunday.

“And if he does play I hope he comes up with a good game against one of his favourite teams.

“I remember sitting in the St James’ stands two seasons ago when I was working for the FA, and saw United play out a draw with Chelsea.

“The two Newcastle players who impressed me the most that day were Titus and James Milner.

“And, of course, I was in the dugout 12 months ago when Titus got the goal which beat Chelsea and took us into the InterToto Cup.”
