Not-so-funny bone

More concern for Souness and the fans.

Our defence was threadbare at the end of last season as it was, since when we've sold O'Brien and Hughes without signing any reinforcements. And now, with less than a week to go until our first competitive match of the season, comes the news that Titus Bramble's broken his elbow in a training ground accident.

Much maligned he might be, often on this very site, but the former Ipswich player looked a changed man in the second half of last season, and we can ill afford injuries like this before a ball's even been kicked.

Just a shame he does know his arse from his elbow - if he'd fallen awkwardly on his amply cushioned posterior, he wouldn't have sustained any injury.

The message to Souness is even clearer now: GET ON WITH SIGNING SOME PLAYERS. If we haven't got at least one quality defender in by the end of the week, I'll be tearing my hair out.
