Bramble has been so much better than I though he'd be. Thought he was particularly impressive with Turner last autumn and Brown this winter. But he has missed the better part of the past two seasons through injury, and adding his... off-pitch, erm, proclivities to the mix, it may be that MON cuts his losses.
But then again, if Brown and O'Shea are also highly susceptible to injury (and recent history suggests they are) having extra cover in defence is advisable.
