Former Wigan Athletic defender Titus Bramble has taken a swipe at the Latics in a similar way that his former colleague Paul Scharner did once he`d signed for West Brom.
Speaking to a local newspaper up in the North East former Latics player of the season Bramble, who had his career turned around at Wigan after a shambolic period up at Newcastle, claims that with crowds of just 16,000 it`s not surprising that players want to leave the DW Stadium for a big club like Sunderland.
Jumping on the Scharner bandwagon Bramble has a little pop at current boss Roberto Martinez saying 'it was a big change from when Steve Bruce was there`, yeah it was, we actually won a few games playing football rather than big boot.
Bramble also mentions the rugby, selling players and says we are likely candidates for relegation, nice to see we are still close to his heart.
Speaking to the Newcastle Chronicle Bramble said: "It is always going to be a struggle for clubs like Wigan - it was last season, to be honest.
"With a new manager coming in, it was a big change from when Steve Bruce was there.
"It is hard to hang on to your best players.
"Wigan are a good family club but, because it is a rugby area, they only have crowds of about 16-18,000 at home games.
"Any good player with ambition wants to play for a big club like Sunderland and play in front of 40-45,000 fans every week.
' Best squad ever. It's all about how we play as a team. If we can do that then Scharner and Bramble will be eating their words. If we can't, well I'll still be here!'
HAVE YOUR SAY
"I am keeping my fingers crossed they don`t get relegated, but it will be tough because so many players have moved on."
Thanks Titus, here`s hoping you have a good season too
