Leeds United fans on Twitter have backed Patrick Bamford to have a better second season at Elland Road after a video of him scoring a peach of a volley in training emerged.
The short clip shows Bamford smashing one past the keeper from an acute angle, and many fans have gotten behind the forward, saying that the video shows exactly what he is capable of.
The former Middlesbrough man had a difficult first term at United, scoring just nine goals for the Whites. He endured an injury-plagued season though, and many fans believe that if he stays fit he could become a hero at the Yorkshire club.
Bamford does undoubtedly possess a lot of quality as he was voted Championship Player of the Year back in 2015, but he hasn’t been able to recapture that type of form at his new team.
Whites supporters are hopeful that the best is yet to come for Bamford and they are getting behind him ahead of the new season.
Here’s what the Elland Road faithful have been saying on Twitter…
Bamford scored 9 goals in 15 league starts .. had no Bielsa pre-season & suffered 2 bad knee injuries .. the lad is a class act, Bielsa wanted him, as this video shows .. all the idiots out there who keep hammering the lad are seriously thick #lufc

Totally agree dude he needs full pre season and no injuries and he’ll show his class

I once saw the much loved Tony Yeboah miss the ball completely as it came to him about 18 inches from the goalline against Coventry.
Bamford will come good just like Chris Wood did.

Just think once he’s stronger he’ll be class for us n just get his confidence back cos we know he’s quality with confidence like West Brom (H) and Preston (A)

He’ll come into his own next season.

If he can get a full Bielsa pre season and stay fit I’ll call it now he’ll get 25+ goals this season.

I think if he stays fit he will score 20+ goals next season but I’m not sure he will ever endear himself to the Leeds fans because of the way he plays,

100% fit bamford will get 20 goals easy in this league. Alot of fans jump on the band wagon when players are used as scapegoats. We are a better team with him uptop than when roofe is uptop. #MOT #LUFC
