Leeds fans fume as journalist tweets out footage of Patrick Bamford incident

Leeds won 2-0 against Hull City on Tuesday evening, but there was another incident during the game that slightly overshadowed proceedings.

Indeed, there has been plenty of publicity in the 24 hours after the match around one incident that saw Eric Lichaj accuse Patrick Bamford of intentionally kneeing Hull’s goalkeeper in the head just moments before Ezgjan Alioski netted the Whites’ second goal.

Now, that is a huge accusation in football, but a review of the footage from a different angle shows that Bamford isn’t guilty on this occasion.

The Yorkshire Evening Post’s chief football writer Graham Smyth shared an alternate angle of the incident, and it’s clear to see that Bamford wasn’t even looking at George Long at the time, and to be honest, the contact is incredibly minimal.

Can you name which season Leeds signed this flop?

Understandably, the Elland Road faithful were left fuming with the American after he accused their striker of foul play.

While some were fuming with Lichaj, others were waiting on him to apologise to the striker for damaging his reputation.

It would seem as if Bamford is owed an apology from the full-back as he didn’t hold back in his comments as he placed the blame squarely on the Leeds man’s shoulders.

Rather than pointing the finger at the full-back, others blamed the goalkeeper for making a meal out of the situation.

Did Bamford do anything wrong?





To be fair, it looked as if Long was barely touched, and he went down as if Bamford had just taken him out intentionally, so you can understand why supporters were annoyed with the goalie’s reaction.

Meanwhile, some Leeds fans have remained nervous despite an 11 point gap opening up between them and third place.
