Leeds fans slam Patrick Bamford after shocking display against Sheffield Wednesday

So following Arsenal’s decision to recall Eddie Nketiah, Leeds United have just the one senior striker on their books. Patrick Bamford has been hit-and-miss this season, once going on a goal drought of ten games in the Championship, and then having a hot streak of scoring six times in eight matches.

With promotion to the Premier League the main objective for the rest of the campaign, Marcelo Bielsa desperately needed his centre-forward to be firing on all cylinders against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Instead, the 26-year-old drew a worrying blank, failing to find the back of the net with his five attempts on goal.

And with the Owls going on to win the game 2-0, Leeds fans flooded to Twitter to voice their frustrations with Bamford effectively costing them the game.

A few Leeds fans urged the club to sign a new striker to replace Bamford, with a couple even calling for Victor Orta and Andrea Radrizzani to get the chequebook out immediately.

A couple of supporters were understandably critical of Bamford’s lack of clinical finishing, with one fan insisting that the issue is “costing” the club.

Nketiah’s return to Arsenal means that the pressure on Bamford’s shoulders has only increased, and the Leeds striker just doesn’t appear to be entirely comfortable with that burden. His wastefulness against the Owls on Saturday afternoon cost Bielsa’s side big-time, and it really does reinforce the idea that they desperately need to sign some competition for him in this January transfer window.

Meanwhile, Danny Pugh has given his verdict on this Leeds ace’s potential move to a Premier League giant.
