Leeds United fans on Twitter have been calling for Patrick Bamford to be dropped for their next game against Aston Villa after his poor performance against Brentford on Monday evening.
He was ineffective up front as Leeds drew a blank against the Bees. The former Middlesbrough striker squandered numerous chances inside the box and fans have now lost patience with the forward.
The former Middlesbrough man had been in fine form in recent weeks but the recent dip in Leeds’ form has seen fans turn on the striker.
The 25-year-old has netted nine goals in 21 games for Marcelo Bielsa’s side this season including three in his last four yet, fans now want him out of the side after his poor showing against Brentford.
Certain sections of the fanbase want to see Kemar Roofe return to the starting XI. Leeds’ top scorer has banged in 14 Championship goals this season but has found himself on the bench in recent weeks following his return from injury.
Here’s what Leeds fans have been saying on Twitter…
I swear if Bamford starts up top against Villa I’ll just combust with anger. What does it take for him to be dropped.

I don’t get Bamford… does well one game, then shocking for next 3! Bielsa needs to shake something up for Villa #LUFC

We need to start with Roofe, Bamford on the bench and get back to that high tempo all over the pitch action. Get back into the groove for the play-offs

Surely Bamford can never start for us again, so so so bad! Been saying it for years said it when we signed him still saying it now!

Need to start preparing for the playoffs now. Bamford back to his super sub role, roofe back in control up front, back to the team from before Christmas.

@LUFC Lets sell Bamford or even give him away, we need someone like Roofe playing from the start not Bamford who scores 1 in 30 shots…
