Leeds fans on Twitter have been ripping into Bamford after Maupay masterclass

Leeds fans on Twitter have been ripping into Bamford after Maupay masterclass - Championship

Yesterday saw Leeds United crumple up and set alight to their automatic promotion hopes as they fell to a 2-0 away defeat against Brentford. It was a performance to forget from a lot of the Whites, and Patrick Bamford was again poor on a day when Neal Maupay showed just why he’s the Championship’s 3rd top scorer with 24 goals to his name.

Despite having to contend with plenty of time on the sidelines this season, Bamford has bagged nine goals in 20 appearances for the Whites, and that looks like a steady return. However, Leeds fans are not happy with the ex-Chelsea man as that number could be far higher if he could convert more often, meanwhile, Maupay of Brentford is bagging for fun and scored again yesterday to make it 24 this season.

If Leeds United had Maupay leading the line to complement Marcelo Bielsa’s tactical superiority then Leeds United fans would be laughing and would likely have already secure promotion to the Premier League. As it stands, though, they have the injury-prone, wasteful Bamford, and are staring down the barrel of the playoffs, despite the fact they’ve spent 33 game-weeks in the top two this season.

You can read the Whites’ verdict on Bamford after watching the brilliant Maupay here:

The Whites are in desperate need of a top striker and if they could swap Maupay for Bamford then promotion would be a formality.
