Leeds fans react to Patrick Bamford’s Twitter post

Leeds United supporters have been in fine voice in recent times after seeing their team head into the current two-week break for internationals sat at the top of the Championship table.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men were tipped by many during pre-season to be in the promotion picture this season following the appointment of the Argentine, and they have certainly lived up to expectations so far in winning four and drawing the other two of their six league games. Victories over Stoke City, Derby County, Rotherham United, and Norwich City have been intertwined with draws against Swansea City and Middlesbrough to leave the Whites top of the pile, and thus dreaming of a return to the Premier League.

As such, there have been many delighted Leeds fans up and down the country in recent times, although their mood is likely to have taken a turn for the worst following the news that striker Patrick Bamford is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

The Englishman made the move to Elland Road from fellow second tier outfit Boro during the summer as Bielsa sought to improve his attacking options, although the 25-year-old has yet to start a Championship game for the Whites this season.

And he will have to wait a little longer before earning that elusive start, as reports suggest that he has been ruled out for four months with a knee problem.

Leeds fans… what do you think? Let us know!
