Leeds United: Fans want Patrick Bamford dropped

Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to tear into Marcelo Bielsa and have called for him to drop Patrick Bamford from the starting XI.

The Whites were held to a 1-1 draw by Derby County at Elland Road in Saturday’s early kick-off after conceding a last-gasp goal, which is not the first time it has happened – Swansea City scored late to take all three points from their encounter with the Yorkshire-based side.

An own-goal by Max Lowe put the hosts ahead in the first half, whilst Leeds failed to make their dominance pay when Mateusz Klich was guilty of missing a penalty in the second half.

The Whites were then made to pay when Chris Martin netted the equaliser inside stoppage time, resulting in Bielsa’s side having to take a share of the points.

Patrick Bamford was guilty of missing his fair share of opportunities and could not make the most of them when they presented themselves.

Indeed, fans were frustrated with what they saw from their attacker on the afternoon and took to Twitter to rip into him.

Many were angered with his performance, whilst plenty of them took to the social media outlet to call for Bielsa to drop him and play Eddie Nketiah instead.

Here are just some of their reactions…
