Leeds fans on social media are loving Bamford’s attitude

A lot of Leeds fans expected Patrick Bamford to come in as an automatic starter when he signed for the club from Middlesbrough over the summer. However, Marcelo Bielsa has been unable to drop Kemar Roofe with the striker in unstoppable form. Bamford has claimed that he doesn’t mind biding his time for a place in the team and you can read his comments on The YEP.

Bamford got himself up and running at Elland Road when he scored after just 27 minutes into his first start for Bielsa’s side against Bolton Wanderers in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night, however, he could have a bit more of a wait before he gets a chance to do that in the Championship as he’s currently behind the brilliant Kemar Roofe in the pecking order in Bielsa’s 4-1-4-1 system that has torn both Stoke and Derby to pieces.

Whilst Bamford will be aiming to et some game time in the Championship sooner or later it’s imperative that the feelgood factor around the club is kept at all costs. The two strikers will have to share the goalscoring burden whatever happens and considering the difference in their styles of play, it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see Bielsa use them up front together at some point throughout the season.
