But who would buy him in his current form?

Only us, and we have him

God knows mate

That miss where in front of goal he booted it so far wide it went for a throw in was ridiculous.

If he doesn't shape himself I can see him being another player we'll have to released for next to nothing

A waste of £7m, thank you Orta.....which crock from Boro' is next in at ER ?

Like it has already been mentioned PB is a striker that scores in batches and has regularly had droughts throughout his career. I am sure Bielsa has been hoping he'd get a goal and then the goals would start flowing again, however it would probably be best for him to be taken out of the starting line-up as he is now under so much pressure and it is made even worse by the lack of goals from the rest of the team. Ideal scenario would be that he is rested, we cruise in the next match and then he comes on as a sub, under no pressure, and nabs a goal too.

It also doesn't help that the main rival for his position comes on and nods in the equaliser with his 2nd touch just to rub salt in the wound

I’d happily drop Dallas from CM if it meant Nketiah played. What have been Bamford strengths and weaknesses this season? From what Biesla has said about the two, it sounds they’d work great together as a 9 and 10.
Having said that football is my second sport and never played it to any level so I’m not as clued in as to what it would do to us tactically. But a start swap for Dallas, with Klich dropping back there Bamford straight swap for Klich with Eddie up top, then we keep the same system, Bamford works hard can hold up the ball can pass well.
If you think Bielsa plays players all over the pitch I can’t see the issue, that’s why I’m very frustrated with Eddies lack of game time and not playing them both. I get the feeling he doesn’t like his attitude or something as to why he’s not started

Eddie has to start, he has to play, he is quality and we haven’t got to see it and if he goes in January, we will be absolutely be kicking ourselves! My brother is an Arsenal fan and is a proper football nerd and he thinks he’s quality and should be in the arsenal squad. It boggles my mind that he’s not playing.
That’s not knocking Bamford, he’s actually playing really well from what I’ve seen, but bloody hell hes turned into mouse in front of goal, he needs to stop stop trying to relax and take his chance, needs to be more instinctive and trust himself. Playing alongside Eddie would take the pressure off him too and he may play himself into form in front of goal and we’ll be winning 3/4-0 every week :duno:

Patrick Bamford vs. Luton:

25 touches
7 touches in opposition box
5 shots
3 on-target
2 chances created
1 tackle won
1 time fouled
1 goal (officially as it stands)*

Scored one for sure and was directly involved in the other. Five of his 7 touches in the box resulted in shots.

Patrick Bamford has missed more big chances (15) than any other Championship player this season. Paddy is averaging a goal every 8.5 shots, the third-lowest average of any Championship player with 7+ goals in 2019/20

Bamford has played a massive role in getting us to where we are this season, he will play a massive role in where we want to get to.
His conversion rate has been poor, but he is playing well overall, he needs help and somebody to challenge him for his spot. Let’s not get on his back again.

He may have played a part in getting Leeds to where they are but if He'd have taken more of his chances the points total would be even better,his conversion rate isn't great either and any of the other top scoreres in the division given his chances would have scored more,and if Leeds don't go up he will have been a big part why haven't

And if we do go up he’ll have had a big part to play, his conversion rate is poor, maybe needs to do less off the ball and focus more on scoring

My thoughts entirely but I suppose he's doing what Bielsa is asking of him, wether this is just too much and it's affecting PB's finishing who knows but he's never had an excellent strike rate and I've never regarded him as an out & out striker. Undoubtedly we are more solid when he plays but the trade-off is fewer goals. Can't blame him entirely as a lot of the team don't contribute enough goals either from some very good opportunities.

Spot on. Can’t fault the lad for attitude or effort, still annoys me we never saw him play behind Nkethiah, I think the two of them would’ve been top quality

Of course but if Leeds don't go up he will have had a big part to have played in that as well.

Looks like Bamfords miss last night the defender got a toe to it before it got to paddy, so not as horrific as first feared, let’s hope he ups his game for Saturday and bags a goal

perhaps he does have his uses:

Leeds' minutes per goal conceded WITH Patrick Bamford on the pitch: 134
Leeds' minutes per goal conceded WITHOUT Patrick Bamford on the pitch: 47
