Class act is Paddy. No matter how you rate him as a forward, he's a top guy and epitomises what Marcel Bielsa has done to Leeds United as a whole.

Should have been two goals also...How Schmeikel kept that header out was a little bit mesmorising ...as you say Leon a Majestic perormance .....

A wonderful performance today.
I was all for starting someone else after the last game but fortunately Bielsa didn't listen to me.

Unbelievable save how he squeezed that ball from under the bar, my first thought was it had crossed the line, sadly not after seeing a replay.

He was excellent today after some poor performances.

He is a good egg Paddy.

Having a really weird season though.

No Premier league player has missed more big chances (13).

And yet he is the joint 4th top scorer in the league.

He has the 7th best minutes to goal ratio in the league ahead of people like Rashford, Ings and Mane.

And only Kane and Vardy have more Premier league goal involvements (goals or assists) than Bamford out of English strikers.

Its been a great season for Paddy really but you then look at the chances missed and wonder is he clinical ? Or is it law of averages ie we create tons of chances?

Regardless on merit he goes to the Euros atm.

Gooo on Pads.

I would be sceptical about the big chances missed. I recall him getting knocked earlier on in the season for a couple of 'easy' chances missed that fell to his right foot. To me that is not a big chance if it is on your weaker foot. Likewise today he scored but that for me would be described as a half chance at best, similar with a couple of the Villa goals. So he has missed some chances he should have scored and scored some that he shouldn't.

I think he's a fairly inconsistent finisher, however I can see how he fits in well with the system. He's not a poacher fox in the box striker - more like a false no 9. He drops quite deep sometimes, and often drifts to the right, where he creates space in the middle for the FBs or the 10 as he drags the CBs wide. You saw that today, with Dallas underlapping him as Bamford went wide to the right. He is a particularly good passer of the ball for a striker, so he helps the system through exchanging passes and one twos with the wingers, midfielders and FBs, thereby linking play. He also helps the system by leading the press and through defending.

That is a very accurate description of what Paddy brings to the team. He isn't a great goalscorer (at this stage of his career), but he scores enough goals for because of his workrate, his willingness to get himself into goalscoring positions and the way we play the game.

Leads the line well for a lone striker, considering he's not blessed with either pace or physique. Can't fault his general all round contribution and he's actually executed some outstanding finishes too (this game and 2x at Villa spring to mind). Also seems a likable person off field too. I've really come around to rating him this season after being sceptical before. He's certainly more suited to the premier league where he's not facing 10 defenders every game.

Really pleased that he has managed to overcome his recent temporary lull. Top class character, top class striker :star:
