A lot of Leeds United fans have flocked to a post from Phil Hay, which relayed the news that Patrick Bamford and Luke Ayling had missed out on the squad.

Can you remember where Leeds finished in these league seasons? First up: 2018/19

Kalvin Phillips was included, but despite directly contributing to 18 goals this season for Leeds, Bamford was not selected by , with Ollie Watkins getting in ahead of him.

This news has annoyed many Leeds fans who thought that Bamford should have been included in the squad.

First time I’ve ever been bothered about an England selection. Unlucky for our Patrick. He’s been dynamite but recent misses costly. Time to push on again and another hat-trick at Fulham OnandOn”

@ExperientialBen

Watkins over Bamford is the biggest in world football”

What a surprise”

@crighters1

Do you think Bamford was robbed?

Yes, he should have been included

Yes, he should have been included

No, he didn't deserve it

No, he didn't deserve it

Hay claimed in a follow-up tweet that he thinks Bamford will be “gutted“, and after such a stellar season from the former Chelsea man, we can see why Hay thinks that.

This post continued to draw in angry Whites fans.

Shambles”

“Can’t believe Watkins got the nodd before him”

The fact that Bamford has missed out on the England squad has clearly irritated these Leeds fans who feel that the 27-year-old deserved a chance.

Certainly, if you compare him with Watkins both in terms of goals and assists, you could argue Bamford has had a better season, so we understand why these Leeds fans are annoyed.
