supporters have been reacting on Twitter after Patrick Bamford’s poor performance in their 2-1 victory over Sheffield United. 

The outfit secured all three points in their Yorkshire derby with , but their top scorer came under fire from several sections of the club’s fanbase.

Bamford has bagged an impressive 14 Premier League goals for Marcelo Bielsa’s men this season, but couldn’t find his shooting boots for the visit of Sheffield United.

Fortunately for the Chelsea academy graduate, Jack Harrison’s first-half strike and a Phil Jagielka own goal were enough to move Leeds past the 40-point mark, but Bamford’s underwhelming display didn’t go unnoticed by the supporters.

“And Bamford unusually quiet too”

“Bamford has had a really quiet game. Not surprised he’s gone off.”

@EmptyUK

“Raph has been our worst player today with Bamford. Both aren’t on it in contrasting ways”

@matteohib94

“Bamford is the only player not offering anything. Otherwise we should be 3-4 goals in”

@robayeit

“Bamford doesn’t look fit to me”

@garykeast70

“I can only assume Bamford has his focus on his Easter eggs tomorrow ….”

The Whites have taken the top-flight by storm throughout 2020/21 after a 16-year absence, and Bamford has been one of the most surprising and impressive factors of a marvellous campaign. Therefore, we’re sure the Leeds faithful will let the 27-year-old off for this below bar display.
