Leeds United: Conor McGilligan voices concern over latest Patrick Bamford injury news

YouTuber Conor McGilligan has dropped a rather sarcastic tweet on Twitter following Patrick Bamford’s comments on his Leeds United return.

The striker had a torrid time of things last season as he only managed to feature in nine league games after a mountain of injury problems saw him largely restricted to the treatment room, and this season so far looks like it could be a similar story.

Bamford was forced off against Southampton before the half-hour mark last weekend and the striker himself has since confirmed on The Official Leeds United podcast that he likely won’t be fit enough to face Chelsea on Sunday.

McGilligan quoted the snippet of Bamford’s comments by saying: “No striker needed, all fine,” in response to Leeds’ failure or lack of intent when it comes to singing a backup striker.

Do Leeds need to sign a new striker?





TIF Thoughts on Leeds’ lack of desire to sign a new striker…

It is rather bizarre that Leeds appear content with their current squad despite a severe lack of first-team options behind Bamford, as only last weekend was Daniel James thrown on to replace the England international through the middle despite being a natural winger.

This was a low point in Leeds United's history, but how many points did they get in the 2003/04 campaign?

Leeds have been linked with a whole host of strikers such as Ollie Watkins and Che Adams, however, nothing appears to have moved past the interest stage, and with less than two weeks left in the transfer window, it remains to be seen whether or not Bamford’s injury will force Jesse Marsch and Leeds to dip into the market this late on.
