There’s only so many times you can play with fire before you get burned.

That’s pretty much the feeling that surrounds Patrick Bamford at Elland Road right now. Whilst Leeds United may have beaten Middlesbrough last night, with the winner coming through Mateusz Klich, things could have been a whole lot easier for the Whites if a certain someone had taken his opportunities.

The 26-year-old had to ‘guilt-edge chances’ during the game, one in each half. The first was a header that he planted straight at the goalkeeper, whilst the other came from a yard out when he couldn’t get a clean connection on the ball, although some are claiming that it was down to good defending on the part of the defender rather than Bamford being terrible.

Does Bamford get too much blame for the club's struggle in front of goal?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Either way, it wasn’t enough to prevent the Whites’ top scorer from coming in for a shed load of criticism from plenty of Leeds United fans on social media, with one or two saying that it was time he be dropped from the team for good after his recent run of form, going without a goal in 10 of the last 11 games.

Do you see Marcelo Bielsa changing things anytime soon?
