So they've gone for 1 and are not playing him.

Read rumours on the Leeds forum that they're running a bit closer to the edge with FFP than the owners would like everyone to think.

I also see that 2 senior members of the Leeds staff pleaded guilty to EFL charges of trying to influence the ref at half time against Millwall.

Old Man Andrews Man who cannot even run judges brilliant striker......


Even the majority of Leeds fans are saying he's a donkey and a complete waste of £35,000/wk.

They're also complaining that Bielsa has brought this fella in from Leipzig and is now claiming he wont be ready for 4 weeks yet Tyler Roberts is brought back into the first team after 3 months out injured and U23 game.

Leeds needed two strikers in the window, should have gone for Wells imo.

Should still go for Allan Clarke. He shirley must be a free agent, would be Leeds through and through and probably no worse than Bamford

Peter Lorimer is probably a free agent too.

Lots of chances being created though, his movement is some of the best you'll ever see.

The fact you've been able to see just how many chances he creates proves my point exactly, you've just shown how good Bamford is whilst trying to Whiteknight Ian.

I’ve heard chances created is what wins you football games and not goals, along with attendances.

Of course not, you're being ridiculous now. Your stats demonstrate Bamford is getting in the end zone and getting chances very frequently. It would be more concerning if he didn't get chances at all like a lot of strikers.

End zone? Get out :arrow:

What my stats demonstrate is that, yes he is getting into good positions, but he hasn’t got the ability to put them away. If he was as brilliant as you say, he’d be putting away half of those clear chances, putting him on 22 goals, then yes you could say he was brilliant.

I think there is more to being a great striker than the goal output. It is like saying goaltenders are only good if they keep clean sheets, simply not true. We will have to agree to disagree on this one old bean.

Thanks for confirming you’re trolling with the use of goaltenders.

Yeah this thread is full of Leeds bullshit.

They’re going to fcuk it up again for all the reasons I (and also Stranded some time ago) have outlined.

I don’t want to hear about those dirty Yorkshire cnuts any more.

There are far more classy sides worthy of attention in the league.

And no, not Fulham.

Is there any chance we could have a Rival Watch thread that discusses rivals?

Edit: I think a few of us have posted more-or-less simultaneously there.

Brentford for example, are a really interesting team. I’d love to them go up. WBA are a decent bunch.

Brentford Bristol or Preston, would like to see a team who has never been in the premier league go up.
