Leeds United fans on Twitter have once again been talking about Patrick Bamford just days before the start of the season.

Bamford has been a polarising figure for the fanbase throughout this summer, and many discussions on social media have centred around the forward.

Many supporters were disappointed with him at times during his first season turned at Elland Road, but after influential fan account @TotallyLeeds posted a highlight reel from his first season opinions were divided.

Indeed, he scored just nine goals last term, but due to injury problems and rotation with Kemar Roofe, he only made 23 appearances.

He actually scored every 161 minutes in the league last season, but that hasn’t been enough to win some fans over

Some supporters remained negative about Bamford, stating that his stats were misleading and that the highlight reel posted doesn’t show the number of chances he has missed.

Others were more positive about Bamford, stating that although he wasn’t brilliant last season, he’s shown signs of being a quality addition to the squad.

A few supporters went even further than that, stating that the 25-year-old is already playing at a good level.

One user pointed out that his goals per game ratio is similar to former stars such as Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Tony Yeboah, while another was quick to praise the striking instincts on show in the highlight video.
