From what he stated back in 2015 in that article, he was frustrated sitting on the bench and wanted to be playing.. well Mr Bumfluff, from a supporters point of view and having to pay to watch you TRY and play was extremely frustrating.. this may be a little harsh but some of the games I saw you "play" it looked like you'd never played football before.. first touch, passing, shooting, everything on those occasions was very poor and that's a compliment.. came to us on loan with very high expectations because of being Championship Player of the Year having scored many goals for Middlesbrough, a fantastic achievement and accolade.. but with us, then Norwich and Burnley, if I'm correct, a total failure.. three Premiership clubs that gave him the chance at the highest level and he was a total disaster at all three clubs.. so I don't think it was any of the clubs fault, maybe Mr Bamford needs to look at himself and realise he wasn't good enough and isn't as good as he seems to think he is..

He thinks alot of himself and thrived on the acoldades of the Boro faithful when he was here. That boosted his ego and encouraged him to try clever tricks etc in the Championship which in fairness did pay off. But, likes to be a big fish in a little pond and the reading of the game by Prem defenders is a lot better than in the Champ and they simply didn't fall for it. He found his level and it wasn't the Prem.

Hes not going to be good enough for the Premier League in my opinion and he falls over nearly as much as Grealish so not for me.

Not for me either. He doesn't instill me with confidence that he can do the toughest job in the EPL, namely score goals as the main striker. Not convinced of his work ethic either. There are better options out there and as another poster has said, 'if Leeds are wanting to get rid of him, that says it all'.

It would sadden me if we bought him. H struggled in parts last year in the championship and struggled whenever he was in the premiership, what's suddenly made him good?

 


Why would anyone chose to be a Seagull? The Eagle is a far superior creature.

The Seagull lives under it's damp pier meekly looking out, blinded by the sheer quality of the Eagle's palace.

16 goals this season, and likely to be surplus to requirements at Leeds. What do you think, Mattteo?


Judging by the responses so far Oldfella, the answer is a resounding "no we don't want him".

A waste of space as is Sorloth.
Surely Freedman can identify and target "natural goalscorers " like Defoe for example

You have a point but Roy's management style destroyed Sorloth,who now scores for fun and is attracting by all accounts,many top European Clubs and his asking price is more than anything we will be paying for new signings we desperately need.

I'm with you on that. I think he'd struggle in top flight football.

Didnt he make a few derogatory comments about the club after his time here when on loan, dont think hed have the front too come back even if we did try to sign him.

Its threads like this that I seriously despair about the mentality of our support. I mean 'Bumfluff', really?

Leeds need to replace him as he is not PL quality at all, why the hell we want him (especially as we have seen him before and how poor he is).

What next bring back Tom Soares ?
