I’m in the Gore camp.
Stop focusing on Bamford.
What kind of service is the lad really getting from midfield and wingers?
Answer that truthfully.
Is Harrison putting it on a sixpence for him?
How about Klich cutting in and having a shot and pretending it to be a cross.
And Dallas, row X-ing it.
And Alioski, who’s not too bad, but is not great.
And Costa, drops shoulder, mazy run, sometimes the odd through ball, will shoot more often than not in and around the box, or does the same as Harrison but keeps it on the ground.
Midfield not good enough at attacking, no awareness of what a stiker might like to feed off, shit balls 80% of the time. As Gore mentioned on twitter if Bamford didn’t throw himself at half the shit he was given, his stats would be okay. Shit crosses and balls, and a striker trying too hard. Is where we are at.
In reality if your honest, he’s only getting one or two chances a match, the rest are shite, not even chances.
Eddie comes on gets a tap in, or scuffs one, he’s not the messiah, midfield is woeful and Pat is getting all the stick for that.
If Eddie can feed off the shit balls, richochets, daisy cutters and scraps then play him and we’ll come 7th.
