TalkSport pundit Gabby Agbonlahor thinks Patrick Bamford has not been wanting the identical since his injury-ravaged season final 12 months.
The 29-year-old striker missed essentially the most of final season with lingering accidents which noticed Leeds United solely survive relegation on final day of the season.
Former Villa man believes Leeds badly want one other striker as Bamford appears slower and weaker this season.
“What they’re lacking is a striker who can put the ball behind the online. Bamford appears one million miles off it. He’s bought no legs, not lots of power and he’s not even holding the ball up anymore. – stated Agbonlahor.
“Rodrigo has been erratic when he’s performed there. They’re actually lacking out on a high striker. Other than that, they’re actually entertaining.
“Bamford by no means had velocity however he appears even slower now, sluggish. Even when the ball’s coming as much as him for a one-two off a participant, he’s getting beat by a defender. He doesn’t look agile and generally accidents can try this to you.
“That’s why he was introduced off. He doesn’t take a look at it in the meanwhile.
“He would possibly want video games to get his health again, however in the meanwhile, he appears like a shadow of the Bamford I noticed two years in the past.”
