Will always be a hero for his 2 excellent seasons but he is increasingly unreliable.

4 seasons here 2 of which spent injured the majority of the time.

Sentiment aside should the club be looking for a replacement not competition?
Yep. But the issue is the wages. We're not paying him £75k a week to sit on the bench. Another Radz masterstroke.

Why ? Orta .
Does seem Bamford picks up injuries so easily now , but wasn't that ever the case ? Somehow got two seasons out of him relatively injury free but you get the feeling that isn't going to be the case anymore . I do think this shows the club need someone to replace him as you can't rely on Bamford being around for anything like a full season . He is the new Forshaw in terms of injuries !

If we couldn't find a better striker than Bamford for 5 years, then Orta shouldn't be in the job.

I can't help but think of Michael Bridges when it comes to Bamford. He had one good season then struggled with injuries.

The speed at which fans turn against players is shocking to me... I feel I've gone from Paddy's only detractor, (and that from a match day viewpoint, I've never used the trope injury prone for him) to his biggest supporter without really changing my opinion....

To me we look a much more balanced team with him in it but I do worry that he will miss large portions of the season due to injury.
Same could be said for Joffy also.
On that basis I would like to see us sign another forward before the window closes, on loan if necessary.

Not sure folk have turned against Paddy faaip. The evidence is clear to see that Paddy has struggled with injuries since he's been with us. As somebody said he's had one full season which got him into the England squad. If we have a main striker who now seems injury prone every game then the concern from fans is understandable. I've always championed Paddy when he's had good or bad games, I love it when he plays and his tears of frustration when he broke down with his foot last season was hard to watch, but I do now fear for his career.....hope I'm wrong.

When in the championship; Bamford missed a huge number of very good chances. At Wolves; his header should have been down to the goal line, he should have scored. I like his effort; chasing down the defenders and runs in behind but he has never been prolific in front of goal. We're into our third season in the PL and we need someone that is better than PB so that he is our back up; not a young promising talent, we have that in Joffy.
Orta needs to go and make a statement of intent and sign someone that has proven they can do it at this level. Watkins would be good if we can get him or a Giovanni Simeone, someone that displaces PB would improve the team. IMO

Phil on his podcast cleared up any misunderstanding regarding Bamford.

Paraphrasing but Phil said this.

"Marsch said Bamford is not fit, he has to he managed and is being judged purely on how he feels on a game by game basis"..

On the same podcast Phil said the narrative regarding a striker has definitely changed.

Earlier in the widow it felt certain one would arrive but now the club are pushing the we are happy line.

That has to set alarm bells off, if we don't get an other striker in we are looking at a relegation battle again, does the board never learn ?

The vitriol directed at some of our players by some members of this forum is disgraceful.

The match day threads in particular are very grim reading.

It comes accross to me like they are just being very cautious with PB to avoid the situation we got last season where we seemed to rush him back and then he broke down. Clearly he is somewhere near match fit and somewhere near uninjured but he felt something on Saturday and wisely, at this point in the season, decided to come off rather than turning a tweak into something that could rule him out for a few months. It is very easy when coming back from one type of injury to end up injuring a different part of your body as you subconsciously try to protect the recently recovered area.

I wouldn't be surprised if Bamford starts the next match.

Patrick Bamford has confirmed himself he has a groin strain and will miss the Chelsea game.

We don't need a striker though.

I've never rated Bamford as a striker but admit he does bring something to the team however I feel he's becoming a liability and we can't rely on him.

On another thread I said he needs replacing as the primary striker. Fully fit, which seems a pipe dream currently, could he replicate the season he had two years ago?

For me it’s another big gamble. I hope come the winter window we are not desperately rooting around for a striker that no one else wants.
