As always when players in certain positions fail to deliver - like Bamford we start looking around for saviours. This creates massive pressure on them to perform at the level we want. 'Unleash Eddie' is shouted to do what Bamford can't do at the moment. Eddie is a talented footballer but he is young with limited experience. Can he do what Bamford? Yes and no. He is probably a better goal scorer but can he do the donkey work? Does he need to? I worry about youngsters coming in with so much expectation. If he gets on the score sheet pretty quickly (within a game or two) after starting a game I think he will be fine if not the pressure mounts. He was a good 'second signing' the first should have been a proven goal scorer like Gayle or even Vydra (if he hasn't completely lost form) . Either way I hope Eddie starts a few games or he will be off back home.

The pressure is loaded by Bielsa not playing him. The more he does not play him and the more Bamford misfires the more the pressure escalates. As with others, in the past, he is made out a saviour and the answer to all our woes when really he is just another, viable, option deserving of a chance.

Giving our current performances and results this term some thought with international break I think Bamford is on a hiding to nothing with how MB wants the team to set up, play.
It’s been said before, we can dominate games all we like and play some decent football, all well and good if we are scoring from chances created.
Last season was exciting and we fell just short of the winning post with MB, but his football mantra started to show cracks and flaws during the run in when it mattered.
Failing to strengthen the team in Jan window was also significant factor in us falling away.

If we continue to ignore the shortcomings from last season and them being still an issue this season we’re going nowhere fast, centenary year or not!

I would like to see Bamford and Eddie both start, playing 3 at the back, 3 5 2, try 442 because 4141 isn’t working anymore.

My worry is I keep reading how stubborn MB is and does not bow to pressure to change things up. I also worry he appears not to see how injuries, suspensions, loss of individual player form impacts upon a small squad performance.
If MB can’t change or won’t change things when the results dip, makes me seriously wonder if he is the right manager to get us promoted.

I get we are only a quarter way into the season but we need to be aiming at being top of the pile at Xmas again, if we are then it probably is down to MB being the right choice and my worries will be just about Radz spending in next Jan window.

Onwards and upwards.
