Bamford, time to get rid!
 
 
No doubt he'll score now I've said that, but blimey, the guy is a fraud.
He offers absolutely nothing and has done ever since the debacle of bringing him back.

Pulis, do the right thing and put him out of his misery!

Just what on earth was he trying to do when we had a chance to break 2v2! Well I know what he was trying to do but get the basics right first and control the ball would be a start.

A bit harsh, I don't think he's suited to the left. They'll swap in the second half when Pulis wants Traore next to him.

Bamford's best position is on the right unless you play 2 up top. He needs to cut onto his left foot, he isn't a traditional winger.

I'd bet he will have a much better 2nd half assuming they do swap sides.

AK brought him in Jan so hopefully he wants him at forest.

That said chances of getting 6mil are Feck all. I am sure he wasn't that 'weak' in his first spell? I get loss of form but not loss of physicality[sad]

I don't think I've seen a player so easy to be knocked off the ball.

He's better coming off the right. But then traore is improving and making that his own.

Maybe upfront. You can see even from that overhead kick. It's where he is best. Reacting and finishing.

It should be fairly obvious to people that his career has declined since he left us the first time.

Three different loan spells where he had very little (if any?) impact and a move back to us, which on the face of it, was pretty baffling.

Definitely a player in there somewhere based on his last spell with us but his form has been poor for 3 years now. I would sell this week (but unlikely anyone would take him) so a loan spell looks likely.

Foo - I disagree, I think heís too clever not to turn it around, unfortunately at the moment I donít see it with us. He needs to go to a lower Champ side where he will be the big fish, and feels important, from there I could I see him picking back up where he was with us 3 years ago and having a good lower prem / championship career.

Forest maybe?

First time around at the Boro Bamford had the drive and ambition to try and prove he was Chelsea quality and was confident he could secure a career in the top flight. He used the opportunity to place himself in the shop window. He had a clear role in the side and took lots of confidence from regular goal scoring. The situation is now very different. He knows he isnít going to make the big time ( top 6 club) now and he is a bit part player at the Boro not the central figure he was last time. He looks lost to me at the moment but no better or worse than Britt or Braithwaite . We have problems up front and sadly I donít think Bamford is going to be answer. I would let him go to Forest and he might do what he did first time round here and rekindle his spark that seems to have gone at the minute

Bamford took on the Brighton defence yesterday winning headers and free kicks. Brighton were too well organised to be ruffled by a team with no passion yesterday. We went a goal down before we put them under any pressure and they began to panic for the first time. As Pulis said, we then had opportunities to put in crosses to put them under more pressure but Clayton, Howson and downing didn't take those opportunities.

Instead of being childishly negative about my thoughts, why dont you try posting your reasoning why I am incorrect, it may humanise you somewhat if you did.

Yes, several of the players around Bamford were disappointing too.

Braithwaite was lightweight and knocked off the ball too easily and is slow to pick a pass. Fletcher is just rank poor. Traore had a decent game granted as did Howson and Clayton first half. Assombalonga was poor when he came on. Presumably you think Fletcher and Braithwaite are a class above Bamford.

Pick him on Tuesday and we'll win again.

Over two points a game when he plays, less than one when he doesn't. What's not to like . . . except we could be top two if Monk hadn't taken so long to realise that (the Ipswich game) and Pulis ignored the winning run we were on when he first came.

Its funny how someone can post something vaguely intelligent and it just kills the thread. Like turning a light on in a room and all the XXXXXXroaches scuttling under cupboards.

People were posting stuff earlier in the season about anyone not being able to see that bamford is a class act is a XXXXXX. Obviously thats horseXXXXXXe. So is most of the stuff in this thread.

The bloke is an advertisement for finding yourself a decent little club where you get games and making yourself a career, rather than tootling off to a champions league club at the first sniff of any talent.

He was a very good player. Now hes playing ok. Not brilliant but not appalling. Players get worse through injury, age and lack of confidence. Hes young and has no bad injuries so i would put it down to him lacking a little confidence.

Pulis obviously recognises something as he has given him a bit of game time, and i tend to think he is the sort of manager who can help a player gain a bit of confidence back.

He offers very little out wide. People forget but this was also true in his first spell here. The difference being that he chipped in with goals when played there and had an excellent overlapping fullback in Fredericks. So the system worked.

However no chance he'd have been player of the year if he'd been kept out there.

He had a stinker yesterday playing in a position he'd never actually played for us before under karanka. It doesn't completely excuse it, but left wing is hardly his natural position.

By his own admission and based on the evidence of our play off season, his best position is centre forward. How many times has he played there this season?

He's a victim of his own versatility. I think he'll end up leaving and doing very well for another championship club.

Admittedly he probably doesn't suit Pulis system.

I've never played football, but have watched football at Ayresome Park and the Riverside for over 40 years. I believe I can usually judge a good footballer and a poor footballer.

"Bamford has a lot of goodwill in the bank from Boro fans."

Sums my opinion up. I hope he gets more chances and turns it around. Loved him last time he was at the club. I accept it's probably not a very objective assessment but who cares, I'm not the manager. My main memory of his play in the first season with us was he used to get close to the opposition cbs, back to goal, and when passes came in to his feet dummied the ball and turned the defenders inside out. Get back to doing that and he'll score create no problem.

Having said that, I like Assombalonga and Braithewaite too. Love Traore. Don't mind Gestede...

There was nothing wrong with Bamford playing out of position all game on the left then in 10. Didn't do anything wrong. Created a chance for himself 1st half nearly scored and did well down the left 2nd cut the ball back but that fat fraud XXXXXXt was nowhere to be seen in the box when it could have been a tap in. He's barely played this season so why don't you wait until he gets more games preferably in his best position best position before making your baseless assumptions.

You should be more worried about the players who play most weeks who are absolute garbage such as Braithwaite and fatty.

I'm sorry but the ball back across in the 2nd half was shocking, if he'd have looked up he'd have seen there was nobody there. He's not playing junior football so therefore if he's not able to look up and check then if there's somebody on then he needs wise up,he should have kept hold of it and look for a better option.

And then people (Pulis included) would be saying take a gamble/risk and do something early.
It was a good break, a decent ball into a dangerous area.
Traore plays exactly that type of ball in sometimes.

I saw a man City player do the same yesterday and there were 4 players ready to receive a ball.

It was shocking at the reluctance for anyone to want to break and beat a defensive Brighton side that gave us so few opportunities.

"The bloke is an advertisement for finding yourself a decent little club where you get games and making yourself a career, rather than tootling off to a champions league club at the first sniff of any talent.

He was a very good player. Now hes playing ok. Not brilliant but not appalling. Players get worse through injury, age and lack of confidence. Hes young and has no bad injuries so i would put it down to him lacking a little confidence."

Totally agree with this.

Indeedio I'm all for playing the ball in early, however the one exception to that rule would be if there's absolutely nobody in there to take advantage (like Bamford did). You may as well just kick it back to their GK.

It stopped 3 weeks before he started banging them in.

Don't think most people in this thread were wrong, he was not performing, though clearly some went a bit far in saying he was completely finished.
He is now playing well, whether that is because of a change of position or confidence.

I love this one from the ever knowledgable steptoe...

"OK , stick him up front in this side on his own , He is pushed off the ball too easily to do it?, he is not physically capable of holding people off & spinning as he was 3 yrs ago. When he gets games the cry is play him up there , well the guy up there has 12 , he has a lot less , he is a intelligent player....his assists say otherwise,I would love him to ram the words down my throat & stuff someone but it never happens?

Think he's gone in the summer"

Whats even more hilarious is how wrong this statement is as pointed out already!

At the time of this thread, he was out of position and not scoring and generally playing poorly.
Now by hook or by crook, he is in his favoured position and it is working of which i am very happy.

This is not rocket science guys!

As was said at the time, Bamford had little impact on a good deal of those wins so I don't buy that it was some hidden influence from his play.

He's undoubtedly impacting and contributing to games lately, but that's because he's performing better.

Obviously just my opinion though.

He's performing because he's playing in his best position. Shoving him out wide was a waste of his ability. Some of us had the foresight to see this, others wrote him off and wanted us to sell him.

Don't totally agree with this.

He has improved because of where he is playing, not because of fitness.

I got my dates mixed up. I thought we played Hull City on 30th January when it was Sheff Wed.

Still, he was only played out of position. I can't believe there are people who don't believe Bamford is a good goalscorer at this level.

He was playing really poorly although out of position on the left. I thought his best position was on the right because I wasn't sure he could play up front on his own but he's proven me well wrong if he carries on like this.

He looks a different player to the one we had last time in the Championship, he used to get bullied when he played up front on his own I thought. He's not letting that happen to him now.

I don't understand how you can be bullied on your own but can handle yourself if you have Vossen tucked behind you. He's never been bullied. He's never been weak.

Chappy112 Posted on 13/03/2018 13:53

Because Vossen got close to him so he could win the headers or hold the ball up or Bamford had someone to lay the ball off to quickly.

It's probably similar in a way now because under Pulis we get a lot more players forward, that helps Bamford a lot.

It's not that Vossen gave Bamford superpowers so that he no longer got shoved off the ball like he did away to Watford and Bournemouth lol.

Earlier in the season he was often shrugged off the ball or lost it with a poor touch, which I don't think was down to position, same with some of the golden chances missed.

Seems a confidence player, because he was holding it up far better against Leeds and Barnsley and I don't think it was down to the opposition.

No. Totally disagree. Assombalomga, Braithwaite, Gestede can hardly keep their foot on the ball. Bamford exceptionally clever at brushing off big forwards without his nous. Gets given fouls against quite a lot, which seems to be the ref assuming he must have fouled the player when he's just cleverly beaten him.

He 100% is not a Pulis player!

Pulis's hand was forced when Gestede got injured, luckily for us ALL, it has worked out.

What I meant by that statement you went looking for, is that he is not a hold it up, knock it on type of front player pulis likes, not that he cant play up front at all.
