'Now you understand' - Many Leeds fans react to Bamford message after Blues clash
The biggest talking point in the build-up to the game against Birmingham for Leeds United was that Patrick Bamford was missing from the matchday squad.
It handed the chance to Eddie Nketiah to start his first Championship game for the club, and despite not scoring he played a big role in securing a 5-4 victory for the Whites.
Bamford was out with a dead leg, and Leeds confirmed that he should be available for the West Brom game after travelling to St Andrew’s with the squad.
Bamford instead took up commentary duties for LUTV and sent a Twitter message after the game claiming it was a great clash to debut his skills on the microphone.
“Wow, what a first game to commentate on,” he wrote on his personal Twitter account.

The majority of Leeds fans though decided to just talk about how his presence was missed in the final third with Nketiah up there instead, asking the 26-year-old to get back fit and ready for the New Years Day trip to West Brom.
A win against the Baggies would give Leeds control of the Championship, and also a three-point gap to their nearest rivals in the race for promotion.
Get back on that pitch lad. Missed you big time
