    Not the most damning words but Bamford appears to be putting it on the long finger. With all the talk of him having an offer to study in Harvard you would think that he had the intelligence to balance a promotion push with applying for a passport that his Ireland supporting uncles may already have.

    have no interest in bamford. crystal clear his heart isnt with us. enough good strikers coming through for us to be able to give him the two fingers before he eventually gives us the two fingers

    Yeah, those quotes bother me too. Really keen on having him on board - purely because he is different to anything else we have currently - and said I’d give him til September but I’m quickly losing any semblance of interest.

    Is he much different to McGoldrick? Any time I have seen him I liked how he could come short and go long, like McGoldrick did against Georgia. David can have a good couple of years for us now he's in the PL so Bamford isn't as essential as I thought a few months ago. What will the summer hold for our 18/19 year old lads too?

    I think he is a more natural striker and a better finisher from what I have seen of both in the Championship. Generally better technique.

    The question for me (ignoring whether or not he is a complete w@nker and should displace born in Ireland or already fully on board) is whether he offers more than Hogan, Maguire & O’Brien and I think he very clearly does.

    But he doesn't offer more than mcgoldrick, long and possibly Obafemi. What he offers is less then 100% commitment. And thats not rock N roll for us.

    Do you think? I don’t think I could state that with the type of confidence you have to be honest. Oba is essentially unproven, Long has been malojan for 2 years and McGoldrick is at or around the same level and if he’s ahead it ain’t by much. And he offers something different to all 3.

    For sure, I have covered that off above and in previous posts. All I’ve said is he told Mick he’d do the necessary at the end of the season. At that point he’s either demonstrably on board or dead to me.

    He's 6/7 years younger than McGoldrick and Long anyway so he offers far more in that respect, in the highly unlikely event that our promising young starlets don't quite fulfil their potential.

    I fully agree with Stu's assessment and I'm also disappointed he doesn't seem more enthusiastic about joining up with us. Coming in at the tail end of the qualification campaign is a bit cheeky, if it even happens.

    Two game ban after making a show of himself at the weekend so not much football to ‘concentrate’ on, probably just one game.Maybe he could see his way to filling out a few forms in between and if not, perhaps it could be confirmed that the chase is over.A good player but unfortunately not an Irish one.

    A playoff semi final (second leg) and potentially a playoff final to 'concentrate' on, I doubt his stance will have changed much.

    With Leeds now out of Premier League contention, I bet we see Bamford come running to us now in a way to boost his profile & get a big money move. If he's motivated he could add value, mercenary or not, but will certainly put many people off.

    I've been unimpressed by his lack of enthusiasm but wasn't his reasoning that he wanted to focus solely on Leeds until the end of the season? Therefore if he comes running to us now he's only honouring his word, in a way. I'm not sure declaring for the BIG would boost his profile enough to get a big money move anyway. He's at his level, more or less.

    He seems more of the moral standard that we have running the FAI .

    Not exactly the kind of player ya want your kids watching .

    Half hearted about playing anyway . Time to Pass on this guy .

    To quote Duffer: 'Everyone has a tumble'. Plenty of strikers and wingers are done for diving. None of us like to see it but it's hardly a cardinal sin. Kane, Aguero, Salah, Aubamayang, Vardy, Messi, Ronaldo - they've all been book for simulation.

    Ah but what he did against Villa wasn't a dive, it was several levels below that.
