Patrick Bamford called ‘cheat’ twice by commentator as fans say ‘what a man’
Patrick Bamford was twice dubbed a 'cheat' during commentary of Leeds' Championship contest against QPR – and fans were loving the brutal honesty.
The 30-year-old, who made an appearance for the England senior side back in 2021, was adjudged to have gone down easy during the closing stages as Leeds took all three points thanks to Crysencio Summerville on Wednesday. The fury took place late on as Bamford got Asmir Begovic sent-off as QPR's struggles deepened.
Taking place in the 94th minute of the contest with Leeds winning 1-0, Bamford went down under very minimal or no contact after flicking the ball past Begovic just outside the box – going down over some outstretched studs. The co-commentator then said: "Oh there's no touch! He's a diving cheat."

Bamford then lined up the free-kick as his new commentary friend added: "Bamford the cheat will take the free-kick, left-footed from the edge."
Nick London was the man with the strong opinion sat next to Andy Sinton in the commentary booth for QPR+ and their own iFollow stream of the contest – with all Football League clubs having their own feed.
One response from a fan said: "The commentator in Leeds vs QPR absolutely killed me, what a man." A second added: "More commentary like this please."

A third posted: "Very entertaining commentary on the QPR steam." A fourth added: "Deffo a dive but the QPR commentators are so biased its unreal."
One fan backed the forward by saying: "Although there was no contact. Begovic’s studs were high towards Bamford's thigh, Bamford was forced to take avoiding action & fell over."
Another supporter agreed: "He’s done enough to put him off balance and if Bamford doesn’t move there he’s getting a broken ankle."
