    I think most Derby fans thought he was pretty average in the end and Schteve stopped playing him. He had a couple of decent strikes but ultimately flattered to deceive. What he needs more than anything is to look closely at his attitude on and off the pitch but also to play regularly. Whichever team he tried to go on loan at in the prem he wouldn't get the game time because he either isn't ready or isn't good enough. Too early to say on that front.

    ...agree with many that I wouldn't be keen on him coming to us. Largely due to his attitude and I think he's overrrated.

    You could tell in his interviews. His twitter etc. What school was it he went to again?

    He's always come across as a bright, switched on lad whenever I've heard him speak.

    Very ambitious though, probably why he's getting the stick about his 'attitude'.

    I've seen the jumped up little twat in action, completely snubbed Frank Clark, actually turned his back on him when Frank spoke to him and Lascelles. I was embarrassed just witnessing it.

    Bamford's in good company - D.H.Lawrence, Leslie Crowther, Ken Clarke, Albert Ball, Ed Balls and the legendary Richard Williams are amongst NHS's famous alumni.

    Just how did this thread become a class riddled exercise in bigotry about private schools?
    My kids all went to private school.
    One is now a police officer; one is a teacher in a deprived inner city school and the third is about to go to Uni, but has ambitions to work in a humanitarian organisation in medical or health related programme.
    I came from a council house family in Gedling.
    I chose to pay for a private education, not out of a sense of privilege, or to put my kids on the road to riches, but because I wanted them to receive an education worthy of the word, rather than what passes for education in many state comprehensive schools.
    I had to pay to get them the sort of education and out of school opportunities that I received in a state grammar school before politicians of all parties started monkeying around with education.
    Perhaps I should go to the Rant Thread...
    As to Bamford, I too don't think he will make an impression in the Chelsea team, nor do I think he will become a highly regarded Premiership player with any club.
    He will become, sadly, another journey-man footballer betrayed by the failure of the football industry in this country.

    I just said that he is an arrogant twat, blame the parents not the school.

    If Bamford had kept his head down and worked hard at Forest he would probably be in the same situation as Darlow, Lascelles and Osborn now.

    Greedy, cocky, arrogant ****.

    I just said he was "stereotypical" not that they're all twats. He is though. He's a massive twat

    Quite a lot of footballers are arrogant. I don't pay to watch them be polite.

    In fact being a **** is what made Maradona 10x the man Messi will ever be.

    I think it was Leonardo earlier this year on BBC who said that one of the main failings in English football is a lack of arrogance. According to him you wont become a Maradona or a Ronaldo just by being arrogant, but it raises a players game by giving a certain level of self belief. You are more likely to be impervious to negative fan reactions and more inclined to try something creative rather than just the basics. Players who aren't arrogant can end up playing within themselves. If your general ability is a 6/10 performance then abit of arrogance and cockiness will more often than not raise a players performance to a 7/10.

    Our fans seem particularly prone to developing a personal like or dislike for a player and then allowing that sentiment to tint our views of their footballing ability. Unless you plan on dating one of them why should their personality even matter?

    I wasn't really addressing Bamford specifically. I was just commenting on the typical 'he's an arrogant twat' response that's used to dismiss a player.
