. Leeds, that @MarkBHarrison1: Bamford blaming the floodlights is a good one. He misses sitters on a Saturday afternoon just the same. I’ve honestly played in Sunday league with players who’d bury that chance 9 out of 10 times.

@MMMNoodleSoup: If Bamford and Costa are seriously using the floodlights as an excuse as to why they missed golden opportunities they need to play in a lower league @NestorWatach: Looked like both Bamford and Costa blaming the floodlights. Not seen anything quite like their missed chances tbf @David_Naylor: Looks like the floodlights put off Bamford and Costa apparently. Genuinely. Never mind! On and on @Wilko1954: Those damn floodlights eh? Bamford and Costa seem to be the only players to have ever suffered this problem, but I’m sure it’s not their own ineptitude
