Patrick Bamford: Has big ambitions

Patrick Bamford: Has big ambitions

Bamford has 12 goals to his name and he admits if he could hit 20 before Christmas, then the Chelsea boss may sit-up and take notice.

"If I did, say, get 20 goals before Christmas, which is some way off, I am on 12, then maybe Mourinho might have a look and give me a few goes on the bench but if not I just want to push on," he told the Weekend Warm-up on Sky Sports News.

Bamford is in his second spell at the Stadium:MK and he believes the loan spell has been a huge benefit.

"I think it is important as I was only playing 21 football at Chelsea," he said.

"Compared to League One there are more teams playing football so it is a bit different and when you step up there is a difference in physicality, I felt I was strong enough but there was a lot of development to do and I think since I came back this year you can see a difference."

Bamford revealed that he had been helped out by Spanish star Fernando Torres last season.

"Fernando Torres helped me out," Bamford revealed.

"I was going through a tough patch at the start of the seasons and the 21s managers Dermot [Drummy] just said go speak to him and I was a bit nervous and to be fair he was really good with holding the ball up and stuff like that."

The England youth international, who was signed from Nottingham Forest in deal worth over £1million in 2012, admits he wants to be a first-team regular at Stamford Bridge.

Asked where he wanted to be in five-years, he replied: "I would like to say being a regular in the Chelsea first team and being in England, that is my ambition."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
