Bamford returns to Chelsea - Should he be given a chance here?

Patrick Bamford has put an end to what he calls a "terrible time" at Crystal Palace on loan and will return to Chelsea in January. I am asking you whether or not he should be given a chance at Chelsea under Guus Hiddink?

Chelsea have had their striker issues in the last two out of three seasons with a lack of goals being the main problem. Apart from last season, we have really, really struggled to find someone who can consistently score the goals you need if you are to be successful or to at least mount a realistic challenge for honours.

Chelsea as with any transfer window, will be linked with numerous strikers to come in to kick start our season but why spend money when we have someone who has a natural ability to score goals on our books already?

It pains me to say it but look at Harry Kane at Tottenham after being given a chance! A natural goalscorer given a chance (and when I say chance I am referring to a run of games to settle into the pace of the Premier League) and he has flourished. Why can't we give that chance to Bamford?

Speaking of his time at Palace, he said:

"If I am being honest, my time at the club has been terrible. No one wants to sit on the bench and not play.

Things haven't worked out for whatever reason. I would have been more content if I had been given a chance and not taken it, but I haven't started a game in the Premier League.

For a young player like me, that's not what you need so I had to take my development into consideration and make it the priority.

It is my decision. The coaches have only found out I am going – I think the manager and the coaching staff already knew, people like the physiotherapists.

So I have been saying goodbye. It was decision and I think I had to do it because I haven't been playing.

For my development, it's crucial now I do play games.

That's been the frustrating thing for me – I felt I could carry on my form from last season.

After watching the games, I know I can fit in at Premier League level. It's just difficult when you're not playing and you come in for five minutes here and there, 20 minutes here and there, or don't play for a couple of weeks.

You don't really get a run, and for a striker it's really important to get that run of games. I think if people have seen me play at other levels, I have never been out of the team for longer than one game.

That's kind of showed with the goals as well.

I think now after the new year I will go back to (train with) Chelsea and take it from there.

It's then up to me to try and work hard and see what happens. I think I have to be open to all options now. Ideally I'd like to stay in the Premier League and I think there are a few options to do that.

Now it's about assessing which one is best and go from there."

Why can't one of those options be to stay here, take the place of Loic Remy who looks to be off to Swansea on loan in the next window and to be given a run of games to show what he can do? Our season is a virtual write off so we have nothing to lose?

What do you people think about Bamford? Do you think he could turn out to be as successful in this league with goals as Harry Kane has been, or would you send him out on loan to another Premier League club again?
