The Leeds United striker is a divisive figure among fans.
The 25-year-old endured a stop-start first season with Leeds, managing to play in only half of United's Championship games last term due to injury, before his theatrics in a fiery game against Aston Villa saw him slapped with a two-match ban, missing the playoff first leg against Derby County.
This season, the English hitman enjoyed a brilliant start to the new campaign by netting four Championship goals in the first month, but he hasn't scored since August in a run of form that frustrates some fans of the Yorkshire club.
But the former Chelsea youth is determined to show his detractors at Elland Road exactly what he can do.
Bamford told The Yorkshire Evening Post: "I am not really one to look at Twitter, but people were telling me: ‘oh you are getting slated blah, blah’. I know that is a minority and the fans who have come to watch the games have been brilliant and they have always sung my name.
“It was a hard one last year; signing for a big amount of money and then getting injured and not playing and then there was the disappointment of not getting promoted.
“I feel like they did not get the best of me. This year it is my aim to show them and once you get Leeds fans on your side, it can only be good news."
Barring a surprise, Marcelo Bielsa is set to start Bamford up front again this week as fifth-placed Leeds host Birmingham City.
