There is no denying that Kemar Roofe enjoyed an impressive stint at Leeds United.
The Walsall-born striker joined the Whites back in 2016 on a four-year deal from Oxford United, and initially struggled to find any form or consistency at Elland Road.
His initial early poor form led him to jokingly tweet about being under a goalscoring curse with the hashtag #PrayForRoofe – however once that drought came to an end, he never looked back, and it was the 2017/18 season where he came into his own.
Have these 15 current Leeds United players been capped at international level? – Yes or no? Have a go now!
Operating as the main striker, Roofe notched 14 goals for Leeds in that season and finished as the club’s top scorer.
He then smashed in 15 goals the following season for Bielsa’s Leeds and his form alerted Belgian giants Anderlecht who secured a deal for the former West Brom man.
The deal somewhat came out of the blue and left many sections of Leeds’ support surprised as he departed the club – he has since though struggled to emulate the form he showcased at the Whites in Belgium, with him being hampered with injury niggles.
Roofe has since become the centre of a debate initiated by Leeds fan Twitter account, All Leeds HQ, which asked whether Leeds fans would take Roofe back.
The question created a chasm straight through the middle of the Leeds fanbase, with their a clear divide on a potential Roofe return.
Take a look at the responses…..

Absolutely no way. Why would we every want a player who forced a move back?
— Dave (@dav1dman) May 11, 2020
Wasn’t good enough for championship can’t imagine why anyone would think he could handle the prem.

Probably not I think if we get promoted there's better strikers out there though wish him well

Nope. Decent player but not quite good enough to play as a CF in the Premier, and not versatile enough to play elsewhere.
— Rob Collins (@robcollins2016) May 11, 2020
No, was good but wasn't absolutely clinical either , like every striker he had his quiet spells / runs
— Dave Duracell (@DaveDuracell) May 11, 2020
Nah, great player but too injury prone and he wanted to go so no.
— David 'Carajo' Forest (@discodaveforest) May 11, 2020
In a heartbeat
— Dan🗿 (@DanPaton5) May 11, 2020
I would ,but, didn't agree with him wanting to leave
— Mark adams (@nagger1234) May 11, 2020
Genuinely, no. Once again he's spent most this season injured
— Jacob Wadsworth (@JacobWadsworth6) May 11, 2020
Yep. I’d have even taken Lasogga back this year 😂
— Luke Stenchion (@LukeStenchion) May 11, 2020
Would love to have him back! He was unreal always scored big goals for us
— ryan godfrey (@Ryan_Godfrey95) May 11, 2020
Yeah deffo only left because he didn’t wanna play second fiddle to bamford and we wouldn’t offer him the same contract can hardly blame him
— Adam (@AdamGodfrey_93) May 11, 2020
Not if we are in prem. Only played about 65% of his last season with us. Fantastic movement, but not consistent enough.
— Adam Clark (@addss2) May 11, 2020
Ye I would hes the best competition we could have for bamford cause the players who we’ve had since haven’t really gave him any competition
