Bailey has picked up some great form which is great timing for his contract extension (if we give him one ?) .

He’s out for two months apparently.

I semi jokingly suggested we bid for Szmodics from Blackburn last night, but if Durán really is out for 2 months then maybe we really should.
Or maybe we'll just start using Zaniolo as backup striker.

That's exactly what Emery said yesterday that he was going to do. I can't see it personally, but who knows.

I feel like I've said it a million times now, but when they signed both Zaniolo and Diaby were billed as being able to play anywhere across the front, including as striker. Zaniolo isn't exactly lighting fires as a midfielder, so maybe he'll actually prove useful now if he's given a different role.

If he can score a flying header a lŕ Cascarino like he did against t'Blades, I'm all for it. I'm finding it hard to believe he could do it regularly in the PL though.

Zaniolo's new brightly coloured bonce should make for an easier target to find when slinging crosses into the box.

I’ve said before that I think he looks like a centre forward that’s playing out of position so I hope he does get a chance as it would be interesting to see what he can do. Might be fuck all, but still.

I'd like to see him in that position also - he seems to have a bit more nous than Duran and I'd prefer him on the end of crosses, rather than creating them.

There's a clip doing the rounds of Durán back in training - a nice little boost if he's back fit. We're actually getting a a squad together all of a sudden...!

Great goal, all round performance was very good.

He's going to be a great player for us.

Probably needs to learn when to place a finish, but what a strike for his goal.

Great finish for the goal. He is chaos. There’s shots and bodies flying everywhere some of his finishing is awful. But he does have an impact.

There’s something weird going on though. I’m not sure he gets on that well with either his manager or team mates?!

Duran is absolute box office. He doesn’t fit our usual style but that could be where he makes a difference. Hopefully he will stay fit for the rest of the season.
