Yuri Zhirkov

Looks a great player, and he is very versatile down the left. I think a combination of Yuri and Cole down the left is a great attacking option. In Fact and combo of Cole - Yuri, or Cole - Maloda, or even Yuri Malouda, are all good options

I've loved him as a player for a few years, and was absolutely delighted when we signed him....but he needs to play more to prove all those people who have said he's a poor signing wrong. He is a world class player, but needs more opportunities to prove it.

Reminds me of Essien, can do a job at full back but i feel he's being wasted there. He looks great taking on players, we have lacked that since Robben i feel. Perhaps this seasons aim is to get him back to full fitness and adapted to england and the prem. Next season when the likes of Ballack, Belletti and possible even Deco & Joe Cole move on that should move him up in the pecking order and perhaps we can see him play in the diamond as well as left back giving him plenty more game time

Him and Ash should tear up the left side, Malouda has done nothing wrong, but Zhirkov looks like he can do the business, needs more a chance.

Totally agree. He's a fantastic player and will secure a starting berth soon. As everyone says, him and Ash on the left would be a very potent threat.

I think gradually giving him game time is working ok for Carlo and I like the way he rotates a few players,

look at our position compared to UTD and Arsenal..they play understrength teams and go out of the best cup competition in the world, we play players sparingly and hopefull they still have the legs to compete in the three competitions they are still in all the way.

we have the best LB in the world and a good player in Malouda if we are playing with wingers, Having Zhirkov as back up or rotation for either is a good position for the team and the player.. time is on his side and if he is good enough he will become a nailed on starter, there's no rush.

Strange thing with Zhirkov is he has a seventies look, literally. Put him in the old kit and he wouldn't look out of place; this is about appearance although I think he could have played as well. I like him a lot gets stuck in, gets forward. A cold winter's night in the north west or north east is bit like busman's holiday for him.

Do you ever have anything positive to say about anyone or anything to do with Chelsea? There's always a negativity in every post.

Paying more then 20m € for a back-up player is something I cant be positive about. Im sorry

And as I said, I like Zhirkov. Problem is just that I cant see it coming that he will be prefered over Malouda or Ashley.

The looks of George Best and the playboy attitude of Petr Cech...
