UF Quick Throw: What now Cashley?

Chelsea have signed Russian Left-back Yuri Zhirkov for 18 million quid, leading to speculation over the future of Ashley Cole. While Zirhkov can play left wing, why sign one of the worlds best left-backs to play him out of position? So what next for Cole? Maybe he will chase the money up the M1 to Manchetser City. If this happens, Wayne Bridge will get to play second fiddle to Cole yet again. Poor Wayne.

I just love Yuri Zhirkov's name. Especially after saying it at least 10 or more times in a row.

I sure hope this doesn't mean we will see less of Cheryl.

i think Malouda is the one really threatened here.. which is a shame for him (and Chelsea fans) since I think he was one of the club's best players in 2009.

First negative story in the Sun after a crucial defensive gaffe by the Russian allows LFC to win at the Bridge and draws the ire of Ancelotti in the post-game comments:

"Don't Zhirk Your Responsibilities, Yuri!"

As a Chelsea fan, I will personally pay train fare for Cashley to leave town. The guy's got a hype-to-quality ratio at nearly the same level as Freddy freaking Adu.

As a Chelsea fan, the above comment is retarded. Cole is the best LB in the world, hands down. Zhirkov's main position is left midfield, he only plays LB for the national team. He will compete with Malouda and provide cover for Cole, and who knows, he could end up being something really special (look up his goal v. HSV in the UEFA Cup).
