Zhirkov will be missed if chelsea dont find a replacement to him soon just like chelsea missed carvalho last yr and then finally had to wait till january to sign luiz. Im afraid AVB is making the same mistakes which the past managers have done in the past. All we need is flair and 2-3 more players cos drogba essien and that #$%$ kalou will be gone in january. And if a player like lampard or ramires is injured then we' end up nowhere. I hope AV realised this fast!!!
