Those Tears

Those Tears

The tears streaming down the face of David Luiz, after the final whistle, showed just how much the game meant to the Brazilian.

Luiz, along with Ramires, was quite possibly our stand-out player and upon being asked about those tears, he offered a very plausible explanation, commenting,

"I have a heavy heart. I cried I waned to win."

"I dreamed one day of playing in the Club World Cup Final. I play for a big club and big clubs win big games and big titles."

"You can cry one night. Tomorrow is another day. The difference was one goal and we had many chances to score. The difference was details."

"I congratulate Corinthians but I cannot be happy. I wanted to win this title."

"I can run for three hours if I want because physically I want to be able to put my head on my pillow every night and know that I have done my best."

"I think I played well and say thanks to God for my life always, in good moments and bad moments. I have a heavy heart but I have an amazing family. I have a great job and a great life."

Indeed you do, you have a lifestyle that most of us envy, talent by the bucket-load and time to come back and lead a new Chelsea to further glory!

Now that's commitment. If only we had 11 players on the field who thought this way, we'd be a pretty formidable force. He sang and danced away when we won, he shed tears when we lost. Talent is one thing, commitment, devotion to the cause and the desire to win are what makes a good team brilliant. Despite his obvious flaws, this is one player I personally can't dislike.

If you wanted to see how committed this guy was watch Chelsea vs Qpr last year .. the one where we received two red cards !!

I said it earlier today, and will say it again. After this match, the man who rallies the lads and not tears them down in public, shows raw emotion, courage and a will to win will be Chelsea's next Captain. When JT calls time, Luiz will be the one with that armband and rightly so. Vice Captain either Rammy (language issue tho.. when talking to refs) or Cahill. Everyone else is either too nice, quiet or just simply better at given instructions then giving them.

once JT said "Luiz is a captain in making"......

i always forgive him. when ever he does some abysmal challenge or goofy thing. cant help but love his wee face. bet he gets in and outta right trouble with his missus lol. anyone noticed that he has a habbit of being world.class or world clown...often in the same match. good ol luiz :)

There is a reason I have a #4 David Luiz Chelsea sweater....because he gets most everything right...he has passion for his team and club and he cares...he is competitive. I will be breaking out my #4 shirt this Sunday when my son and I travel over the big pond to watch the Aston Villa game in person... If I were to purchase players for Chelsea...the first question would be..."how much heart does he have"...I know the answer to that question regarding David Luiz....
17/12/2012 18:12:00
@slash_blue Thats just one of the examples you could state. Fact is, he wears his heart on his sleeve and can never be accused of not giving a 110% every time hes out on the field. Sadly, can't say the same about some others currently wearing the Chelsea jersey.
17/12/2012 18:24:00
This guy frustrates me so much. On the one hand he is careless and reckless and I beg of Chelsea to get him out the Club ASAP. But every now and then he comes out of a performance like yesterday where he was pretty much flawless reminding me of what he is capable when he is up for the challenge. If only he treated every game like a cup final he would no doubt be one of the best defenders in the world.

Well y'all have said what is to say in this article, we got too mych softees in the team and players who's life style are too comfortable, u see chelsea players before the roman era busting their left nuts to win as soon as its kick off!!! We just have too many divas in our club right now and we need to beef up with experience and steel

so painful we lost this match but i saw it coming. Rafa i would say just didn't give himself enough flexibility with the team he set out yesterday! but to me i tought he still had options but refused to use it. i tought lampard justified his inclusion in the team until corinthians started pressing us hard and it was at this point i was shouting where i was watching the match that 'where was the balance in the team'. when corinthians started pressing us we were disorganised, giving away the ball and just couldn't regain it back quickly hence balance was needed. i was expecting changes like azpi coming in for moses, then luiz moved into midfield, mata wasn't in the game could have been substituted for Mikel then maybe oscar for hazard as it was clear benitez has no interest removing lamps from the setup. i belive if this subs were made , balance would have been restored into the game and we wouldn't have conceded and maybe we would not score too but will see out the game into penalties. this is why i blame benitez for the defeat because he didn't sort for balance in the game. am not coach and i dont intend to be but benitez has been clamouring about balance for weeks but was dissapointed he didn't sort for it against corinthians
