David Luiz Appreciation Thread


Recommended Posts

He's definitely a player that divides opinion but for me he's outstanding. Stats don't lie and we are a better team with him in the side. He's also one of few players we have with the kind of mentality Drogba, Ballack et al. Willing to put a foot in. Outside of England he's highly rated and a big reason why we've enjoyed cup success over the last two seasons as well as a brilliant run at the end of the 2010/11 season.

Hopefully with him out the side people will see how important he is and he'll get the respect he is overdue after the World Cup this summer.

he'll make one mistake, and everybody will be on his case again: media, fans etc, calling for him to play in midfield, saying he's useless/doesnt care etc etc


"He isn't suited to the style of the Premier League" will be the outcry. Though of course, he's good enough for Barcelona and that tiny footballing nation Brazil. Strange how the same was said of Modric, Silva and Mata and look how that turned out. For a guy that has won major trophies for club and country the lack of respect is astounding.

Nibs will be along soon telling us all he's a midfielder.


And he'll be right.


Nice on DB!


Was over the moon Brian when I saw the starting line-up with Luiz alongside Lamps. Thought it worked brilliantly and Jose must have seen that too.


He may have the odd lapse, like Mikel but he can play the killer pass, head a ball, cover more ground, in fact just be so much better in just about every department.


Well played David - enjoy your short break in Portugal!
