As I've read so many posts on Fernando Torres and Mark Clattenburg recently, I've realized that there has been an almost criminal silence on David Luiz of late. And, after searching the vaults of WAGNH, I've discovered there has only been one Dostoyevsky reference from a commenter.
Very rarely do the worlds of Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Chelsea F.C. intersect, but I would argue that David Luiz is that intersection. Consider Dostoyevsky's novel The Idiot, in which he sought to create a character, Lev Myshkin, "entirely positive... with an absolutely beautiful nature." Does this sound like a certain mop-headed Brazilian to anyone else? Furthermore, Dostoyevsky wanted to experiment with the idea of what it would look like to have a truly good, kind person dropped in the middle of Russian society. When this happens in the novel, everyone takes Lev to be, at best, terribly naive and, at worst, an idiot.
Now consider David Luiz: certainly entirely positive and possessing a beautiful nature (and technical skill). And what happens when the truly good, kind David Luiz is dropped in the middle of English Premier League? He is considered, at best, terribly naive, and, at worst, controlled by a 10 year old on his PlayStation.
Next, consider Wikipedia's plot description of The Idiot:
Prince Lev Nikolayevich Myshkin [David Luiz] returns to Russia [arrives in England] after spending several years at a Swiss sanatorium [Benfica]. Scorned by the society of St. Petersburg [pundits] for his trusting nature and naivety [and no-look passes], he finds himself at the center of a struggle between a beautiful kept woman [the beautiful game] and a virtuous and pretty young girl [being a centre-back], both of whom win his affection. Unfortunately, Myshkin's [David Luiz's] very goodness precipitates disaster, leaving the impression that, in a world obsessed with money, power, and sexual conquest, a sanatorium may be the only place for a saint.
