Stop the press!!!

Fernando Torres smiles, looks happy, even laughing at one point. I like this picture because of the look of sheer joy on the
face of the Chelsea striker.

This picture was taken during Chelsea's win in the semi
final of the FIFA Club World Cup in Japan

Torres scored at the start of the second half against
Monterrey and clearly looks happy about his form returning.

Chelsea don't have long to wait now until they start their bid for Club World Cup glory against Monterrey.

The Blues have been in Japan for a few days now ahead of Thursday's semi-final clash with the Mexicans.

Chelsea striker Fernando Torres not impressed by scoring against Nordsjaelland – Picture of the week by Graham Chadwick

My latest picture of the week was taken during Chelsea's 6-1 victory over Nordsjaelland at Stamford Bridge on December 5.

The look on the face of Fernando Torres sums up the mood at Chelsea at the moment.

European Cup holders – yet on their way out in the first stage of this season's competition.

Torres ended his goal drought by scoring twice against Nordsjaelland last Wednesday.

But the Spaniard doesn't appear to be too enthralled by his efforts.

David Luiz: I have bright future at Chelsea

I'll silence critics! Chelsea's Luiz confident he can convince doubters of bright future at Stamford Bridge

UPDATED:

23:10 GMT, 11 December 2012

David Luiz has emerged from the storm with his spirit unbroken and his hair unruffled, at least no more unruly than before, and he feels ready to embark on the next stage of his Chelsea career.

Luiz put his hand up when doubts were raised as to whether anyone in this squad had the strength of character required to lead the team beyond the era of John Terry, Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba and Petr Cech.

He went some way to proving this when he stepped forward to take a Champions League penalty against Nordsjaelland last week and again with his determination to confront his critics.

'No one likes criticism,' said the
25-year-old Brazilian. 'It gets to you and you don’t like it and you
ask, “Why are they saying this I tried my best, why can’t they see I’m
trying” It’s natural to think like that.

'You can have moments where you’re
down but you can’t let them last. They have to pass. I can be sad for
one or two hours but the rest of the day I need to be happy because the
team needs me to be positive. My brain needs it. I need it.

'It does get to me. I am not always
happy when I see the criticism, and I do care because this is my job.
But I’m a positive person. In the end, I know all the difficulties in
your life you can change. You can do something about them. When you
experience difficult moments, I know I’m strong enough to change things
and move on.'

Luiz, once dismissed by Gary Neville
on Sky TV as a PlayStation defender controlled by a 10-year-old, found
his style targeted again when Chelsea started to struggle under Roberto
Di Matteo earlier this season.

He may be quick and technically superb
but can appear erratic, takes risks and sometimes makes mistakes, but
this is his game. It does not mean he doesn’t care.

‘When the criticism came two or three
months ago, it wasn’t a problem,’ said Luiz. ‘In my head, I knew I was
working hard and I could lay my head down on my pillow at night knowing
I’m an honest guy, trying my best.

‘This is a big club. Every little
mistake is highlighted. At a big club you need to be strong. If you
can’t take that, stay at home and work at another job.

‘I was captain at Benfica at 21. I
know my personality is to be a natural leader. So I know now that, at
this moment, with the team’s leaders of many, many years out of the
team, I need to take responsibility of the team and try and help the
young players.

‘Eden Hazard is a great talent and an
amazing player but someone who needs support. He has only just arrived
in the Premier League, like Oscar and other players.

‘Some are more shy, like Ramires. So I
need to take that responsibility. I don’t have a problem with that in
bad moments. I always say my shoulders are broad and I can take that
extra responsibility. I love it. I want it.

‘I prefer to take it on myself to help
the other guys, who can go and play with their heads clear and calm. I
can play with this added responsibility. I enjoy it.’

Luiz was released by Sao Paulo at the
age of 14 and left his family home, moving to the Brazilian city of
Salvador where he picked up his career at Vitoria, breaking into the
lower league team and moving to Europe to sign for Benfica at 19.

His big hair and casual style on the
ball make it easy to overlook the grit he has displayed to clinch his
23million move to the Barclays Premier League in January 2011.

In Rafa Benitez, Luiz now has a coach
who is keen to devote time and attention to the way Chelsea defend. It
could be the making of Luiz.

‘If the results don’t come now, they
will come in the future,’ said Luiz. ‘In the last four games I’ve played
really well, at the top level and with confidence. I need to continue
this work and mentality.

‘Every day work, work, work, this is
the key to football because if you don’t, other guys work more than you
do and they kill you.’

Luiz grew up supporting Corinthians,
the team he could face in the FIFA Club World Cup. It is a tournament
which has always been important in Brazilian football.

‘When I was young I always talked
about this competition, dreaming that one day I would get the chance to
play in it, in the final. Now I have that opportunity.

‘We want to win it as well. It’s a title Chelsea have never won and it would be good for us for the rest of the season.’

JOHN BOSTOCK INTERVIEW

Chased by the world at 15, former Spurs starlet Bostock is now on loan at Swindon but insists… I can still reach for the stars

This week Sportsmail sat down with John Bostock, once the world's most sought-after teenage footballer, and photographer Graham Chadwick went along to capture the 20-year-old as he is now.

The midfielder is currently rebuilding his career at Swindon, on loan from Tottenham, and in our exclusive interview talks of his hunger and desire to put a tricky few years behind him.

Our snapper was there then Bostock was breaking through, capturing him at his school and in his home. Now, four years on we're back and Graham has captured the behind the scenes footage of the shoot.

VIDEO: Insiders view. See how Graham captures Bostock's powerful portrait…

This week's picture works for me, even though England lost the Test against Australia 14-20 at Twickenham on Saturday.

Manu Tuilagi looks determined to do the best he can to limit the points deficit: with at least five Australian players he still manages to stay on his feet.

MK Dons were unable to make the most of their dominance as their FA Cup tie at Cambridge City finished goalless.

Stephen Gleeson headed against the post from Adam Chicksen's cross before the frame of the goal came to the hosts' rescue again with seven minutes left as Luke Chadwick's terrific strike crashed back of the upright.

UPDATED:

14:56 GMT, 17 October 2012

This week's picture was taken from Tuesday night's World Cup 2014 qualifier between England V Poland. Or rather, the game that never was!

After a day of torrential rain in Warsaw, the fans were in place and the teams were due to warm up at the national Stadium.

But barely a few minutes watching the goalkeepers going through their pre-match routine, it became pretty clear that the pitch was unplayable.

You can see from this picture just how much sitting water was around the goal mouth. Why didn't they close the roof sooner
