    @MMAenthusiastUHHE: “Thank God for´╗┐ the Cruyff turn, I use it all the time! lol:”

    I use it when I accidentally trip up. Then my recovery and re-direction are so spectacular that onlookers gasp in appreciation and forget the stumble.

    Never forget PUSKAS and his magic magyars… They were the originators of the “socialist” TOTAL football.. If it was not for the jolt that he gave to the british we would be still seeing a lot of teams playing wih 5 forwards and ZERO tactics… thats why i consider Cryuff’s contributions to football as a manager greater than as a player… total football is BEAUTIFUL football

    @Rammsteinn8Italia he even did it as a player, coach and finally managed to get the 2006 world cup to germany… kaiser franz !

    @shadesparty In that case, you are not informed well. Ajax and the national Dutch team played fantastic football because of Cruijff. He influenced everybody on the field.

    @Roeboe i’m not trying to start some sort of argument but beckenbauer did shut cruyff down in the ’74 world cup final. i think cruyff was a better player but beckenbauer was certainly not his “biatch”

    @hiphopuk123 I agree, and George Best was on my list. Unfortunately he got distracted in the ’60s, by beautiful women and booze, but even so he was still one of the greatest ever. I have heard it said that if George Best had been born ugly, and a few years later, we would not be talking about Pele and Maradona as the greatest ever, but George Best.

    @OGLOCify Ha ha yes. Or as the immortal Martin Tyler said in his commentary in the Euro ’88 final, after Van Basten scored that wonder goal… ‘Oh my word, how can you stop Marco Van Basten’

    Brilliantly insightful comment, a magnificent summing up of Holland’s overall contribution to world football in the early seventies. They may have failed at silverware level, but their brilliance will live forever in the collective memory of football purists.

    The man made magic happen on the pitch though, there’s no denying that.
