Netherlands won Euro 88 (with Marco van Basten, Ruud Gullit, Frank Rijkaard) and reached two consecutive world cup finals in 1974 and but lost both finals to their respective host nations, West Germany and Argentina. At the peak of its success in the 1970s, the team was famous for its mastery of Total Football, pioneered by Ajax and led by playmaker Johan Crijiff and national team coach Rinus Michels.

The colors of the Dutch flag are red, white and blue. There's no orange at all. So why all the dutch fans wearing orange?

The answer: Orange is the color of the Dutch Royal Family. The lineage of the current dynasty the House of Oranje-Nassau -- dates back to Willem van Oranje (William of Orange). But while the color orange has royal roots in the Netherlands, today it symbolizes a broader pride in the country and in being Dutch.

I will be supporting the Dutch after the Japanese in South Africa '10. But please no wrestle mania on the football pitch this time (re: against Portugal in '06).

Its very ironical that 2 previous generations of Dutch football who were much better than the present squad failed to reach the final game of a world cup.....i.e. the Gullit/Van Basten and Bergamp/Overmars generations

Hahaha lol. Well I mean when you pick teams like Netherlands as your second team well obviously :P

My second team is much much weaker than your top 2 :)

But the final was crap. Spain made me sleepy. They pass the ball but they have no speed. Its like watching 50 year olds kicking a ball around who are too old to run.

spain plays a very slow tempo. thats why they find it tough to break defenses. when they do all those passing opponents always gets time to bring as many players behind the ball. from what i have seen this time and prefiusly in qulifiers except ramos, navas, and fully fit fabregas and torres no body wants to play quick moving football.

Yeah and its very boring :P

Boring? No sir, not at all. On the contrary, Spain plays the most creative brand of football among European nations and have possibly played the most attacking of all teams in this year's World Cup. Their game is primarily possession-based and this has been their weakness as well as their strength in this competition. They barely lose possession of the ball, playing on the ground as opposed to sending long balls down the pitch, so much so that their strikers, full of talent and individual ball-play skills, often take too long to shoot, which has often translated to poor finishing in this tournament.

But if anything, this group has been playing clean, fair and magical futbol for a good few years now. What they need is a set-piece hero who can curve it in from free-kicks and find players with pin-point accuracy from corners. Wish Forlan was born in Spain. Not too worried about the finishing as, with Torres being out of form, this goal-drought might just have been a temporary thing.

Boring is what Italy, France and Germany pre-2006 are guilty of.

I won't call the 98 france team boring. in fact any team with the spark of zidane cannot be boring, by very definition. :) problem with spain is ball possession at the expense of speed and passing, where germany were absolutely out of this world.

italy, always hated their style. greece was even worse in 2004.

CricFanBD
July 15, 2010, 05:22 PM
Yes Sir. In my point of view, It is 100% boring, kind of useless game where all the midfielders are passing the ball all around the midfield except the penalty box area or even if the ball goes into the penalty box area, two or three player comes up again with the passing game rather than shoot the ball to the goal post…it seems like to make a goal is the least priority for the Spanish team…after the game against Germany, one Spanish player also said that they were not worried at all for not getting the goal (until 73 mins)…they just wanted to play their game…and what kind of game it is? Football is the game where we expected a goal always and it gives the verdict of the game not passing. In the Germany vs Argentina match, ball possession for Argentina is 53%, but Germany did 4 goals…and I think nobody on the earth thinks that Argentina Play better (if you think I don’t mind). Everybody knows that Spain is the first team in the world cup history who scored the least amount of goals (just 8) in the 7 match…yeah very much entertaining!!

Just want to share something (please don’t hate me):

I followed the Football World Cup since 1990, I watched all the matches from second round. First time this thing happened…I slept several times at sitting position while I was watching a 2 World Cup Matches, one is Spain vs Portugal and another is Spain vs Germany.

I believe Spain play better than any one else and they deserve the World Cup this time…I have no doubt at all…but if you want to talk about their game style…yeah it is boring.
