Default Netherlands (Total Football) thread for FIFA WC 2010

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.
