5.0 étoiles sur 5 A feast for "Total Football" lovers 19 septembre 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I will tell you right off that I've been waiting for this book for 26 years. I, like the author, fell for the "total football" of Ajax Amsterdam (a Dutch soccer club which won three consecutive European Cups-'71,'72,'73) and the Dutch national soccer team, which impressed the world during the 1974 and 1978 World Cups. Being an American, I was starved for information about this generation of players who brought a revolution in tactical thinking to world soccer. I'm sure a lot was written about them at the time (some still is), but most of it was not in English or not easily availble in the States. I was convinced at the time that the progressive thinking of these teams must be, in some part, a function of the Dutch mentality. This book is an attempt to show that connection. The chapters essentially alternate between factual information and interviews with some former players and coaches and factual information and interviews with people unrelated to soccer but involved in other creative areas, i.e. architecture, art, etc. The book is not all about the positive side, either. The Dutch national soccer team has had a history of self-destructing at important tournaments and this too is linked with certain aspects of Dutch thinking.
The book also covers some of the more recent vintages of Ajax and the Dutch national team in the same way. This shows not only a continuity of cultural thought, but also helps to deal with situations that occurred after the early '70's, such as the influx of other ethnicities into the soccer teams, and the accompanying problems this brought.
"Brilliant Orange" is essential reading for all those who love Dutch soccer. But it will also be entertaining and insightful for anyone interested in the way cultural thought manifests itself in specific areas of life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Priceless insights into the Dutch and their soccer 6 mars 2001
Par Mr. Stuart Robert Harris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Pele famously called soccer "the beautiful game" and at last here is a book that does justice to that thought. It charts the Dutch soccer renaissance that flowered from the late 60s, how Dutch culture shaped it and the way that historical events in soccer have themselves influenced Dutch culture and recent history. It's a touching, intelligent and insightful masterpiece.
Just as the Beatles and the Swinging 60s marked a turning point in Britain, so the new spirit in soccer marked a cultural watershed in the Netherlands. A key figure of those heady days was the prodigiously gifted and outspoken Johann Cruyff, cited by the author as probably the most important and best-known Dutch person alive. Here was a player of such intelligence and physical skill that even ballet superstar Rudolph Nureyev watched him in fascination.
David Winner has doggedly researched his subject, meeting and interviewing many of the key figures. They speak with a distinctive voice and overall the writing evokes a strong sense of place, people and events - not least the (self) defeat of the Dutch in the 1974 World Cup final against Germany. "How come you understand our country so well?" a Dutchman asked me after I shared some of the book's insights with him.
This is an outstanding read for anyone interested in soccer, anyone who has Dutch friends or has ever been to the Netherlands or ever intends to go there. Not to mention anyone who is interested in the importance of sport in the life of societies and nations.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not just for football fans 28 décembre 2000
Par keithjohnson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This is not just a book for football (soccer) fanatics, although it helps. As Mr. Winner explains, it's his attempt to get to the bottom of Dutch football, albeit in a multidisciplinary sort of way. The creation of space on offense and the destruction of space on defense both have historical and geographical roots; likewise, the Dutch refusal to win the big one can be traced to socio-cultural factors. You can read it again and again -- the beauty of its organization (squad numbers, not chapters) makes it ideal for idle flipping, for lunch-time readings, for chapter-hopping and quick dips. A sheer joy -- you learn a lot, you'll press it on friends, you'd lend it out more if it weren't so good.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 the simplist pass is the hardest to make 24 juillet 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
this was the best book i have read about soccer. the only books i can usually find about soccer have to do with coaching and drills. if you are interested in soccer beyond this level, this is the book for you. i have always compared playing soccer to "playing" life. and this book connects the too. but in a brilliant dutch way.
as a young soccer coach, this book gave me ideas about how to teach my players and make them understand the beauty of soccer.
i have travelled to the netherlands and even have a dutch girlfriend. this book explains there behavior just the way they explain it to the rest of the world. and when i am there i can see how they value space and take advantage of all that they have in an organized and effecient manner. this is then translated to the soccer field in a totalfootball explosion.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Like a Cruyff feint--brilliance! 11 juin 2003
Par Brian Maitland - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Not only does this book take you in to the mind of Dutch soccer geniuses like Cruyff, Michels, etc. it gets into the mindset of the Dutch themselves. I also loved the stuff on the 1978 World Cup Dutch team which is probably my fave, even more than 1974., for making it to the Final without Cruyff, Krol and other top stars who boycotted the tourny.
For anyone who wants to understand what makes the Dutch tick on and off the soccer field.
