The Netherlands has been one of the world's most distinctive and sophisticated football cultures. From the birth of Total Football in the sixties, through two decades of World Cup near misses to the exiles who remade clubs like AC Milan, Barcelona, Arsenal and Chelsea in their own image, the Dutch have often been dazzlingly original and influential. The elements of their style (exquisite skills, adventurous attacking tactics, a unique blend of individual creativity and teamwork, weird patterns of self-destruction) reflect and embody the country's culture and history. This book lays bare the elegant, fractured soul of the Dutch Masters and the culture that spawned them by exploring and analysing its key ideas, institutions, personalities and history in the context of wider Dutch society.

Brilliant range is a book about Dutch soccer that's not really about Dutch socer. It's more about an enigmatic way of thinking peculiar to a people whose landscape is unrelentingly flat, mostly below sea level, ad who owe their salvation to a boy who plugged a fractured dike with his little inger. If any one thing, Brilliant Orange is about Dutch space and a people whose unique conception of it has led to ome of the most enduring art, the weirdest architecture, and a bizarrely crebral form of soccer--Total Football--that led in 1974 to a World Cup finalsmatch with arch-rival Germany and more recently to a devastating loss againstSpain in 2010. With its intricacy and oddity, it continues to mystify and delght observers around the world. As David Winner wryly observes, it is an expression of the Dutch psyche that has a shaed ancestry with the Mondrian's Broadway Boogie Woogie, Rembrandt's Th Night Watch, maybe even with Gouda cheese. Finally here in paperbck, Brilliant Orange reaches out to the reader from an unexpected place andnever lets go.

»Ich stehe für eine Ära, in der bewiesen wurde, dass Fußball gleichzeitig attraktiv und erfolgreich sein kann«, sagt Johan Cruyff im Rückblick auf die 1970er Jahre. Wie kein anderer steht Cruyff für dynamischen, leidenschaftlichen Angriffsfußball. Als Kapitän der niederländischen Nationalmannschaft, bei Ajax Amsterdam und später beim FC Barcelona hatte er mit dieser Taktik legendäre Erfolge erzielt. Der magische Spieler mit der Rückennummer 14 ist der Begründer der Fußball-Philosophie, die in den letzten Jahren vor allem von seinem Schüler Pep Guardiola perfektioniert wurde. Nun erzählt Cruyff, der in einem Atemzug mit Superstars wie Pele, Beckenbauer, Maradona und Messi genannt wird, von den ruhmreichen Stationen seiner Karriere als Spieler und Trainer. Mein Spiel ist eines der erhellendsten und klügsten Bücher, das in den letzten Jahrzehnten über den Fußball geschrieben wurde.

 Ajax, the archetypal Greek warrior, has over the years been trivialized as a peripheral character in the classics through Hollywood representations, and by the use of his name on household cleaning products. Examining a broad range of sources—from film, art and literature to advertising and sports—this study of the “Bulwark of the Achaeans” and his mythological image redefines his presence in Western culture, revealing him as the predominant voice in The Iliad and in myriad works across the classical canon.

A Youth Soccer Coach's Investigation Into The Origins of Soccermainia On July 10, 1999, 100,000 Americans, mostly women, did something they had not done before, at least not in such numbers. They showed up to watch a soccer match. Their attendance at the 1999 Women's World Cup Final took the world by surprise, forcing it to recognize much about itself that it had been in denial of for quite some time. Who were these soccer fans? Where had they come from? Why had no one noticed them before? Award winning journalist Jim Haner asks these questions, and others, as he sets off in search of the origins of the American passion for soccer, uncovering the game's roots in an early industrial Northeast and following them up through the transcontinental suburban present. But Haner is by no means a passive historian of the game; he is the coach of the Hornets, a rag-tag team of ten nine-year-old boys and one determined little girl. Haner provides us with an intimate view of his team's struggles and successes over the course of season, and of his own transformation from reluctant soccer dad to authentic 'soccerhead'. Seamlessly weaving personal and historical narrative threads, Soccerhead is both an enticing memoir and a cultural inquiry of the first-order--enlightening, entertaining, and informative--shedding new light on a little known chapter of American history.

Die exklusive Biografie des neuen Trainers vom FC Bayern München Pep Guardiola – ein Name, der Anfang 2013 Medien und Fußballfans in Deutschland elektrisierte, als das kaum zu Glaubende tatsächlich feststand: Der spanische Star-Coach trainiert künftig den FC Bayern München. Weit lukrativere Jobangebote hatten ihn weniger beeindruckt als eine überzeugende Vereinsphilosophie und ein unbedingter Erfolgswille, wie er sie beim deutschen Rekordmeister vorfand. Seine jahrelange Arbeit beim FC Barcelona, erst als Spieler, dann als Trainer, war eine Erfolgsgeschichte der Superlative: 2009 – nach einigen titellosen Jahren – erreichte der FC Barcelona das bisher nie dagewesene Sextuple, d.h., er gewann alle bedeutenden nationalen und internationalen Titel, die ein Verein in einem Jahr gewinnen kann: nationale Meisterschaft, Pokal, Champions League, den spanischen wie den UEFA-Supercup sowie die FIFA-Club-Weltmeisterschaft. Guillem Balague, der Pep Guardiola wie kaum ein anderer kennt, zeichnet das Bild eines Fußball-Workaholics, aber auch eines bescheiden gebliebenen Romantikers des Fußballs, der seit seiner Kindheit hart daran arbeitet, auf dem Spielfeld und im Leben Kraft, Erfolg und Schönheit in ein ideales Gleichgewicht zu bringen.
