Johan Cruyff

Am surprised there is no thread about him here yet.

RIP, Cruyff. What you meant to the Netherlands (and not just for football) might be difficult for others to understand.

You were SO much more than just your football.

And considering what a colossus you were for football, that says a lot.

RIP indeed.

It is only recently I've learnt a bit about how great the mark he left on modern football was, as seen in the youth system at Barcelona and the way they have been playing their football. Some people have been saying he's had arguably the greatest impact on football of anybody, so massive respect to him.
