In 1974 my timer went to watch the World Cup and till today he talks of Total Football, The Dutch first goal and of course the Oranje army or Dutch Fans. The sea of Orange he says.Always talks about Cruyff and Neeskans,Ruud Krol. Alas as the years have gone by the Dutch have always under achieved when it came to World Cups. They always had the squad,the Big Name Players but the Dutch could never produce.
As we head into 2010 the Dutch find themselvesin a tricky group alongside Cameroon and Denmark. But they have the squad to do well this year and in midfield and attack the Dutch are strong. They have two of the most in form players in Wesley Sjneider and Arjen Robben. Both coming to South Africa in sublime form. Their front line is also powerful and they have the names. Weak links probably lie in defence. They miss that De Boer,Stam or Koeman type of a player.
But certainly the stars to watch are Robben and Sneijder

Throw some names around, Sneijder ,Robben,Van Der Vaart,Kuyt,van Persie,Babbel,Van Bommel.....The Dutch are strong this year

The sea of Orange is spectecular and its been said that teh Dutch Fans are awesome. I cant wait to be part of this in South Africa and the Dutch Fans are one of the reasons why I am happy the Dutch are in South Africa.Wherever they are there will be an Orange blanket

One of the reasons why I like the Dutch Fans


So the Big Question. How will the Dutch Fair in South Africa. Do they have what it takes or will they under achieve in South Africa
