A must read for any football fan, 2 Aug 2002
Just try to think of all the questions you might ask about Dutch football from its origins to its lack of competitive strenght in crucial matches. Brilliant Orange has the answers. Based on interviews and on his own life experience in the country, David Winner present the readers with a masterpiece that goes far beyond the mere "how Cruyff was fantastic thing" and suggest that the famous total football theory is a consequence of a cross over between arts, philosohy and sports. The book makes you clap you hands harder for the Dutchmen's legacy.
