Welcome To The Return of Total Football?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Break out the jong jenever
Orangebloom the sky
Whilst the Dutch preach total football
Azzuri call for a Ruud offside.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Who cares if Christian Panucci left the pitch
As he sure did yesterday
As Danny Blanchflower used to preach
Anyone that’s ON the field, interferes with play!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Johann will have to button his lip
As Van Basten’s team excel
On the field of play where it really counts
T’was a totally Orange world!

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 A wonderful display of the beautiful game
Saw the total demise of the Italians
A team filled with old un’s from halcyon days
Never looked like World Cup champions.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Will the Dutch progess
And pass the test
As champions of Europe?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Between me and you
I hope they do
What a great total football advert!



Whatever style of play wins the big international football competitions, is usually copied in domestic leagues the following season.

So with that in mind I hope the Dutch team go on and have a blinding tournament with their carefree total football ethic, so that next year our game might, just might be all the more exciting to watch for me as a punter.

All interviews with the Dutch boys afterwards, were very diplomatic with regards to Johann’s outburst in the press. How do you slaughter a national hero who’s having a dig at yer team?

Out on the pitch, with your game plan is how, no words are then needed, are they Marco….me son?
