Jesus Christ I saw many impressive JC compilations in my life, but never such a good one as these 9 minutes and 32 seconds. :biggthumpup.gif:

What a great JC compilation. He was truly one of the greats of the game and while players such as Christiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi may have scored more goals they did not have Cruyff's field presence.
Appie Nouri will forever be remembered for his grace and humanity on and off the pitch!

Officially confirmed it is now the Johan Cruijff Arena. About time although the media here in Uk have called it the JC Arena all season.

I wonder if Feyenoord will follow suit and rename de Kuip, The Wim van Hanegem stadium

Who of you speaks Spanish?
You can put YouTube also on English subtitles, right?

Just to give the English speaking Ajax community a quick update on JC: a new biography has been released, written by Auke Kok. I think he is a great author and has written many biographies which were all well received.

From the start he didn't have the cooperation of the Cruyff Foundation, which is (in my opinion) a good thing because the Cruyff Foundation demands to see only the positive of JC, not the flaws. And JC had some flaws. It becomes clear that Cruijff liked the ladies and cheated on his wife. His wife in turn, fell in love with a shady investor that nearly bankrupted Cruijff when he decided to invest in a pig farm. Not necessarily a flaw, but surprising to read: JC was nervous as hell before each game and suffered from headaches all the time, but when the whistle blew he excelled. Overall, it's a great read.

There is also a controversy around the book, because the author states that Cruijff received 1 million EUR annually from the Cruyff Foundation, which is a bit funny since the foundation is supposed to give the money to charity. The foundation sued him just prior to release of the book and the judge ordered that the book needed to be amended, because basically the foundation did not have the chance to defend these allegations. The author said he had 4 independent sources to back-up his claim, but because the foundation was not consulted, he had to withdraw the statement. Doesn't mean it's not true though....

Also the author has confirmed in the court case that the exact statement (payment done by the foundation) is unlikely and that his sources probably have referred to income out of other sources
