Great pictures. He never seemed to get older, did he?

He was always that agile and slim guy.

RIP Johan.

Thanks for all the pictures .My paper's headline God's gift to football just about sums up this genius.

On a dark note ,I wonder how the board feel having said we dont want you back in the autumn!!!

I have read the mayor of Amsterdam wants the Arena named after him and its also been said De Toekomst should be named after him. Barca fans want the Nou Camp renamed.

I will post a review of all Dutch youths ints next week but must mention what happened yesterday. Dutch U19's beat Ukraine 3-2 and both Nouri and v d Beek scored .They had agreed if either scored both would raise their hands to signal 14 ,this they did both times. Afterwards both praised the great man and what he meant to them.

These 2 boys are real Ajax kids and yesterday was pure class from them .

Nice to see that kind of gestures to honor the great man. Also in last nights game Holland vs. France in the Arena, there was a pause in the 14th minute to play tribute to the legend.

Nice pictures ,lovely tribute from NY. Barca fans want Nou Camp renamed .

Not sure even when Pele goes will the world react as much as they are doing. As I have said ,we can debate whether he was the greatest footballer ever but no debate about his influence.No one has influenced the game more.

I am reading ,via Google translate many tributes . Clearly even Feyenoord fans regarding him highly ,well he did finish his career there.

What are you talking about, zeux? There was no official Yankee game in Yankee Stadium last Saturday, but there was a sport event and a tribute to Johan Cruijff.

Pure class how the FA has reprinted almost 100.000 match programs for the game on Wembley tomorrow night, Google Translate will for sure provide you information about the tribute tomorrow night in London:
Ook op Wembley groots eerbetoon aan Cruijff

De Engelse voetbalbond (FA) wil Johan Cruijff dinsdag tijdens het oefenduel Nederland-Engeland een passend afscheid geven.

Bij de opkomst van de spelers worden grote afbeeldingen van Cruijff getoond en in de veertiende minuut gebeurt dat opnieuw. Het duel wordt niet stilgelegd, maar de FA verwacht dat de supporters - met 80.000 toeschouwers is het stadion uitverkocht - minutenlang een staande ovatie zullen geven.

De FA tast diep in de buidel voor het afscheid. Zo heeft de voetbalbond honderdduizend programmaboekjes opnieuw laten drukken. In de eerste versie stond een interview met Ronald Koeman over de toen nog levende Cruijff. In de editie die nu klaarligt, staat een aangepast interview met de trainer van Southampton.

Grote successen op Wembley
Wembley is het stadion waar Cruijff als speler in 1971 zijn eerste Europa Cup I won tegen Panathinaikos (2-0). In 1992, als trainer van FC Barcelona, won hij de Cup met de Grote Oren in hetzelfde stadion. In de finale werd Sampdoria door een doelpunt van Ronald Koeman met 1-0 verslagen.

NYCFC does play their home games at the Yankee stadium and there definitely was a game this past Saturday at 3pm.

Yes, it seems that it is possible - my mistake -, I thought the people in the top and lower picture where in exactly the same spot, which isn't the case.

My problem: why can't I find a second source next to wtfck.nl? You would say there would have been reported, tweeted or whatever about it. But I can't find anything on the net (which doesn't say it isn't there. :-) ). I tend to like multiple sources for this kind of stories. :ajaxsmiley.gif:

And New York City FC indeed played this weekend in Yankee Stadium against New England Revolution.

So it can be possible.

Currently about 5000 fans and several ex players are marching from near the old de Meer past JC 's childhood home , only 2 or 3 streets away, and down to the Arena. Ajaxshowtime shows pictures ,lovely gesture. Fans actually saying they are marching to the Johan Cruijff stadium.

52 years today the great man made his debut a 3-1 defeat to GVAV but he scored.

Anyone watching him that day could not have dreamt of what would happen to Ajax.

So its almost certainly going to be called the Johan Cruijff Stadium . Quite correct too. Also there should be a statue of him too .

The Cruijff family demands that the name of the Johan Cruyff Stadium will never be shared with a sponsor name.

That's a very good thing, as giving your stadium a sh*t name like Emirates Stadium, Allianz Arena or Wanda Metropolitano is one of the worst things a club can do.

But as you know money drives all these decisions!!! I think only the Green Bay Packers in American football have not sold naming rights and they named their stadium after a legendary player and manager Curly Lambeau
Appie Nouri will forever be remembered for his grace and humanity on and off the pitch!

Well in football Feyenoord and Ajax, especially our club with Amsterdam Arena do not have such a good stadium name but until now in almost 117 years club history it hasn't been sold to a sponsor.

A year has already gone by without the great man. About time the Arena was named the Johan Cruijff Stadium.

Just read in the news that the Barca b-team arena will be named "Estadi Johan Cruyff". Also there's going to be a statue of Cruyff in Camp Nou and a special wing in the barca museum for Cruyff.

Everyone seems to have missed the 20th anniversary of the death of Carlo Picorni who was involved in a hooligan fight called the battle of Beverwijk. That was interesting, it happened during my first season as an Ajax supporter.

News just got out that this is indeed what will happen! The Amsterdam Arena is going to become the Johan Cruijff Arena somewhere in the next few months.
