RIP Johan Cruijff

so...

Between our different backgrounds, and especially given soccer/football isn't as big in the States as it is in many other countries, we will not all have heard of Johan Cruijff, but he was the greatest footballer my native Netherlands have ever known, and EASILY one of the, say, 5 greatest footballers the world has ever known. He was by far the most important player when The Netherlands reached the World Cup final in 1974, and equally when he got my club, AFC Ajax, 3 successive European Cup victories between 1971 and 1973.

He always remained involved with football and the media, became rather notorious for his incomprehensible jargon.

He died of lung cancer today.

Barcelona is going to fall apart because of this.
