AKAIK, racisim was a huge problem that affected Holland's performance, especialy in WC 1990;
We've had all sort of incidents but I don't recall a racism problem. We had the "kabel-issue" in 96 but that was a problem between groups. One of which consisted of dark players (de kabel), but it nothing to do with racism. Could've been between young players and old players just the same.
In 1990 we had the problem with the coach. The players wanted Cruijff but they got Beenhakker. I don't see how that had anything to do with racism.
In 1992 there were no problems afaik
. Except that our most experienced penalty taker missed the decisive penalty in the semi's.
In 1994 we had the problem with Gullit leaving the team just before they went to the US.
In 1996 we had the problem with the coach putting his head in other player's asses (and being eliminated by penalties in the quarter's).
In 1998 we didn't have any problems, except for being eliminated by penalties again in the semi's.
In 2000 we missed about a dozen penalties in the semi's again. And of course the criticism about Rijkaard being an too inexperienced coach.
In 2002 we forgot to qualify for the wc.
In 2004 we had a coach who subbed his best player.
In 2006 we had some problems between van Basten and van Nistelrooy and again the criticism of van Basten being too inexperienced.
In 2008 we had the problems before the tournament with van Bommel and Seedorf refusing to play for van Basten. But we forgot all about that after the first match...
