can someone tell me what the definition of "total football" is that was used to describe the dutch teams back in the day??
you are right.Andy Christ said:I think the point behind total football philosophy was that every outfield player must be able to both attack and defend and be able to switch on any position if necessary. So, basically, the idea was to have 10 outfield players with very similar technical and physical skills, playing without a clear formation what opponent could adjust to.
At least that's the description i've heard about it. I don't know how well they actually managed to put it into reality.
