Is this the after-effects of the loss that was inflicted to them by Bafana Bafana? Your guess is as good as mine, final whistle will will be the decider.

Example of what we call going with tested and trusted one, Spain coach wanted to be loyal to his old horses. Which is much understandable because people always like to say if it is not broken don't fix it and now since it is broken handy will come in

Johan Cruyff's tiki taka has been exposed by Rinus Michel's TOTAL FOOTBALL..

For those who don't know TOTAL FOOTBALL.. In simple terms.. It's a philosophy of using any outfield player to play in any position on the field.. Developed by the Netherlands during the 1974 World Cup..

Rinus Michel.. You deserve a bells!

In Total Football, a player who moves out of his position is replaced by another from his team, thus retaining the team's intended organisational structure. In this fluid system, no outfield player is fixed in a nominal role; anyone can successively play an attacker, a midfielder and a defender. The only player fixed in a nominal position is the goalkeeper.

Total Football's tactical success depends largely on the adaptability of each footballer within the team, in particular the ability to quickly switch positions depending on the on-field situation. The theory requires players to be comfortable in multiple positions; hence, it places high technical and physical demands on them.

Sometime been a coach is a kak job had he dropped half of the guys who won it in 2010 and lose like this most of people will be saying y did you leave them behind when they have won it for you in 2010. So as for me I think it's a good thing he did and good thing they have lost now new generation can come in with no pressure
