1.During Dutch East Indie (Hindia Belanda)

1.PSSI during DEI and DN Occupation

Old logo of Football Association of Indonesia.

PSSI was established by a civil engineer named Soeratin Sosrosoegondo, who graduated in Germany and came back to Indonesia in 1928. In Indonesia, he worked at a Dutch company in Yogyakarta and became the first Indonesian to work at that company. However, later he resigned from the company and became more active in the revolutionary movement. As a man who loved football, he realised that football could be one of Indonesia’s “weapons” to gather Indonesian men and forced the Dutch colonies to leave Indonesia.

To accomplish his mission, Soeratin held many meetings with Indonesian football professional players at that time, mostly through personal contact since they wanted to avoid the Dutch police. Later, at a meeting that was held in Jakarta with Soeri, the head of Vetbalbond Indonesische Jakarta (VIJ), and other players, they decided to establish a national football organization. On April 19, 1930, almost all non-national organizations, such as Voetbalbond Indonesische Jakarta (Jakarta), Bandoengsche Indonesische Voetbal Bond (Bandung), Persatuan Sepakbola Mataram (Yogyakarta), Madioensche Voetbal Bond (Madiun), Indonesische Voetbal Bond Magelang (Magelang), Soerabajashe Indonesische Voetbal Bond (Surabaya), and Vortenlandsche Voetbal Bond (Solo) gathered at the final meeting and established Persatoean Sepakbola Seloeroeh Indonesia (Football Association of Indonesia or PSSI) with Soeratin as the first leader.

Soeratin

Ir. Soeratin Sosrosoegondo
Ir. Soeratin, the person behind the establishment of PSSI on April 19, 1930, chose to lose a job as an architect who gave abundant revenues to be able to totally take care of PSSI had just stood.
When it Soeratin work in building design bureau named Boukundig Bureau Sitsen en Lausade with salaries approximately one thousand guilders per month. PSSI care activities to make their performance at work to relax. his Office  gives two options: leave the FA or leave a job.
This is not a simple choice. Leaving a job not only makes financial intake Soeratin loss for themselves and their families, but also makes the supply of funds Soeratin lose some of which are used to shore up its operations in PSSI PSSI for itself when it can not be expected to give revenue. Soeratin could just remove the position as Chairman of the PSSI. After all, he can still help PSSI in other ways.
But Soeratin choose the option out of his job. For him, building a large concentration of PSSI need. There are still many issues that must be faced when it PSSI, from insulation made NIVB to build solidarity bond-bond football that bumiputera (sometimes) are still competing with each other. Very pity if ikhtiarnya who pioneered the establishment of struggling in PSSI was left in the middle of the road.
Historical fragments that can be read as an existential moment for human Soeratin above seem so contrasted with the attitude of “diehard” Nurdin Halid to continue to survive in the highest leadership reins PSSI – which oddly enough attitude is supported by no less hard head by the committee and Executive Comitte PSSI PSSI.
Contrast is increasingly felt ridiculous when reading a statement when answering the demands of Nurdin Halid for himself resigned his position as Chairman of the PSSI.
“Or the problem I faced no request for my back and I was in a state didzalimi. Therefore, for the sake of my pride and dignity for the sake of PSSI. God willing, with the blessing of God I will survive lead PSSI,” he said “(Kompas, 21 February 2008).
If Soeratin chose to quit his job to get the total care of PSSI to risk losing an abundant intake of guilders in his day, Nurdin Halid precisely keukeuh to continue to sit in his post even though he was obviously totally unable to lead the organization PSSI. Rather than lead with a total PSSI, Nurdin was more often “troublesome” because it forces the managers PSSI PSSI had to go back and forth to jail, good for coordination meetings or simply to give a report.
In the tradition of Napier, “Sirri” not trivial. He referred to the pride of self, self, self as a man of integrity and men. If until someone mentions “Sirri”, he almost certainly was in great anger, feel the integrity of himself torn going back many, his pride being trampled.
The problem is, suits to Nurdin to withdraw was not a personal issue. The increasingly strong demands that arise as a matter of organization, in this case PSSI, organizations that manage the most populist sport in the country, a stance cultivated with difficulty by its founders.
The statement was laughable because Nurdin Nurdin equate self-esteem and personal dignity with self-esteem and dignity of PSSI, though if the Chairman of personal feeling harassed PSSI PSSI automatically as an organization also abused self-esteem and dignity.
Nurdin may be true that the PSSI had lost self-esteem and dignity, but not because its chairman was abused, but because PSSI was already losing his own integrity because of its failure.
What proud accomplishments under the leadership of PSSI for Nurdin Halid? Bahrain wins opponent but then lost by Saudi Arabia and South Korea in Asian Cup 2007? Failed to qualify for the SEA Games semi-finals of 2007? Lose memalukkan from Syria with an aggregate 11-1 in World Cup play-off 2010?
If Nurdin Halid mertahankan need examples of behavioral self-esteem and dignity of PSSI, consider just how Soeratin with a tough stand to defend self-esteem and dignity in the case of delivery PSSI Dutch East Indies team to the World Cup 1938 in France.
When the Dutch East Indies sent a team of Nederlandsh Indische Voetbal Unie (NIVU, the organ which is the metamorphosis of NIVB) to France. Although nine players on that team from among bumiputera and Chinese, Soeratin mad not to play because he considered NIVU violate “Gentlement Agreemnt” signed PSSI (represented Soeratin) with NIVU (represented Materbreok) on January 5, 1937 which states that the delivery team must be preceded by a match between NIVU with PSSI. Soeratin also want to flag used by the Dutch East Indies team was not the flag NIVU.
Violations of the deal was valued Soeratin as harassment on the dignity of PSSI. That is why Soeratin, on behalf of PSSI, unilaterally cancel all points of agreement between PSSI PSSI with NIVU at Congress 1938 in Solo.
At that congress Soeratin read a speech titled “Spirit Loekisan PSSI: Educating Ra’jat mediated Voetbalsport”, a speech that became the blueprint PSSI vision in the colonial period, a speech that seemed to never be read by Nurdin Halid and the managers of PSSI now.
One of the most famous sentence Soeratin – as told Maladi – reads: “If on a football pitch we can beat the Netherlands, later in the political field too we can beat Holland.”
Nationalism and politics at that time become an inherent part of PSSI. Do not be surprised if, for example, PSSI II championship committee in 1932 that was held in the field Travelli Laan, Batavia, daring Sukarno invited to do honor to kick the ball at the final of the championship which memertemukan Vij (Voetball Indonesia Jcatra) against PSIM Yogyakarta.
Actions that yield subversive because Sukarno was just out of prison in Bandung Sukamiskin its activity as a result of the Indonesian National Party leader.

In PSSI’s earlier years, they mainly used football as a method to resist the Dutch control of the colonies by gathering all the footballers which mostly were men. Later, because PSSI became stronger. In 1936, NIVB was changed to NIVU (Nederlandsh Indische Voetbal Unie) and cooperation with the Dutch began. In 1938, with “Dutch East Indies” as a name, NIVU sent their team to the 1938 World Cup. However, most the players came from NIVU, instead of PSSI, although there were 9 Tionghoa/”pribumi” players. As a result, Soeratin expressed his protest since he wanted a match between NIVU and PSSI before the world cup. In addition, he was also disgraced because the flag that was used at the world cup was the NIVU’s (Dutch)’s flag. Soeratin then cancelled the agreement with NIVU and Muhammad Rizki at the PSSI congress in 1939 in Solo.

When the Japanese armies came to Indonesia, PSSI became inactive because Japan classified PSSI as a Tai Iku Kai’s organization, or a Japanese sport association.

1.a.KweeKiat Sek,Him Tjiang,The San Liong dan

 Tan Liong Ho

SEMANGAT bermain sepak bola tak ikut pupus meski usia kakek warga Tionghoa kelahiran Surabaya, 26 Juli 1930, itu sudah mulai menginjak kepala delapan. Meski tak segesit dan sepiawai dulu ketika muda, dia masih rutin melakoni olahraga yang banyak digemari masyarakat dunia, termasuk Indonesia, itu.

.

Setidaknya, seminggu sekali dia bergelut dengan salah satu permainan body contact tersebut. Lawannya, jangan dikira, rekan-rekan seusianya sesama manula. Selama ini hampir semua partner bermainnya adalah pemain-pemain muda usia 20″30-an tahun. Tentu, secara fisik jauh lebih fresh.

Seperti saat Jawa Pos menemui Tan Liong yang juga populer disebut Latief Harris Tanoto tersebut di Stadion Taman Sari di kawasan Mangga Besar, Jakarta, pada Sabtu sore (30/1). Dengan helm masih terpasang, Tanoto yang baru turun dari motor dengan dibonceng anaknya terlihat bersemangat masuk ke stadion.

Telah tiba silih berganti sebelumnya, belasan pemuda dan beberapa lelaki warga Tionghoa. Mereka berbaur dengan sejumlah orang dari kelompok etnis lainnya. “Ayo Papi, cepat pakai sepatunya, langsung kita main,” teriak salah seorang di antara mereka dari dalam lapangan, menyambut kedatangan kakek yang suka disapa Tan Lion itu.

Sekilas dipandang, mungkin sebagian besar orang tak akan menyangka, masa muda lelaki yang rambutnya sudah memutih itu pernah menjadi pesepak bola terkenal. Sosok yang sangat disegani kawan dan lawan ketika bermain di lapangan bola.

Mantan pemain yang mendapat julukan “Macan Betawi” dari pendukung Persija pada masanya itu datang hanya mengenakan celana pendek dan bersandal japit. Sangat sederhana. Tangan kanannya menenteng tas kresek berisi sepatu bola. “Sejak dulu, saya ya seperti ini. Main di dalam maupun di luar negeri bawanya ya tas kresek kayak begini saja,” kata Tan Liong, sambil mencari posisi duduk di pinggir lapangan.

Sepatu butut yang pasangan sebelah kiri sudah bolong kecil di bagian samping itu lantas dikeluarkan dari tas kresek. Jari tangan yang kulitnya sudah mengeriput masih tampak tetap terampil memasang dan mengencangkan tali sepatu bergigi di bagian bawah khusus untuk sepak bola tersebut. “Saya tinggal lari-lari dulu ya,” kata Tan Liong, sambil beranjak masuk ke lapangan.

Di dalam lapangan, wajah pria yang usianya sudah mencapai 10 windu lebih itu tampak semringah. Meski hanya sesekali mendapat bola, mantan pemain yang dulu biasa bermain di posisi gelandang (pemain tengah) kiri tersebut tetap rajin berlari mengikuti arah bola. Ketika permainan berlangsung, sesekali dia terlihat memberikan arahan kepada pemain lain yang mungkin usianya sepantaran dengan cucunya.

Meski lahir di Surabaya, Tan Liong tumbuh remaja di Jakarta. Bakat dan hobi bermain sepak bolanya juga makin terasah di kota yang dulu sempat dikenal pada masa pra kemerdekaan sebagai Batavia tersebut. Saat berumur sekitar 17 tahun, dia bergabung dengan Chun Hwa, salah satu perkumpulan sepak bola Tionghoa saat itu, yang kini dikenal sebagai PS Tunas Jaya.

Namun, pihak keluarga awalnya tidak memberikan dukungan kepada Tan Liong menekuni sepak bola. Adiknya, Tan Liong Pha, yang bermain untuk Persib Bandung Junior juga terpaksa berhenti karena tidak mendapatkan izin. Sedangkan Tan Liong oleh ibunya, Ong Giok Tjiam, akhirnya dikirim ke Semarang, Jawa Tengah. Selain untuk bersekolah di sana, tentu tujuan keluarganya adalah menjauhkan dia dari aktivitas bola kaki.

Namun, hal itu tidak menghentikan hobinya itu. Dia secara sembunyi-sembunyi justru tetap bermain bola. Bahkan, beberapa kali dia ikut melakukan pertandingan lawatan ke luar kota. Namanya berkibar di kompetisi antarkota sebagai salah seorang pemain berbakat. “Tapi, sepintar-pintarnya saya, akhirnya tetap ketahuan juga,” kisah Tan Liong, lantas terkekeh.

Kegiatannya tetap bermain bola terbongkar setelah dalam sebuah pertandingan dia mengalami cedera cukup parah. Dahinya robek karena berbenturan dengan pemain lawan sehingga harus mendapat perawatan di rumah sakit. “Orang tua langsung suruh saya balik ke Jakarta lagi,” ujarnya.

Namun, garis sebagai pemain bola tak bisa dielak. Sepulang dari Semarang, sang ayah mengizinkan Tan Liong bermain bola. Kegigihan anaknya mengasah bakat sejak kecillah yang menjadi alasannya.
Tak berselang lama, berbarengan dengan momentum seleksi timnas untuk persiapan Asian Games I di New Delhi, India, dia yang saat itu berusia sekitar 20 tahun dipanggil masuk tim nasional. Prestasinya pun semakin bersinar sejak itu.

Berturut-turut pria yang juga akrab dengan sapaan Tanoto itu menjadi langganan timnas. Bersama The San Liong, Kwee Kiat Sek, Bee Ing Hien, dan beberapa pemain Tionghoa lainnya, dia kembali membela Merah Putih pada Asian Games II 1954. Kemudian, itu berlanjut pada prestasi spektakuler dalam ajang Olimpiade Melbourne, Australia, pada 1956. Timnas saat itu berhasil masuk babak perempat final dan menahan imbang tanpa gol negara kuat favorit juara Uni Soviet (sekarang Rusia).

Strategi permainan keras tanpa kompromi sengaja dipilih sejak awal karena sadar bahwa secara kualitas teknik maupun fisik kalah oleh Rusia. “Kalau main strategi biasa, pasti gampang sekali kita dikubur,” katanya. Dia lantas menunjukkan jari manis dan kelingkingnya sebagai perbandingan perbedaan timnas Indonesia dan Uni Soviet yang saat itu merupakan salah satu negara adidaya di dunia.

Karena strategi bermain keras tersebut, Tan Liong sampai merasa perlu memasang pengaman untuk kakinya dua sekaligus. Tidak hanya bagian depan menutup tulang kering, tapi juga bagian belakang. “Mau mati kek, mau apa kek, saya sudah siap saat itu,” tuturnya, penuh semangat.

Namun sayang, karena telah diforsir pada pertandingan pertama, di leg kedua dua hari kemudian untuk penentuan tim mana yang meneruskan ke babak berikutnya, Indonesia harus mengakui keunggulan Uni Soviet. Skor telak 4-0 untuk kemenangan tim lawan. Uni Soviet kemudian terus melaju dan berhasil menjadi juara pada ajang Olimpiade 1956 tersebut.

Namun, jangan membayangkan bahwa perjuangan timnas yang banyak digawangi pemain warga Tionghoa waktu itu mendapat support penuh dari publik Indonesia seperti saat timnas Indonesia berlaga dalam ajang AFF 2010 beberapa waktu lalu.

Sebelum melaju ke babak perempat final bertemu Uni Soviet, Indonesia terlebih dahulu harus menghadapi Republik Rakyat Tiongkok. Keraguan dan tudingan miring pun dialamatkan kepada para pemain timnas warga Tionghoa. Tan Liong dan kawan-kawan sempat dianggap akan bermain setengah hati bila bertemu pemain Tiongkok.

“Ini kalau diomongkan memang nggak enak. Tapi, kenyataannya kayak gitu. Seperti saya, biarpun WNI, tetap ada embel-embel Tionghoa-nya di belakang,” keluh Tan Liong. Meski berhasil menjawab dengan kemenangan, tudingan yang sama ternyata masih dialamatkan saat Indonesia kembali harus melawan Tiongkok dalam pertandingan Pra Piala Dunia 1958.

Namun, untuk kali kedua, Tan Liong dkk kembali bisa menjawab dengan keberhasilan mengalahkan negara dengan penduduk terbesar di dunia tersebut. “Aku nggak ada pikiran kayak begitu-begitu, pokoknya aku dapat tugas main, ya main sebaik-baiknya. Saya Indonesia, lahir di sini, makan di sini, berak di sini, mati juga di sini,” tegas mantan pemain yang juga pernah membela Persija itu.

Perlakuan diskriminatif kepada para pemain warga Tionghoa saat itu, menurut dia, menjadi salah satu alasan surutnya warga Tionghoa dalam dunia sepak bola tanah air hingga saat ini. Termasuk alasan terkuat dirinya mundur dari timnas pada 1962. “Jadi, saya mundur bukan karena tidak laku lagi. Saya masih dipakai waktu itu,” ujarnya.

Padahal, lanjut dia, menjadi pemain timnas sepak bola Indonesia sesungguhnya merupakan impian dan kebanggaan tersendiri bagi bapak empat orang anak itu. Saking berartinya, sampai-sampai, kaus timnas yang dipakainya saat membela Merah Putih tidak pernah dikenakan di luar lapangan. “Saya nggak mau pakai sembarangan. Mentang-mentang menjadi pemain timnas, lalu ke mana-mana pakai kaus yang ada gambar garudanya itu. Kalau saya, enggak,” tutur Tan Liong.

Sejumlah jersey timnas yang dimilikinya selama 12 tahun membela timnas Indonesia tetap disimpan rapi. “Yang namanya pusaka itu cuma dipakai saat berjuang. Ini bentuk penghargaan saya. Sebab, garuda benar-benar ada di sini,” tandasnya, sambil menunjuk dada sebelah kiri.

Bermain sepak bola, baik di klub maupun timnas saat membela Indonesia, juga bukan pertimbangan uang atau materi. Menurut Tan Liong, sekali bermain di Persija dia hanya dibayar segobang atau 2,5 sen. Uang sebesar itu pada zaman tersebut bisa digunakan untuk membeli semangkuk soto betawi yang sekarang harganya sekitar Rp 10 ribu. Sedangkan di timnas, saat Olimpiade, dia hanya mendapat USD 1 dolar sehari. “Jadi, bukan uang pertimbangannya,” tegasnya.

Dua anak Tan Liong, Budi Tanoto dan Wahyu Tanoto, sebenarnya juga sempat mengikuti jejak ayahnya sebagai pemain bola. Keduanya juga pernah masuk timnas dan Persija senior pada era 1980-an. Namun, kiprah keduanya cuma sekilas dan tidak sefenomenal ayahnya.  

1b.Djamiat

Seorang pesepakbola nasional, bernama lengkap Mohammad Djamiat Dalhar. Lahir di Yogyakarta 25 November 1927, dan meninggal 23 Maret 1979. Berasal dari keluarga guru sekolah Muhammadiyah. Ayahnya, Dalhar, adalah pemain sepakbola yang andal di kota kelahirannya, di samping tokoh Muhammadiyah. Dia mulai main
sepakbola ketika kanak-kanak, di alun-alun sekitar masjid Agung Yogyakarta. Setelah melalui masa kanak-kanaknya, bermain dengan kaki ayam, ia bergabung dengan klub HW (Hisbul Wathan) Yogya, dimana ayahnya bermain sebagai kiri dalam. Posisi itu pula yang kemudian ditempati Djamiat, termasuk ketika memperkuat tim PSSI.

Dari menonton penampilan Soedarmadji, salah satu pemain pribumi yang memperkuat Hindia Belanda dalam Piala Dunia 1938, kemudian menirukannya, Djamiat mengembangkan kemampuan dirinya. Kesungguhan itu pula yang membuat drg. Endang Witarsa, lawan mainnya saat pertandingan di Semarang, terkesan saat berjumpa kembali dengan Djamiat di Jakarta. Saat cedera lutut, ia hijrah ke Jakarta untuk melanjutkan sekolah di Sekolah Apoteker Salemba, Jakarta. Endang yang sudah praktek dokter gigi di RS Cipto Mangunkusumo
menawarkannya berobat dengan seorang dokter ahli sekaligus mencarikan donatur untuk mengobati cidera lutut yang sepertinya akan mengakhiri karir sepakbola Djamiat. Operasi itu berhasil dan ia dapat meneruskan
karir sepakbolanya dengan bergabung pada klub UMS yang dilatih Witarsa.

Karier sepak bolanya meningkat ketika pelatih PSSI asal Yogoslavia, Tony Pogacnik, kembali memanggilnya untuk memperkuat tim nasional. Djamiat mesti berjuang keras untuk menjadi pemain nasional. Ia sempat diragukan karena tubuhnya mulai gemuk, dan juga perlu perjuangan ekstra keras untuk menggantikan pemain-pemain yang sudah mapan. Namanya diabadikan sebagai Piala Kerjurnas Sepakbola Di Bawah Umur 17, yang didedikasikan atas peranannya dalam meneari bibit-bibit unggul sepakbola nasional.

1.cRamang

 


Ramang (1928 – Makassar, 26 September 1987) adalah pemain sepak bola Indonesia dari PSM Makassar yang terkenal pada tahun 1950-an. Ia berposisi sebagai penyerang. Dia pernah mengantarkan PSM ke tangga juara pada era Perserikatan serta pernah memperkuat tim nasional sepak bola Indonesia.

Awal karier
Ramang mulai memperkuat PSM Makassar pada tahun 1947, waktu itu masih bernama Makassar Voetbal Bond (MVB). Melalui sebuah klub bernama Persis (Persatuan sepak bola Induk Sulawesi) ia ikut kompetisi PSM. Pada sebuah pertandingan, ia mencetak sebagian besar gol dan membuat klubnya menang 9-0. Sejak itulah ia dilamar bergabung dengan PSM. Ramang memang sudah mulai menendang-nendang buah jeruk, gulungan kain dan bola anyaman rotan dalam permainan sepak raga sejak berusia 10 tahun. Ayahnya, Nyo’lo, ajudan Raja Gowa Djondjong Karaenta Lemamparang, sudah lama dikenal sebagai jagoan sepakraga. Bakat Ramang memang menurun dari sang ayah. Mulanya ia memperkuat Bond Barru, kota kelahirannya, namun menjelang proklamasi 1945, ia membawa keluarganya pindah ke Ujungpandang dan meninggalkan usaha warung kopi yang ia bangun bersama istrinya.

Pekerjaan lain
Sambil melakoni profesinya sebagai pemain sepak bola, Ramang juga menjadi seorang kenek truk dan tukang becak. Namun dalam sebuah wawancara di Majalah Tempo (7/10/1978), Ramang mengatakan bahwa ia terpaksa meninggalkan profesinya sebagai penarik becak karena sibuk bermain bola. Hal itu membuat kondisi keluarganya yang tinggal menumpang di sebuah rumah temannya menjadi sangat memprihatinkan. “Namun apapun yang terjadi, coba kalau isteri saya tidak teguh iman, mungkin sinting,” kata macan bola itu. Ramang memang tak bisa lepas dari lapangan sepak bola. Baginya, meninggalkan lapangan sepak bola sama saja menaruh ikan di daratan. “Hanya bisa menggelepar-gelepar lalu mati,” katanya.
Setahun setelah kemenangan klubnya 9-0 dalam kompetisi PSM, Ramang sudah keliling Indonesia bermain bola. Tapi ketika ia kembali ke Makassar seorang datang melamarnya bekerja sebagai opas di Dinas Pekerjaan Umum (DPU). Gajinya? Tak pernah naik tetap saja Rp 3.500. Untungnya hanya satu: ia masih tetap bisa main bola.

Karier di tim nasional sepak bola Indonesia
Pada tahun 1952 ia menggantikan Sunardi, kakak Suardi Arlan mengikuti latihan di Jakarta. Ini menyeretnya menjadi pemain utama PSSI. Didampingi Suardi Arlan di kanan dan Nursalam di kiri, ia bagai kuda kepang di tengah gelanggang. Permainannya sebagai penyerang tengah sangat mengagumkan. Maka setahun kemudian ia keliling di beberapa negeri asing. Namanya meroket menjadi pemain favorit penonton dan disegani pemain lawan.
Pada lawatannya tahun 1954 ke berbagai negeri Asia (Filipina, Hongkong, Muangthai, Malaysia) PSSI hampir menyapu seluruh kesebelasan yang dijumpai dengan gol menyolok. Dari 25 gol (dan PSSI hanya kemasukan 6 gol) 19 di antaranya lahir dari kaki Ramang.
Berkat prestasi Ramang, Indonesia masuk dalam hitungan kekuatan bola di Asia. Satu demi satu kesebelasan Eropa mencoba kekuatan PSSI. Mulai dari Yugoslavia yang gawangnya dijaga Beara (salah satu kiper terbaik dunia waktu itu), klub Stade de Reims dengan si kaki emas Raymond Kopa, kesebelasan Rusia dengan kiper top dunia Lev Jashin, klub Locomotive dengan penembak maut Bubukin, sampai Grasshopers dengan Roger Vollentein. “Tapi itu bukan prestasi saya saja, melainkan kerjasama dengan kawan-kawan,” ujar Ramang merendah, sembari menyebut nama temannya satu per satu: Maulwi Saelan, Rasjid, Chaeruddin, Ramlan, Sidhi, Tan Liong Houw, Aang Witarsa, Thio Him Tjiang, Danu, Phoa Sian Liong dan Djamiat.

Ramang dikenal sebagai penyerang haus gol. Ramang memang penembak lihai, dari sasaran mana pun, dalam keadaan sesulit bagaimana pun, menendang dari segala posisi sambil berlari kencang. Satu keunggulan yang masih diidamkan oleh setiap pemain bola kita hingga saat ini, terutama tembakan salto. Keahlian itu tampaknya karunia alam untuk pribadi Ramang seorang sebagai bekas pemain sepakraga yang ulung. Gol melalui tendangan salto yang indah dan mengejutkan seringkali dipertunjukkan oleh Ramang. Satu di antaranya saat PSSI mengalahkan RRC dengan 2-0 di Jakarta. Kedua gol itu lahir dari kaki Ramang, satu di antaranya tembakan salto. Itu pertandingan menjelang Kejuaraan Dunia di Swedia, 1958. Pertandingan kedua dilanjutkan di Peking, Indonesia kalah dengan 3-4, sedang yang ketiga di Rangoon (juga melawan RRC) dengan 0-0. Sayang sekali lawan selanjutnya ialah Israel (yang tak punya hubungan diplomatik dengan Indonesia) maka PSSI terpaksa tidak berangkat.
Mendengar kehebatan Ramang di lapangan sepak bola, tak heran jika di tahun 50-an, banyak bayi lelaki yang lahir kemudian diberi nama Ramang oleh orangtuanya.
Jika Ramang ditanya mengenai pertandingan paling berkesan, di sejumlah media, ia menyebut ketika PSSI menahan Uni Soviet 0-0 di Olimpiade Melbourne 1956. “Ketika itu saya hampir mencetak gol. Tapi kaus saya ditarik dari belakang,” kata Ramang.

Akhir karier
Kejayaan Ramang ternyata singkat saja, tahun 1960, sesudah namanya sempat melangit ia dijatuhi skorsing. Ramang dituduh makan suap. Tahun 1962 ia dipanggil kembali, tapi pamornya sudah berkurang. Pada tahun 1968, dalam usia 40 tahun, Ramang bermain untuk terakhir kalinya membela kesebelasan PSM di Medan, yang berakhir dengan kekalahan. Meskipun setelah itu kariernya di sepak bola tidaklah betul-betul mati. Saat ia sedang menggelepar-gelepar seperti ikan di daratan, ia mendapatkan panggilan Bupati Blitar untuk menjadi pelatih di sana.

Karier kepelatihan
Karier kepelatihan Ramang juga tercatat di PSM dan Persipal Palu. Sewaktu menjadi pelatih di Persipal, ia bahkan pernah dihadiahi satu hektar kebun cengkeh oleh masyarakat Donggala, Palu, karena prestasinya membawa Persipal menjadi satu tim yang disegani di Indonesia. Penghargaan seperti ini tak pernah ia dapatkan di PSM Makassar. Tetapi menjadi pelatih sepak bola ternyata tidak mudah bagi seorang tamatan Sekolah Rakyat seperti Ramang. Ia kemudian harus disingkirkan pelan-pelan hanya karena ia tidak memiliki sertifikat kepelatihan. Dalam melatih, Ramang hanya mengajarkan pengalamannya ditambah dengan teori yang pernah ia dapatkan dari mantan pelatih PSSI, Tony Pogacknic, yang ia sangat hormati.
Ramang pernah menyebut bahwa pemain sepak bola sepertinya tidak lebih berharga dari kuda pacuan. “Kuda pacuan dipelihara sebelum dan sesudah bertanding, menang atau kalah. Tapi pemain bola hanya dipelihara kalau ada panggilan. Sesudah itu tak ada apa-apa lagi,” katanya dengan kecewa. Namun Ramang sudah berketetapan hati menutup kisah masa lampaunya itu. “Buat apa mengenang masa-masa seperti itu sementara orang lebih menghargai kuda pacuan?” katanya. Kekecewaan itu tampaknya begitu berat merundungnya, hingga ia seringkali sengaja sembunyi hanya untuk mengelak wawancara dengan seorang wartawan. Meski banyak dorongan dan tawaran buat menulis biografinya, ia selalu menggelengkan kepala. Dulu katanya, memang pernah ada seseorang yang menerbitkan riwayat hidupnya. Tapi ia sendiri sudah lupa judul buku dan nama penulisnya.

Meninggal dunia
Suatu malam di tahun 1981, sehabis melatih anak-anak PSM, Ramang pulang dengan pakaian basah dan membuatnya sakit. Enam tahun ia menderita sakit di paru-parunya tanpa bisa berobat ke Rumah sakit karena kekurangan biaya. Pada tanggal 26 September 1987, di usia 59 tahun, mantan pemain sepak bola legendaris itu meninggal dunia di rumahnya yang sangat sederhana yang ia huni bersama anak, menantu dan cucunya yang semuanya berjumlah 19 orang. Ramang dimakamkan di TPU Panaikang. Untuk mengenang jasanya, sebuah patung di lapangan Karebosi dibuat untuknya. Selain itu hingga sekarang salah satu julukan PSM Makassar adalah Pasukan Ramang.
Ironis memang mengetahui kisah hidup mantan bintang sepak bola itu. Apalagi Ramang kini hanya diapresiasi dengan sebuah patung yang dibuat seadanya, yang berdiri di pintu utara Lapangan Karebosi.

2.Endang Witarsa (Lie Soen Yoe)

Drg. Endang Witarsa alias Lim Sun Yu atau Liem Soen Joe (lahir di Kebumen, Jawa Tengah, 16 Oktober 1916 – meninggal di Jakarta, 2 April 2008 pada umur 91 tahun) adalah mantan pemain sepak bola dan pernah memperkuat tim nasional sepak bola Indonesia. Setelah pensiun sebagai pemain, Witarsa beralih menjadi pelatih sepak bola dan penasehat PSSI.

Endang Witarsa lulus sebagai dokter gigi, namun memutuskan untuk berkarier di dunia sepak bola dengan memulai karier di klub UMS atau Union Makes Strength, Bandung yang saat itu masih bernama Tiong Hoa Hwee Koan Scholar Football Club. Atas predikatnya sebagi dokter gigi, oleh rekan-rekan dan anak didiknya, dia dipanggil sebagai “Dokter”.

Sebagai pelatih, Endang Witarsa dikenal sebagai pelatih yang sangat disegani dan sangat keras dan disiplin, dan tak segan memaki dan menghardik pemain yang malas atau tidak menjalankan instruksinya dengan baik.

 Fan Tek Fong – Hadi Mulyadi “puas hidup dengan kebanggaan”

 

 

Masa Kejayaan
Tek Fong, demikian ia biasa dipanggil, mulai mengenal sepak bola saat berusia 10 tahun. Ketika itu, ia hampir setiap hari datang ke Petak Sinkian untuk melihat Thio Him Tjiang, Djamiaat Dhalhar, Kwee Kiat Sek, Chris Ong, dan Van der Vin berlatih di bawah pimpinan pelatih Drg. Endang Witarsa (Liem Sun Yu). Pada tahun 1960 Tek Fong diterima masuk Union Makes Strength (UMS) setelah Dokter Endang melihat ada kelebihan di kakinya. Hampir bersamaan dengannya, masuk pula Surya Lesmana, Reni Salaki, Kwee Tik Liong, dan Yudo Hadianto.

Tek Fong adalah satu dari sekian banyak murid terbaik Endang Witarsa. Endang tak hanya menjadikannya sebagai libero andal di masanya, tapi juga mengajarkan bagaimana menjalani hidup di luar lapangan. Ketika Endang dipercaya menjadi pelatih Persija Jakarta pada tahun 1963, Ia juga membawa Tek Fong untuk bergabung. Tek Fong bersama dengan Soetjipto Suntoro, Taher Yusuf, dan Domingus Wawayae berhasil membawa Persija menjadi juara Perserikatan 1963. Tek Fong kemudian pindah ke klub Pardedetex Medan pada tahun 1969.

Saat Dokter Endang dipercaya sebagai pelatih tim nasional, Ia juga meminta Tek Fong untuk bergabung. Pretasinya di tim nasional semakin cemerlang. Tek Fong bersama dengan Soetjipto Soentoro, Abdul Kadir, Risdianto, Surya Lesmana, Yakob Sihasale, Reni Salaki, Yuswardi, serta Anwar Udjang berhasil membawa berbagai gelar juara ke Indonesia.

Tek Fong kemudian memperkuat Klub Warna Agung pada tahun 1972. Benny Mulyono, pemilik klub, memintanya untuk menarik sejumlah pemain nasional memperkuat klub pabrik cat yang bermarkas di Jalan Pangeran Jayakarta. Di bawah pelatih drg. Endang Witarsa, Tek Fong bersama dengan Risdianto, Rully Nere, M. Basri, Yakob Sihasale, Timo Kapissa, dan Robby Binur mengantar klub Warna Agung ke puncak kejayaan.

Tek Fong memang tak tergeserkan selama delapan tahun di tim nasional. Ia tidak hanya membawa Persija Jakarta menjadi juara Perserikatan pada tahun 1963 tetapi juga ikut mempersembahkan empat gelar juara bagi tim nasional Indonesia, yaitu; King’s Cup 1968, Merdeka Games 1969, Anniversary Cup 1972, dan Pesta Sukan 1972.


Dokter Endang sebagai Guru Besar
Tek Fong menganggap drg Endang Witarsa sebagai guru besarnya. Dokter Endang adalah pelatih ketika Tek Fong memperkuat UMS, Persija Jakarta, Warna Agung, dan tim nasional PSSI. Baginya, dokter Endang adalah sumber inspirasi karena hidupnya benar-benar dibaktikan pada sepak bola.

Tek Fong tidak jauh dari Dokter Endang ketika sang legenda tersebut menjalani perawatan hingga akhirnya mengembuskan napas terakhir. Ia menangis ketika ikut merasakan apa yang dirasakan Dokter. Ketika Dokter Endang sedang menahan kesakitan, Ia masih sempat-sempatnya menanyakan kondisi lapangan Petak Sinkian.

Tek Fong masih teringat ajaran-ajaran yang diberikan Dokter Endang. Dokter Endang selalu mengingatkan agar Tek Fong bersikap jujur, tidak berbohong, dan memelihara pertemanan dengan baik. Ia baru menyadari pertemanan yang dimaksud ketika Dokter memindahkannya dari Persija ke Pardedetex Medan pada 1969. Ternyata Dokter sudah berteman dengan T.D. Pardede ketika pengusaha Medan itu mendirikan klub Pardedetex.

Berkarier menjadi Pelatih
Setelah 12 tahun menjadi pemain sepak bola, Tek Fong kini menjadi salah satu pelatih Sekolah Sepak Bola Union Makes Strength (UMS), klub sepak bola yang sudah berusia lebih dari 100 tahun. “Saya ingin menghabiskan masa tua di sini,” katanya. Ia adalah sedikit dari banyak pemain nasional etnis Tionghoa yang masih tersisa.

Sebagian mimpi lelaki dengan dua anak ini kini terwujud. Tek Fong sangat bangga ketika memperkenalkan Robo Solissa, yang bermain untuk klub UMS, anggota Divisi Utama Persija Jakarta. Nyong Ambon itu adalah hasil didikannya selama tiga tahun di Sekolah Sepak Bola UMS di Petak Sinkian.

Tek Fong tidak terlalu peduli walau dia tak mendapatkan apa-apa kecuali kebanggaan saat membesarkan meteor bola baru. “Jangan tanya saya punya apa dari sepak bola,” katanya. Kebanggaan baginya tak bisa dikalahkan dengan apa pun, bahkan dengan uang. Lelaki yang hampir setiap hari berada di lapangan Petak Sinkian itu memang tak punya apa-apa. Hidupnya jauh dari mentereng. Lelaki itu cukup puas hidup dengan kebanggaan.

The Indonesia national football team represents Indonesia in international football; it is controlled by the Football Association of Indonesia (PSSI). Despite football being one of the nation’s favourite sports, Indonesia is not among the strongest teams in the AFC. However, in history they are considered as one of the strong teams in Southeast Asia. Prior to independence in 1945, the team competed as the Dutch East Indies national football team.

History

 Early days

The early matches involving sides from the Dutch East Indies were organised by the Nederlandsch Indische Voetbal Bond (NIVB) or its successor, the Nederlandsch Indische Voetbal Unie (NIVU). The matches prior to independence in 1945 are not recognised by PSSI (the Football Association of Indonesia).[1]

The first recorded football match involving a side from the Dutch East Indies was against a side from Singapore on March 28, 1921. The match was played in Batavia and was won 1–0. This was followed by matches against an Australian XI in August 1928 (won 2–1) and a team from Shanghai two years later (4–4).[1]

In 1934, a team from Java represented the Dutch East Indies in the Far Eastern Games played in Manila, Philippines. Despite defeating Japan 7–1 in their first match,[2] the next two matches ended in defeats (2–0 to China and 3–2 to the host nation) resulting in a second-place finish in the tournament for the Javan team. Although not recognized by PSSI, these matches are treated as the first matches involving the Indonesian national side by the World Football Elo ratings.[3]

FIFA World Cup

Dutch East Indies players line up in Reims, France in 1938 to face Hungary.

Indonesia, under the name Dutch East Indies, was the first Asian team to participate in the World Cup when they qualified to the 1938 tournament. A 6-0 first-round loss in Reims to eventual finalists Hungary remains the country’s only appearance in the World Cup.

In 1958, the team tasted their first World Cup action as Indonesia in the qualifying rounds. They got past China in the first round, but subsequently refused to play their next opponents Israel due to political issues. The team subsequently suffered a ban from FIFA World Cup from 1958 to 1974 due to unfavorable internal and external political situation. It was only almost two decades later that Indonesia returned to the fold.

 Asian Cup

Indonesia’s first appearance in the AFC Asian Cup was in the United Arab Emirates in 1996. During the tournament Indonesia only gained one point from drawing against Kuwait in the first round. Their second appearance in Asian Cup was in Lebanon in 2000: again, they gained only one point from three games, and again, from a draw against Kuwait.

Indonesia eventually established better record in 2004, beating Qatar 2-1 to record their first ever victory in the history of tournament. Nevertheless, as luck had it, the win was unfortunately not enough to qualify for the second round.

Their participation in 2007 was especially notable as Indonesia acted as one (of four) co-hosts of the tournament. The national team proceeded by defeating Bahrain 2-1 in the first match, however, the next two ties proved tough as they face Asian giants Saudi Arabia and South Korea. Despite arguably decent performance both ties ended in narrow 1-2 and 0-1 defeat — thus sealing their fate as third place in the group.

ASEAN Football Championship

Indonesia has somewhat decent record in ASEAN Football Championship, reaching the final four times (2000, 2002, 2004, and 2010), albeit never able to lift the trophy. Their claim of regional titles came via Southeast Asian Games in 1987 and 1991, whilst only getting bronze or silver medals in recent time.

It was perceived that, right after the historic 2004 Asian Cup campaign, Indonesia might be on verge of growing stature in ASEAN football scene. Under the guidance of former Aston Villa and England striker Peter Withe, the South-East Asian outfit looked set to continue success in terms of football development and FIFA World Rankings. However they failed on the group stage of ASEAN Football Championship, and on January 18, 2007, Withe was immediately sacked. He was replaced by Bulgarian Ivan Venkov Kolev.

After the Withe era, the inability to fulfill ASEAN target has been cited as reason for Indonesian managerial rolling door. During two years time Indonesia national team had seen Kolev succeeded by local coach Benny Dollo, whom was in turn getting sacked in 2010. As of recently Indonesian national team head coach position is held by Alfred Riedl, former national coach of Vietnam and Laos.

 The 1998 Tiger Cup Controversy

The regional 1998 ASEAN Football Championship tournament was perhaps infamous in respect to Indonesian football history. In what was supposedly a sporting event, the group stage match between Thailand and Indonesia was marred with an unsportsmanlike attempt. At the time both teams had already qualified for semi-finals, but with knowledge that winners would have to face hosts Vietnam, while the losing team would play the supposedly-weaker Singapore. There was also technical incentive that facing Vietnam would mean moving training bases from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi — which none of the team would wish to do.

The first half saw very little action as both teams barely making attempt to score. During the second half both teams managed to score, partly thanks to half-hearted defending, resulting in a 2–2 tie after 90 minutes. However the real infamy didn’t take place until extra time, in which Indonesian defender Mursyid Effendi deliberately kicked the ball into his own goal (despite the Thais’ attempts to stop him doing so).

This turn of events led to Thailand winning the match 3-2, sending them to face Vietnam. Nevertheless repercussion and outrage followed after the match: both teams were eventually fined for “violating the spirit of the game”, and Mursyid Effendi was banned from football for life.

Ironically in the semi-finals, Thailand lost to Vietnam, and Indonesia also lost to Singapore, pitting the team once again for third-place playoff. Indonesia eventually won by penalty shootout, as in the final, unfancied Singapore made one of the competition’s biggest shocks by defeating Vietnam.

Kit

Kit used in the 1938 FIFA World Cup

Indonesia’s football jersey in 1981

During the Dutch colonial era, the team competed as Dutch East Indies in international matches and played in an orange jersey, the national colour of the Netherlands. There are no official documents about the team’s kit, only several black-and-white photos from the match against Hungary in the 1938 FIFA World Cup, but unofficial documents stated that the kit consisted of an orange jersey, white shorts and light blue socks.[4] After Indonesia’s independence, the kit consists the colours of the country’s flag, which are red and white. A combination of green and white has also been used for the away kits, and was used from the team’s participation in the 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbourne, Australia, until in the mid 1980s.[5] During the 1990s, the colour changed to all-red for the home kit and all-white for the away kit. In 2007, just before the start of the Asian Cup, the original colours were restored.

The shirt badge has always been the Garuda Pancasila, Indonesia’s coat of arms. This is where the inspiration of the song Garuda di Dadaku (Garuda on My Chest) came from. The song is a modified version of a Papuan folk song, Apuse, with the lyrics changed. It was made by Persija Jakarta football fans, and was popularized by Jakmania which was recorded for a movie under the same name.

 Home Stadium

Gelora Bung Karno Stadium, Jakarta

The Indonesian home stadium is the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium, Jakarta. The stadium capacity is 88,083. The stadium is the largest Stadium in Indonesia, it is also the largest stadium in South East Asia and the 10th Biggest football stadium in the world. It is located in Jakarta, Indonesia. The stadium was built in 1960 for the 1962 Asian Games and is the home stadium of Indonesia football team up to present.

William Ralph Dean (22 January 1907 – 1 March 1980), better known as Dixie Dean, was an English football player. Dean originally started his career with Birkenhead based Tranmere Rovers before moving on to professional team Everton, the club he had supported as a child, where he became one of the most prolific goal-scorers in English football history. Dean played the majority of his career at Everton before injuries caught up with him and he moved on to new challenges at Notts County and Ireland’s Sligo Rovers. He is best known for his exploits in 1927-28 season which saw Dean score 60 league goals – a record which stands to this day.

A statue of Dean was unveiled outside Goodison Park in May 2001. A year later Dean became one of four players inducted into the inaugural national football hall of fame.

He was the first football player to wear the “number 9” shirt in club football. Dean is regarded as one of the greatest pre-war sports heroes in British culture.[citation needed]

Early years

Dean was born at 325 Laird Street in Birkenhead, Cheshire a major town on the Wirral Peninsula. It is on the opposite side of the River Mersey to Liverpool. Dean’s family on both his mother and father’s side hailed from Chester. He was the grandson of Ralph Brett, a train driver who drove the royal train during the reign of George V. Dean grew up as a supporter of Everton thanks to the efforts of his father, William Sr who once took him during the 1914-1915 title winning season.

During his youth he had played football for Laird Street School (Birkenhead), Moreton Bible Class, Heswall and Pensby United.

Dean’s childhood coincided with the first world war and between the age of 7 and 11 he delivered cow’s milk to local families as part of the “war effort”: “Well, it was war time you see, so you were grafting all the time. I used to take milk out. I’d be up at half-past four in the morning and go down and get the ponies and the milk floats, then I’d come out to this place in Upton, between Upton and Arrowe Park, and Burgess’ Farm was there. We used to collect the milk in the big urns and take it out to people’s houses, serving it out of the ladle. And not only that, you had an allotment, and that was in school time. And there was no such thing as pinching and stealing and all that bloody caper. In those days, you were growing all that stuff and you needed it for the war time.”[2]

Dean attended Laird Street School[3] but felt he was given no formal education. He said: “My only lesson was football[…]I used to give the pens out on Friday afternoons…the ink, and the chalks. That was the only job I had in school[…]I never had any lessons.”[2]

When he turned 11, he stayed at Albert Industrial school, a borstal school in Birkenhead because his family had no room for him in the house due to having a large family and Dean was happy with the arrangement as he could play for the borstal school’s football team.[3]

He left school aged 14 and worked for Wirral Railway as an apprentice fitter, his father William Sr. also worked there. His father had been working on the railway since he was 11 years old[2] for Great Western Railway, he later became as a train driver before moving to Birkenhead to work for Wirral Railway and be closer to his future wife and William Jr.’s mother Sarah. Dean’s father William Sr. would later retire with the company.[3]

Dean took on a night-job so that he could concentrate on his first love, football: “The other two apprentice fitters, they didn’t like the night job because there were too many bloody rats around there, coming out of the Anglo-oil company and the Vacamoil company…rats as big as whippets. So I took their night job, and of course, I could always have a game of football then.”[2]

His manager at Wirral Railway’s sons were directors of New Brighton A.F.C. and they had expressed an interested in signing Dean. Dean had told the club that he was not interested in signing and would later play for local team Pensby United in Pensby. It was at Pensby United where Dean attracted attention of a Tranmere Rovers scout.[2]

 “Dixie” nickname

Dean never appreciated the Dixie nickname and preferred people to call him or “Bill” or “Billy. The popular theory regarding how Dean acquired the nickname Dixie is that he did so in his youth, perhaps due to his dark complexion and hair which bore a resemblance to people from the Southern United States.[4] In Dean’s obituary in The Times, Geoffrey Green suggested that the nickname was taken from a “Dixie” song that was in the chart during Dean’s childhood as there was “something of the Uncle Tom about his features”.[5]

Alternatively, the Tranmere Rovers historian Gilbert Upton uncovered evidence that the name ‘Dixie’ could be a corruption of his childhood nickname, Digsy – acquired from his approach to the children’s game of tag, where Dean would dig his fist into the girl’s back, hence ‘Digsy’.[6]

 Club career

Tranmere Rovers

Dean initially played for his local club Tranmere Rovers before moving to Everton. Whilst at Tranmere, he was on the receiving end of a tough challenge which resulted in him losing a testicle in a reserve[7] game against Altrincham.[8]

He scored 27 goals in 30 league appearances for Tranmere Rovers and was attracting the interest of many clubs across England including Arsenal F.C. and Newcastle United F.C..[2]

Everton

Dean had first seen Everton play aged 8 years old at Goodison Park. It was a dream come true for him when Everton secretary Thomas H. McIntosh arranged to meet him at the Woodside Hotel in 1925. Dean was so excited that he ran the 2.5 miles (4.0 km) distance from his home in the North End of Birkenhead to the riverside to meet him.[2]

He later revealed he was expecting a £300 signing fee to be given to his parents when he transferred to Everton but they received only £30. Tranmere Rovers’ Bert Cook told him “that’s all the League will allow”. Dean appealed to the John McKenna, the Football Association Chairman but was told “I’m afraid you’ve signed, and that’s it.”[2]

Dean signed for Everton for £3,000. Then a record fee received for Tranmere Rovers. The new signing made an immediate impact, scoring 32 goals in his first full season.

A motorcycling accident at Holywell in North Wales left Dean with a fractured skull and jaw in the summer 1926. Doctors were unsure of whether he would be able to play again. Fortunately he did do and in his very next game for Everton he scored using his head leading Evertonians to joke that the doctor had left the metal plate in Dean’s head.

He is still the only player in English football to have scored 60 League goals in one season (1927-28).[9]

In the same season Everton won the First Division title. Although Everton were relegated to Second Division in 1930, Dean stayed with them, and the club subsequently won the Second Division in 1931, followed by the First Division again in 1932, and the FA Cup in 1933 (in which he scored in the final itself) – a sequence of success not matched since.

In December 1933, Dean issued a public appeal to have goods stolen to him returned. The Times newspaper issued a statement reading: “Dixie Dean, the Everton and England forward appeals to the thief who robbed him of an international cap and presentation clock to return them.His house in Caldy Road, Walton, Liverpool was entered in his absence over Christmas, and the thief left behind gold watches and jewelry(sic).” [10]

By then, Dean was captain of the side. However, the harsh physical demands of the game (as it was played then) took their toll, and he was dropped from the first team in 1937.

Notts County

Dean went on to play for Notts County for one season.

 Sligo Rovers

At 32, Dean signed for Irish team Sligo Rovers in January 1939 in time to help the club with their FAI Cup campaign. On his arrival, the Railway Pub in Sligo town centre was said to be crammed with wondrous locals, clamouring to catch a glimpse of the legendary player. He scored 10 goals in seven games for the Connacht club[11] including 5 in a 7-1 win over Waterford which remains a club record for the most goals scored in a single game.

He also played four Cup matches scoring once. His goal came in the final against Shelbourne which ended in a 1-1 draw, Shelbourne taking the replay 0-1. Subsequently, Dean’s runners up medal was stolen from his hotel room. On a return trip to Ireland to watch Rovers 39 years later in the 1978 cup final a package was delivered to his hotel room with the medal inside.

Ashton United

He ended his professional playing days with Hurst F.C. in the Cheshire County League 1939-40 season, managing two games and one goal before the outbreak of war truncated his career. He made his debut is a 4-0 loss to Stalybridge Celtic and 5,600 people attended the game and Ashton United took gate receipts of £140[12]

 International career

Dean made his début for the England national football team against British rivals Wales at the Racecourse Ground in Wrexham February 1927 less than a month after his 20th birthday. His final game for England came in the form of a 1-0 victory over Ireland in October 1932 at Blackpool F.C.‘s Bloomfield Road when Dean was 25 years old.

Dean was involved in the 1927 and 1929 editions of the British Home Championship. During the 1927 edition, Dean four goals in his two games for England. He scored twice against Scotland at Hampden Park. Despite the loss, the Scots won the competition overall and applauded Dean for his efforts who finished the tournament as top scorer. In the 1929 edition he scored in his only outing against Ireland at Goodison Park.

The only international competitions outside of the British Home Championship during Dean’s international career were the 1928 and 1936 Olympic Games and the inaugural FIFA World Cup which took place in 1930 but Great Britain nor England participated.

In total Dean represented England 16 times and scored 18 goals in 8 games including hat-tricks against Belgium and Luxembourg.

Personal life and post-football career

Dean became a Freemason in 1931 while still playing for Everton and England. He was initiated in Randle Holme Lodge, No. 3261 on 18 February 1931 in Birkenhead, Cheshire.[13]

After retiring, he went on to run the Dublin Packet pub in Chester, (Everton and the Dublin Packet commemorates this with memorabilia) and work at Littlewoods Football pools as a porter at their Walton Hall Avenue offices, where he was remembered by fellow workers as a quiet, unassuming man.

In January 1972 he was admitted to St. Catherine’s hospital in Birkenhead suffering from effects of influenza.[14] He was released a month later.[15]

In November 1976 he had his right leg amputated due to a blood clot. His health was waning and Dean could not leave his house as much as he would like to.

Death

Dean died on 1 March 1980, aged 73 after suffering a heart attack at Everton’s home ground Goodison Park whilst watching a match against their closest rivals, Liverpool. It was the first time that Dean had visited Goodison Park for several years due to ill-health.

He belongs to the company of the supremely great, like Beethoven, Shakespeare and Rembrandt.

The funeral took place at St. James Church on Laird Street, the street where he was born in Birkenhead.[17]

 Legacy

Dixie Dean Statue, outside the Park End of Goodison Park stadium

Dean was an internationally renowned figure. Military records show that during the Second World War an Italian prisoner of war was captured by British troops in the Western Desert, and told his captors “fuck your Winston Churchill and fuck your Dixie Dean”,[18] exemplifying Dean’s international status. One of the soldiers present was Liverpool-born Patrick Connelly who later went into show business using the pseudonym “Bill Dean“.[18]

Everton arranged a testimonial for Dean in April 1964. Between 34 and 40 thousand people attended to see a Scotland XI and England XI, composed of players from Everton and Liverpool, compete.[19]

In May 2001, local sculptor Tom Murphy completed a statue of Dean which was erected outside the Park End of the stadium at a cost of £75,000 carrying the inscription, “Footballer, Gentleman, Evertonian”.[20]

In 2002 Dean became an Inaugural Inductee to the English Football Hall of Fame.[21]

There is an award named the “Dixie Dean” which is given to the Merseyside player of the year, it has been won by players of his former clubs Tranmere and Everton – and even Liverpool F.C.[22]

When asked if he thought his record of scoring 60 goals in a season would be broken, he said: “People ask me if that 60-goal record will ever be beaten. I think it will. But there’s only one man who’ll do it. That’s the fellow that walks on the water. I think he’s about the only one.”

In total, Dean scored 383 goals for Everton, in 433 appearances, an exceptional strike-rate, including 37 hat-tricks. Modern scoring rates are lower, so both that record, and the record of 60 League goals in a season, are unlikely to be broken.[citation needed] He was also known as a very sporting player, never booked or sent off throughout his entire career despite suffering rough treatment and provocation from opponents.[23] Only Arthur Rowley has scored more English league career goals, although it should be noted that while Rowley made 619 appearances, scoring 433 goals (0.70 goals per game), Dean scored 379 goals in 438 games (0.87 goals per game), and Dean spent only a single season in the Second Division while Rowley spent several seasons in the third and fourth divisions.

History Of Association Football (Soccer)

Introduction

I’ve been collecting  trading cards, cigarette cards and related collectibles  for over twenty five years.

Prominent soccer players and teams were vividly portrayed on cigarette cards from the late 19th century through to just before WWII. Association football’s popularity snowballed throughout the world and demand for early soccer memorabilia is increasing rapidly. It would be impractical to list every soccer set issued and so I’ve listed a selection of the more unusual and rare soccer card sets .

I’ve provided color digital photo or scans of a sample card from each set and where possible, I’ve tried to include the names of players and their respective football teams. i know this articles and illustrations still not complete ,that is why I need comment and suggestion to upgrade this exhibition, for the collectors new infos ,thanks very much.

    The History Of Soccer

     

    History of Association Football

    England playing Scotland in the first-ever international football game (The Oval, 1872)

    The Royal Engineers team who reached the first FA Cup final in 1872

    Games revolving around the kicking of a ball have been played in many countries throughout history. According to FIFA, the “The very earliest form of the game for which there is scientific evidence was an exercise from a military manual dating back to the second and third centuries BC in China.”[15] The modern rules of association football are based on the mid-19th century efforts to standardise the widely varying forms of football played at the public schools of England. The history of football in England dates back to at least the eighth century.[16]

    The Cambridge Rules, first drawn up at Cambridge University in 1848, were particularly influential in the development of subsequent codes, including association football. The Cambridge Rules were written at Trinity College, Cambridge, at a meeting attended by representatives from Eton, Harrow, Rugby, Winchester and Shrewsbury schools. They were not universally adopted. During the 1850s, many clubs unconnected to schools or universities were formed throughout the English-speaking world, to play various forms of football. Some came up with their own distinct codes of rules, most notably the Sheffield Football Club, formed by former public school pupils in 1857,[17] which led to formation of a Sheffield FA in 1867. In 1862, John Charles Thring of Uppingham School also devised an influential set of rules.[18]

    These ongoing efforts contributed to the formation of The Football Association (The FA) in 1863, which first met on the morning of 26 October 1863 at the Freemasons’ Tavern in Great Queen Street, London.[19] The only school to be represented on this occasion was Charterhouse. The Freemason’s Tavern was the setting for five more meetings between October and December, which eventually produced the first comprehensive set of rules. At the final meeting, the first FA treasurer, the representative from Blackheath, withdrew his club from the FA over the removal of two draft rules at the previous meeting: the first allowed for running with the ball in hand; the second for obstructing such a run by hacking (kicking an opponent in the shins), tripping and holding. Other English rugby football clubs followed this lead and did not join the FA, or subsequently left the FA and instead in 1871 formed the Rugby Football Union. The eleven remaining clubs, under the charge of Ebenezer Cobb Morley, went on to ratify the original thirteen laws of the game.[19] These rules included handling of the ball by “marks” and the lack of a crossbar, rules which made it remarkably similar to Victorian rules football being developed at that time in Australia. The Sheffield FA played by its own rules until the 1870s with the FA absorbing some of its rules until there was little difference between the games.[20]

    The laws of the game are currently determined by the International Football Association Board (IFAB).[21] The Board was formed in 1886[22] after a meeting in Manchester of The Football Association, the Scottish Football Association, the Football Association of Wales, and the Irish Football Association. The world’s oldest football competition is the FA Cup, which was founded by C. W. Alcock and has been contested by English teams since 1872. The first official international football match took place in 1872 between Scotland and England in Glasgow, again at the instigation of C. W. Alcock. England is home to the world’s first football league, which was founded in Birmingham in 1888 by Aston Villa director William McGregor.[23] The original format contained 12 clubs from the Midlands and the North of England. FIFA, the international football body, was formed in Paris in 1904 and declared that they would adhere to Laws of the Game of the Football Association.[24] The growing popularity of the international game led to the admittance of FIFA representatives to the International Football Association Board in 1913. The board currently consists of four representatives from FIFA and one representative from each of the four British associations.[25]

    Today, football is played at a professional level all over the world. Millions of people regularly go to football stadiums to follow their favourite teams,[26] while billions more watch the game on television or on the internet.[27] A very large number of people also play football at an amateur level. According to a survey conducted by FIFA published in 2001, over 240 million people from more than 200 countries regularly play football.[28] Football has the highest global television audience in sport.[29]

    In many parts of the world football evokes great passions and plays an important role in the life of individual fans, local communities, and even nations. The Côte d’Ivoire national football team helped secure a truce to the nation’s civil war in 2006[30] and it helped further reduce tensions between government and rebel forces in 2007 by playing a match in the rebel capital of Bouaké, an occasion that brought both armies together peacefully for the first time.[31] By contrast, football is widely considered to be the final proximate cause in the Football War in June 1969 between El Salvador and Honduras.[32] The sport also exacerbated tensions at the beginning of the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s, when a match between Dinamo Zagreb and Red Star Belgrade devolved into rioting in March 1990.[33]

    Laws

    There are 17 laws in the official Laws of the Game. The same laws are designed to apply to all levels of football, although certain modifications for groups such as juniors, seniors, women and people with physical disabilities are permitted. The laws are often framed in broad terms, which allow flexibility in their application depending on the nature of the game. The Laws of the Game are published by FIFA, but are maintained by the International Football Association Board (IFAB), not FIFA itself.[34] In addition to the seventeen laws, numerous IFAB decisions and other directives contribute to the regulation of football. The most complex of the laws is offside. The offside law limits the ability of attacking players to receive the ball when closer to the opponent’s goal line than: the ball itself; the second-to-last defending player (which can include the goalkeeper); and the half-way line.[9]

    Players, equipment, and officials

    Each team consists of a maximum of eleven players (excluding substitutes), one of whom must be the goalkeeper. Competition rules may state a minimum number of players required to constitute a team, which is usually seven. Goalkeepers are the only players allowed to play the ball with their hands or arms, provided they do so within the penalty area in front of their own goal. Though there are a variety of positions in which the outfield (non-goalkeeper) players are strategically placed by a coach, these positions are not defined or required by the Laws.[12]

    The basic equipment or kit players are required to wear includes a shirt, shorts, socks, footwear and adequate shin guards. Headgear is not a required piece of basic equipment, but players today may choose to wear it to protect themselves from head injury. Players are forbidden to wear or use anything that is dangerous to themselves or another player, such as jewellery or watches. The goalkeeper must wear clothing that is easily distinguishable from that worn by the other players and the match officials.[35]

    A number of players may be replaced by substitutes during the course of the game. The maximum number of substitutions permitted in most competitive international and domestic league games is three, though the permitted number may vary in other competitions or in friendly matches. Common reasons for a substitution include injury, tiredness, ineffectiveness, a tactical switch, or timewasting at the end of a finely poised game. In standard adult matches, a player who has been substituted may not take further part in a match.[36] IFAB recommends that “that a match should not continue if there are fewer than seven players in either team.” Any decision regarding points awarded for abandoned games is left to the individual football associations.[37]

    A game is officiated by a referee, who has “full authority to enforce the Laws of the Game in connection with the match to which he has been appointed” (Law 5), and whose decisions are final. The referee is assisted by two assistant referees. In many high-level games there is also a fourth official who assists the referee and may replace another official should the need arise.[38]

    Pitch

    Standard pitch measurements

    As the Laws were formulated in England, and were initially administered solely by the four British football associations within IFAB, the standard dimensions of a football pitch were originally expressed in imperial units. The Laws now express dimensions with approximate metric equivalents (followed by traditional units in brackets), though popular use tends to continue to use traditional units in English-speaking countries with a relatively recent history of metrication, such as Britain.[39]

    The length of the pitch for international adult matches is in the range of 100–110 m (110–120 yd) and the width is in the range of 64–75 m (70–80 yd). Fields for non-international matches may be 91–120 m (100–130 yd) length and 45–91 m (50–101 yd) in width, provided that the pitch does not become square. Although in 2008, the IFAB initially approved a fixed size of 105 m long and 68 m wide as a standard pitch dimension for A international matches,[40] this decision was later put on hold and was never actually implemented.[41]

    The longer boundary lines are touchlines, while the shorter boundaries (on which the goals are placed) are goal lines. A rectangular goal is positioned at the middle of each goal line.[42] The inner edges of the vertical goal posts must be 7.32 m (8 yd) apart, and the lower edge of the horizontal crossbar supported by the goal posts must be 2.44 m (8 ft) above the ground. Nets are usually placed behind the goal, but are not required by the Laws.[43]

    In front of each goal is an area known as the penalty area. This area is marked by the goal line, two lines starting on the goal line 16.5 m (18 yd) from the goalposts and extending 16.5 m (18 yd) into the pitch perpendicular to the goal line, and a line joining them. This area has a number of functions, the most prominent being to mark where the goalkeeper may handle the ball and where a penalty foul by a member of the defending team becomes punishable by a penalty kick. Other markings define the position of the ball or players at kick-offs, goal kicks, penalty kicks and corner kicks.[44]

    Duration and tie-breaking methods

    A standard adult football match consists of two periods of 45 minutes each, known as halves. Each half runs continuously, meaning that the clock is not stopped when the ball is out of play. There is usually a 15-minute half-time break between halves. The end of the match is known as full-time.[45] The referee is the official timekeeper for the match, and may make an allowance for time lost through substitutions, injured players requiring attention, or other stoppages. This added time is commonly referred to as stoppage time or injury time, and is at the sole discretion of the referee. The referee alone signals the end of the match. In matches where a fourth official is appointed, toward the end of the half the referee signals how many minutes of stoppage time he intends to add. The fourth official then informs the players and spectators by holding up a board showing this number. The signalled stoppage time may be further extended by the referee.[45] Added time was introduced because of an incident which happened in 1891 during a match between Stoke and Aston Villa. Trailing 1–0 and with just two minutes remaining, Stoke were awarded a penalty. Villa’s goalkeeper kicked the ball out of the ground, and by the time the ball had been recovered, the 90 minutes had elapsed and the game was over.[46] The same law also stands that the duration of either half is extended until the penalty kick to be taken or retaken is completed, thus no game shall end with a penalty to be taken.[47]

    In league competitions, games may end in a draw, but in some knockout competitions if a game is tied at the end of regulation time it may go into extra time, which consists of two further 15-minute periods. If the score is still tied after extra time, some competitions allow the use of penalty shootouts (known officially in the Laws of the Game as “kicks from the penalty mark”) to determine which team will progress to the next stage of the tournament. Goals scored during extra time periods count toward the final score of the game, but kicks from the penalty mark are only used to decide the team that progresses to the next part of the tournament (with goals scored in a penalty shootout not making up part of the final score).[6]

    In competitions using two-legged matches, each team competes at home once, with an aggregate score from the two matches deciding which team progresses. Where aggregates are equal, the away goals rule may be used to determine the winners, in which case the winner is the team that scored the most goals in the leg played away from home. If the result is still equal, kicks from the penalty mark are required.[6]

    In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the IFAB experimented with ways of creating a winner without requiring a penalty shootout, which was often seen as an undesirable way to end a match. These involved rules ending a game in extra time early, either when the first goal in extra time was scored (golden goal), or if one team held a lead at the end of the first period of extra time (silver goal). Golden goal was used at the World Cup in 1998 and 2002. The first World Cup game decided by a golden goal was France‘s victory over Paraguay in 1998. Germany was the first nation to score a golden goal in a major competition, beating Czech Republic in the final of Euro 1996. Silver goal was used in Euro 2004. Both these experiments have been discontinued by IFAB.[48]

    Ball in and out of play

    Under the Laws, the two basic states of play during a game are ball in play and ball out of play. From the beginning of each playing period with a kick-off until the end of the playing period, the ball is in play at all times, except when either the ball leaves the field of play, or play is stopped by the referee. When the ball becomes out of play, play is restarted by one of eight restart methods depending on how it went out of play:

    A player takes a free kick, while the opposition form a “wall” in order to try to deflect the ball

    • Kick-off: following a goal by the opposing team, or to begin each period of play.[10]
    • Throw-in: when the ball has crossed the touchline; awarded to opposing team to that which last touched the ball.[49]
    • Goal kick: when the ball has wholly crossed the goal line without a goal having been scored and having last been touched by a player of the attacking team; awarded to defending team.[50]
    • Corner kick: when the ball has wholly crossed the goal line without a goal having been scored and having last been touched by a player of the defending team; awarded to attacking team.[51]
    • Indirect free kick: awarded to the opposing team following “non-penal” fouls, certain technical infringements, or when play is stopped to caution or send-off an opponent without a specific foul having occurred. A goal may not be scored directly from an indirect free kick.[52]
    • Direct free kick: awarded to fouled team following certain listed “penal” fouls.[52] A goal may be scored directly from a direct free kick.
    • Penalty kick: awarded to the fouled team following a foul usually punishable by a direct free kick but that has occurred within their opponent’s penalty area.[53]
    • Dropped-ball: occurs when the referee has stopped play for any other reason, such as a serious injury to a player, interference by an external party, or a ball becoming defective. This restart is uncommon in adult games.[10]

    Misconduct

     
    Players are cautioned with a yellow card, and sent off with a red card. These colours were first introduced at the 1970 FIFA World Cup and used consistently since.

    A player scores a penalty kick given after an offence is committed inside the penalty area

    A foul occurs when a player commits an offence listed in the Laws of the Game while the ball is in play. The offences that constitute a foul are listed in Law 12. Handling the ball deliberately, tripping an opponent, or pushing an opponent, are examples of “penal fouls”, punishable by a direct free kick or penalty kick depending on where the offence occurred. Other fouls are punishable by an indirect free kick.[8] The referee may punish a player or substitute’s misconduct by a caution (yellow card) or sending-off (red card). A second yellow card at the same game leads to a red card, and therefore to a sending-off. A player given a yellow card is said to have been “booked”, the referee writing the player’s name in his official notebook. If a player has been sent off, no substitute can be brought on in their place. Misconduct may occur at any time, and while the offences that constitute misconduct are listed, the definitions are broad. In particular, the offence of “unsporting behaviour” may be used to deal with most events that violate the spirit of the game, even if they are not listed as specific offences. A referee can show a yellow or red card to a player, substitute or substituted player. Non-players such as managers and support staff cannot be shown the yellow or red card, but may be expelled from the technical area if they fail to conduct themselves in a responsible manner.[8]

    Rather than stopping play, the referee may allow play to continue if doing so will benefit the team against which an offence has been committed. This is known as “playing an advantage”.[54] The referee may “call back” play and penalise the original offence if the anticipated advantage does not ensue within “a few seconds”. Even if an offence is not penalised due to advantage being played, the offender may still be sanctioned for misconduct at the next stoppage of play.[55]

    Governing bodies

    The recognised international governing body of football (and associated games, such as futsal and beach soccer) is the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA). The FIFA headquarters are located in Zurich. Six regional confederations are associated with FIFA; these are:[56]

    National associations oversee football within individual countries. These are generally synonymous with sovereign states, (for example: the Fédération Camerounaise de Football in Cameroon) but also include a smaller number of associations responsible for sub-national entities or autonomous regions (for example the Scottish Football Association in Scotland). 208 national associations are affiliated both with FIFA and with their respective continental confederations.[56]

    While FIFA is responsible for arranging competitions and most rules related to international competition, the actual Laws of the Game are set by the International Football Association Board, where each of the UK Associations has one vote, while FIFA collectively has four votes.[25]

    International competitions

    A minute’s silence before an international match

    The major international competition in football is the World Cup, organised by FIFA. This competition takes place over a four-year period. More than 190 national teams compete in qualifying tournaments within the scope of continental confederations for a place in the finals. The finals tournament, which is held every four years, involves 32 national teams competing over a four-week period.[57] The most recent tournament, the 2010 FIFA World Cup, was held in South Africa from 11 June to 11 July.[58]

    There has been a football tournament at every Summer Olympic Games since 1900, except at the 1932 games in Los Angeles.[59] Before the inception of the World Cup, the Olympics (especially during the 1920s) had the same status as the World Cup. Originally, the event was for amateurs only,[24] however, since the 1984 Summer Olympics professional players have been permitted, albeit with certain restrictions which prevent countries from fielding their strongest sides. Currently, the Olympic men’s tournament is played at Under-23 level. In the past the Olympics have allowed a restricted number of over-age players per team;[60] but that practice ceased in the 2008 Olympics. A women’s tournament was added in 1996; in contrast to the men’s event, full international sides without age restrictions play the women’s Olympic tournament.[61]

    After the World Cup, the most important international football competitions are the continental championships, which are organised by each continental confederation and contested between national teams. These are the European Championship (UEFA), the Copa América (CONMEBOL), African Cup of Nations (CAF), the Asian Cup (AFC), the CONCACAF Gold Cup (CONCACAF) and the OFC Nations Cup (OFC). The FIFA Confederations Cup is contested by the winners of all 6 continental championships, the current FIFA World Cup champions and the country which is hosting the Confederations Cup. This is generally regarded as a warm up tournament for the upcoming FIFA World Cup and does not carry the same prestige as the World Cup itself. The most prestigious competitions in club football are the respective continental championships, which are generally contested between national champions, for example the UEFA Champions League in Europe and the Copa Libertadores de América in South America. The winners of each continental competition contest the FIFA Club World Cup.[62]

    Domestic competitions

    Two players trying to win the ball

    The governing bodies in each country operate league systems in a domestic season, normally comprising several divisions, in which the teams gain points throughout the season depending on results. Teams are placed into tables, placing them in order according to points accrued. Most commonly, each team plays every other team in its league at home and away in each season, in a round-robin tournament. At the end of a season, the top team is declared the champion. The top few teams may be promoted to a higher division, and one or more of the teams finishing at the bottom are relegated to a lower division.[63] The teams finishing at the top of a country’s league may be eligible also to play in international club competitions in the following season. The main exceptions to this system occur in some Latin American leagues, which divide football championships into two sections named Apertura and Clausura (Spanish for Opening and Closing), awarding a champion for each.[64] The majority of countries supplement the league system with one or more “cup” competitions organised on a knock-out basis.

    Some countries’ top divisions feature highly paid star players; in smaller countries and lower divisions, players may be part-timers with a second job, or amateurs. The five top European leagues – the Premier League (England),[65] La Liga (Spain), Serie A (Italy), the Bundesliga (Germany) and Ligue 1 (France) – attract most of the world’s best players and each of the leagues has a total wage cost in excess of £600 million/763 million/$1.185 billion

    Career

    Bayern Munich

    Born in Metten, Bavaria, Maier has spent his entire professional career at Bayern Munich. He began playing for Bayern’s youth sides in 1958.[2] During the 1970s, he was part of the legendary Bayern team which included the likes of Franz Beckenbauer and Gerd Müller and won three European Cups in a row, a German record. Between 1966 and 1979 he played in 442 consecutive Bundesliga matches, still a German national record. His playing career came to an abrupt end in 1979 when he sustained serious injuries in a car accident (caused by DWI).

    International

    Maier was selected in the West Germany squad for four consecutive World Cups. In 1966 in England, he was a non-playing deputy to Hans Tilkowski. At the 1970 FIFA World Cup in Mexico, he was the undisputed starter and played all games (including the legendary 3–4 semifinal loss to Italy after extra time) except the third-place match.[3]

    In the 1974 FIFA World Cup on home soil, at the top of his footballing abilities, he reached the peak of his international career as the Germans went all the way to the final with a legendary team that included the likes of Franz Beckenbauer, Berti Vogts and Gerd Müller. The greatest triumph came when the hosts defeated a Johan Cruyff-inspired Netherlands team 2–1 in the final in Maier’s own hometown Munich.

    Four years later at the World Cup in Argentina, slightly past his peak but still formidable, Maier delivered a strong performance but could not prevent his side’s failing to advance past the second round. Maier also won the 1972 European Championship with West Germany and reached the final in 1976, losing to Czechoslovakia on penalty kicks. In all, he earned 95 caps for his country.

     Post-playing career

    Maier went into coaching for both club and country and mentored Oliver Kahn. In October 2004 his contract with the national side was terminated by manager Jürgen Klinsmann after Maier spoke out in favour of Kahn over Arsenal‘s Jens Lehmann in a dispute over who should be the side’s first-choice goalkeeper.[4] He continued to work as head goalkeeping coach for Bayern and retired in 2008.[5]

     Personal life

    Besides his goalkeeping exploits, Maier was famous for his overlong shorts and outsize gloves, as well as his sense of humour. He is remembered for an incident where he became bored during a match at the Olympiastadion as the opposing side had yet to threaten his goal. A duck wandered onto the pitch and Maier attempted to catch it.[6]

    In June 2009, Maier was honoured by the Bavarian government with the Life Achievement Award.[7]

    Mario Alberto Kempes (born 15 July 1954 in Bell Ville, Córdoba) is a retired Argentine footballer. His father, Mario, also a footballer, inspired him to play from a young age. At the age of 7, he began playing with a junior team and at 14, he joined La Cuarta de Talleres. He is most notable for playing for Valencia and being the focal point of Argentina’s 1978 World Cup win.

     Club career

    Kempes at Central

    Kempes was nicknamed El toro and El Matador. During his first stint with Valencia, he won two consecutive Pichichis, scoring 24 and 28 goals in 1976–77 and 1977–78. His career started at local club Instituto before quickly moving on to Rosario Central, where he scored 85 goals in 105 matches and established himself as a notorious goalscorer, which prompted a move to Valencia, where he would go on to win the Copa del Rey, the European Cup Winners’ Cup and the UEFA Super Cup. Famous as a hard-working forward, he used to strike from outside the penalty area with his surging runs goalwards and was not the traditional center-forward operating solely inside the box. Many defenders found difficulties handling his attacking style.

    Before the 1978 World Cup, Kempes was the only foreign based player on the list of coach César Luis Menotti‘s national team in Argentina, he was at the time playing for Spanish giants Valencia while the other squad members all played in Argentina. The coach described him when announcing the squad he had selected for the 1978 tournament, “He’s strong, he’s got skill, he creates spaces and he shoots hard. He’s a player who can make a difference, and he can play in a centre-forward position”.

    Kempes had been the top scorer in La Liga in each of the past two seasons and was determined to show on home soil that he could deliver against the best on the sport’s greatest stage as well. However, in 1974, at the age of 20, he failed to get on the score-sheet in West Germany and after the first round group stage in 1978, his name was still missing among goal scorers in the tournament.

    International career

    During his club career he won 43 caps for Argentina and scored 20 times. He represented his country in three World Cups in 1974, 1978 and 1982, winning the competition in 1978. He was the leading goalscorer in the 1978 tournament, scoring six goals, including two in the final itself. He has also scored some very important goals for Argentina in his career.

    In 1978 he was named South American Football Player of the Year (“El Mundo”, Caracas, Venezuela). He was named by Pelé as one of the top 125 greatest living footballers in March 2004.

     Managerial career

    Kempes made his full time coaching debut in Albania. His brief spell with Lushnja was groundbreaking, as he became the first foreign coach who signed a foreign player for the first time in Albanian soccer history. His career in Albania came to a quick end in 1997. The following year, he landed a job with Venezuelan side Mineros de Guayana. In 1999, Kempes moved to Bolivia and managed The Strongest, before taking charge of Blooming in 2000. Previously, he worked as assistant coach for Uruguayan manager Héctor Núñez in Valencia, and as a player-manager of Indonesian League champions Pelita Jaya. He announced his retirement from football management at the age of 41 in 1996.

    Commentary career

    He currently works as a football analyst and commentator in Spanish for ESPN Deportes (ESPN‘s Spanish version).

    Robert Frederick Chelsea “Bobby” Moore, OBE (12 April 1941 – 24 February 1993) was an English footballer. He captained West Ham United for more than ten years and was captain of the England team that won the 1966 World Cup. He is widely regarded as one of the all-time greats of world football, and was cited by Pelé as the greatest defender that he had ever played against.[1]

    He won a total of 108 caps for the England team, which at the time of his international retirement in 1973 was a national record. This record was later broken by 125-cap goalkeeper Peter Shilton. Moore’s total of 108 caps continued as a record for outfield players until 28 March 2009, when David Beckham gained his 109th cap.[2]

    Football career

    Early days

    Moore attended Westbury Primary School and Eastbury Secondary Modern School. He played for both schools.

    Moore joined West Ham United as a player in 1956, and after advancing through their youth set-up and played his first game on 8 September 1958 against Manchester United. In putting on the number six shirt, he replaced his mentor Malcolm Allison, who was suffering from tuberculosis.

    Allison never played another first team game for West Ham nor indeed any other First Division game, as Moore became a regular. A composed central defender, Moore was admired for his reading of the game and ability to anticipate opposition movements, thereby distancing himself from the image of the hard-tackling, high-jumping defender. Indeed, Moore’s ability to head the ball or keep up with the pace was average at best, but the way he read the game, marshalled his team and timed his tackles marked him out as world class.

    Bobby Moore also played cricket. He played county cricket for the Essex youth team alongside fellow West Ham player Geoff Hurst.[3]

    An England star, a European winner

    In 1960, Moore earned a call up to the England Under-23 squad. His form and impact on West Ham as a whole earned him a late call-up to the full England squad by Walter Winterbottom and the Football Association selection committee in 1962, when final preparations were being made for the summer’s World Cup finals in Chile. Moore was uncapped as he flew to South America with the rest of the squad, but made his début on 20 May 1962 in England’s final pre-tournament friendly – a 4–0 win over Peru in Lima. Also débuting that day was Tottenham Hotspur defender Maurice Norman. Both proved so impressive that they stayed in the team for the whole of England’s participation in the World Cup, which ended in defeat by eventual winners Brazil in the quarter finals at Viña del Mar.

    On 29 May 1963, 22-year-old Moore captained his country for the first time in just his 12th appearance after the retirement of Johnny Haynes and an injury to his successor, Jimmy Armfield. He was the youngest man ever to captain England at the highest level. England defeated Czechoslovakia 4–2 in the game and Armfield returned to the role of captain afterwards, but new coach Alf Ramsey gave Moore the job permanently during a series of summer friendlies in 1964, organised because England had failed to reach the latter stages of the inaugural European Championships.

    1964 turned out to be quite an eventful year for Moore. As well as gaining the England captaincy, he lifted the FA Cup as West Ham defeated Preston North End 3–2 in the final at Wembley, courtesy of a last-minute goal from Ronnie Boyce. On a personal level, Moore also was successfully treated for testicular cancer and was named the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year.

    The FA Cup success would become the first of three successful Wembley finals in as many years for Moore. In 1965, he lifted the European Cup Winners Cup after West Ham defeated 1860 Munich 2–0 in the final with both goals coming from Alan Sealey. By now he was the first choice captain for England with 30 caps, and around whom Ramsey was building a team to prove correct his prediction that they would win the 1966 World Cup. 1966 had a mixed start for Moore, however – he scored his first England goal in a 1–1 draw with Poland, but then captained West Ham to the final of the League Cup – in its last season before its transfer to Wembley as a one-off final – which they lost 5–3 on aggregate to West Bromwich Albion. For Moore, who had scored in the first leg, and his West Ham team-mates Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters, considerable consolation lay ahead. Moore scored his second and ultimately final England goal in a friendly against Norway, two weeks before the World Cup would begin.

    The World Cup

    On the verge of his greatest triumph, details were released to the press in early 1966 that Moore wanted to leave West Ham. Moore had let his contract slip to termination, and only after the intervention of Sir Alf Ramsey and realisation he was technically ineligible to play, did he re-sign with West Ham to allow him to captain the England team of 1966. Ramsey had summoned West Ham manager Ron Greenwood to England’s hotel and told the two of them to resolve their differences and get a contract signed up. Moore was the leader of the World Cup winning side and established himself as a world-class player and sporting icon. With all their games at Wembley, England had got through their group with little trouble, they then beat Argentina in a controversial quarter final and a Eusébio-led Portugal team in the semis, a match also surrounded by controversy. West Germany awaited in the final.

    According to Geoff Hurst’s autobiography,  England full back George Cohen overheard Ramsey talking to his coaching staff about the possibility of dropping Moore for the final and deploying the more battle-hardened Norman Hunter in his place. However, eventually they settled on keeping the captain in the team. Moore had not been playing badly, nor had he given the impression that he had been distracted by his contract dispute prior to the competition. The only possible explanations were that the Germans had some rather fast attacking players, which could expose Moore’s own lack of pace, and that Hunter – who was of a similar age to Moore but only had four caps – was the club partner of Moore’s co-defender with England, Jack Charlton.

    In the final, England went 0–1 down through Helmut Haller, but Moore’s awareness and quick-thinking helped England to a swift equaliser. He was fouled by Wolfgang Overath midway inside the German half and, rather than remonstrate or head back into defence, he picked himself up quickly while looking ahead and delivered an instant free kick on to Hurst’s head, in a movement practised at West Ham. Hurst scored.

    The West Ham connection to England’s biggest day became stronger when Peters scored to take England 2–1 up, but the Germans equalised in the final minute of normal time through Wolfgang Weber – as Moore appealed unsuccessfully for a handball decision – to take the match into extra time.

    Ramsey was convinced the Germans were exhausted, and after Hurst scored a controversial and heavily debated goal, the game looked over. With seconds remaining, and England under the pressure of another German attack, the ball broke to Moore on the edge of his own penalty area. Team-mates shouted at Moore to just get rid of the ball, but he calmly picked out the feet of Hurst 40 yards (40 m) upfield, who scored to bring the score to 4-2.

    Of many memorable images from that day, one is of Moore wiping his hands clean of mud and sweat on the velvet tablecloth before shaking the hand of Queen Elizabeth II as she presented him with the Jules Rimet trophy.

    Moore as icon

    Moore became a national icon as a consequence of England’s success, with him and the other two West Ham players taking the World Cup around the grounds which West Ham visited during the following domestic season. He was awarded the coveted BBC Sports Personality of the Year title at the end of 1966, the first footballer to do so, and remaining the only one for a further 24 years. He was also decorated with the OBE in the New Year Honours List.

    Moore’s image and popularity allowed him to start a number of business ventures, including a sports shop next to West Ham’s ground at Upton Park, and he also appeared with his wife Tina, along with Peters and his wife Kathy, in a television advertisement for the pub industry, urging people to “Look in at the local”.

    He continued to play for West Ham and England, earning his 50th cap in a 5–1 win over Wales at the end of 1966 in a Home International match which also doubled up as a qualifier for the 1968 European Championships. England ultimately reached the semi-finals (the tournament was just a four-team event) where they played Yugoslavia in Florence and lost 1–0. England, as champions, did not have to qualify for the next World Cup, and Moore remained the first name on Ramsey’s team sheet, winning his 78th cap prior to the squad’s flight to South America for a short period of altitude-acclimatisation, before going on to the finals in Mexico.

    1970

    The year 1970 was a bittersweet, mixed and eventful one for Moore. He was again named as captain for the 1970 World Cup but there was heavy disruption to preparations when an attempt was made to implicate Moore in the theft of a bracelet from a jeweller in Bogotá, Colombia, where England were involved in a warm-up game. A young assistant had claimed that Moore had removed the bracelet from the hotel shop without paying for it. There was no doubt that Moore was in the shop – he had gone in with Bobby Charlton to look for a gift for Charlton’s wife, Norma – the accusation was not proved. Moore was arrested and then released, he then travelled with the England team to play another match against Ecuador in Quito. He played, winning his 80th cap, and England were 2–0 victors, but when the team plane stopped back in Colombia on the return to Mexico, Moore was detained and placed under four days of house arrest. Diplomatic pressure, plus the obvious weakness of the evidence, eventually saw the case dropped entirely, and an exonerated Moore returned to Mexico to rejoin the squad and prepare for the World Cup.

    Moore went on to play a leading role in England’s progress through their group. In the second game against favourites Brazil, there was a defining moment for Moore when he tackled Jairzinho with such precision and cleanliness that many[who?] cite it as a tackle which no-one will ever improve upon. It continues to be shown frequently on television[citation needed]. Brazil still won the game 1–0, but England progressed through the group. Moore swapped shirts with Pelé after the game. The shirt is now on display in a virtual reality museum called the Priory Collection.

    Defeat after extra time against West Germany saw England eliminated in the last eight, and it would be 12 years before England were to return to a World Cup finals again.

    Final years at the top

    On 10 August 1970 Bobby Moore received an anonymous threat to kidnap his wife and hold her to a £10,000 ransom. This caused him to pull out of pre-season friendlies against Bristol City and Bournemouth. However, his services to West Ham were rewarded with a testimonial match against Celtic at the end of 1970. However, although he was seen as an icon and a perfect influence on the game, Moore was not without his faults or controversies. On 7 January 1971, he and three West Ham team-mates, Jimmy Greaves, Brian Dear and Clyde Best, were all fined by West Ham manager Greenwood after going out drinking in a nightclub until the early hours of the morning prior to an FA Cup third round tie against Blackpool. The nightclub in Blackpool was owned by Moore’s friend, boxer Brian London. West Ham lost the tie 4–0. They were all fined a week’s wages. Blackpool were the bottom of Division one at the time, and were relegated at the end of the season. Coincidentally, Moore was featured on TV as the subject on This Is Your Life the night before. It was not uncommon for Moore to drink heavily, but he was often seen in the gym or on the pitch at West Ham on a Sunday morning, usually the players’ day off, working off the alcohol he had consumed the night before. 

    On 5 January 1971, when still only 29, he became the first active footballer to appear on the TV guest show This Is Your Life.[4]

    Moore surpassed West Ham’s appearances record in 1973 when he played for the club for the 509th time. Three days earlier, on Valentine’s Day 1973, he won his 100th cap for England in a comprehensive 5–0 win over Scotland at Hampden Park. By this stage, only Peters and Alan Ball from the 1966 squad were also still involved with the England team; the rest had either retired or dropped by Ramsey, even though a number of them were younger than Moore.

    Later the same year, Moore was exposed defensively by Poland in a qualifier for the 1974 World Cup in Chorzów, deflecting a free kick past Peter Shilton to put the home side ahead, and then losing possession to Wlodzimierz Lubanski, who scored the second. His form had dipped enough for Ramsey to choose not to select him for the return game at Wembley, which England had to win to qualify. Any other result would send Poland through. Moore is understood to have asked Ramsey if this meant he was no longer required, to which Ramsey replied: “Of course not. I need you as my captain at the World Cup next year.” It never happened, as England could only draw 1–1. It signalled the end of Ramsey’s reign – he was sacked six months later – and Moore later told how he sat alongside Ramsey on the bench and kept urging him to make a substitution, only for Ramsey to freeze suddenly[vague] when it came to decision-making. When Kevin Hector finally did come on for Martin Chivers after 85 minutes Moore could be seen on TV yanking down Hector’s tracksuit bottoms while Ramsey sat immobile. Moore, later, said to David Miller “you could feel the minutes escaping. I said to Alf we need someone to go through the middle. He just nodded. We couldn’t get Kevin out there quick enough. We almost threw him onto the pitch.” 

    Moore won his 108th and final cap in the next game, a 1–0 friendly defeat to Italy on 14 November 1973. He became England’s most capped player, beating Bobby Charlton’s record by two appearances, and equalled Billy Wright‘s record of 90 appearances as captain. Peter Shilton and David Beckham have since overtaken the caps record, but the joint captaincy record remains.

    After West Ham and England

    Moore played his last game for West Ham in an FA Cup tie against Hereford United in January 1974. He was injured in the match. On March 14 the same year, he was allowed to leave West Ham after more than 15 years, taking with him the club record for appearances (since overtaken by Billy Bonds) and the most international caps for an outfield player (since overtaken by David Beckham).

    He joined London rivals Fulham, who were in the Second Division, for £25,000. During Moore’s first season there they defeated West Ham in a League Cup tie and then reached the FA Cup Final where they faced West Ham again. This time Fulham lost the game, 2–0, and Moore had made his final appearance at Wembley as a professional player.

    Moore played his final professional game in England for Fulham on 14 May 1977 against Blackburn Rovers. He played for two teams in the North American Soccer LeagueSan Antonio Thunder in 1976 (24 games, 1 goal) and Seattle Sounders in 1978 (7 games). During 1976, there was also a final appearance on the international field for Team USA in games against Italy, Brazil and an England team captained by Gerry Francis. This was the U.S.A. Bicentennial Cup Tournament, which capitalized on NASL and more importantly England and Italy both failing to qualify for the European Championships that year. In April 1978 he signed his very last contract as a professional player, when he joined Danish side Herning Fremad to promote Danish football’s new transition to professional football, playing 9 games for the club before he retired.[5]

    After football

    Moore retired from playing professionally in 1978, and had a short relatively unsuccessful spell in football management at Eastern AA in Hong Kong, Oxford City and Southend United.

    He became manager of Southend United in 1984. In his first full season, 1984–85, Southend narrowly avoided having to apply for re-election to the Football League amidst severe financial difficulties. However, the side was gradually rebuilt and in the 1985–86 season Southend started well and were in the promotion race until the new year before eventually finishing 9th. His successor, David Webb built upon those foundations to win promotion the following year.

    His life after football was eventful and difficult, with poor business dealings and his marriage ending. Many[who?] saw Moore’s acceptance of a role as a columnist for the salacious tabloid newspaper, the Sunday Sport, as a sign of how low he had been forced to go. Moore’s supporters said that the Football Association could have given a role to Moore, as the only Englishman to captain a FIFA World Cup winning team. Moore himself kept a dignified silence.

    Moore joined London radio station Capital Gold as a football analyst and commentator in 1990. Moore married 42-year-old Stephanie Parlane-Moore (her real maiden name) on 4 December 1991. He had a son and a daughter from his first marriage, to Christina (Tina) Dean. They were married from 1962 until divorcing in 1986.

    Death

    Tributes to Bobby Moore outside the Boleyn Ground on 6 March 1993

    In April 1991, Moore underwent an emergency operation for suspected colon cancer, though at the time it was just reported that he had undergone an “emergency stomach operation”.

    On 14 February 1993, he publicly announced he was suffering from bowel cancer. Three days later, he commentated on an England match against San Marino at Wembley, alongside his friend Jonathan Pearce. That was to be his final public appearance; seven days later on 24 February, at 6.36 am, he died at the age of 51.

    He was the first member of the England World Cup winning side to die, the second being Alan Ball 14 years later. Moore was also outlived by the manager of the side, Alf Ramsey, who died six years after him.

    Bobby Moore’s funeral was held on 2 March 1993 at Putney Vale Crematorium, and his ashes were buried in a plot with his father Robert Edward Moore (who died in 1978) and his mother Doris Joyce Moore, who had only died the previous year.[6]

    The first West Ham home game after his death was on 6 March 1993, against Wolverhampton Wanderers. The Boleyn Ground was awash with floral tributes, scarfs and other football memorabilia from both West Ham fans and those of other clubs. Fellow 1966 World Cup winners, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters placed a floral replica of a West Ham shirt, showing Moore’s number, ‘6’, on the back, on the centre spot before the game. West Ham ‘rested’ the number six shirt with the regular number six, Ian Bishop, wearing number twelve. The game was won by West Ham 3–1 with goals by Steve Bull for Wolves and Trevor Morley, Julian Dicks and Matty Holmes for West Ham.[7]

    His former England team-mate, Jack Charlton, on a BBC documentary of Moore’s life in and outside of football,[8] said of Moore’s death:

    “Well, I only ever cried over two people, Billy Bremner and Bob… [long pause] He was a lovely man.”

    On 28 June 1993 his memorial service was held in Westminster Abbey, attended by all the other members of the 1966 World Cup Team. He was only the second sportsman to be so honoured, the first being the West Indian cricketer Sir Frank Worrell.

    For many years he delighted supporters of West Ham and was a formidable opponent in the eyes of those against whom he played. But it is for his appearances for England — ninety of them as captain — that he will be chiefly remembered, and supremely for his captaincy of the World Cup team of 1966.[9]

    Legacy

    Sports Heritage Blue Plaque commemorating Bobby Moore at West Ham’s Boleyn Ground

    The charity Cancer Research UK(CRUK) set up the Bobby Moore Fund to raise money for bowel cancer research in his memory: the Run for Moore races raise funds for this.

    The funds were spent on high-quality bowel cancer research to be carried out by leading scientists across the UK. The money raised funded 17 Bobby Moore Research Fellowships, a new bowel cancer laboratory at St Mark’s Hospital in London (subsequently closed by CRUK on 1 October 2006) and 3 additional research projects[citation needed].

    Bust of Bobby Moore in the entrance foyer of the stand bearing his name at West Ham’s Boleyn Ground

    In 1996, comedians Frank Skinner and David Baddiel used the line, “But I still see that tackle by Moore” in the lyrics to their song Three Lions, which the England team’s official song at the 1996 European Championships, which was adopted by fans rather than the tournament’s official song We’re In This Together by Simply Red. It referred to the famous incident with Jairzinho in 1970, and was re-created by Baddiel, Skinner and England left back Stuart Pearce for the video. It was written in the context of a list of great England moments of the past as proof that England could win a tournament again.

    Moore was made an Inaugural Inductee of the English Football Hall of Fame in 2002 in recognition of his impact on the English game as player.

    The stand replacing the south bank at West Ham’s ground, the Boleyn Ground in Upton Park, was named the Bobby Moore Stand shortly after Moore’s death. There is also a statue close to the ground based on a famous photograph taken at Wembley after the World Cup celebrations, with Moore being held aloft, holding the trophy, by club team-mates and final goalscorers Hurst and Peters, along with Everton and England left back Ray Wilson.

    In November 2003, to celebrate UEFA‘s Jubilee, he was selected as the Golden Player of England by The Football Association as their most outstanding player of the past 50 years.[10]

    A statue of Moore outside Wembley Stadium.

    A bronze statue of Bobby Moore was erected outside the main entrance at the new Wembley Stadium in May 2007, to pay tribute to his effect on the game.[11]

    In August 2008 West Ham United officially retired the number 6 shirt as a mark of respect 15 years after his death.[12]

    In September 2008, members of two West Ham United online forums (WHO and KUMB) pulled together to urge the club to sponsor The Bobby Moore Fund on their shirts. The request was made following the collapse of West Ham United’s main shirt sponsor, XL, the UK’s third largest holiday company.[13] Although the club gained a new main sponsor in the form of SBOBET, the youth teams and children’s replica kit feature the logo of the Bobby Moore Fund.

    Hendrik Johannes Cruijff (Dutch pronunciation:[joɑn krœyf] About this sound pronunciation (help·info)); born 25 April 1947 in Amsterdam), known as Johan Cruyff, is a retired Dutch footballer and is currently the manager of the Catalan national team. He won the Ballon d’Or three times, in 1971, 1973 and 1974, which is a record jointly held with Michel Platini and Marco van Basten. Cruyff was one of the most famous exponents of the football philosophy known as Total Football explored by Rinus Michels, and is widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time.

    After his retirement from playing in 1984, Cruyff became highly successful as manager of Ajax and later Barcelona; he remains an influential advisor to both clubs. His son Jordi has also gone on to play football professionally.

    In 1999, Cruyff was voted European Player of the Century in an election held by the IFFHS, and came second behind Pelé in their World Player of the Century poll.[1] He came third in a vote organised by the French weekly magazine France Football consulting their former Ballon d’Or winners to elect their Football Player of the Century.[2]

     Style of play

    Through his career, Cruyff became synonymous with the playing style of “Total Football“.[3] It is a system where a player who moves out of his position is replaced by another from his team, thus allowing the team to retain their intended organizational structure. In this fluid system no footballer is fixed in their intended outfield role; anyone can be successively an attacker, a midfielder and a defender. The style was honed by Ajax coach Rinus Michels around the time Cruyff came to prominence.

    Strictly speaking, Cruyff played centre forward in this system. But he would drop deep to confuse his markers or suddenly move to the wing with devastating effect. No one had seen a centre forward like that before. Due to the way Cruyff played his game, he is still referred to as “the total footballer.”[4]

    Cruyff was known for his technical ability, speed, acceleration and dribbling but his greatest quality was vision, based on an acute sense of his team-mates’ positions as an attack unfolded. The sports writer David Miller believed Cruyff superior to any previous player in his ability to extract the most from others. He dubbed him “Pythagoras in boots” for the complexity and precision of his angled passes and wrote: “Few have been able to exact, both physically and mentally, such mesmeric control on a match from one penalty area to another.”[5]

    Cruyff also perfected a move now known as the “Cruyff Turn.” To do this move, Cruyff would look to pass or cross the ball. However, instead of kicking it, he would drag the ball behind his planted foot with the inside of his other foot and turn through 180 degrees and accelerate away outside a defender.

     Club career

    Cruyff played for Ajax, Barcelona, Los Angeles Aztecs, Washington Diplomats, Levante, and Feyenoord during his career.

     Ajax

    Cruyff joined Ajax youth system on his 10th birthday. He made his first team debut on 15 November 1964 in the Eredivisie, against GVAV, scoring the only goal for Ajax in a 3–1 defeat. That year Ajax finished in their lowest position since the establishment of professional football, 13th.[6] Cruyff really started to make an impression in the 1965–66 season. Cruyff established himself as a regular first team player after scoring two goals against Door Wilskracht Sterk in the Olympic stadion on 24 October 1965 (in a 2–0 victory). In the seven games that winter he scored eight times and in March 1966, he scored the first three goals in a league game against Telstar (6–2 win). Four days later, in a cup game against Veendam (7–0 win), he scored four goals. In total that season, Cruyff scored 25 goals in 23 games, and Ajax won the league championship.

    In the 1966–67 season, Ajax again won the league championship, but also won the KNVB Cup, for Cruyff’s first “double.” Cruyff ended the season as the leading goalscorer in the Eredivisie with 33.

    Cruyff won the league for the third successive year in the 1967–68 season. He was also named Dutch footballer of the year for the second successive time, a feat he would repeat in 1969. On 28 May 1969, Cruyff played in his first European Cup final against Milan, but the Italian team ended up winning 4–1.

    In the 1969–70 season, Cruyff won his second league and cup “double,” but at the beginning of the 1970–71 season, Cruyff suffered a long-term groin injury. He made his comeback on 30 October 1970 against PSV. In this game, he did not wear his usual number 9, which was in use by Gerrie Mühren, but instead used number 14. Ajax won 1–0. Although it was very uncommon in those days for the starters of a game not to play with numbers 1 to 11, from that moment onwards, Cruyff’s number was 14, even using the number with the Dutch national team.[7] There has even been a documentary on Cruyff titled Nummer 14 Johan Cruyff[8] and in his native Holland there is a magazine by Voetbal International titled “Nummer 14”.[9]

    In a league game against AZ ’67 on 29 November 1970, Cruyff scored no less than six goals in an 8–1 victory. After winning a replayed KNVB Cup final against Sparta Rotterdam by a score of 2–1, Ajax won in Europe for the first time. On 2 June 1971, in London, Ajax won the European Cup by defeating Panathinaikos 2–0. In spite of speculation that Cruyff would move to another club (Feyenoord and Barcelona were interested) on 12 July 1971, he signed a seven-year contract at Ajax. At the end of the season, he became not only the Dutch, but also the European Footballer of the Year for 1971.

    1972 was a particular successful year for Ajax and Cruyff. Ajax won a second European Cup, beating Internazionale 2–0 in the final, with Cruyff scoring both goals. This victory prompted Dutch newspapers to announce the demise of the Italian style of defensive football in the face of Total Football. Soccer: The Ultimate Encyclopaedia says: “Single-handed, Cruyff not only pulled Internazionale of Italy apart in the 1972 European Cup Final, but scored both goals in Ajax’s 2–0 win.” Cruyff also scored in the 3–2 victory over ADO Den Haag in the KNVB Cup final. In the league, Cruyff was the top scorer with 25 goals as Ajax became champions. In the autumn, Ajax won the Intercontinental Cup, beating Argentina’s Independiente (1–1 and 3–0) and then in January 1973, they won the European Super Cup by beating Rangers 3–1 away and 3–2 in Amsterdam. Curiously, Cruyff’s only own goal came on 20 August 1972 against FC Amsterdam. A week later, against Go Ahead Eagles (6–0), Cruyff scored four times for Ajax. The 1972–73 season was concluded with the another league championship victory and a third successive Europe Cup (Ajax — Juventus 1–0).

    In the summer of 1973, Cruyff was sold to Barcelona for 6 million guilder (approx. US$ 2 million, c. 1973). On 19 August 1973, he played his last match for Ajax (Ajax — Amsterdam 6–1), the 2nd match of the 1973–74 season.

     Barcelona

    At Barcelona, Cruyff quickly won over the Barça fans when he told the European press he chose Barça over Real Madrid because he could not play for a club associated with the Spanish dictator Francisco Franco. He further endeared himself when he chose a Catalan name Jordi for his son. He helped the club win La Liga for the first time since 1960, along the way defeating Real Madrid 5–0 at their home of Bernabéu. He was also crowned European Footballer of the Year.

    During his time at Barcelona, Cruyff scored one of his most famous goals, The ‘Phantom’ Goal.[10] In a game against Atlético Madrid, Cruyff leapt into the air, twisted his body so he was facing away from the goal, and kicked the ball past Miguel Reina in the Atlético Madrid goal with his right heel (the ball was at about neck height and had already travelled wide of the far post). The goal was featured in the documentary En un momento dado, in which fans of Cruyff attempted to recreate that moment. The goal has been dubbed Le but impossible de Cruyff (Cruyff’s impossible goal).[citation needed]

    Note that Cruyff played two games with Paris Saint-Germain in 1975 during the Paris tournament. He had only agreed because he was a fan of designer Daniel Hechter, who was then president of PSG.[11]

     United States

    At the age of 32, he signed a lucrative deal with the Los Angeles Aztecs of the North American Soccer League (NASL). He had previously been rumored to be joining the New York Cosmos but the deal did not materialize. However, he did play exhibition games for the Cosmos. He stayed at the Aztecs for only one season, but was voted NASL Player of the Year in that time. The following season, he moved to play for the Washington Diplomats. He played the whole 1980 campaign for the Diplomats, even as the team was facing dire financial trouble at the time. In May 1981, Cruyff played as a guest player for Milan in a tournament, but was injured. As a result, he missed the beginning of the 1981 NASL soccer season thereafter, which ultimately led to Cruyff choosing to leave the team.

     Levante

    In January 1981, Cruyff played three friendly matches for DS’79 from Dordrecht. Also in January 1981, manager Jock Wallace of English club Leicester City made an audacious attempt to sign Cruyff. Despite negotiations lasting three weeks, in which Cruyff expressed his desire to play for the club, a deal could not be reached as he instead chose to sign with Spanish Segunda Division side Levante.[12] In March 1981, Cruyff took the field for the first time for Levante. Injuries and disagreements with the administration of the club would blight his spell in the Segunda Division, as he was only able to amount 10 appearances after his signing, scoring two goals. Having failed to secure promotion to the first division, Levante did not keep the financial agreements that were specified in Cruyff’s contract.

     Back in the Netherlands

    After his spell in the USA and a short-lived stay at UD Levante in Spain, Cruyff returned to play in his homeland, rejoining Ajax on 30 November 1980 as “technical advisor” of trainer Leo Beenhakker, Ajax being 8th in the ranking of the table of the Dutch League then after 13 games. Ajax would finish 2nd in 1980–81 in June 1981 after 34 games. In December 1981, Cruyff signed a new contract as player for Ajax. His already since November 1980 expected return was on 6 December 1981 against Haarlem (4–1 home win), Cruyff scored the first goal. In the 1981–82 and 1982–83 seasons, Ajax, along with Cruyff, became league champions. In the 1982–83 season, Ajax also won the Dutch Cup (KNVB-Beker). One notable incident from this era was a famous goal he scored against Helmond Sport in 1982 while playing for Ajax. Cruyff scored a penalty the same way Rik Coppens had already done it 25 years earlier.[13][14][15] He put the ball down as for a routine penalty kick, but instead of shooting at goal, Cruyff nudged the ball sideways to his Ajax teammate Jesper Olsen who in return passed it back to Cruyff who tapped the ball into the empty net, as Otto Versfeld, the bemused Helmond goalkeeper, looked on.

     Feyenoord

    At the end of the 1982–83 season, Ajax decided not to offer Cruyff a new contract. This angered Cruyff, who responded by signing for Ajax’s archrivals Feyenoord.[16] Cruyff’s season at Feyenoord was a successful one in which the club won the Eredivisie for the first time in a decade, part of a league and KNVB Cup double. He ended his Eredivisie playing career on May 13, 1984 with a goal against PEC Zwolle. In his last season as a player, he was voted footballer of the year. Cruyff played his last game in Saudi Arabia, bringing Feyenoord back into the game with a goal and an assist.[17]

    As a Dutch international, Cruyff played 48 matches, scoring 33 goals. In his second Dutch national team match, a friendly against Czechoslovakia, Cruyff was the first Dutch international to receive a red card. He received a one-year suspension from the Royal Dutch Football Association.

    Accusations of Cruyff’s “aloofness” were not rebuffed by his habit of wearing a shirt with only two black stripes along the sleeves, as opposed to Adidas‘ usual design feature of three, worn by all the other Dutch players. Cruyff, however, had a separate sponsorship deal with Puma.[citation needed]

    Cruyff led the Netherlands to a runners-up medal in the 1974 World Cup and was named the player of the tournament. Thanks to his team’s mastery of Total Football, they coasted all the way to the final, knocking out Argentina (4–0), East Germany (2–0), and Brazil (2–0) along the way. Cruyff himself scored twice against Argentina in one of his team’s most dominating performances, then he scored the second goal against Brazil to knock out the defending champions. The Netherlands faced hosts West Germany in the final. Cruyff kicked off and the ball was passed around the Oranje team 13 times before returning to Cruyff, who then went on a rush that eluded Berti Vogts and ended when he was fouled by Uli Hoeneß inside the box. Teammate Johan Neeskens scored from the spot kick to give the Netherlands a 1–0 lead, and the Germans had not even touched the ball. Only during the latter half of the final was his playmaking influence stifled by the effective marking of Berti Vogts, while Franz Beckenbauer, Uli Hoeneß, and Wolfgang Overath dominated the midfield, enabling West Germany to win 2–1.[18] Cruyff received a yellow card during half time for talking to the referee.

    Cruyff retired from international football in October 1977, having helped the national team qualify for the upcoming World Cup. Without him, the Netherlands finished runners-up in the World Cup again. Initially the reason given for missing the 1978 World Cup were political reasons given a military dictatorship was in power in Argentina at that time. In 2008, however, Cruyff stated to the journalist Antoni Bassas in Catalunya Ràdio that he and his family were involved in a kidnap attempt in Barcelona a year before the tournament, and that this had caused his retirement. “To play a World Cup you have to be 200% okay, there are moments when there are other values in life.”[19]

    Managerial career

    Ajax

    After retiring from playing, Cruyff followed in the footsteps of his mentor Rinus Michels, coaching a young Ajax side to victory in the European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1987 (final: Ajax — Lokomotiv Leipzig 1–0; goal by Marco van Basten). In May and June 1985, Cruyff returned to Ajax again. In the 1985–86 season, the league title was lost to Guus Hiddink‘s PSV, despite Ajax having a goal difference of +85 (120 goals for, 35 goals against). In the 1985–86 and 1986–87 seasons, Ajax won the Dutch Cup (KNVB-Beker).

    It was during this period as manager that Cruyff was able to implement his favoured team formation—three mobile defenders; plus one more covering space – becoming, in effect, a defensive midfielder (from Rijkaard, Blind, Silooy, Verlaat, Larsson, Spelbos), two ‘controlling’ midfielders (from Rijkaard, Scholten, Winter, Wouters, Mühren, Witschge) with responsibilities to feed the attack-minded players, one second striker (Bosman, Scholten), two touchline-hugging wingers (from Bergkamp, van’t Schip, De Wit, Witschge) and one versatile centre forward (from van Basten, Meijer, Bosman). So successful was this system that Ajax won the Champions League in 1995 playing Cruyff’s system – a tribute to Cruyff’s legacy as Ajax coach. Terry Venables as England manager was an advocate of this system, based on free-flowing football and intelligent and incisive individuals carrying out seemingly simple functions, in the Euro 1996 semi-final versus Germany, England used this system effectively.[20]

    Barcelona

    In 1988, Cruyff returned to Barcelona as manager. At Barcelona, Cruyff brought in players such as Josep Guardiola, José Mari Bakero, Txiki Begiristain, Goikoetxea, Ronald Koeman, Michael Laudrup, Romário, Gheorghe Hagi, and Hristo Stoichkov. Under Cruyff, Barcelona won La Liga four times between 1991 and 1994, and beat Sampdoria in both the 1989 European Cup Winners’ Cup final and the 1992 European Cup final at Wembley. They also won a Copa del Rey in 1990, the European Super Cup in 1992 and three Supercopa de España.

    Cruyff used to smoke 20 cigarettes a day prior to undergoing double heart bypass surgery in 1991 while he was the coach of Barcelona, after which he gave up smoking. He also led the anti-smoking campaign developed by the Health Department of the Catalan autonomous government. Cruyff juggled a cigarette pack 16 times in an anti-tobacco video sponsored by the Catalan Department of Health.[21][22][23]

    With 11 trophies, Cruyff has been Barcelona’s most successful manager to date as he had more trophies to show for his tenure, as well as being the club’s longest serving manager. However, in his final two seasons, he failed to win any trophies, and fell out with chairman Josep Lluís Núñez; this resulted in his departure from the club, and he vowed never to coach again.

    While at Barcelona, he was in negotiations with the KNVB to manage the national team for the 1994 World Cup finals, but talks broke off at the last minute.[24]

    His open support helped candidate Joan Laporta to victory in Barcelona’s latest presidential elections. He continues to be an adviser for him, although he holds no official post at Barcelona.

    Johan Cruyff in 2009

    Known as a player’s coach with deep convictions with regard to his philosophy of the game, he is considered a visionary and his presence at Barcelona was said to have changed many things and this was the beginning of what is known as the “Dutch influence” at Barcelona.[25] The style of play Cruyff introduced at Barcelona came to be known as tiki-taka and was successfully adopted by the Euro 2008 and 2010 World Cup winning Spanish national team.[26]

    On 26 March 2010, Cruyff was named honorary president of Barcelona, in recognition of his contributions to the club as both a player and manager.[27] He was stripped of this title by new president Sandro Rosell in July 2010.[28][29]

    Proposed return to Ajax

    On 20 February 2008, in the wake of a major research on the ten-year-mismanagement, it was announced that Cruyff would be the new technical director at his boyhood club Ajax—this would be his fourth stint at the Amsterdam club.[30] However, Cruyff announced in March that he is pulling out of his planned return to Ajax because of “professional difference of opinion” between him and Ajax’s new manager, Marco van Basten. Van Basten said that Cruyff’s plans were “going too fast”, because he was “not so dissatisfied with how things are going now”.[31]

     Catalonia

    On 2 November 2009, Cruyff was named as manager of the Catalonia national team in place of Pere Gratacòs. It is his first managing job in thirteen years.[32]

    Statements

    In the Netherlands, and to some extent Spain, Cruyff is famous for his one-liners that usually hover between brilliant insight and the blatantly obvious. They are famous for their Amsterdam dialect and incorrect grammar, and often feature tautologies and paradoxes.[39] In Spain, his most famous statement is “En un momento dado.” The quote has been used for the title of a 2004 documentary about Cruyff’s life: Johan Cruijff – En un momento dado. In the Netherlands, his most famous one-liner is “Ieder nadeel heb z’n voordeel” (“Every disadvantage has its advantage”) and his way of expressing himself has been dubbed “Cruijffiaans.” Cruyff rarely limits himself to a single line though, and in a comparison with the equally oracular but reserved football manager Rinus Michels, Kees Fens equated Cruyff’s monologues to experimental proze, “without a subject, only an attempt to drop words in a sea of uncertainty (…) there is no full stop”.[39]

    Some of his most famous statements are:

    • “Voetbal is een spel van fouten. Wie de minste fouten maakt wint. (Football is a game of mistakes. The ones who make the least mistakes win.)”
    • “Je gaat het pas zien als je het door hebt. (You won’t get it until you understand it.)”
    • “Ieder nadeel heb z’n voordeel. (Every disadvantage has its advantage.)”
    • “Voordat ik een fout maak, maak ik die fout niet. (Before I make a mistake, I don’t make that mistake.)”
    • “Als je een speler ziet sprinten, is hij te laat vertrokken. (When you see a player sprinting, he left too late.)”
    • “Je moet schieten anders kan je niet scoren. (You’ve got to shoot or you can’t score.)”
    • “Italianen kennen niet van je winnen, maar je ken wel van ze verliezen. (Italians can’t defeat you but you can lose to them.)”
    • “Voetbal is simpel, maar het moeilijkste wat er is, is simpel voetballen. (Football is simple, but the hardest thing there is, is to play simple football.)”
    • “Je moet altijd zorgen dat je één doelpunt meer scoort als de tegenstander. (You always have to make sure that you score one goal more than your opponent.)”
    • “Je ken beter ten onder gaan met je eigen visie als met de visie van een ander. (It’s better to lose with your own vision than with someone else’s.)”
    • “Als wij de bal hebben, kennen zij niet scoren. (If we have the ball, they can’t score.)”
    • “Als ik iets eerder begin te lopen, dan lijk ik sneller. (If I start running a little earlier, I’ll seem faster.)”
    • “Als ik zou willen dat je het begreep, zou ik het wel beter uitleggen. (If I wanted you to understand, I would explain it better.)”
    • “Als ik thuiskom van een televisie-analyse, vraagt mijn vrouw: Wat heb je gezegd? Dan zeg ik: Al sla je me dood. (When I come home after a television-analysis, my wife asks: What did you say? Then I answer: I have no idea.)”
    • “Zonder de bal kun je niet winnen. (Without the ball you can’t win)”

    After the 2010 World Cup Spain vs. Netherlands Final, Cruyff had the courage to denounce his own country’s performance which the Dutch lost 1–0. English referee Howard Webb was forced to give 14 yellow cards and one red, as the game at times degenerated into something resembling a pub brawl. Cruyff said, “this ugly, vulgar, hard, hardly eye-catching, hardly football style – yes, it served the Dutch to unsettle Spain. If they got satisfaction from this then fine, but they ended up losing. The Netherlands were playing anti-football.”

    Trivia

    In November 2003, Cruyff invoked legal proceedings against the publisher Tirion Uitgevers, over its photo book Johan Cruyff de Ajacied (Johan Cruijff the Ajax player), which used photographs by Guus de Jong. Cruyff was working on another book, also using De Jong’s photographs, and claimed unsuccessfully that Tirion’s book violated his trademark and portrait rights.

    In 2004, Cruyff ended sixth place in the election of De Grootste Nederlander (The Greatest Dutchman).

    Cruyff had a small hit (No.21 in the charts) in the Netherlands with “Oei Oei Oei (Dat Was Me Weer een Loei).” Upon arriving in Barcelona, the Spanish branch of Polydor decided to release the single in Spain as well, where it was rather popular.[40]

    Family

    On 2 December 1968, Cruyff married Danny Coster. Johan and Danny have three children together: Chantal (16 November 1970), Susila (27 January 1972), and Jordi (9 February 1974). The family currently lives in Barcelona.

    His son Jordi has played for teams such as Barcelona (while father Johan was manager), Manchester United, and Alavés. Interestingly, the younger Cruyff sports “Jordi” on his shirt to distinguish himself from his famous father, which also reflects the common Spanish practice of referring to players by given names alone or by nicknames. It is also related to the commercial claim of “name and fame” of his father to the name Cruyff-Cruijff.
