Earlier this year football lost one of its best ever players when the great Johann Cruyff passed away. For a certain generation of football fans Cruyff represented the most sophisticated of modern, continental football. Fans of a certain vintage think of Cruyff as the apex of sophisticated, clever football first with the great Ajax teams of the 70s which dominated the European Cup as well as with Holland internationally and of course later with Barcelona.

In the latest issue of true faith, one of our longest standing and respected writers, Wallace Wilson delved back into a treasure trove of memories and has drafted this superb piece which captures the magic of the genius of the man from Amsterdam.

This weekend is the ideal time to get yourself into a nice quiet corner with a pot of tea and a bacon sarnie and treat yourself to a fantastic read and a bit more.
