    By request, here is a thread that folks can post their all time Oranje and Eredivisie top 11 teams. I expect that everyone will use a 4-3-3 formation since this is the iconic Dutch attacking setup. However, if you are not using this formation please make a notation. Also use separate postings for NT and Club 11s.

    Happy picking!!

    Interesting team. I've never seen Rep playing. Was he really better than Robben or Overmars??

    There were also other wingers who were highly regarded such as Resenbrink, Keizer, Moelijn, or Vanenburg.

    It was a tough call between Rep and Robben but Rep wins out as he played on both Oranje runner up teams in the 1970s. He was also a reliable scorer at every club he played for. Probably the toughest calls for me were Gullit and van Basten. They were great in 1988 on the Euro winning team and then epic failures two years later when they could only manage three draws in the group stage. A single win would have meant not facing Germany in the first game of the knock out round.

    My main doubt was playing Resenbrink on the left wing and placing Cruyff in Bergkamp's position. But I think Bergkamp was better than Resenbrink.

    R. Koeman is the only player who played and coached Ajax, PSV and Feyenoord so you can add him to all 3 squads as player/coach, but I feel his PSV performance is better than his other 2.

    For the NT its a 3-4-3 formation.
    Playing Total football style.

    Goal. van Beveren
    RB. Suurbier
    CB. Israël
    LB. Krol
    DM. Rijkaard
    LM. van Hanegem
    RM. Neeskens
    AM. Cruyff
    LW. Rensenbrink
    CF. van Basten
    RW. Gullit

    van Beveren was better then van der sar. Period. This is not open for discussion.
    Rensenbrink is in allthough not a pure winger but Cruyff liked to drift out to the left so he and Rensenbrink can change many times.
    Gullit not a pure winger but so multi talented that he can play there.
    Israël had just as good a pass as Koeman but was a much better defender also a good header of the bal.
    This Squad is filled with versatile intelligent players who can change position with eachother many times.
