Greats Of The Game | Johan Cruyff, Forward/Attacking Midfielder

Johan Cruyff won the Ballon d'Or three times, in 1971, 1973, and 1974. He was the most famous exponent of the football philosophy known as Total Football explored by Rinus Michels, and is widely regarded as one of the greatest players in football history. In the 1970s, Dutch football rose from near obscurity to become a powerhouse in the sport. Cruyff led the Netherlands to the final of the 1974 FIFA World Cup and received the Golden Ball as player of the tournament. At the 1974 finals, he executed a feint that subsequently was named after him, the “Cruyff Turn”, a move widely replicated in the modern game.

At club level, Cruyff started his career at Ajax, where he won eight Eredivisie titles, three European Cups and one Intercontinental Cup. In 1973, he moved to Barcelona for a world record transfer fee, winning La Liga in his first season and was named European Footballer of the Year. After retiring from playing in 1984, Cruyff became highly successful as manager of Ajax and later Barcelona; he remained an influential advisor to both clubs. His son Jordi also played football professionally.

In 1999, Cruyff was voted European Player of the Century in an election held by the International Federation of Football History & Statistics, and came second behind Pelé in their World Player of the Century poll. He came third in a vote organised by the French magazine France Football consulting their former Ballon d'Or winners to elect their Football Player of the Century. He was chosen on the World Team of the 20th Century in 1998, the FIFA World Cup Dream Team in 2002, and in 2004 was named in the FIFA 100 list of the world’s greatest living players.

Considered to be one of the most influential figures in football history, Cruyff’s style of play and his football philosophy has influenced managers and players, including Frank Rijkaard, Pep Guardiola, Michael Laudrup, Arsène Wenger, Eric Cantona and Xavi. Ajax and Barcelona are among the clubs that have developed youth academies based on Cruyff’s coaching methods.

robertdole  asked:

Why does it matter if people are playing Shroud incorrectly? Those players are all at the kitchen table, and are probably playing other things incorrectly as well. As soon as they show up to a tournament, they'll be corrected on Shroud (or whatever else they got wrong), say "oh", and continue on with their newfound rules knowledge.

There’s a cost every time a game fights player intuition. Sometimes you have to pay that cost, but the key to good game design is figuring how to do that as little as possible.

The cost of not switching from Shroud to Hexproof is simply too high a cost to pay for something that, in the big picture, is pretty minor.

One last thing, when we poll the players about keywords, Hexproof scores decently high. Most players like “Don’t mess with my creature”.

The poll for console players

Alright cause strawpoll is being weird with me and not letting me make my poll, here is how this weeks choice for what patheon i will play will work out. The two i picked are based on two things one being a person gave me the idea and the other is because that person’s blog god persona is based in this patheon.

The first choice is the one and only greek patheon!!! @lyreical-dork since you helped give me this idea i decided you will be the champion of this one and in charge of making sure it wins and the one who gets to pick my god. Every reblog gives the greek patheon a chance to win

And the second option but it is no sleeper is the mighty roman patheon!!! @off-with-there-heads you are the champion of this powerful patheon and will decide what god i play if it wins. Every like gives this patheon a chance to win!

This poll will end friday morning and the video will be posted saturday with a new poll on sunday. So everyone have fun and vote which cham… i mean patheon is the best!


Greats Of The Game - Marco van Basten, Forward

Regarded as one of the greatest European forwards of all time and has scored 300 goals in a high-profile career, but played his last game in 1993 at the age of 28 due to an injury that forced his retirement two years later. He was later the head coach of Ajax and the Netherlands national team.

Playing for the Netherlands, Van Basten won, and was named player of the tournament, at UEFA Euro 1988, scoring five goals that included a memorable volley in the final against the Soviet Union. At the club level, he won three Eredivisie titles and the Cup Winners’ Cup with Ajax, and three Serie A titles and two European Cups with Milan.

Known for his close ball control, attacking intelligence and spectacular strikes and volleys, Van Basten was named FIFA World Player of the Year in 1992 and won the Ballon d'Or three times, in 1988, 1989 and 1992. In 1999, he was ranked sixth in the FIFA Player of the Century internet poll, tenth in the European player of the Century election held by the IFFHS and 12th in the IFFHS’ World Player of the Century election. He was also voted eighth in a poll organised by the French magazine France Football, consulting their former Ballon d'Or winners to elect the Football Player of the Century. In 2004, he was named by Pelé in the FIFA 100 list of the world’s greatest living players. In 2004, a poll for the 100 greatest Dutch people was held in the Netherlands: Van Basten ranked number 25, the second highest for a football player, behind Johan Cruyff. In 2007, Sky Sports ranked Van Basten first on its list of great athletes who had their careers cut short.

Hey guys! A few things today:

We have noticed that some dramatic plots are being done without our approval. That is not allowed and doing a dramatic plot without our approval will end in a strike. If you are interested in making a dramatic plot, pregnancy plot, dramatic pregnancy plot, miscarriage, hospital or even a dramatic plot with the kids (injuries and sickness which would lead to them going to the hospital) please message us first before going through with it. Once again, doing it without our approval equals to a strike. If you’re not sure if a plot is considered dramatic, don’t hesitate to message us and ask, we’re here to help! Not to mention, it’s always good to be safe.

We also ask our members to message us with wedding dates, party dates and even the date of the start-end of their pregnancy plot. We have a schedule in our drafts which contains the dates of every plot and parties taking place in the roleplay, and as you guys can understand, we don’t want anyone’s reserved date to be overstepped by another role player. 

The polls for the awards are open, in case you missed the announcement. Make sure to cast your vote until August 4th at midnight EST!

We’re currently working on some upcoming events for the roleplay and we wanted to ask for your help! If you happen to have any idea for a fun event, don’t be afraid to message us about it. We love hearing your ideas and would love to use them in our future events!

That’s all for now! Thank you for reading and if you happen to have any  questions, concerns, suggestions, please message us off anon!

Like this post once you’ve read it, thank you!
