The Dutch national team of the 70s invented 'total football' and, more recently, Ruud Gullit brought what he called 'sexy football' to the Premier League.
For many years we have admired the Holland approach to the beautiful game – and that is exactly what Martin Jol hopes to bring to Fulham.
The new Cottagers boss is steeped in the history and tradition of Dutch football, and is keen to put his own personal stamp on his Fulham side – as he did with Spurs, albeit briefly.
"Fulham last year conceded less goals than most other teams, so defensively it was sound but they needed another side, some quality to make the difference," he said.
"Bobby Zamora, for example, can do that and hopefully we can develop something where we can get one or two players who have extra quality.
"I think this team did marvellous last season," he continued. "They play in a certain style. I will try to play nice attacking football for the crowds because you play for the supporters.
"I like the team as it is, they are capable of playing good football. You will see in the next couple of months what we will try to change."
