Let's talk about the Dutch

I know they won the European Championship in 88, but why not anything else.

I remember the days they had kluivert, bergkamp, overmars, cocu, reizeger, the de boers, vand der sar, davids, ceedorf.

They seem to always have the players but never win anything. Even now with guys like huntelaar and van persie as forwards.

They made it to the 2010 WC Final, which was impressive...but the attacking players on that team can't get along at all right now. (See: Sneijder, Wesley and van Persie, Robin)

Also, they're pretty slow in the back and had to turn to a teenager in Euros this past summer to try and get something going.

For a country of their population, they are massive overachievers.

They all hate each other. There were reports of inter-squad problems at this year's Euros.
