Tiny Holland renowned for producing their masters were in town last night to give their English apprentices a few lessons in how to become masters.
Although the Dutch masters left a lot of their "wizadry" at home, it was still enough to give their pupils a lesson or two in painting a successful picture which could eventually become quite worthwhile. Orchestrated by Mijnheer Van Bommel and his sturdy defenders of the "Oranje Nassau" school of perfection they created scenarios, shadows, fleeting movements of brilliance which left their English pupils with knots in their brushes.
One particular Dutch Master, Mijnheer Robben (once rejected from that infamous school of perfection, Chelsea) painted beautiful pictures all over the green, empty spaces of Wembley and left little white dots of ineptitude in his elegant wake. He produced several master strokes which left his apprentices in awe of such beauty.
As time went on the Dutch masters, superior in their strokes, fell asleep, and then the English team filled with browsing, talented youth caught them napping.
But ultimately quality will always rise above muscle and brawn. The superior master Robben produced a stroke of genius to prove to the world that the English apprentices have woefully much to learn and their woeful mentor should pay a visit to the Dutch school of excellency!
Only the Spanish and German classic masters can paint prettier pictures than the Dutch, but that's a different subject which will be taught in the Ukraine and Poland in summer, book now for a unique semester showdown!
