Something in the water

FIFA's list of the top 100 living footballers is out today. For me the things that stand out are

The fact that there aren't very many Englishmen on there
The fact that there are an awful lot of Dutchmen on the list

I mean allowing for the Netherlands tiny population they've been more successful at turning out footballing genius' than any other nation in the world. I mean Brazil, Germany and Italy all have more players on the list, but they're all at least three times the size of Holland.

So either its something in the water, or all these football parks in the middle of town are making a difference.
