Derived from Johan Cruyff's theory of having a soccer team full of midfielders, that can fulfill all roles on a soccer pitch. It relates in this sense to not specialising in your current group of friends and diversifying and incorporating more people into a circle of friends. Metaphorically speaking, no specialest just a big group of midfielders, that constantly expands and grows.
We are going to have a Total Football weekend, inviting a whole lot of different people with the hope of everyone getting along and becomming friends.
