    LOL, Ajax avoids the Group of Death and PSV land smack into it. Tough draw for Eindhoven; we will see what kind of trainer van Bommel is.

    Ajax - AEK = direct confrontation between two frontrunners for 11th place/direct CLGS spot. AEK had the lowest coefficient and they don't seem as shady as Olympiacos (probably because they simply lack the funds for bribes).

    Ajax have faced Bayern four times in CL football. The two times that they defeated the German club they won the title. Only once did they meet in Group play with the result of a loss and a draw. Ajax can win this group!

    BD, the answer to your question is so obvious, that I doubt O14 will bother answering it. :)

    I know. I just wanna hear him say it ;)
     
  11. Where do we have Dutch players abroad in the CL/EL in this season?
    CL
    De Vrij at Inter.
    Van Dijk & Wijnaldum at Liverpool
    Depay at Lyon
     
  12. From the clubs in pot 3 Schalke 04 hit the jackpot. By far the weakest group they are in.

    Donk at Galatasary
    Bazoer on his way to Porto (if rumor is true)
     
  14. CL:
    not all will be playing I guess.

    Bayern München: Arjen Robben
    Manchester City: Philippe Sandler
    Manchester United: Tahith Chong
    Tottenham Hotspur: Michel Vorm en Vincent Janssen
    AS Roma: Justin Kluivert, Rick Karsdorp
    Liverpool: Virgil van Dijk, Georginio Wijnaldum
    Olympique Lyon: Memphis Depay, Kenny Tete
    Club Brugge: Stefano Denswil, Ruud Vormer, Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld
    Galatasaray: Ryan Donk
    Internazionale: Stefan de Vrij
    Hoffenheim: Justin Hoogma, Joshua Brenet
    Rode Ster Belgrado: Lorenzo Ebecilio

    Edit: Josh Zirkzee at Bayern, but probably not in the line up for the first team

  16. If I was van Bommel I would play 5-3-2 and rely on the counter attack with Lozano and Bergwijn at full speed.
    He has his father in law as a whisperer, so full WC 2010 tactics are possible.

    He has played well so far this season. I think I am partially vindicated in that no other team in Europe appears to want him.
     
  18. Got the feeling we're gonna have a surprising CL season this time with some upsets in several groups.
    @Brilliant Dutch set your bets accordingly.
    After the final i'll give you my bank account number for generous thank you donation:cool:

  20. I'm sure most pot 1 and pot 2 clubs werenot happy with Liverpool being in pot 3, as this ment either of them could end in a group with the best defender and the best striker club of last CL season.
    I'm sure they all in pot 1 thought "shit, we can't draw Loco and instead we can draw Liverpool...shit...shit.."

    Reports are that Roma wanted Ziyech but Ajax were asking for too much money

    I think at the beginning of the summer Ajax stated that Ziyech's transfer fee would be €26M and they would not accept less. Roma was trying to lo-ball the price.
     
  24. I'm not very confident on the operation of both Ajax and PSV defenses heading for their CL matches. Some individuals in there do well, but in the total composition of the defenses I see too many lapses that get unpunished by the front line suckers of FC Groningen (missed a glaring open chance to equalize and at the end one huge chance too) and ADO, but willnot by the likes in the CL.
    I really hope they up their performance, otherwise it gets nasty.
