    Álvarez is already a dedicated CDM. Not sure with Guti’s mobility issues that I’d have both of them on the field at the same time.

    They’ve only been scored on twice in the league? Wild

    Not really. A retirement home grandma could outrun this guy.

    Guti not being able to run is not exactly a new criticism. He’s always been singled out for it.
     
  5. He's been quite mobile since he's back in the starting eleven. So maybe this coach spanked it out:)

    To be fair he's pretty slow.

    Maybe Mexico needs the same type of players he plays with at Ajax. :thumbsup:

    ten Hag for DT!

    Ajax is one of the few teams with a perfect CL score since 2000

    Barcelona - 2002/2003
    Real Madrid - 2011/2012
    Real Madrid - 2014/2015
    Bayern Munchen - 2019/2020
    Ajax - 2021 / 2022
    Liverpool - 2021/2022

    Additionally, only Bayern Munchen team of 2019/2020 (+19) and Real Madrid of 2011/2022 (+17) had a better goal difference than Ajax (+15).

    Bayern ended up winning the CL, whereas that Real Madrid team eventually lost against Bayern in the semi-final.

    Time for a successor of Rafael Marquez.

  11. Funny was in the Sporting thread someone was bashing the Eredivisie as a trash league.
    I thought you got some nerves after your team has been beaten up the way of our nr 13 and 16 of the Eredivisie.
    In fact our bottom 3 atm of playing against Ajax did better with PEC only 2-0,
    Sparta with 1-0 and Heracles 0-0 than Sporting.

    Alvarez was huge today in the Classic against Feyenoord. He was my MOTM with a solid 8. He controlled the MF and made some critical interventions and pressed well. Ajax kept a clean sheet yet again.

    He picked up a silly YC early in the first half but was rock solid the rest of the game breaking up PSV plays in the midfield. Ajax are now in first place!

    We were surprised that he played as he returned with a slight injury from NT duty. I thought he was one of the better players for Ajax on the day but again picked up a silly YC very early in the match. However, ten Hag showed complete faith and let him play the full 90 minutes. Near the end of the match he had a rocket shot from just inside the box that clanged off the corner of the cross bar. The Heracles keeper stood their frozen and it's a shame that it didn't go in. His passing is close to the expert level of an Ajax MF!!

    I can't wait for the CL match with Benfica.

    Minute 1:28. That would've been nice.
