    I thought Alvarez had a solid match today. His passing was more assured and he was strong on all of his interventions. He had a nice play in the box to put a cross out to touch that might have posed some danger. He was subbed off for Kudus who didn't do much at all. Ajax are out of Europe now and have the Cup final Sunday against Vitesse.

    Not registering Haller was a big screw up.

  6. Yup. It would have been the scoring the goal or not in the two matches.

    Roma scoring a goal right after Edson got subbed off is one of those things I kinda hate and kinda like.

    Once Edson came off Ajax looked pretty awful.

    I should have posted my comments earlier but Alvarez has received a lot of praise from Dutch media for essentially taking the Vitesse playmaker Tannane out of the match. His marking was fantastic in what was otherwise a very boring game. It's going to be interesting to see if Ajax wants to keep or sell him on this summer.

    I only caught the 2nd half today and thought Alvarez was really good. He was much more positive in his passing and carried the ball into open spaces which is what Ajax need the defensive MF to do. Wonderful goal.

    He’s getting sold this summer. Hopefully Ajax buy Naveda.

    Who will buy him. I'm sure Ajax will ask for a minimum of €20 M and there are not that many teams around with that kind of money.

    Who needs him and who is willing to pay what Ajax will ask for him?

    No lo se rick. It's his first season as an undisputed starter and he's still got to improve on the ball control and passing, which is precisely what Ajax is good at. I certainly haven't minded seeing Edson play 90 consistently this year.

    He should stay.

    it makes sense to sell him while he is playing well. I can see him being beneficial as a ball winning midfielder in a mid table EPL team. We will see what happens this summer. We will see if this summer is when clubs begin to dish out money for players.
     
  21. He's too good. He should go....to weaken Ajax:sneaky:

    Another strong game from Alvarez today as Ajax defeated 2nd place AZ 2-0 to virtually clinch the league title (they need one point from the next four matches). He won almost every duel and had a spectacular tackle right at the goal mouth to deny a goal off of a short corner. ten Hag commented on the play of Martinez and Alvarez pointing out that they want to win every single challenge and the rest of the team can learn from their aggressiveness!!!
