I'm still going to experiment with IPTV to see how it works.
You will love IPTV. You'll never go back to cable TV again
I wish IPTV would work with a cellphone but I’m guessing it can’t. The only place I get time to watch games these days
It can, you just need to find the right App to stream it.
Some people take this game way too serious
Just opened up the ESPN app and it did show ESPN+ for the match on Saturday.
Crisis averted! I was not going back to the dark ages of wasting endless time trying to find a stream to watch the match.
A bit late, but I just got back from the beach and I'm subscribed. Hup Ajax!
Watching RKC - AZ right now. Props to ESPN for making the right choice!
So what does everything think about the season? Expectations?
PSV are very good and experienced. They did a lot of great things this summer but the Propper transfer was outstanding. Their best team in a long time so winning the league won't be easy. Feyenoord looks better but I don't think they'll threaten. AZ has taken a giant step back.
My biggest concern is the midfield by far. Last season it looked like Gravenbersch as a one-man midfield lots and lots of times. Unless Kudus can finally get fit/healthy, I fear it's going to be the same. I'm hoping Taylor can come along and be a factor by the end of the season. Goalkeeper could be an issues too.
My most interesting player is is Haller. I am curious how he will do in a full season. Someone who is just out there to score goals might actually be a good thing even though he may not fit our style.
The wings will be interesting too-- what to do with Tadic, Berghius, Neres AND Antony. I imagine some Tadic as the 9 but with how much they paid Haller, I don't see that too often.
Final thing is what moves are left to make? Ajax almost have no choice but to take that 20m + sell on for Alvarez. That's ridiculous money and I'd rather have Martinez in the MF anyways.
Steklenberg; Blind, Martinez, Timber, Mazraouai; Alvarez, Gravenbersch, Klaassen; Tadic, Haller, Berghius
Outside of Neres and Rensch a very weak bench...
I have to watch on my phone as a speeding driver hit the utility pole that provides our phone and internet service. Car hot the pole and severed it, totaling the car.
Lasse. Good to see him.
yikes. Glad they got the pole and not your house or anything else!
psv definitely looking strong. I think we will get a good read on them this week against Benfica. Don’t think AZ and Feyenoord have the strength as you mentioned.
I’m unsure of Haller. Hope I’m proven wrong.
Ha! Keep proving me wrong, Sébastien!
Haller 1-0 already
I'm not a huge fan of Haller/Alvarez either but they might actually be what this team needs. Pragmatic players who are about the end product vs. the build up.
I just don't think at the CL-level those guys are good enough. Especially Alvarez passing the ball.
They're going to score like 8-10 goals today.
Maz with one. I like it!
Gonna be a long season for NEC if they keep defending like that
LOL @ van Rooij
See… that’s one of reasons I’m unsure of Haller. A striker should bury that. Every. Time. His first chance too could have been slotted home with a more skilled finish.
Mercy rule in effect
