It's been a crazy year or two, I'll say that much.
Glory hunting since 1988!
So you're to blame for the Orange decline since our last and only trophy.
Don't think that there is anything wrong here. IIRC van Bronckhorst and Artur Numan both were converted from other positions. Sinkgraven is not good enough to play in the MF given the current players on the squad.
Well, those two may be examples of successful conversion and no doubt there are others too. The ones I mentioned unfortunately aren't and if they insist on making defenders out of them and the result will be promising MFs turned out mediocre defenders. If Sinkgraven isn't good enough to play in MF and he certainly isn't good enough to play in defence, then, once healthy, the best thing to do will be to let him go, for everybody's sake.
If it makes you feel any better, I was the only kid in Texas that had a huge flag with a picture of Ruud Gullit* hanging on his wall.
*AC Milan Gullit, not 010 Gullit.
I think it's still too early to give up on Mazraoui as he has only had a few months to make the change. Sinkgraven has been hit with lots of injuries in his time at Ajax and was at best a panic buy when he was acquired. It would be best if he moved on.
Game on in a few hours. Maybe it's the new season, but I'm optimistic.
That is the spirit. I expect Ajax to win every match but I am sometimes disappointed

It's good to see Frenkie back in MF where he belongs. Wouldn't it be better to start Eiting or Donny and use Schone as a sub later on, if need be? Anyway, good luck.
Good first half. Just don't lose focus and give up a cheap goal to let Standard back in. Would like to see another goal seal this deal!!
3-0. Lights out.
Tadic deserves most of the credit for that one.
Dynamo Kiev is next
Wasn't Huntelaar in an offside position when he scored? From the replay it looks like he was. Well, what's done is done. Let's look forward to finish the game in style.
He was offside, but you cant argue that Ajax dont deserve to be ahead in this game
This looks promising.
Fine performance from Ajax tonight. A little helter skelter in added time and they were lucky not to concede as Standard could not put a shot on frame. A couple of poor passes also led to chances but Onana was up to the task of saving some tough shots. Not much else to complain about. Spartak Moscow lost their tie to PAOK Salonika while Dynamo Kiev and Benfica move on to the final round with Ajax. I believe Ajax are destined for a trip to the Ukraine.
Onana (7.5) - stopped everything and got nice help from the post as well to keep a clean sheet
Tagliafico (7) - fine match and good on the ball
Blind (7) - one bad pass but otherwise a solid game
de Ligt (7.5) - closed everything down in his area and dominant in the air
Mazraoui (7) - unlike last week, he was never tested
Schöne (7) - solid match and I guess due for some rest on Saturday
de Jong (7.5) - really nice to see him play a full 90 in the MF
Ziyech (7) - yes he was sloppy on the ball a couple of times but he gets right back into the game and pressures the opponent
Neres (7.5) - always dangerous in this game
Huntelaar (7.5) - got the game winner and made a lot of good runs to get free
Tadic (7.5) - not only is he playing well, he is having a good time as well
Kristensen (6.5) - played the final third for Mazraoui and played it well
van de Beek (7) - nice job in for Schöne
Labyad (NR) - on late for Ziyech
Away to VVV on Saturday
I didnt see one weak spot in this game
Neres was weak to me, I don't like him on the left flank, he is too limited. Clearly better when he cuts in on the right side.
Uhm, he scored the 3-0. Nice finish with his left foot too
Yes a trip to the Ukraine is now on the menu. Matches are scheduled for August 22 & 28. Would be great for points if both PSV and Ajax can qualify as it looks like Dutch clubs may be shut out of the Europa League.
Frenkie De Jong is such a joy to watch. He understands space so well and it’s so refreshing to have a Dutch midfielder able to turn on the ball and actually pass forward with good vision
Maybe I'm good luck ...
