Wij zijn Ajax Amsterdam
« on: November 16, 2020, 09:03:03 pm »
Season 2 and life in the elite division beckons. After an undefeated campaign and convincing league title, and  a league trophy semi final, this year the Ajax fans are in jubilant expectant moods. Their young squad are extremely well placed for the long term, but the challenge will be for them to start mixing it with the big clubs from the off and to challenge on three fronts.

With 4 of the lesser players set to move on, there are still 9 teenage players on the books, and there was a massive statement of intent as a deal worth £280m for midfield marshall Tygo Baart was rejected, skittles stating he wanted to be the best team in the league, and not sell their best players to other sides.

The Cryuff arena is expected to be ready to hold 60,000 fans by the time the league campaign starts, Skittles announced his first signing, the highly rated FC Porto versatile frontman M_Marega signing with striker S_Hansen going the other way. Skittles felt Marega being able to play across the pitch at the top was worth letting the highly rated Hansen go, the form of Traore in the development league last year giving confidence of his abilities to cover as an out and out number 9.

There are more players being targeted on the transfer front, but was giving little away other than he knew the type of players he was looking for and was making use of his knowledge of all of the European clubs as he aimed to compliment the players he already had rather than gazump the main squad.

Season two...... the treble beckons for those wanting to become legends

So as the mid season break is upon us, Skittles declared Ajax were not looking not make any signings and there maybe some players going out on loan to get game time. Sitting in 3rd, and a point off top is a good return after a difficult start to the season, qualification to the knockout stages of the WCT show Ajax are not out of place having been promoted. With the top ranked defender in the development league making a name for himself, the mid season break is going to see Ajax train their young stars further and otherwise very little disruption.

So the end of the season ended up being a disappointment to most Ajax fans, the club finished in the bottom half of the table, and the semi finals of the world club trophy was the main highlight of the campaign. Lacazette and Aubameyang were sold to make way for Mitchell and Florin, and although both have plenty of career in front of them there was a notable drop in results. But having made the end of the season and retaining elite league status. Season 3 beckons. The return of K_Pierie and C_Eiting from excellent development league campaigns sees them take first cover at central defence and anchorman respectively. The latter meaning Harry Winks gets a move into the sunshine with Olympiakos. There are a trio of 18 year olds heading to the development league this season which they are expected to shine in.

The emergence of S_V_Der_Sloot as a world class centre half sees him take the captains arm band at just 17 years old. The money canít buy man set to lead for years to come, and Lucas Moura taking VC to ensure leadership at both ends of the park.

The focus in pre season has very much been passing, passing, passing as Ajax continue their goal of total football, and the expectation that anyone pulling o; the jersey is comfortable on the ball with both feet in any part of the pitch. The clubs scouting network was working hard in the off season, and A_Ahmedov a out and out number 9 was unearthed playing in South Africa, the 25 year old Bulgarian coming in for a £111m has seen him given the nickname Nelson by his team mates.

So the pre season auction went brilliantly to plan, with Ajax picking up their first pick senior and top rated striker available in B_Raman, who has been given the number 11 shirt to play inside left on the infamous front 3. Ajax also picked up their first choice youth in Larouci, the young Frenchman was by far the best passing rated defender in the entire auction, so it was no surprise Skittles went for him. The purchases are going to allow AJax to send two more teenagers off to the development league. The Ajax love has even tempted Skittles into purchasing and old school Ajax jersey in real life!

Well itís been a disappointing Subutteo cup campaign, a 2-1 victory over Man City appeared great at the time, but successive goal scoring blanks against lower league opponents in the defeat by Red Star Belgrade, the draw against Marseille, defeat to Rangers and even a defeat against Shaktar proved too much, and for the first time in 2 seasons Ajax changed formation for the last ore season game against Helsingin. This finally ended the goal-less and winless 4 game run. But that also proved to be a change point for personnel, and the misfiring group of strikers were broken up, Mitchell the first to leave with winger Junazaj coming back in the other direction. Also auction pick Raman was sold to Wolfsburg for 155m, a 37m hit, but deemed necessary. With 4th pick full back Peters up for sale and the club scouts back on the road it will be a very different Ajax lining up when the season kicks off this coming weekend. Priorities are being in the top half of the elite division and also the League Cup.

Season 3 half term report

Well Ajax will certainly consider themselves slightly ahead from where we thought we would be at the start of the season. But thereís a sense of what could have been. We sit 5th in the league as the best of the rest behind the top 4 and are in the quarter finals of both cups, and Centre Forward Ahmedov is joint top scorer in the league with 27 goals. Made all the more amazing when the previous season long record for us stood at 16!

The other 2 scout signings of Valencia and Tutal have settled into the squad well and in the development league the future looks rosy with all 5 teenagers showing real promise and progress. With only 5 of the 26 senior players over 25 years old and only 1 over 28 and 17 players 21 or under the side very much has its best years to come, and there have been some breathtaking performances where weíve had 20-30 attempts on goal.

The introduction of a new system after successive defeats has been a huge plus and itís only the second time in our history weíve set up differently for kick off.

The next steps are to try and become a little more ruthless, there are some games where we lack the guile to get results when we are not dominating and the younger players perhaps lack that big game experience to change their fortunes when the chips are down. We may look to vary tactics/formation a little more and have faith that the players can adapt. But itís will always be a passing/pressing/attacking team.

The clubs finances are improving week on week and the Cryuff arena is only a few weeks away from holding 75,000 fans. Ajax have been the young up and comers for 20 years now, but the infrastructure at the club means this time we wonít be selling!

The aim in the rest of the season is to fight for silverware in the knockout competitions and to retain a high mid table league position.

With season 3 heading towards its conclusion Ajax announced that Skittles has signed a fresh 3 year deal at the club to extend the 3 year stay already behind them both. The club said that they had been delighted at the way old fashioned Ajax principles had been implemented at the club, and that it would now be several years before the club would be required to either buy or sell any player from a point of view of necessity. Skittles said he looked forward to overseeing the development of such a big pool of young talented players, and that the clubs focus moving forward would be to find the best young Dutch talent out there and to begin adding to the clubs trophy cabinet!
