Great... More rookies, just what we need :nape: . And splashing out 17 million quid for another forward is just ridiculous. It's the back four that needs to be drastically improved, along with another DM.
Even though it's terrible for Dutch football, I couldn't help but smile at Ajax' exit. How an Ajax fan is capable of putting the words 'arrogant' and 'Copenhagen' in the same sentence is beyond me... Ah well, you'll probably never learn ;)
Agreed. While Ivanov wasn't perfect and not fully in control of the match, the players are to blame. Being Dutch, I'm ashamed of 'our' players and the Portuguese should be as well. A disgrace to football. Very few of the cards Ivanov handed out were questionable ( maybe Boulahrouz' second...
We're not gonna get anywhere this summer. Van Basten's back four are far too shaky for a serious attempt to even reach the quarterfinals. Quality enough up front, but that's not gonna outweigh our defensive frailties.
Arsenal made a disgrace of themselves tonight. Shameful, negative tactics by Wenger, and totally unnecessary too. With so many quality players it is just not right to play this defensively, especially against a side with, at least on paper, not as much quality. Villarreal deserved something...
So we meet again this season :) ... Hopefully we can avoid as much damage as possible in Amsterdam, and then finish the job in Euroborg. Our season has been unbelievable and reaching the CL 3rd qualification round would be utterly astounding. We'll see, I'm pretty hopeful Ajax will underestimate...
Deserved champions, definitely. And thanks for the point PSV! Could prove to be very useful to us... And it's not the first time either. I'll never forget the 0-0 on the final day of the 2002-2003 season :) . :Bow:
Superb performance once again yesterday :) . Juventus were so poor, it is unbelievable that they lead the Serie A by 10 points or so. I had the feeling that if Arsenal really wanted to, they could have trashed Juve by a margin of 2 or 3. Villarreal will be an interesting tie.
Heard it as well... The NOS (dutch national media) claim Henry's move to Barcelona is done. Luckily, it wouldn't be the first time their claims are absolutely rubbish. I rembember them stating Ajax would try to sack Charisteas back in November, something that didn't quite turn out to be the truth...
pfff, Uefa and Fifa are a bunch of hypocrites. Sure, some of the remarks directed to the G14 are probably correct ( them trying to protect themselves), but where's the critical look inside? For decades, Uefa has rarely done anything substantial for football, they're far more occupied with the...
The race for fifth place is gonna be interesting till the end. I still believe Ajax will manage it, but they'll definitely need some of their players back. Yesterday's line up was a compelete joke. Not that I'm complaining :) .
Still just rumours, thankfully. It would not be the end of the world if Henry left, no matter how influential he is. What is far more worrying is that he could go for the laughable sum of 10M pounds. THAT would be a blow, considering such a sum will never bring a back a suitable replacement.
Couldn't agree more :) , terrific match. Arsenal deserved to go through, they were slightly better again yesterday and Reyes should have settled the game before half time. But it was probably better this way, the tension in the final minutes was incredible.
I don't see Barca getting in trouble tonight. Chelsea are a great side, but I doubt they can turn around a 2-1 deficit against this Barcelona team. I'm actually hoping Barcelona teach Mourinho a lesson tonight, Mourinho is a terrific coach but he should work on his attitude IMO.
Terrible weekend for Groningen :nape: , to get owned by Willem II is a disgrace. We are lucky to see all competitors for fifth place lose as well.
And Huntelaar was awesome again today, he really deserves a call-up for the World Cup.
It was a totally deserved win for Liverpool. As an Arsenal fan I was (once again :nape: ) very disappointed with the apparent lack of belief in the squad. It's hopeless, the way the ball was just handed over to L'pool the entire match. Finishing top 4 will be very, very hard.
