you guys are apparently after Steaua's 24-year old left back Mihai Nesu. you'd probably get him pretty cheap I'm sure.

never been a fan of him, I mean he's pretty solid and determined but for the past two season he's been pulled off by injuries and only had average performances. he could be good if he'd go forward a bit more, but he always appeared so lost on the pitch, with or without the ball.

Thanks for the info Theo, I've read it as well that Ajax was interested in him we'll see ;)

Yes I've watched the game against Inter and one thing is for sure:

KENNETH IS BACK!
Fantastic goal :fluffy:
Good to see Edje back in action as our new captain (Y)
That Julio Cruz is getting better and better :| and we are really poor in taking penalties :(
Tomorrow we play against VFB Stuttgart for third place.

I hope you'll guys beat VfB mates! :D

Silencer, I can't figure out how Cruz has suddenly become Ibra v2...:| He's just getting better and better! But hey, us Inter fans ain't complaining! :amika:

Good game indeed. Nice to see Davids and Leo back. We were very solid in offence today,but the defence was not impresive again. We deadly need a centre back! Boulahrouz would be good replacement for Stam, i hope there still is a chance to see him at Ajax

Ajax-AZ 6-1!!!

When the result became 0-1 so early, i was very pesimistic about this one, but it turned out, that there was not so bad game :amika: Good to see Perez and Leo scoring

Yeah for a moment I was counting us out of the title race. But this is great, 6-1 against those arrogant kids from Alkmaar. Turning point was ofcourse the penalty kick and the sending of of De Zeeuw. But what a way to start 2008 though, may it be an omen. :D

Amen we sent them back to the cheesemarket in Alkmaar with a thrashing!
2x Hunter (could've scored more though but who's complaining)
1x Bakircioglu
1x Leonardo (fantastic comeback for him)
1x Perez (Penalty but he was very important, two assists and a goal! he's back)
1x Vertonghen (one of my favo's at the moment and he's getting better and better)

I had a ball this afternoon in de ArenA and we were singing about the transfer (not gonna happen) to AZ :amika:

Hopefully we can hold on to Maarten because the Spurs want him but if not...I hope we will contract Piet Velthuizen (one of the greates talents and goalkeepers in Holland) he was awesome against de Graafschap!

Good start indeed, NAC (Amstelcup) and NEC away are the next games..

IN YOUR FACE LOUIS :bouncy:

Is it true that The Hunter might go to Real? That's what Ernesto Bronzetti(well know agent and close ties with Real) said today. F*CK!!!

I don't know where you got that from, but Klaas promised to stay until the end of the season and I think Van Geel won't let him or anybody else go this transfer window

I meant for June. Anyway that guy last year said Ronaldinho to Milan and Chivu to Real and that never happend so...

Hunter has told the media that he is very happy with the return of Edgar Davids and Kenneth Perez. "We play so much better than we did a few weeks ago, there is a clear difference now and that helps me scoring goals.
Kenneth can score goals and gives great assists and Edgar is agressive and dangerous in midfield and gives out great passes as well"

He is not planning to leave Ajax untill next summer like Zlatan said and hell I don't know if he goes to Real Madrid I highly doubt it though because they have Ruud van Nistelrooy and he just signed a new contract till 2010.
Manchester United wants to bring out a bid for 18M I believe and Juve wants him so we'll see who will sign him in the end.
One thing is for sure, he's going nowhere now, Ajax will not cooperate and Hunter wants to become champions.

Well he's certainly going to leave to a big gun after this season and to be honest I don't give a crap to whom he goes aslong as we get a lot of money for it.

Oh and Silencer, talking about Alves:

Yeah it was hilarious yesterday great atmosphere wasn't it :junior:

I've just read that there were scouts from 6 EPL teams in the crowds yesterday: Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool (for Huntelaar), Spurs (for Stekelenburg), Blackburn Rovers (for Maduro) and the last one is a joke: Sunderland (Like there are players from Ajax who want to play there)

Again I hope we can hang on to Steek and the other players will not be allowed to leave YET except Maduro.

Oh and mark77 there is no mentioning what so ever about Hunter and Real, not on any official/fansite from Ajax.

Huntelaar to Madrid would be a stupid move. He'd have a hell of a time trying to force Ruud out the starting 11 and I don't think he'd be able to do that. And a line-up with both Ruud and Huntelaar wouldn't work I think, too much of the same.

If he's smart he stays until the summer to move to a big European team. Although the chances for a big transfer will then highly depend on his performances during the euro 2008.

I'm not too unhappy Ajax humiliated AZ. Now van Gaal can shut up, although he won't of course, as he still thinks AZ has a chance to win the league. Now for Ajax, I think you'd have to agree you aren't very stable and are able to put big results against big teams (Feyenoord twice last year (0-4 and 4-1?), PSV 1-5 and yesterday AZ 6-1) but manage to screw up against smaller teams soon after those big matches (RKC away comes to my mind immediatly).

This doesn't take away Ajax'll most probably play for the championship until the end, but I think PSV will aswell. Both teams will drop enough points in the remaining fixtures, so Feyenoord will be able to keep up with us, but they're going to lose their chances for a championship in the big matches I think.

I agree with you on both points Cody, it would be a big mistake if Klaas-Jan would go to Real and we win against big teams and loose points against the 'smaller' teams like Excelsior and VVV for crying out loud!!
Next week NEC away, always very difficult to play against and Mario Been is doing well there and I'm very curious about the game against NAC wednesday for the cup..

IMO Ajax and PSV will be the only teams fighting for the championship because Feyenoord won't be able to keep up with us in the long run, it's going to be a very exciting second half of the season (Y)

Youth Team
So Maduro goes to Valencia for 3 mln. euros. Well, he would go on a free transfer in summer anyway, so it's pretty good deal for us i think. Now when Perez is back, there wasn't a place for him in starting eleven, so..
Good luck Hedwiges and thanks for everything :clapwap:

i think i'd like to join this thread.

i've been an ajax fan since 1978 when i first became enamored of the dutch national team. i live in the usa so the world soccer scene at that time was a real mystery. but i played the sport like a demon and my father took me to a satellite broadcast of the 78 world cup final. the program we bought that day had a great section on the oranje and the rise of ajax in the early 70s. i was all of 12 years old, but i played the same general position as cruyff so i was naturally drawn to him. (yes, i know he wasn't on the 78 squad but he cast a long shadow as everyone well knows.)

i don't get to see ajax play much. in fact, i can think of two matches in the last five years. but i follow every match online and track their progress. i keep hoping that they have another wonder squad like the '95 team so i can see them lift the european cup.

cheers!

Welcome to the Ajaxforum Xajax and please feel free to participate in our discussions and stuff, it's always nice to meet a fellow Ajaxfan (Y)

Yeah Cody we all sucked today :(
1-1 against NEC just isn't good enough, terrible game..thankgod Hunter scored for us otherwise we would've lost this one.
And PSV against VVV well VVV is a difficult opponent it seems, all draws against topteams but today we didn't play as a topteam, more like a subtop-team. Good thing that AZ lost against Heerenveen (another beating for Louis) that makes up for it a bit..

Haha, what a strange weekend. VVV-Venlo is really turning out to be a giant killer. :)

Well I'm happy they drew PSV cause otherwise we would fall further behind them. You could argue this was actually a rather good weekend with us gaining a point on Feyenoord, AZ getting trashed(again) and keeping PSV within touching distance.
