Well after going through alot of trouble for this, Bruno Silva from Groningen has finally been signed. He's a right back and I think that's one of the positions we definatly needed a player, so a good buy I think.
Fantastic win against Utrecht with a stunner of a goal from our Hunter
2-0 well deserved we were superior during the game.
Urby got kicked out of the match in a real dirty manner and he was carried off the pitch on a stretcher.
Thomas Vermaelen is back and immediately he showed how important he is and not a moment to soon as well.
This weekend Vitesse away, next wednesday PSV Home and the sunday after that Feyenoord home. That's not all because in two weeks we face Roda away. I'm happy that the injuries are almost over, we have Silva now, Davids, Perez, Vermaelen, Leonardo so now we should get a good result out of those games!
Oh and Ajax will make a second bid for Orlando Engelaar this week and Engelaar really wants to come but he's willing to wait untill the summer if need be.
I think we'll have to wait atleast half a year for Engelaar. Would be a nice signing though.
Good victory over Utrecht, certainly because of the way we played, they didn't stand a chance. For a moment I thought it was going to be such a frustrating afternoon again, but fortunatly it didn't when Klaas scored his goal and 10 minutes later Johnny.
Engelaar is still hoping to come to Ajax within this week but Twente has to cooperate of course.
More transfernews: It seems that Ajax wants Rasmuss Lindgren back, he already played for us once but he grew to be an assett for Groningen.
Also Sami Kuffour will be joining us this monday in defense, he was a player for Bayern Munich for many years, monday he will get a medical and if he gets through that he will be Ajacied.
So it's looking good with Silva already been signed, Davids and Vermaelen back we will give everyone a run for their money I hope
Kuffour is a nice signing I think. Van Geel is obviously opting for experience with his signings lately. If Kuffour signs I think we have a reliable defense again.
An extra good midfielder will be nice too.
Well Ogararu plays never really crap, but also never excells. He's going to have to show more now that he isn't the only good right back we've got in our selection with the signing of Silva.
Mitea has attended the hospital more than trainings, I think. Talented player, but his body just can't handle professional football. Ajax wants to ship him off to another club.
Silva did great on his debut today keeping Ogararu out of the starting 11.
2-2 against fietstas where we had so many chances to win it but the ball was saved off the line two times!
Great goal by Urby btw after he started playing in midfield when Vermaelen came on as a sub for Vertonghen.
Kuffour is coming tomorrow for a medical, it seems that we will hire him for the rest of the season with the option to buy him in the summer if he's good enough. I'm hoping on Lindgren to return he's awesome lately
Wednesday PSV, if they play like they played against Excelsior we surely have a good chance winning it but with them you never know..
Martin van Geel:"Ajax is done shopping"
Adrie Koster:"our team is ready now"
In other words this is the team that has to make us champions, no more signings after Sammi and Rasmus.
We'll see tonight when we play against PSV, I'm at work right now but I will hurry to de ArenA to watch the game myself of course.
We have to win this and if not we MUST win on sunday against 010 or the gap will be too wide to close. But if we win both the margin will be very close and we have a good chance. 5 points behind PSV right now so let's keep our fingers crossed, good thing for us is that Affelay has been suspended for this game because IMO he is one of the best in de Eredivisie.
Rasmus will start tonight, Kuffour not yet but I think he will play against Feyen.. on sunday. We're counting on Edje and Kenneth and of course Klaas-Jan.
I don't know but PSV was better and more efficient it's the hard truth.
Two chances two goals where we had more chances but didn't score. Suarez was so close a few times but no goals so that's the story basically.
The red card was deserved it was a blunt stupid foul by Davids and before that he lunged into Farfan and escaped... and now we have to miss him on sunday against Feyenoord.
I had high hopes for this game and we f*cked up
He's the captain of FC Twente and an important player for them, he can pass, he can shoot he can score. He's a strong long player who can make other players better during the game.
He's not real fast, sometimes he makes stupid fouls because of that.
Porto interested? He wants to come to Ajax though in the summer so I would be surprised if he goes abroad but you never know.
We almost had him this week, he wanted to come to Ajax and Ajax wanted him but the club didn't cooperate
