I first began supporting Ajax in the late 1990s after watching Edwin van der Sar playing for the team. I do not remember when exactly, but possibly after finding out Ajax won the 1995 European Cup. That team was a magical one. Marc Overmars. The de Boer brothers. Nwankwo Kanu. Jari Litmanen. Clarence Seedorf. Danny […]

[2618] Ajax went above expectation

Frankly, when I found out that Ajax would be grouped with Real Madrid (again!), Manchester City and Borrusia Dortmund in the group stage of the Champions Leauge, my heart sank. Does Ajax have any chance against these giants? Borrusia Dortmund maybe but Real and City? The first two results were grim. In the first match, […]

This season has been an amazing one for Ajax. Ajax had to fight really hard to get where it is right now and that is number one. Too many times, the prospect of a spot in the highly lucrative Champions League that is important to the financial health of the team was increasingly distant. AZ […]

After six painful years of waiting, losing and near misses, Ajax are finally the champions of the Netherlands. This season was close and it is a testament of the increasingly competitive nature of the Eredivisie. No one team dominates the rest any longer. The make-up of the Eredivisie is no longer of Ajax, Feyenoord and […]

After five disappointing years mingling with the unpure, Ajax finally return to top-flight soccer. Too excited Ajax are, that the Amsterdammers outrageously jumped straight into the so-called Group of Death, filled with AC Milan, Real Madrid and Auxerre. It is really hard to see a more competitive group for this season’s Champions League than the […]

[1910] Of Ajax 2 – 1 Fiorentina

Ajax, we, are through to the final 32, being the only Dutch representative in the UEFA Cup after both Twente and NEC lost to Marseille and Hamburg respectively. The Marseille game was close, being settled through tightly contested penalty shootout after regulation time. NEC meanwhile never stood a chance. Happy, happy, happy! And seven minutes […]

[1905] Of Ajax 1 – 0 Fiorentina

It’s a beautiful day. It was in Italy too! What a goal! Another Dutch team, Twente also won with the same scoreline in France against Marseille.

[1867] Of Cvitanich!

I think Ajax is doing just fine without Huntelaar. Though it is sad to see him leaving for Real Madrid, we now have Cvitanich! He is definitely up to the task. Here is his first hat trick for Ajax, just in time to leave 2008 with a bang! The first two goals: The final goal: […]

They did it in style too by demolishing PSV 4 to 1 in Amsterdam. Long ago, it was typical to see for Ajax to lose to PSV in the Arena. Every time, it seemed, it was PSV which had the home ground advantage in Amsterdam. It was as if moving to the Arena from De […]

This season of the Eredivisie has been extraordinary. It began with none of the traditional Big Three at the top. Two of them lingered in mid-table while another dangerously lurked at the bottom. Sure, it was early and panic would be excessive. But with about two-thirds of the season to go, the Big Three collectively […]
