I have recently started a new save at Ajax. For some weird reason, my board decided to bring Coleman in from Everton. I have bought Marco Rojas from Melbourne Victory from 2.8M, good young talent and one for the future I think. I also signed Cosmin Matei but because of a work permit complication I can only loan him out.
Good story & well done going undeafeated! I have been playing with Ajax for a while and have just kicked off my 3rd season. The youth setup is great as I have just had a wonderkid striker emerge in this year's batch of youngsters, but prior to that some interesting midfielders to develop too.

You do start with a lot of young dead wood though as they have a huge overall squad IMO. I couldn't hold onto Alderweireld as Arsenal unsettled him and he wanted to leave in my season 1 pre-season. Out of the starting players Eriksen has been amazing (playing as an Advanced Playmaker in Centre MID - loads of assists!),Van Rhijn got slotted in as DR (with wingback tendencies) and was versatile enough to quickly adapt to that position and become a "natural" there. For me Siem De Jong has been a prolific goalscorer as a Complete Forward. I have rotated Fischer and Sigporsson in the other striker role - both scoring a lot too.

I have won the league twice and cup once in 2 seasons. Best Champions League run was season 2 when we got out of the group (defeating AC Milan and Celtic twice) to play Man City. Drew the first game 2-2 then lost 3-2 away arrrgh!

Inspirational signings have been : Vlad Chiriches, Nicolae Stanciu (as ML!!), Agustin Allione (MR) & Lucas Romero (BWM). Scouting alot of South Americans but keen to bring on the Ajax youth too.
Guys, this story ended last year. The writer is gone now, and so are probably all the commentors. No point bringing it back up.

The point is we want to share our love for Ajax. Also not all of the commentors have gone. You have 2 posts this month alone. Back in your box please Louis O!

Really you shouldn't be sharing your love for Ajax on this thread as it has has been gone for quite a while now, this is not the place. There are many other places where you can do this. Also, Louis has posted over 100 times this months, so your argument is invalid.
Right, I'm going to lock this up to prevent further pointless arguing. If the author returns and wants it unlocked(highly unlikely), they can PM me.
