    This is probably the first game your going into that your not the favourite for it will be interesting to see how the side fairs it is a really evenly matched contest that could go either way

    De Koel is local dialect for De Kuil which can be translated as The Pit,
    which is where the stadium is in...

    Fair play lots of effort being put into this story it's hard to keep up with it :D

    Very strong European results there, however you have not been properly tested yet, I didn't realise there were this many UCL qualifying fixtures, what a grind to get to the groups. Perfect start to the season really, the question is who will slip first but looking at it, it seems PSV actually have already, maybe Feyernoord will have a title challenge this season, all too early to tell

    Champions League form is looking terrific, need to find a way to translate that into the league. But you are not losing, which is key. Finding out how to win close games gives good experience for later in the season.

    @Ashy that qualifying path is (obviously) simulated. Quick games can now have the Champions League lay-out so it's easy to simulate. But indeed, for clubs from smaller leagues the path is this long. The Dutch champion enters in the play-offs, while #2 comes in at the 2nd qualifying round.

    All results (save those of Ajax) are taken straight from reality. The only change is that teams not in-game won't make the group stages for obvious reasons :wink:

    Because of the new game engine, you can't slip. I still possess a lot of the ball and create chances but to get them goals in, is harder. But fortunately, that is similar to the reality of Ajax for quite a while now.

    The team has started the season strong and looks like it has a chance to finally win a trophy after to long without one. Ajax is the giant of Dutch football and belongs at the top and under Dani it looks on course to reach its goals

    Finally a big league win instead of the narrow margins. I'm sure the fans were happy after being unsettled in the last match. Now the test begins with Champions League.

    What a great run through the qualifying stages. Ajax has a real chance to surprise some people. Can Cruijff guide them to something bigger? Only time will tell...

    Very good group. You knew it wasn't going to be the easiest group but after Bayern, Ajax have to be seen at favorites for second.

    Ajax and youth academy players, not many better combos than that. It's amazing what they can do with young talent and it looks like these two are the next two in a long list of great players to come from Ajax.

    Adding them into the Champions League squad right away is a big ask but would be great experience to be able to insert them into a few matches.

    Benfica are not the team they used to be, definitely a group you can get out of but not top, Bayern are too strong I think, as for that youth academy graduate, he looks really good, it would be cool to see you show his skill moves and weak foot stars along with workrates. potential is fantastic though

    5 goals in 4 matches for Ziyech and the club remains unbeaten. Great start to the season before the break. Hopefully the momentum carries on after the players return.
