    Introducing my first long-read. Three, four times per season we will go deeper into (real) club details.

    In this first long-read: the history of the animosity between two icons at Ajax: Johan Cruijff and Louis van Gaal. It is a stand-off between two camps that in the last decade has grown to the proportions of fantastic, intriguing thriller, about club-politics and corruption the size we only see in southern Europe, or South America. But essential, if you want to understand the wheeling and dealing at AJAX...

    Very cool to see a transfer saga involving Ziyech with Liverpool. A realistic possible signing too. 60M is about what I'd ask for too I think, I mean he's very good and has tons of potential but he's not good enough yet to demand too much more than that. I can't see you keeping hold of him for more than another season though especially if more clubs come sniffing.

    A perfect start to the season for you and the win over AEK Athens is crucial in the tough group I feel you will fight with Benfica for 2nd spot behind Bayern and you have the advantage early

    The former manager was right, a quick goal was very important. To go up 2 goals so early gives you the confidence to handle the Greek response.

    Great start to the season, let's see how long this run can continue!

    Perfect start in the league until that really tough PSV game, that's gone and thrown a spanner in the works now, I mean away to them is probably the hardest game of the season so at least it's out of the way now, I thought you may have gone unbeaten if you managed to get through it however. As for Europe it's a good start, Bayern won as well. A little worrying to concede 2 at home though to what is probably the weakest side in the group

    The winning run had to end at sometime, unfortunately it was at the hands of the rival. How will the team bounce back in this very important month will be key to the young season.

    Back on top of the table. This match seems much like the other ; a lot of possession, more chances created but a game closer than the score tells. At least the team is winning and has time to improve.

    That hits the nail on the head @Stlducks - the scores so far are covering up real and severe issues.

    @JoshDFC Normally no, but losing 5-1 when it was still 0-0 in the 60th minute (and still 2-1 in the 74th) means it all collapsed, it suddenly was like Bayern caught a bus that we missed...
