How do they play in comparison to our youth team? what makes them so impressive and any stand out players?
I made a very elaborate post but lost it somehow when I clicked "post". But to summarise it. Ajax youth teams are always fairly impressive, and always play creative attacking football, alot of good combinations, technically very sound, every player very confident in possession. They tend to be very solid as a team tactically as many of their players are brought through their own youth ranks from a young age, they understand their philosphy. But this specific youth team is regarded as a golden generation by insiders, the first talents to have been developed in Cruijff's restructured academy. Alot of individual quality. El Azzouzi was their stand out player today with 4 goals and 1 assist. But I really like Nouri too, their most creative player. But they have a bunch more talent. Youth teams tend to be a bit more inconsistent and unpredictable, but ignoring that I'd say Ajax are among the favourites to win this.
Would be lovely to beat them though, we still have to pay them back for nextgen, we haven't played them since have we?
