Jep, good call.
In the first two Frank de Boer years Ronald was mostly positive about his brother.

But in the last years on the Dutch tv Ronald de Boer often said that in his eyes Ajax was making a lot of positional mistakes, sometimes destroyed the performance of the 1th team at half time when he had the tv analysis and the team was playing boring.
Gave very precise instructions what to do better, but unfortanely they probably weren't watching tv in the dressing room.

I liked this move as well. One of the smarter kids with amazing technique from that 95 team. Injuries cut his time short.

Hungarian U19 winger Oliver Horvath has joined PSV on a years contract. He has not played much for the last 2 years since joining due to injuries.

Another injury prone U19 from overseas has gone Ricardo Farcas a left back from Romania has signed for Italian side SPAL1913.

Signed a 3 year contract to 2019 and like Horvath has hardly played for 2 years.

And another goes,Denilho Cleonise a 16 nearly17 year old winger in our u19 squad is signing for Genoa in Italy.He joined us from AZ last summer having been at Amsterdam side Zeeburgia.He did not play that much in U17 last season but was kept on although no contract. Not a big talent more a player for filling the squad.

We have seen the best part of 20 teenage kids leave us in the last 4 years to sign contracts abroad.They have a tough act to make it.

Only 5 we really would like to have stayed;

Fosuh -Mensah now at Fulham
Dilrosun now Hertha Berlin although a reserve
Malan back atPSV

Castillo and Redan still at Chelsea.

Mink Peeters left for Real Madrid, failed to make the grade with Almere last season and has been loaned out to a Spanish 3rd division side.

This pitch looks really strange, Ajax Under 19 lost a friendly against Anderlecht Under 21 at De Toekomst with 1-2 today. Some highlights:

Same afternoon Ajax Under 17 played Anderlecht Under 18 and won 3-1.

Yes that was weird. The match official had to guess where the boundaries of the penalty box were and how to spot the ball when he called one against Anderlecht. Maybe they were using the pitch for some sport that I have never heard of and didn't have time to lay down the football lines. :smallgrin.gif:

Yep,
Ajax will probably cancel their football activities and will focus on other sports. :xyxthumbs.gif:

The youth teams Under 13 play 'positional matches' on very small pitches so they learn to make the right passing decision very quick. Probably they've used one of the pitches often used by the youngest kids for this friendly.

16 year old Kai-Jana Hoever a right back has joined Liverpool . He turned down a contract with us. He was 16 earlier in the year and played at RB regularly for our u17 after the winter break .Clearly a talent but not a top one.Liverpool report he is hugh talent !!

Gravenberch and Brobbey were the outstanding talents in this years 16 . Next year the outstanding 16 year old will be Naci Unuvar a creative MF and rated the best talent in our whole academy.He has said he want to stay with us and his father have indicated likewise.

Compared to what they bring out from their own academy they probably rate it as hugh, yes. :smallgrin.gif:

Well they did develop Raheem Sterling! I remember a match with one of the youth Ajax clubs and Liverpool some years ago and you could see how talented Sterling was. I don't remember whether it was one of the UEFA youth league games or the Futures Cup. In general you are right. English clubs have so much money they can buy talent rather than develop it.

Well, at the Youth League level a couple years ago Viktor Fischer looked like he would be the biggest talent in decades:

Yes this is it, Sterling is #11 for LIverpool. I don't think Fischer has ever recovered from the leg injury he suffered. He doesn't have the blinding speed he had. It's too bad as he was a special player and now will have to play out his time in Denmark.

EDIT: Great double save by van der Hart on the PK following the foul on Sterling in the box.
