Here in England I never ever meet anyone who follows Ajax or Dutch football but I did yesterday whilst walking in wood a few miles from home.

My and wife and I saw few people on our walk but this guy ,in his 60's, had a lovely Rhodesian Ridgeback dog and we started talking .He said the dog's name was Zeus I said Greek God of something but I am no good at Greek mythology.
I said my football team was called Ajax named after a Greek warrior. Shock reply came back his Dad came from Rotterdam and he is a life long Feyenoord fan. We laughed and had a few jokes about our clubs and then spent 15 mins debating Dutch footy,he and his son have been to Sparta and Roda in the last year .

We could have talked a lot more but his dog and my wife were both waiting patiently .

So have any of you met fellow Ajax or Dutch fans away from football?

I will put it over here.

Andy van der Meyde, several Ajax fans still know him from a spectaculair Champions League campaign....
....He is now a YouTube vlogger, a week ago he took Peter Bosz for a ride but earlier this month, Kasper Dolberg.


A talk with some stupid dick jokes, about Hakim Ziyech's ridiculous fashion & the shoes of Matthijs de Ligt, about living on your own in Amsterdam, about wanking, about whether to speak Dutch yes or no, about not having a girlfriend, about being a striker who was scouted as a winger, about how the JC Arena responds when Ajax plays a shitty match, about his debut under Peter Bosz and his time as an Ajax U19 player:

Saw the entire video - was absolutely amazing hahaha. Mathijs needs to buy some new shoes and not wear the same beaten down ones all year hahaha

Of course I remember Andy. His life got a little crazy after he left Ajax - lots of drugs and alcohol. He apparently had a pet zebra during his time at Everton. Glad to see he's doing ok.

Haha yes this is perhaps one of the best parts of the video. :biggrin.gif:
Andy van der Meyde brings the subject to material stuff... he spots Kaspers watch and wants to know... does Dolberg like to wear a nice watch and yes Kasper, do you think you are doing pretty fine contracted until 2022 on a "more than okay Ajax salary" ? :smile-ajax.gif:

And then "which teammates wear clothes you that surprise you or which you will never put on? Dolberg calls Matthijs de Ligt "a cheap bastard" wearing the same pair of shoes almost 365 days a year and then the worst thing... it are sloppy Adidas sport shoes. :excited.gif: Matthijs got the pair of shoes for free from sponsor Adidas. :smallgrin.gif:
So FC Barcelona and also Juventus want to offer De Ligt a 9 million or even a 11 million (yearly) salary .... a shitload of money but perhaps this guy, the captain of Ajax prefenrs to spend 0 euros on how he is dressed. :smile-ajax.gif: De Ligt has a girlfriend in Volendam now (she is a daugther of a former Ajax and Feyenoord player) and perhaps Matthijs just prefers lifting trophies when being captain of his home team instead of making a big, big transfer.

Yeah its an interesting aspect of who the players are - as people. We only get to see them for 2-4 hours a week, on a stage. But away from that, these are real people.

If Mathijs is still wearing beat down sneakers, maybe he doesn't care too much about money yet. Maybe just maybe he stays for another year or two. Its not that they make 30k a year at Ajax. They make decent money compared to other 19-20 year olds.

His gf's father (Molenaar) was asked about where Mathijs is going and he said I'm staying out of this. Lol.

Also saw Andy's video with Dusan Tadic - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9wsdrU4n0Y

He seems like such a nice and simple guy who has a lot of respect for Ajax. He will most likely not go anywhere and stay till the end of his contract. Fingers crossed.

My favourite Tadic video is when he is with 3 or 4 team mates, I think the others are Mazraoui, Schöne, Lamprou and Onana answering questions from the young Ajax fans.

On the yearly "Ajax Kidsclub press conference".

The Ajax media teams picked some questions the young fans did send in and then this little guys (also girls) are allowed to ask their question to the player.
Tadic is completely relaxed around the kids and is speaking Dutch to them.

One of them asks from which of their Ajax teammates the farts smell the worst. For Tadic it is then almost impossible to quit laughing.
Also the children want to know which "tasks in the household" he dislikes most. Tadic says washing the dishes. Tadic is actually helping his wife at home in the kitchen. Probably Pogba, Feillani and eliminated from Champions League Aguero don't do that at home. Now and then they f*ck the newest nanny and then replace the nanny for the 16th or 17th time but I don't see them making theirselves useful in other ways. :neutral.gif: :blackcat.gif:

I know that especially Amol really loves this kind of clips. It probably has English subtitles too.

Right about that - love these videos! These guys are such normal people. I would never in a 1000 years imagine some of the Real and Barca primadonnas ever doing this stuff.

Correct. They have just love for the game.
But also a lot of love for their local team. I am pretty sure that in modern football with everybody earning 45 million euros this is now extremely important.

And I'm pretty sure too that from all 4 Champions League semi finalists in the Ajax team they are laughing by far most often.

The smile and the joy has been disappeared for quite a long time after the Nouri incident of course. :blush.gif: :blush.gif:


Also both Matthijs and Frenkie have very normal girlfriends:

This time in VP's WAGs (Wives and Girlfriends) Justus with Mikky Kiemeney, Frenkie de Jong's girlfriend and we get to know the lady behind this Ajax player:
