Another defeat 4-2 having been 2-0 up after 30 mins .Kotarksi's mistakes accounted for 2 goals.Maybe we need to find some goalkeepers from Holland.Varela and Kotarski now giving away 2 games.

Pereira and Brobbey our goals.Hansen for Brobbey and Taylor for Unuvar around the 60 min mark but Mazraoui went off with an ankle injury after 70 mins ,V Gelderen sub.

Problem with this team they are young kids playing mainly adults although Jong Utrecht were not adults.

A 2-0 win tonight with goals by Hansen and Mendez. Subs were Mendez for Jensen on 70,Pynadath for Reeger on 80 and Kemper for Unuvar on 86

A fine win as the starting lineup was 18 years and 204 days ,the youngest lineup ever in the 2nd league of Holland.

Amol my thoughts on who might make it to the first team squad .Orange 14 and others feel free.

Traore can be considered a first team squad player and Danilo Pereira and Jurrien Timber have made the bench .I expect JT to be in the first team squad next season and Unuvar also. Not sure of Pereira and he like Ekkelenkamp could do with being loaned out.Scherpen is making progress and could be No 2 goalie next season.

Of the other regulars In Jong Quinten Timber is making good strides in MF. Taylor,Brobbey,Hansen all probably need more game time in Jong next season but I see them getting chances.

Of the others in the squad Castillo could be back up LB but Pierie may go back to Heerenveen on loan as Botman looks like coming back.Jensen and Mendez both should not be ruled out yet and will need more time at Jong especially Jensen who has had injuries.

Finally expect to see current u19 players Llansana,Kasanwirjo,Salah-Eddine,Reeger and Rensch regularly in Jong Ajax next season.

Right over to our pal Orange 14 or any of the Dutch guys who follow Jong closely.

I think SPL has captured my thoughts as well. I will only add some additional considerations. I thin Unuvar is a real talent but I don't know what his position is. He is good on the ball with very nice field vision which leads me to think he might be best in the MF. However, he's been deployed as a wing player by both Ajax and the Dutch youth NT. I don't know about Danilo. He will likely stay with the team if only to have a Brazilian speaker when Antony arrives next summer as Neres will presumably leave (I say presumably as I worry his knee problems are more severe than have been reported).

Ekkelenkamp is a very hard worker but is he more of a Klaassen player or van de Beek? I don't know as his playing time on the first team has been limited so far but I'm not sure he has the speed van de Beek has but he appears to be better on the ball than Klaassen. Digressing for a moment, it is interesting that Werder have played Klaassen as their primary holding MF which is something I though Ajax should have done. Scherpen appears to be a solid keeper and he's quite tall but very quick as well.

I watched most of the Dutch youth WC matches last year. Hansen is the real deal and I think Brobbey, though a bit short, is as well. Brobbey reminds me a little of Kun Agurero; let's hope that's the kind of player he becomes. I'm not sure about Taylor as his quickness is not evident. He seldom loses the ball which is good but is he more of a defensive MF for the future? Rensch appears to be a very good prospect but needs more playing time at the higher level. Reeger was used as a CB when suspensions piled up for the NT and was decent. I'm not convinced by Salah-Eddine who seems to give the ball away cheaply. Castillo is only 20 and may be the best LB prospect.
Appie Nouri will forever be remembered for his grace and humanity on and off the pitch!

Orange and myself must think very similar with our youths .I agree with all his comments above .I too am not sure about Eddine. Rensch is just 17 and although a Cd is being played in MF in recent games.Reeger,not 17 until August is back playing MF.

SPL & Orange14 - Thanks for the great in-depth answer to my question.

So sounds like Scherpen is doing great and ready to move up to the first team. Would Varela/Scherpen be ready to take over if Onana leaves? That's a huge hole to fill. We were all equally scared when Onana took over from Cillessen :smallgrin.gif:

I agree about Traore - he's getting playing time and he's already first team. Just need to build up experience to play against wily teams like Getafe.

I've heard great things about Hansen. Hopefully Neres might stay another year (with all the injuries he's had this year) which lets Hansen the time to make sub appearances without any pressure next year.

Castillo - is he good enough to replace Nico this summer?

I've read a lot about Taylor's leadership abilities, but if he's a DM, we have an overload of players who can play that position currently. Martinez/Eiting/Blind.

Ekkelenkamp/Gravenberch will be asked to replace Donny.

Botman will definitely be back to be the secondary LCB.

2nd league game away to NEC ko 21.00 CET on tv so streams.I am busy this evening so wont catch much of the game.

Kotarski,v d Sloot,Kasanwijo,Musampa,Douglas,Llansana,Reeger,Taylor,Q Timber,Brobbey,Unuvar

subs Reiziger,de Waal,Warmerdam,Hillen,Rasmussen,Mendez ,Giovanni

The starting lineup are all teenagers and indeed only Mendez is not a teenager(he was only 20 last week) First time we have put out an all teenage lineup. Jansen,V Gelderen both injured but nothing about Hansen. He Brobbey and the Timbers have not signed new contracts and I do wonder if Hansen is about to leave.

I am a lover of our youth but not sure what we are going to do with so young a squad!!

Well Hansen did unfollow Ajax on instagram, so it is looking increasingly likely that he will leave, where to? Do Man city still want him?
