Yes, they were an amazing team, but the Dutch league was very weak. I wonder how they would have done in Spain or Italy.Politician said:If Ajax '95 remained together, there is no reason why they wouldn't have won more than just the one CL title.
Unbelievable team, the players have been playing together since the academy days when they were just 11, 12.
As a team they were just about as good as any I have ever seen. I think they went 72 matches unbeaten in the Dutch league as well, and conceded something like 18 goals in that tiime.
I'm not saying Ajax would have champions immediately, but we played AC Milan 3 times that year and we beat them every time. We also outplayed Juve.Setzer said:Yes, they were an amazing team, but the Dutch league was very weak. I wonder how they would have done in Spain or Italy.
Well yes it's always a debate whether a team is that good or an opponent is that weak. Still I dare to say that particular game Ajax played football that was near to perfection. The postioning of every Amsterdam-player that match was soo incredibly good. I specially remember the divine game of Musampa and Davids. But it wa sthe entire team that played well. They combined everything: intelligence, speed, technique, grace,... It was how the game should be played.Setzer said:But don't forget that it was a weak Real Madrid back then, if I remember well they ended 6th in a worst Liga than now... don't get me wrong, Ajax was a great team, but I think they would lose against the best Dream Team of Cruyff.

Wow, that's a while ago. Didn't Kluivert score twice back then?
