People who have no clue about Ajax or just don't want to listen to others because they have a separate agenda is best ignored. As you said Ajax doesn't have to win but they have to win in a certain way. They have to play in a certain way in all the games and then win too.It's a real question though: what does it mean in a practical sense for a coach that the pressure at United is global? How do you think that this manifests itself for a coach, in a way that's different from what he would experience at a club like Ajax?
I'm happy to be proven wrong in my opinions, but I'd need arguments. Right now, you're backing out the moment I question your comment. That's not helpful.
I remember watching the first game against Spurs and after the match they asked Gullit if now Ajax will go and defend? Gullit laughed and said that Ajax will play exactly the same way. The British pundits didn't believe him. They played exactly the same way and lost to Spurs.
Yes I would have him over Ole. Any day because he will get the team to play good football. They are very good in tight situations. They pass the ball crisply and move crisply on and off the ball.
I would also say that how many of the people here commenting has actually gone to The Olympic Stadium or the Johan Cruijff Arena to see a match? Especially against Feynoord and PSV? It is a burning cauldron and the pressure on Ajax to win is as high and I would say now a lot higher than at United. United can get away by everyone saying that is is rebuilding. At Ajax the Manager does not have that luxury. If you do not win and if you do not play a certain way then you are out. By the way they have more ECs/CLs than us. 4 to our 3.
