    think i got lucky with litmanen on this load

    signed kinkladze, oojer and a couple of frees for depth so far might sign Overmars if Rangers won't put B. Laudrup available for transfer

    Both Ajax and PSV undefeated so far




    First loss and a big one :-(

    probably would recommend buying a back up keeper



    knocked out of dutch cup to Zwolle of 2nd division lost on pens with a rotated team (big mistake!)

    Knocked out a strong Udinese with Bierhoff upfront in Uefa Cup to get through to Quarters

    Half way stage top 'only slightly' with surprise package NAC in 2nd and Feyenoord and PSV both in striking distance

    First leg scored 2 early goals then Liverpool swamped me for the rest of the game. Could go either way in the 2nd leg



    League is pretty much wrapped up with time running out for the chasing pack to catch up

    Not bad but very beatable didn't bring in players i needed quick enough at beginning of season as you need them registered for Europe pretty early

    Shouldn't of rotated team in Dutch Cup and shouldn't of waited for ever trying to bring in Bergkamp and Laudrup

    That's what i thought lol

    But i suppose Ajax were a huge giant back then apart from a few elite clubs in Europe you can pretty much sign any player managing them back in 97/98.
