    Frankie de Jong was so good yesterday their isn’t even a comparison in world footy right now.
    As for Derrick Jones… might be Las Vegas Lights after all.
    He couldn’t get on the field before Jamiro. There’s no way he’s getting on the filed now.

    • Agree about de Jong. How about the other Ajax players: such a joy to watch! Come to Fado on Tuesday when the return match takes place. There will be a lot of Dutch guys cheering Ajax on.
