It's very, very close to the top of world football as the results in these past 5 years have shown. Even while selling many players.

And United is an American private equity franchise, bought to be sold. In the meantime the Glazers are cashing in to the TV rights money ball.
Oh get out of it. In terms of value Ajax and Dutch football is nowhere. You're just a feeder to the big clubs in proper leagues.
Speaking of value; as we've seen in this past week theirs more to football than money (and debt laden US soccer franchises like Spurs, United, Arsenal and Liverpool). Clubs who charge their fans silly money for TV rights, tickets and shirts.

And if theirs one big club in world football it's Ajax; given the impact on youth/player development, talent scouting, playing style (Barcelona and Bayern play the way they do thanks to Ajax), former top players, coaches and managers etc. And that's even apart from the silverware.

Because Ajax of course still won more CL titles than United, City, Spurs and Arsenal combined.
Yes, but nobody cares!

...and people accuse Utd of sitting on past glories hehe !
An EL final in 2017 and CL semi-final in 2019 (which obviously given the diff. in strenght with the 1,1bn. in debt club should've been at least a final).

So strange not having a midweek game. Players must be wondering what to do with themselves!
Dirty Leeds again this weekend, can't see it being a draw given Leeds win or lose form.

They were always going to be up for it, but with what’s gone on this week and their draw against Liverpool, I’m kind of thankful there’s no crowd. Will be a tough one.

If this is true it's a strong indication that football is at the top of the cycle titght now, which is why they wanted to instigate change.

Neither will be any different. Maybe marginally better haircuts.
