I am from Holland, and i'm a true fan of Ajax. Players like Van der Vaart, Mido and Maxwell are really good, but also Ajax got players that can ruin a match. Example: Nikos Machlas. This Greek scores some goals, but falls everytime when he feels a defender in his back. A 'Schwalbe' like the dutch whould say. Also Zlatan Ibrahimovic isn't quite a worldstar either. Huge wage-demands but results? None. Want to see the best players of the dutch Eredivisie? Here's my top 5: 1. Rafael van der Vaart - Ajax 2. Shinji Ono - Feyenoord 3. Maxwell Schurrer Andrade- Ajax 4. Ahmed 'Mido' Hossam - Ajax 5. Mark van Bommel - PSV Eindhoven

Gee, this Maxwell is a great winger. Reminds me a bit of Zico and other Brazilian greats like Gregorio silva and Wamberto. Played a blinder against in the Feyernoord derby. His dribbling speed was a great joy to see in the basking sunshine of the De Kuip. Has been in the Ajax frame for a while but breaking through now. Still has a shyness in front of the goals but with age that problem will deteriate. Obviously the other people in this forum should research the player before they write a paragraph about him.

I also was amazed at the stunningly good and BRAVE performance of Maxwell, considering his personal tragedy. However...

"From what I saw ... not one Ajax player ... deserved a compliment today, except for one guy: Maxwell."

Maxwell was undoubtedly MOTM, but Bergdolmo played another excellent game in defense.

I was not at this Sunday's NAC game, and I didn't see the live TV broadcast either. All I saw were fifteen minutes of highlights.

From what I saw (and read in Bastiaan's match report) not one Ajax player (nor Ajax as a team) deserved a compliment today, except for one guy: Maxwell. This looked like his best Ajax performance so far. What a brilliant pass to Zlatan in the first half, and what a superb run and assist for Machlas' goal!

This guy has just had the toughest weeks in his young life, following the death of his brother Gustavo - and then a game like this. I'm impressed. Utmost respect for that.

A fan opened a website where everyone can express their condolances to Maxwell. He (the fan) will try to make sure Maxwell gets to see them. The adress is: http://www.condoleermaxwell.tk/

Though I am not sure any words suffice to express how sorry I am for their loss, I wish to extend my heartfelt condolences to Maxwell and to his family .

This is really sad news, published on Ajax.nl today...

Maxwell will not be available for Sunday's game at Willem II. He flew home to Brazil when he heard the terrible news that his brother, Gustavo, died in a car crash on Thursday. He was 24 years old. Maxwell was, of course, granted permission to leave Amsterdam for a while. He left on Wednesday.

My condoleances to Maxwell. Losing your brother, only 24 years old. Terrible.

Maxwell has still so much to learn, he's only 18 years old. I saw him play and he isn't so much better than Tim de Cler, I think. Their style of play is about the same. Ajax is one of the most TALENTED teams in the world, but still inexperienced though. Maxwell will develop just fine.

Raymond Ngiau dropped this question in the 'Current State of Ajax Football' thread. I figured I'd answer it here...

Ray wrote: "I'm curious; how did Maxwell do in the match against Theole ? I suspect that against an amateur side, in the downpour, he probably didin't show much of what he can do."

That's right. It's said (by himself... LOL) that he has Roberto Carlos qualities. But with so little forward pressure Tim de Cler can play like Roberto Carlos, too. Friendly games against amateurs do tell you something about the strikers. Even against amateurs, they are playing against a multitude of defenders standing in their way. A scoring chance is a scoring chance: it has to be finished. Zlatan scoring nine goals in two games (and five of the nine Ajax goals against Theole) - well, that tells you something.

But the defenders... to me, the Amsterdam Tournament is gonna be their first real testcase.
