Most Ajax Unworthy Lineups

Overview of the most unworthy lineups of Ajax matches

There are many different, very subjective, ways to determine whether a lineup is Ajax worthy or not. We have chosen one based on the common assumptions that typical Ajax lineups have more focus on players coming through the youth system, rather than players who are transferred to Ajax at a later age

We subtract a number of matches we typically expect players to have played for Ajax 1 based on their age from the actual played official matches

We dont have the information complete concerning at which age all players joined Ajax, otherwise a method based on this information would likely be more suitable.

However the effect is the same, mainly matches with lineups with several (recently) transferred older players are considered Ajax unworthy.
