    Apparently Bayern has expressed interest in Dynamo Dresden center back, Kevin Ehlers. He just recently turned 19, and is listed at 1.86 m tall. Seems a bit redundant to Lukas Mai, imho, and would appear to be surplus to requirements – considering Mai and a potential promotion for Bright Arrey-Mbi – in FC Bayern II.

    Igor Matanovic has been on fire lately.

    The St.Pauli striker is adapting well with DFB U17, scored 2 goals in 2 starts during Algarve Cup last week.

    and now he’s already playing in A-Jugend Nord at 16 .. scored 9 goals in 7 games for U17 and now 2 goals and 1 assist in 2 U19 games.

    Igor Matanovic is getting along very well with the DFB teammates, already 1,94m tall...

    Only injuries will stop Matanovic. He is rather injury prone in his early career

    eh wth, let's post about U17-U19.

    U17
    X2: Sanogo (04), Wollschlager, Kloppel
    X1: Cabrera, Arnold, Mellado, Gedikli, Kozlyuk, Kondziella, Castrop, Suchanek, Fadeev, Diehl (04), K.Klein, Wallmeier, El-Zein, Mata, Stuttgen, Kuhn, Biehl, Ambach, Kammradt, Yilidirim (04), Rolke, Koppener (double digits), Polat, Eickhoff, Klein, Haffke, Berg, L.Wagner, Sothen, Calhanoglu, Milutinovic,
    Kabadayi (04), Herold, Fahrner, Kurt (comeback from injury), Farouk, Muteba,
    Drakas, Hoppe, Feldmann, Trujillo, Kraft, Serdarusic, Tunc, Fazlija, Jessen, Kukanda, Kankowski, Grimbs (04), Leipold (04), Deniz, Kuschka

    -05 Ibrahimovic made his U17 debut for Bayern U17 in XI playing 77 min.:eek:;)
    -04 Lore made his U17 debut for his new club Bayer U17 playing 3 min.

    U19
    X5: OBM vs league rivals Hoff.:eek:
    X3: Moukoko, takes tally to 29 goals....
    X2: Samardzic, Obuz, Ischdonat (scored 3 in last 2 games), Meikis, Zalli,
    Matanovic (03), Ruckert (double digits)
    X1: Mika, Niehues, Wolf, Sarpei, Fesenmeyer, Kemper, Hartwig, Tasdemir,
    Heisterkamp, Schwirten, Tillman, Stark, Mollo, Portella, Sauer, Hollerbach,
    Schumann, Hawkins, Cevis, Kudala, Kohlbacher, Civeja, Boras, Breithaupt,
    Sausen, Varivoda, Blum, Mirchev, Lang, Beifus, Jastremski, Dursun,
    M'Boungou (2 goals in 2 games since his comeback from injury), Martel, Wosz,
    Woltemade, Nankishi, Grosser, Harres, Mertens, Spreitzer

    -03 Wirtz made his Bayer U19 debut as his club trashed Schalke 4-0. Elgert seems to indicate that Wirtz dominated his whole team!!!

    “He did what he wanted with everyone."

    -OBM scoring 5 goals, although Klein is injured+ Calhanoglu/Geschill didn't play and for some reason John and Agha started on the bench no idea why. I said it in the past had he played all season in U19 he would already be 20+ goals and lead the scoring table. He's too good for U19, Bayern using him due to it being a key game. Tillman also picked up 3 assists but only one was a direct assist, one was accidental and the other one is long distance ball followed by OBM going solo and burning players. OBM also drew a PK which saw him almost going by all of the defense solo, lol. Bayern had 6 03s in there with 5/6 being in XI, Rhein, Gunther, Herold (back from injury), Bruckner, Musiala, Mbi too.


    let's hope OBM, Tillman etc make their 1BL debuts this season.

    -Matanovic on a roll, scoring everywhere he goes from dfb to U17 to U19. According to TM he went from 1.90m to 1.94m.
    -there were bunch missing but won't list them all.


    In other news,
    -Some Hertha updates, 02-Dirkner and 02-Dardai (clean sheet) have both already made their RL debuts. Saw mention that Dirkner did very well in his 1 game. 00 GK Klatte one of the interesting 00 GK is currently 5 clean sheets in 6 RL games!!!

    -From Bremen themselves, Woltemade is headed for pro contract soon enough.
    -From H96, all reports are that Kocak wants to give pro contract to both Stehle who scored on his pro debut and Gudra.

    Hannover 96 is back on talents. After goal scorer Simon Stehle (18), injured Mick Gudra (19), who was operated on his knee on Monday, is also to receive a professional contract. 96 coach Kocak wants to "create value for the club" with the young players.

    What was it worth 3-1 in Fürth? Gold, for 96 and 18-year-old debut goal scorer Simon Stehle. Coach Kenan Kocak praised Stehle: “Hats off and respect. Not just because of his goal, but also how he did it tactically. ”96 is now following the path of youth. Stehle should be a professional next week, with a contract until 2022. "It is important to help such young players to the next step and thus create value for the club," said Kocak. But not only Stehle, but Mick Gudra should also get its value.

    Gudra had been operated on on a torn cruciate ligament in Cologne on Monday. "We want to give him a sign," says 96 boss Martin Kind. "The sporting assessment is such that he has a good perspective with us."

    Simon Stehle in the middle: These are the 25 youngest goal scorers in the history of Hannover 96

    From the summer with the professionals
    The injury in training hit Gudra hard, the cruciate ligament tore, but the knee suffered no further damage. The plan: The 19-year-old should take part in the preparation again with the professionals in the summer. Before that he becomes a professional, while the rehab pays the statutory accident insurance (VBG). If Gudra returns healthy, 96 transfers the salary.

    Glad for Gudra!!! And all but confirmed that these 3 players are getting pro contracts.

    I think it's dumb not for Bayern but for Ehlers, although it's only Bayern who's interested so far. He's currently unfit but when fit he's a starter in 2BL and one of the only + for the struggling club. He should move to another 2BL club or maybe even 1BL. Should not go down to 3rd Liga to play Bayern II. If Dynamo get relegated and he doesn't leave he could just stay put and play 3rd Liga with his club anyways.

    seems to me it's because Mai is likely headed on loan next season so you need replacement for him in II. Although yeah just up Mbi....

    speaking of Mai............Pavard and Boa are both suspended for next week's Paderborn game.:whistling:

    and on another OBM note, Brazil who have tried to poach him over past 2 years can f-off.:p

    -Bayern U19 coach and ex Bayern 1st team player Demichelis on OBM.

    "Oli is a great talent and has shown his qualities," U19 coach Martin Demichelis was quoted on the club's homepage: "It is important that the boys, whether they are professionals, amateurs or us, go full throttle. Then they will take the next steps in their development."

    will be curious to see how Bayern plan with him.

    -also at this point, Bochum have 0 reason to bother with 01-Dautaj when they got 02-Hartwig instead.

    -wonder if Matanovic could be 1st 03 to make pro debut? Had he stayed in U17 all season then no. But playing U19 and do so well. If Pauli have some irrelevant 2BL games end of season could be possible. Wirtz and some of the Bayern U19 players could be other possibilities. Although issue with Bayern 03s is that if Bayern U19 play U19 Championship, it means that none of them could make it and II is more likely the 1st team focus. Same for Wirtz if Bayer is fighting Europe spots to the end, he's unlikely to be given chance this season.

    wonder if they integrate Dursun next season and from 2021-onwards Matanovic, when his pro contract kicks in. Dursun made the 1st team bench a few times but unused, so they do rate him.

    said it months ago, 2BL clubs seem to have more and more interesting CFs in their ranks. Much better than in the past.

    Talking of OBM, what's the situation with Brazil at this point? I see he was called up by their u20's recently, after his agent made noise about him being fast tracked to the German u21 squad. Which country is he most likely to choose?

    Brazil have been trying to poach him for 2 years now. Last season is when his agent made a huge fuss about how a Bayern U19 player should be called up to U21, ignoring that U21=pro levels as in 1BL-2BL. His agent was just being a dick and trying to force Germany to do things they don't do. And he started to say if Germany aren't careful, Brazil could succeed in poaching him. His agent said all of this after the Brazil reports came out about them wanting to lure him to their side.

    Fastforward to 2019 he was called up to Brazil U20 in December although he didn't go.

    so far he's still with dfb and we call him up to Germany U19. Important for next month's qualifiers The real OBM question is where does he end up in Summer-onwards both for dfb and Bayern who rates him highly.

    although it's important to note, that OBM feels more Brazilian (mother) than German (father and he's born and raised and dev in Germany).
    "I feel more Brazilian, but sometimes my German side comes through. The technique is perhaps more Brazilian."

    lol he sounds like a player who's skills/technique is Brazilian mixed in with German traits like mentality!

    on his role models
    “Cristiano Ronaldo's mentality. I like his style very much. In terms of football, Mbappé and Neymar. "

    so for now he's with us but we need to be careful. It makes sense that Brazil is interested in a highly rated player who plays like a Brazilian and feels more Brazilian and on top of it all he idolizes Neymar.....and if he manages to make Bayern 1st team for realz than a free young Bayern player.

    although if you look at all the Brazilians Young attackers who are in Barcelona, Real Madrid and all the ones that are still in Brazil who attract interest throughout Europe. If he's smart he should stick it out with Germany. Competition isn't as big compared to Brazil.

    also if he switches to Brazil it's permanent too, as he's already provisionally capped by Germany. If he's smart, don't go to Brazil unless it's Senior NT call up. Switching at youth levels is dumb.

    so would say for now more likely with dfb. Although OBM is a player who will force you to always call him up until you can permanently cap tie him.

    seems confirmed that 97-Neuhaus who scored yesterday is either Olympics or Euro.

    In 2018 Florian Neuhaus (22) rose to the Bundesliga with Fortuna. With his 3rd goal of the season and a template, he was instrumental in the 4-1 victory in Gladbach to shoot Düsseldorf a little further towards the descent ...

    The fact is: Neuhaus is currently in a gala form - which makes it more and more a focus for the national team!

    Neuhaus: “Of course it is a dream of every kicker to play in the national team once. I already played the U21 European Championship last year, that's something very special. In summer there are two wonderful events with Olympia and the EM. And I'm sure I'll be with one. ”

    Coach Marco Rose (43) does not rule out that this will be the European Championship: “I trust Flo to do so in perspective. He also has a phone - if the national coach calls, he may answer it. Florian only has limited control over whether he calls ... ”

    damn, seems like 05-Ibrahimovic who skipped U16 and jumped to U17 turned 14 in December, like 2 months ago.:eek:

    for comparison, last season when 04-Kabadayi played up 2 age groups he already turned 15.

    Noah Katterbach has a lateral ankle sprain and should be out for 4-6 weeks.

    It’s a moderate injury, nothing too bad though.

    Bayern II trash Hallescher 6-1 and moves to 8th place and 9 pts safety. All without OBM or Dajaku who were both absent. The win all but seals Bayern II's likely safety this season. And 4th consecutive win too.

    -Defense: Fruchtl and Mai both looked good and the goal conceded wasn't on either of them. Mai is really defensive chief! Few dangerous moments but nothing that was dangerous and Mai saved the team from conceding a goal in 1st half. Bayern were poor in 1st half but great in 2nd half.....Yilmaz with 2 assists cementing himself as RB 1st choice and deserves Turkey U21 call up. Putting him in XI made a huge difference compared to 1st half of the season. Kohn on the other end was decent.

    -Midfield: 01-Stiller looks great in DM and plays huge role in that 4 consecutive win.He also picked up an assist to Zirkzee goal. Once again as I've been saying, majority of Zirkzee goals in U19-II are from Stiller assists. Very smart quick ball that went above the head of all the defense to the free Zirkzee. Still same for Zirkzee in the box :thumbsup: and outside the box :thumbsdown:.

    Seb Hoeness praises Stiller pre-game.
    The 18-year-old was on the pitch for 90 minutes in all three games
    Hoeneß praises Angelo Stiller: "He is already very mature"

    With the fourth win in a row, Stiller and his teammates would set a new record for FC Bayern II in the 3rd division this evening.

    All three games to date have been won; after 42 goals in the first 20 games, there were only two in 2020. Regardless of the two prominent winter loans, Nicolas Kühn (from Ajax) and returnee Wooyeong Jeong (Freiburg), an unexpected protagonist played in the foreground with Angelo Stiller. The only 18-year-old midfielder, who was mainly used for the A-Juniors in the back series, was on the pitch for 90 minutes in all three games and did his job so well that coach Sebastian Hoeneß gave him special praise: " He is already very mature. ”In addition, according to Hoeneß, Stiller was“ clear in the head and quickly adapted the higher intensity in the 3rd division ”. With the fourth win in a row, Stiller and his teammates would set a new record for FC Bayern II in the 3rd division this evening. This would no longer surprise anyone.
    https://www.tz.de/sport/fc-bayern/h...iller-er-spielt-schon-sehr-reif-13543662.html

    -Attack/Subs: Kuhn and Arp came on as subs. Kuhn came on the 71st min and Arp came on the 80th min. And once again both looked good, not sure why they always play sub only, feels EXTREMELY wasteful. LOL, that Jeong on loan and Kuhn on loan BOTH looked better than Singh (overrated).

    Kuhn scored off a Arp assist!!! Kuhn now at 1 goal and 1 assist in 4 games playing a measly 70 min, so goal/assist every 35 min. His goal was a tap in where Arp did all the work. I thought he looked promising once again and that he should have dribbled more, it's perfect chance for that. At one point he wasn't far off from going by 3 players. It's annoying to say but it feels like Kuhn really is seen as sub option since all of his tools are perfect for either XI or sub. Although I want him to start more.

    Arp had a fantastic assist where he ran just ahead of a defender forcing himself on the guy to get the ball in midfield wide and then instead of falling down, continued with the ball into the box drew in players for the cross to the easy tap in for on rushing Kuhn. 2nd consecutive game where Arp is crucial for goals towards end of the game. He was very physical throughout his 10 mins, like almost every Arp action was him getting physical with other players. That's good for any CF who wants to play 1BL, especially since CF usually plays vs 2 CBs+GK. Created a nice chance for Jeong but he blew it. He really looked like a player trying to prove himself after being out for half a season. Still has cask on his hand, wonder if that plays role in his limited game time? Last thing you want his to reinjure a not fully healed hand.

    also 01-Waidner makes his 1st unused bench for II since July. Seems likely should make his pro debut this season. He could be seen as Kohn's replacement next season. Waidner can play LB and RB.

    -seeing again the Arp assist in replay, he actually ran from the mid[point line of the field and outrun and outmuscled that last guy to get into the box. The last defender had the head start too.

    -seems like 03 CF Schmid who scored on his U19 debut for Koln U19 pre-break, also assisted over the weekend in his 2nd U19 game too.

    -More on 03-Wirtz who got praised by Schalke U19 coach Elgert. He also picked up assist on his U19 debut.

    New signing Florian Wirtz, who had only trained twice with his new team after moving from 1. FC Köln to Leverkusen, did his part with a strong performance on the left side of the attack. Trainer Patrick Weiser praised his ball safety and his good duel behavior.

    01-Engel of Frankfurt U19 headed to Freiburg II seems to be potential 1st team prospect. Freiburg also has 99-GL Itter.

    Eintracht's talent
    SC Freiburg brings Frankfurt's angel in summer - Pezzaiuoli: "Should be Günter's successor"
    Marco Pezzaiuoli, Technical Director at Eintracht Frankfurt's performance center, confirmed the change from Jacob Engel (19, photo) to SC Freiburg in summer compared to the “Frankfurter Rundschau”. "He is a top performer on my left, is now invited to the national team and has signed a contract in Freiburg because they see him as a perspective and he is to succeed Christian Günter," said the SBU official.

    The left-back has been trained at the Hesse since 2016. "We currently have no second team in which he can develop. That’s problematic. With Jacob Engel it is the case that he can mature at a good level in the second team in Freiburg, ”continues Pezzaiuoli.
    https://www.transfermarkt.de/sc-fre...ter-nachfolger-werden-ldquo-/view/news/354431

    was wondering where he'd end up since it's obviously not going to be Frankfurt.

    Long but relevant interview!


    "An idol is not born every day"
    Marco Pezzaiouli, Technical Director at the Eintracht Frankfurt performance center, talks about problems in youth and talents that don't make it to the top.

    Marco Pezzaiouli, 51, works around the clock for the talents of Eintracht Frankfurt am Riederwald. The technical director is not only a trainer for senior youth, but also a strategist in the background, who should create the framework that more highly gifted people can make the leap to Eintracht Frankfurt professionals. The Mannheim native also sees a responsibility towards the players who do not make it to the professional. "The worst thing for me is when a child doesn't play," he says, and reports of conversations with mothers until midnight. “I am involved in every commitment. I see every little player who should play with us. I now sleep four to five times a week in Frankfurt and no longer drive home to Heidelberg. It's a seven-day week. "


    Mr. Pezzaiuoli, Eintracht Frankfurt has just given youth player Fynn Otto a professional contract. We really hope that the young man, 17 years old, is not only there to meet a quota again.
    No, that was a purely athletic decision. Just like Felix Irorere, who is currently injured at the knee but will also make his way to the professionals. They clearly belong to the top central defenders of Germany in their age group and have enormous potential. You can both play A-Jugend for another year, these are players with great prospects. The decision was made in consultation with the sports management and the head coach of the soccer AG, of course we also had the structure of the professional team in mind.

    In what way?
    They should be introduced one by one at the top. We have a young player in defense with Evan Ndicka, Tuta is on loan, Almamy Touré will be April 24, Martin Hinteregger is middle-aged, and then come David Abraham and Makoto Hasebe, who are a bit older. So let's shoot two boys with great potential who can find their way in there. You can do it, I am absolutely convinced.

    How satisfied are you with the performance of the A-youth? Your team is sixth.
    It's about the way we act, and that's good. We play really good football. In the end there was unfortunately only a 2: 2 in Ingolstadt despite their playful superiority. The higher quality had also confirmed Ingolstadt's trainer. We play attractive football, no long balls, we have solutions, we are creative, but we still have a strong mentality. We defend forward, are active, we are very high and attack the opponent in sixteens. That doesn't just apply to the U19.

    So has this line been unified?
    Right. Together we developed a uniform game concept for Eintracht Frankfurt and created a guide. It starts with the U10 and ends with the U19, the training is similar to professional training, even for the little ones. I think that also fits Eintracht and Frankfurt. We stand for diversity, just as the city and the region live, also for openness, creativity, innovation, modernity. That's how we want to play football. These are our values and part of philosophy.

    Eintracht Frankfurt: No running without a ball Which system do you practice?
    A 4-3-3. Or a 3-4-3. We interpret both systems very aggressively.

    Are the trainers specially trained?
    Yes, we attach great importance to this. There are also feedback discussions at the beginning of each week, where we also reflect on the training. And until the U14 there are no groups larger than four against four.

    Do you already see success?
    In any case. Our players are ball-safe, have the ball on their feet from the first second of training, there is no running without a ball.

    Do you look at all units of the youth teams?
    Yes, I try to see as much as possible. It is a bit more difficult this season because I am very busy with the senior youth. But we have someone who supports us and me, who works with the trainers and trains them. We want to position ourselves better and better in future in order to work in a more targeted and individual manner.

    How is the exchange with those responsible at the AG?
    Very good, I'm 90 percent at Riederwald, but often at the stadium in the morning. There is then a permanent, fruitful exchange with the trainer team, with Fredi Bobic, Bruno Hübner and Ben Manga, that is very constructive and works well. There is mutual trust, that is very important.

    Why are so few players making the leap to the professional?
    Of course we would also like it to be more. But we also had talents: Luca Waldschmidt was here, the Itter twins, also Marc-Oliver Kempf, Sonny Kittel or Cenk Tosun. Maybe the time hadn't come at that time, or maybe the philosophy wasn't right. There are certainly different reasons for this. It is currently the case that sooner or later we will have to make it possible for more youth players to train with the professionals. When the new campus is ready in the coming year,it is a consideration that the A-youth could move there.

    Are there any players in the current A-junior year who could make it?
    We have good guys with us this year who may not make the leap into professional football, but in a year or two we will. We have, for example, a top player in Abdulkerim Cakar by storm. Jabez Makanda, also a striker, has also proven his qualities. Or Fynn Otto. We have very good players, we have quality and we are on the right track. I'll give you another example from our ranks.

    Here you go...
    Jacob Engel. He is a top performer on my left, is now invited to the national team and has signed a contract in Freiburg, because they see him in perspective and he is to succeed Christian Günter.

    All right, but then why doesn't he stay with Eintracht Frankfurt?
    We currently have no second team in which he can develop further. That’s problematic. With Jacob Engel it is the case that he can mature at a good level in the second team in Freiburg.

    Here we are with the next hot topic, the abolished U23, which is supposed to be launched again. Did something happen in any form?
    No, topics are being considered. Let's take a look at Holland. There they abolished the U19 and are playing a U18 and U21 league. In England as well. Germany has to think about something there. I think the junior teams of a Bundesliga club are not allowed to play in the Bundesliga if the club doesn't have a second team. In my opinion, the clubs should be obliged to do so

    Then Eintracht would be out of the Bundesliga with the U17 and U19.
    We are therefore considering what we can change. We also have a social responsibility for each of these youth players. We train here, but for whom do we train? The boys leave the NLZ and have high hopes. But there is only one out of 1,000 players who make it straight into a Bundesliga team.

    But what are the specific options for Eintracht Frankfurt if the rules of the game are not changed and a second team is not admitted to the Hessenliga. A team in the district league makes no sense.
    So it makes no sense. The question then is, do we wait to see if something new comes from the DFB or do we take action ourselves? We have already collected some ideas internally and discussed how it could go on. Now you have to see which is the right one for us. There are already options. It is only important that there is a substructure. At Eintracht Frankfurt we have created a higher level and got good quality players. We have to offer them a future. And again: the future is not to have to turn a talent into a professional player immediately. For everyone it is important to find the right and individual solution on the long way and to accompany them as best as possible. These Götzes and Havertz 'are not born every day, they are one in 1000. But we have to create a framework for the other 999.

    What makes foreign countries better than we do in Germany, why have nations like England, Belgium, Holland run so far?
    They have different training concepts, differently organized game rounds. Cooperation with schools is often better. The players in Holland train in the morning, then go to school and train again in the afternoon. You will be at home at 5pm, 6pm, our players at 11pm. It is a completely different rhythm of life. The boys are already asked a lot: school, school supervision, homework, training, hardly any free time. The boys also need space to live.

    Was the training too tactical in the past?
    I guess so. There were phases when 3-5-2 was played. Some association teams played 4-4-2, and everyone suddenly spoke of space coverage. The key is to encourage the individual player. A striker has to do more repetitions, shoot more on goal and move around in his room, assert himself and finish. I see a lot of young coaches sitting on the laptop all day, making a match plan and analyzing the opponent. I don't look at the enemy. We go to the court and play how we want to play. We never follow the enemy. It's about my team's own quality.

    Alex Meier, as an example, trained in old age for himself.
    This is very important. We have a very clear plan there. Individual training takes place on Monday and Tuesday in all teams - down to the U15.

    What did the teams train beforehand?
    You played seven against seven. In the game four against four more ball contacts, the boys now have significantly more and have to make more decisions, then it makes sense that this makes more sense. We have taken our U10 to the U13 out of the game round. In these age groups there are only performance comparisons and tournaments, so that the boys get more minutes of play. For example, 25 or 35 minutes play every 100 minutes instead of twice, or some players are substituted for only ten minutes. In the U14 that would be worth considering in my opinion. Our little boys play in the Hessen League against much older and bigger children, so there are years in between. If they lose, they worry if they are worse. But they are not, they are just not that far physically.

    What has changed in sighting since you were there. It used to be said: No player from the area should go through our fingers. Is that still the case or do you have a broader view?
    First and foremost we have to have the guys from Frankfurt. That is the be-all and end-all. There is enough potential here. We now have competitors such as Dortmund, Gladbach, Hanover, Wolfsburg, Bremen, Mainz. Mainz alone have eight to ten buses that the boys pick up from Frankfurt on the U10. We have an agreement with Mainz that we won't poach the players from each other, so the sighting starts earlier and earlier. We have a larger radius, so we look to Aschaffenburg, Mannheim, Heidelberg, Kaiserslautern, Koblenz, Marburg or Gießen. But that is also difficult. We have a U16 player who gets on the bus at 4pm and is at home at 11pm. You also have to consider whether this makes sense for development. At Mainz, six or seven players from Frankfurt play in the U19. Our aim must be for these guys to play for us. We are now also competing for great talent from abroad, but you have to ask yourself whether it makes sense and is healthy. Because the sums that are called there are already insane.

    What does your budget look like?
    We have support from the AG. The budget has grown, the salaries for players and coaches have been increased. We added new trainers, expanded structures and deep communication, and also invested in sports technology and analysis. In comparison to other Bundesliga teams, we are still in the lower third. We grow slowly and healthily. It is always related to the success of the professionals.

    Where do you see screws that can be turned?
    Training coaches, maybe expanding the coaching teams, so you could work even more individually with the players. Andreas Ibertsberger is introduced to the A-youth. He is a top trainer, especially when it comes to individual support. The defenders in particular are getting better.

    Do you have a coach who takes care of the strikers specifically?
    We had one from Ajax Amsterdam in the summer that was there for the first two months, but it didn't work out logistically. If Alex Meier now said he was in the mood, he would be happy to join in and make the young players better (laughs).

    Will you continue to be the A-youth coach next year?
    No decision has yet been made. I am in talks with some trainers, some contracts are expiring. We have one or two youth coaches who have developed enormously.

    How is the collaboration with the new NLZ boss Andreas Möller going?
    Cooperation is good. It is important that the association has a personality like Andreas Möller in its ranks. He is very positive for our image and can help us enormously with his many years of experience. Everyone has their clear tasks, we exchange ideas well.

    so from that they
    1-Really rate 02 CB Otto and 02 CB Irorere who both have pro contracts and that their pro contracts aren't Bullshit. They seem like to want to integrating them in future.
    2-The players they rated the most are
    00-Cetin, N.Stendera
    01-Engel (leaving), Makanda, Cakar
    02-Otto and Irorere
    Nothing new in there.
    3-Been saying it for ages, school and training is not well optimized in Germany
    4-Alex Meier might be CF trainer
    5-Deal with Mainz not to poach
    6-II very important
    7-"There are certainly different reasons for this. It is currently the case that sooner or later we will have to make it possible for more youth players to train with the professionals. When the new campus is ready in the coming year,it is a consideration that the A-youth could move there."

    that is something he complained about in past how the current campus isn't close at all to the 1st team. So players don't train with 1st team disconnect.

    according to Bild, 99-Maina and 97-Teuchert are both on Olympics contender list. Maina was also seen as the best player on the field in the 1-1 draw of H96 vs top team HSV, where he happened to assist Teuchert's goal.

    -Maina has provided 5 assists in last 3 games.
    -Teuchert has scored 3 goals in last 3 games, one in each game. If Teuchert continues his run already at 5 goals for the season and 2 assists for player who had injury issues. Does he go back to 1BL? He's only on loan from Schalke.

    always found it annoying that Maina is playing 2BL due to relegation. He's better than that when fit and never looked out of place in 1BL and other clubs were interested. There are numerous 2BL players who are all but likely moving to higher level in Summer.

    speaking of 97-Neuhaus vast majority of sites had him in best XI of the matchday for the weekend in 1BL.

    on some other note, feel bad for 97-lyoha IF FD gets relegated as he's showing himself to be doing well in 2BL after his 2nd consecutive loans to 2BL and imagine his parent club also gets relegated lol that sucks ass. While his teammate 98-Ozcan also on loan to Kiel is way too influential there let's hope he moves up in Summer. Ozcan is likely strong Olympics contender too.

    01-Stehle signs pro contract! Let's hope Gudra is next!


    AFTER DREAM DEBUT IN FÜRTH: SIMON STEHLE SIGNS PROFESSIONAL CONTRACT AT 96
    Hannover 96 binds Simon Stehle in the long term. The 18-year-old attacker, who was trained at the 96 Academy, has signed a professional contract with a term of two years until June 30, 2022.

    Simon Stehle signs until 2022.
    18 goal participations in 13 missions
    The son of a Colombian mother and a German father, who was born in Valladolid in Spain and grew up on the Canary Island of Gran Canaria, came to the 96 boarding school in Eilenriede in the summer of 2017 after intermediate stops in the offspring of Atlético Madrid and UD Levante. In the 96 Academy, Stehle developed steadily in the U17, then in the U19. In the current season he scored 14 goals in 13 appearances in the A-Junior Bundesliga. He put on four more hits.

    Gerhard Zuber, sporting director of Hannover 96: "Simon is a really good boy who recommended himself for a contract in the U19 with outstanding performance and many scorer points. For his age he is physically very far. In terms of perspective, he can play with us very good for its speed and dynamism. "
    Michael Tarnat, head of the 96 Academy: "Simon has simply earned it because of his achievements in the past two years. We are pleased that we were able to transfer another player from the academy to the professional field."

    Simon Stehle: "I am very happy to have signed my first professional contract at Hannover 96. I owe a lot to this club and I am very happy to be able to take the next step in my career here. I hope I can make it through hard Work experience many beautiful moments here and I am really looking forward to the coming time. "

    Kuntz now has another job!!!

    Kuntz also used as a striker coach for U teams
    Berlin (AP) - Under-21 coach Stefan Kuntz should also take care of the training of junior strikers at the German Football Association (DFB).

    At the winter camp of the U16 and U17 teams in La Manga, the former goalscorer was already undergoing special training with the offensive players, according to information from "Sport Bild".

    "As the DFB, we go ahead with our U-national teams and involve special striker training from time to time in the international matches," said DFB director Oliver Bierhoff. The goal is to train top strikers again in Germany.

    The good experience with world champion Miroslav Klose also played a role in the idea with the special training, who was sometimes used as a striker coach by national coach Joachim Löw. At the next international phase in March there will be special units again.

    Huth hired by dfb to be U21 defensive coach.

    Huth hardness for young DFB players
    Kuntz stunned by the Torunarigha case

    Munich - Robert Huth returns to the DFB as a defensive coach to promote U21 talent. Most recently, he settled with the soccer business.

    Just a few days ago, he made tough payments with the football business, and by March he will be back in the old realm - albeit in a new role.

    This refers to ex-professional Robert Huth, who will join the coaching team of the U21 national team as a defensive expert from next month. This was announced by head coach Stefan Kuntz on Tuesday as part of a DFB media round in Dortmund.

    Curious: The 35-year-old former defender recently told Tagesspiegel: "I hardly watch football anymore." And further: "In the meantime I have the feeling: I just have to get away from football. At the end of my career I was just fed up. Probably it is also a defiant reaction."

    These words have not been hidden from Kuntz, jokingly explained that he said to him on the phone: "It would be good if he did not deliver the quote in the first training session."

    At any rate, the DFB has a clear plan with the 19-time former international, who can also prove 322 competitive appearances in the Premier League.

    "I told him that he should tell me which units and exercises made him feel great and which ones brought him something. Both in defensive duels, which is the main focus, but also in the game structure," said Kuntz.

    Furthermore, Huth should instill confidence in the DFB talents, teach them how to avoid duels or sometimes provoke. "All things that only someone who can do it," says Kuntz. The contact to the "Berlin Wall", as it was once called in England, came about through Joti Chatzialexiou, the sports director of the national teams.

    Surprise master in England
    Born in Berlin, he used to be a huge talent, never played in the Bundesliga himself, but moved to Chelsea from the regional league Union Berlin at the age of 16 in 2001 at the age of 16. In 2004, Huth made his surprising debut as a 20-year-old and with little game practice at Chelsea - under the then national coach Jürgen Klinsmann. He was also a participant in the 2006 World Cup. Ten years later, Huth was the English surprise champion with Leicester City. Previously, he won two championship titles with Chelsea (2005, 2006).

    The stations of Middlesbrough, Stoke City and Leicester followed after 2006, before he ended his career in July 2018.

    He has been studying "Sporting Directorship" in England since September 2019 and in a few weeks he is teaching the DFB youngsters the trick.

    "Robert will be able to explain that to them," says Kuntz, "and if not, he will show them."

    On Arp from Seitz, sports director of Bayern youth.

    First goal for Bayern - does Arp start now?
    Fiete Arp celebrated his first goal participation of the season in the 6: 1 (2: 1) success of FC Bayern München II against Halleschen FC. With the assist to Nicolas Kühns 5: 1, the 20-year-old comes a little closer to the desired breakthrough. So far, Arp has not been able to fulfill the hopes placed in him. It was only last summer that the young talent was hired for three million euros.
    "The Assist is a confirmation of his hard work. When Fiete plays in the U23, I always notice that he is on the pitch with heart and passion every second," praised Holger Seitz, Sports Director at the Bayern Campus, 20th -Years after the win against Halle at "Sport1".

    Arp plays "football with joy", Seitz continues. You have not seen this joy on the pitch very often in the past few months.

    Injuries throw Arp back
    After moving to Bayern, the former hamburger initially went through the professional preparation in the USA, but by the end of the first half of the season he was only twice in the Munich squad. The striker did not get time.

    Also in the 3rd league for the second Bayern team, Arp played just 88 minutes. A scaphoid fracture and an arm injury came at the worst possible time for the talent. Other youngsters like Joshua Zirkzee made a name for themselves instead.

    Arp continues to hope for a breakthrough
    Arp himself remains confident. "It is still my goal to develop my place here," said the 20-year-old at the beginning of the year at "Sport1": "Our squad enables young players to have such great opportunities as perhaps rarely before at Bayern. "

    Working with Hansi Flick also gives Arp hope. "Since he was previously an assistant coach, he has also built a closer connection to the young players, especially to me," said the youngster:

    "I often trained with him in pairs when I wasn't able to train with the team. He recently made it clear to me that I should bring calm and that I shouldn't put myself under the pressure."Arp,

    Nevertheless, Seitz emphasized the "incredibly high quality" of the former junior international. "You saw that again against Halle. After his substitution, he was in the game from the first second and called everything up. We are all happy for him that he had this sense of achievement. How he prepared the goal was outstanding . "

    Arp also has "no star air at all. How he cheers with the other boys, everything comes from the heart, you can see that. That also says something about his great character."

    https://www.eurosport.de/fussball/3...-kommt-jetzt-die-wende_sto7671575/story.shtml

    even Seb Hoeness praised Arp highly last week saying that his future is 1BL. A lot of the things Seitz is saying about Arp can really be seen on the pitch. Let's hope he continues to dev well and goes upwards from here on out.

    lol he's not former International, you can't call up an injured player....

    speaking of Kuntz I think it's cool that he's involved in dfb CF training. He's 2 times 1BL top scorer, where he was involved in over 200 1BL goals. Also won Euro 96 where he played big role in England game in SF. So even has tourney experience as an ex player.

    majority of U21 CFs mention when interviewed at how he helped them too.

    98-Friede who made his German pro debut in XI in 2BL over weekend. He played in Belgian 1st division last season but never higher than RL in Germany.

    After Stefan Aigner waved off due to injury. “On Friday, his problems in the back broke out again. Unfortunately, the pain radiates into the adductors, ”explained Rehm. It is unclear whether veteran Aigner will be available in the home game against Greuther Fürth on Friday. The head coach was satisfied with the debut of Friede: "He was right in there, played three or four good balls." Friede presented exemplary for Tobias Schwede in the twelfth minute - but the team-mate forgave lightly. “All in all, of course, Sidney has to be even more robust, especially on the defensive. He still has to get used to this league, that's clear. "

    he was deployed on AM instead of CM.
    Friede, felt “very comfortable in the tens position. I'm not one who gets too excited. I approached the game like everyone else ”. The reason that Rehm brought Phillip Tietz for peace after 67 minutes was mainly due to the fact that the coach wanted to set new impulses after the deficit. It cannot be ruled out that Friede in the relegation battle will often be in the starting eleven in the future. The 21-year-old has recommended himself for other tasks. And hinted that he can certainly be an asset with his enthusiasm and creativity.

    Speaking of debuts, 99-T.Tillman picked up 2 assists in his debut for 2BL Furth in a 4-2 loss to 1st place AB. As a sub player too. Not pro debut since he played 6 1BL games for FCN where he bombed. Still young and door to 1BL is not closed, although would think 2021-onwards is more likely than this Summer.
