The perfect way to conclude the year and head into the next. Top of the tree, injury-free and Lex on fire. Not bad at all.

Lang Moves On Deadline Day


Talent youngster Niklas Lang is set to move to Hamburger SV

• Lang has played 27 matches for the 1860 Munich Under 19’s this season
• Hamburger SV sit third on the Bundesliga 2 table with fifteen games remaining
• Fifty percent of Niklas Lang’s next transfer will go to 1860 Munich

17-year-old centre back Niklas Lang is set to move from 1860 Munich to Bundesliga 2 promotion candidates Hamburger SV for €2.3 million. Lang has yet to make his debut for 1860 Munich, spending the season with 1860 Munich Under 19’s team so far this season.

“Lang is a very physically gifted and shows great determination, said Hamburger SV manager Dieter Hecking. “1860 Munich are known for their ability to produce talented players and I know that Niklas is no exception.” he added.

“I am looking forward to developing my skills at Hamburger SV and I am excited for the future.” said Lang. “The club has a great history and I hope to be a part of the squad that sees Hamburger SV return to the Bundesliga in the future.” he added.

The transfer could not come at a worse time for 1860 Munich with current starting centre back pairing Felix Weber (suspended) and Tim Rieder (injured) currently unavailable. Aaron Berzel and Semir Gracic are expected to start in their absence.

Comments

TheLFCFan: It isn't shown statistically but it just seems we are a much better side with Lex on the field

Eoin97: Can't complain with three wins from three matches

ScottT: Lex is on fire, your defence is terrified...
Great start mate, hopefully you can earn promotion. shame Lang has gone due to the injuries and suspension, but im sure you will cope and its a great deal for you financially

That's a huge boost financially nonetheless. The clause inserted within the deal could also prove to be a very wise decision, too.

January 2020

-----

Results



Two completely opposite matches took place in January in return from the winter break for Die Löwen. To start the month, they played out a frustrating bore draw against a FC Koln side currently in second last place on the 3. Liga table.

The second fixture in January produced a match of the year candidate with a 3-2 thriller against FC Ingolstadt. After going down 2-0 at halftime, 1860 Munich managed to equal the score before FC Ingolstadt defender Bjorn Paulsen was sent off and 1860 Munich captain Felix Weber scored his first goal of the year with one-minute left in injury time to steal the victory.

-----

3. Liga




Holding a five point lead at the top of the table, 1860 Munich continue to defy expectations in 3. Liga, a sudden change in form would leave an opportunity for either FC Wurzburger Kickers or 1.FC Magdeburg.

At the bottom of the table, SV Meppen are almost certain to be relegated from the division despite fifteen games remaining in the season.

-----

Player Of The Month




Fabian Greilinger

Starting the season in the first eleven due to an injury Nico Karger, the 19-year-old Fabian Greilinger has performed well above expectations, earning himself a regular place in the starting side, seeing Karger move to the bench.

The left winger has contributed with four goals and three assists so far this season using his outstanding pace and dribbling skills to leave opposition players in his wake.

-----

Injury Report


Johann Ngounou Djayo

After picking up a virus, Johann Ngounou Djayo has been sent home to be isolated from the squad and is expected to be unavailable for the next two weeks.

Tim Rieder

1860 Munich will be without Tim Rieder for two to three weeks after damaging his ankle during training before the match against FC Ingolstadt.

-----

Fixtures



A return to a full schedule awaits 1860 Munich in February starting with a home fixture against lowly Hallescher FC before going on the road to take on KFC Uerdingen 05 and FC Carl Zeiss Jena.

The last match of the month could be a crucial one in terms of final positions on the 3. Liga table when 1860 Munich take on third placed 1.FC Magdeburg.

Comments

Trotman9165: The timing literally couldn't have been worse, it will have to be a bit of short term pain for a long term gain

ScottT: The clause was what allowed me to make the deal, knowing that if he did develop I would reap the benefits in the long run as well
The stuff of champions! To come back from 2-0 down to win against very respectable opposition in Ingolstadt requires character and real quality.

Nice little gap starting to take place at the top of the league.

February 2020

-----

Results



It was an incredible start to the February for 1860 Munich with a hattrick from Osei Owusu leading them to a dominant 5-1 victory over Hallescher FC before going on to also dismantle KFC Uerdingen 05.

The run of form went downhill from there, playing out a bore draw against FC Carl Zeiss Jena before suffering their first defeat in thirteen fixtures against promotion rivals 1. FC Magdeburg.

-----

3. Liga



The top of the 3. Liga table has seen 1.FC Kaiserslautern move into promotion contention after winning their past four games straight, currently sitting in fourth. FC Ingolstadt also had an impressive month winning three of four matches.

-----

Player Of The Month




Efkan Bekiroglu

Ever-present this season, Efkan Bekiroglu is proving to be the most consistent player outside of Osei Owusu for 1860 Munich. Leading the 3. Liga in most key passes completed, the 24-year-old has controlled the midfield every time he is on the pitch.

-----

Injury Report


Fabian Greilinger

19-year-old winger Fabian Greilinger suffered a foot injury in training which will see him miss the first match of the month against FC Hansa Rostock.

Herbert Paul

After suffering a hernia, Herbert Paul is expected to be out of action for the next one to two weeks.

-----

Fixtures



A balanced month awaits 1860 Munich, facing four mid-table teams across March while promotion competitors FC Wurzburger Kickers and 1.FC Magdeburg face a relatively easy month of fixtures with both teams not facing a team in the top half of the table.

Comments

ScottT: At the time of the result I was happy but this was one result I look back on and realise just truly how great it was.

Trotman9165: It's now just a matter of maintaining form moving forward
A tough loss to Magdeburg. A victory in that game would have put you in a fantastic position, but you continue to set the pace at the moment. If you can continue to do what you need to do, there's no need to worry. Promotion looks to be on the cards for the time being.

2020 Youth Intake

-----

Head of Youth Development Manfred Paula has introduced a new group of talented youngsters into the 1860 Munich set up, attracting players from all over the local region.

Tim Enke appears to be the best young prospect from the group, with a large number of clubs already in pursuit if the attacking midfielder.

-----

Alexander Ager


A solid prospect, Ager currently does not fit into the 1860 Munich tactical set up. He will need to be adaptable should he want to progress further at the club.



-----

Lothar Piller


Capable of playing multiple roles well in the midfield, 15-year-old Piller has strong physical attributes but still requires a bit more time focusing on the technical and mental side of his game.



-----

Tim Enke


Tim Enke is an attacking midfielder with terrific all-round talent, the 15-year-old grew up supporting Die Löwen. Currently, 1860 Munich play without an attacking midfielder, so a tactical adjustment or having Enke player deeper would be required for him to fit into the current system.



Comments

ScottT: The match against Magdeburg was incredibly frustrating but I can't complain after going undefeated for so long
A bit to catch up on as I was away.

Unfortunate to lose a talented youngster but with the money that you got in for him it could be a worthwhile deal, especially short term. The lead at the top is building which is great to see, hopefully you can see it out now.

Youth Intake has certainly been good to you with some good potential coming in especially Enke. Hopefully Ager can find a spot in the system and all three reach there potential!

At the bottom of the table, in no surprise, SV Meppen are officially the first team to be relegated from 3. Liga after an incredibly poor season.

-----

Player Of The Month




Phillipp Steinhart

After having to adapt his game to a new tactic this season, Phillipp Steinhart has come on strong at the back end of the season. Leading the 3. Liga competition in assists, the 27-year-old German has been crosser into dangerous positions as well as a constant threat in dead ball situations.

-----

Injury Report


Aaron Berzel

Aaron Berzel who has filled in at a number of positions this season is out injured with a foot problem but will be ready for the match against 1. FC Kaiserslautern.

Dennis Dressel

A calf issues will see Dennis Dressel be unavailable for the fixture against FC Wurzburger Kickers.

Comments

TheLFCFan: That is a big response haha, I was really happy with the youth that came into our program but just like with Lang, the bigger clubs will come looking
Well could you ask for two bigger fixtures to start of the month? Those games could be the difference between winning the title or falling at the final hurdle. I have faith you will pull it off!

April 2020

-----
