After a great win, it’s always good to enjoy a little Schmankerl.

Bayern amateur player Adrian Fein has been loaned to SSV Jahn Regensburg in hopes of getting the 19-year old midfielder experience in the second division. The loan will run through June 30, 2019.

Jochen Sauer, head of the FC Bayern Campus, commented on Fein’s departure:

We are convinced that Adrian will develop very well at Jahn Regensburg and take the first steps in the second division.

Fein, who is a central midfielder by trade, should benefit from a spell with SSV Jahn Regensburg and gain experience while competing against a higher level of competition. With the central midfield still extremely crowded in Munich, the chance to face-off against the likes of FC Koln and Hamburger SV should do the youngster a lot of good.

Christian Keller, managing director of professional football at SSV Jahn Regensburg, is excited to have Fein aboard, as stated on the SSV Jahn Regensburg website:

With Adrian Fein, we are gaining a highly talented young player, who can be part of the future if developed accordingly. We are therefore very pleased that we were able to agree with FC Bayern that Adrian should now take his next development steps at SSV Jahn.

Fein knows the opportunity has great potential:

I want to take my first steps in professional football this season and think that the SSV Jahn is the perfect address for this. I had been in contact with those responsible for a long time and had a very good feeling after our talks. That was the reason why I decided to go on a loan to Jahn. I’m glad it worked and am looking forward to the new challenge.

Carlo Ancelotti is gone, but never forgotten! (@fums_magazin)

The name next to trainer might have sent some scares through the Bayen faithful. Like a smoking, Italian, nattily clad Jason Voorhees; you just can’t get rid of him!

Die Folgen: Bayern vs. VfB Suttgart (Bavarian Football Works)

It was a thoroughly dominant effort from Die Roten yesterday in the 3-0 win over VfB Stuttgart. Here some quick hitters on the match:

  • The attacking trio of Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller, and Leon Goretzka was everything I hoped it would be. Muller was at his creative best, Lewandowski just looks like he’s having fun, and Goretzka was constantly finding ways to apply pressure to the Stuttgart back line. I’ll take more of that please!
  • Thiago was a force at the “6.” The Spaniard was so cool and composed when on the ball and did an excellent job of cutting off angles while defending. I’m hoping that this move becomes a permanent one for Thiago as his presence and vision so deep in the formation almost allows him to play a point guard role. With James Rodruguez and Corentin Tolisso certain to garner more playing time at the “10” and “8”, long-term move to the pivot for Thiago would be a boost to the team in many ways.
  • The Bayern back line was solid, but honestly wasn’t tested a ton. Joshua Kimmich stood out with another terrific performance as he was a terror down the right flank.
  • Stuttgart is not as bad as it looked, it just could not handle the constant pressure from Bayern.
  • If you missed any of the goals, here you go:

Leon Goretzka opens the scoring for a 1-0 lead

Robert Lewandowski makes it 2-0 with some left-footed artistry

Thomas Muller continues his torrid start to the season for a 3-0 lead

USMNT future star Josh Sargent to stay with Werder Bremen during international break (Stars and Stripes FC)

Rather than joining the USMNT for the international break, Josh Sargent will stay with Werder Bremen to work with the first team. Werder Bremen manager Florian Kohfeldt told Bundesliga.com (as captured by Stars and Stripes FC) the plan for the 18-year old, who could be America’s top choice at striker for the 2022 World Cup.

I thought that Josh played very well yesterday. Josh will definitely get his chances to play with us in the friendly games next week.

Sargent, who was named U.S. Soccer Young Male Player of the Year for 2017, is a great talent and this will only help his chances of breaking into the first team this season. A natural scorer, Sargent has been torrid in Germany’s fourth division with four goals in his last five games, including this gem:

For those who have been following Sargent, it is not a stretch to think that the Missouri native will make an impact for Werder Bremen at some point this season.

A call for fan groups (BavarianFootballWorks.com)

We are trying something here at the Daily Schmankerl and need YOUR help. If you read my man Tommy Adams’ piece about his experience with the FCBNYC Fan Club (if you haven’t, SHAME ON YOU!), you could see how great the event was. So we want to highlight some of these wonderful groups that are out there globally and this is what we need from you:

  • Name of the group
  • Location
  • Year founded
  • Leadership (if you have people are kind of running the show)
  • Meeting place
  • Social media handles
  • Pictures

We have 7 clubs on board so far. I’d LOVE to be able to feature a different fan group every week this season. Maybe we can do it, maybe not...but only YOU can help decide the fate of this idea. Send your info to: barrelsportsblog@gmail.com.
