In 2 consecutive seasons Hamburger dramatically missed out on top 3 finish after awful collapses in the final few weeks of the campaigns. In both those season the displays and results for about 29-30 rounds merited promotion. This clearly suggests that it’s more psychological barrier that is stopping the giants from getting back to the top flight than anything else. Just like 1 year ago after the failure coach Dieter Hecking was quickly sacked and Hamburger start fifth consecutive season with new manager at the helm. Daniel Thioune will be the next in line to try and revive the fallen giants. The off-season saw 5 first-team players returning to their parent clubs, including important Fein and Pohjanpalo. Also centre-back Letschert left, meaning at least 3 regulars from 2019/20 are no longer there. They were all replaced with new signings though - Toni Leistner, Klaus Gjasula and Simon Terodde. All of these 3 players are aged 30 and over, with hopes being that their experience will bring better mental toughness too. The new manager seems to prefer using lone centre forward, with Terodde proven force at this level. Also in Hinterseer and Wintzheimer Hamburger have 2 more strikers perfectly capable of having 10+ goals seasons. Yet to be made clear what defensive shape will be used with Hamburger constantly shifting between 3-man and 4-man back line in the first 4 friendlies they played. The attack should be the team’s main strength once again with Kittel and captain Hunt in charge of creating scoring chances for the many potent forwards in the squad. Defensively looked poor in previous years and despite signing 30-year-old centre-back Leistner it’s far from certain that stability at the back will be found quickly. This remains the main area of weakness.

Target


Top 3 finish is a must, with the team having the squad to achieve it. The big question is do they have the mentality?

Season Review
2019/2020

№4: Hamburger SV

For the second year in a row same thing happened to Hamburger, missed out on top 3 finish in the final round of the campaign! Up until the season was interrupted by the COVID-break in early March things looked to be going smoothly for Hecking’s men and they even looked in prime position to achieve direct promotion. The forced break unsettled things though and bad form since restart (W2 D4 L3) brought the painful failure. Having big squad was the main strength of the team, but also the main weakness. Coach Hecking was reluctant to rotate and use broader group of players, which especially during the hectic schedule after the COVID-break proved the wrong approach. Another major weakness was the defensive line, with Hamburger able to keep only 3 clean sheets in the final 24 rounds! All this made it much harder for the forwards to compensate and accumulate enough wins. At least it must be said that going forward things looked well. The contributions in attack were evenly split between 5-6 players throughout the campaign. Coach Hecking can definitely be criticised for not rotating much in the final run in, which considering the crazy schedule backfired. Fatigue played major factor in Hamburger conceding decisive late goals in 4 of last 6 games. After 2 identical failures it won’t be a surprise if Hamburger change managers again between seasons, with fresh ideas and possibly new signings in defence urgently needed.
