It’s now five years since FC Rünenberg aka the Gold Rushers came to exist back in 2009! Time to celebrate what have been achieved and talk about concerns and cares.
And that’s what we have done when we had the incredible privilege to have an exclusive interview with the one and only Manager of the club, Sir Schluurggi! We went through the complete history of the club, read all the great achievements both teams reached and all the big names which are so familiar to us. And with all this information we went to the small and moderate office where he already waited.
Welcome guys, take a seat. First I would like to point out what an excellent job you’re doing regarding the blog. Would you like to have a coffee or something else?
Wow, what a kind welcome! Of course we said yes to a coffee, it was early in the morning. We started with the first question while he was busy to get..

New season, known mission
Winning the league is a great result. Missing promotion is a sad outcome. But if you pair those two facts it gives you a tough challenge for the new season:
The mission for the new season is already known: We will be involved in the title race again, and we will put that trophy in our prize shelf once more. Then we’ll have to prepare for our first season in division four!
This quote is taken from a short interview Coach Romain Krecker gave in the Sunday Sports show on the local radio. As you may recognize the used tense in the spoken words have changed since the new staff members have joined the Gold Rushers a season ago; now the statements are made in ‘future’ rather than in ‘conditional’. The reporter then asked him about the recent transfers in Rünenberg and this was the answer of our head-coach...

Still to improve we have
It is made of gold, the latest trophy we put into our prize shelf! They made it in great manner, but promotion has to wait.
Many of Rünenberg’s supporters are disappointed about the outcome in the qualifier, when the Gold Rushers equalized the score in fact but took the bad end when the referee finished the game. The 1-3 defeat isn’t that bad, but it’s still a defeat. Coach Romain Krecker couldn’t hold back his tears:
The season was very tough; we had to fight for every single point in this strong and balanced series. A lot of energy was used to be on the top in the end, and this might be the main reason why the lads weren’t able to perform as the maybe could when this game was earlier in the season. I promised to bring the Gold Rushers to the fourth division and I’m very very sad I failed this time.
He made a short break to put his emotions in order and added...

Gold or Silver (again)?
It was a very clear and unambiguous statement the management published when this actual running and soon ending season began: “We will be the team winning the trophy once more!”
The chance to reach that target is still there, but only with a little help of our ‘friends’. Inter Stauffen has to be victorious against Murphys Law while our lads have to win their own match against Werwölfe Gretzebach at the same time. We think both games are possible to end with the mentioned winners, but there is the unpredictability of this sport, which may kill all ambitions without hesitation.
We all may, but of course don’t want to, remember what happened in week two of this global season, when the Gold Rushers played their first game at the Mill. That’s what Coach Romain Krecker has to say about that game back then...

This post is about the forwards (or strikers) of the Gold Rushers. And there is an actual reason to put them in the spotlight: three hattricks in only two games!
Of course there are more players in different roles needed in a team, but these two victories (11-0 against AC Superiore and 4-0 against the Warriors of Sahura) are definitely reason enough for a special introduction of those players responsible for the scores.
The one using his head: Malte Wehrda
29 years, 181 matches, 111 goals, 6 hattricks, 40 MotM
Malte is the one who may be able to top Dölf Bilon’s records soon, and he is actually in the best phase of his career. With 9.5-star performances he’s the best forward we have. In the last game against AC Superiore, when Coach Romain Krecker has chosen a 3-4-3 lineup knowing that every single goal can decide whether a team will win the trophy or not...

The race is close!
And we hope it’ll stay until the end. Well we’re not talking about the V.90-Series only, but the HTUM U18 Championship as well, since RJs managed to sit on top.
V-90Although the Gold Rushers lost the top spot after only one week sitting on the throne, completing the declare aim of this season, seems in reach still. Did you remember how surprised some of us were when our lads won against Murphys Law two weeks ago? The week after these two teams met again and the result was turned too; our players made an excellent appearance but unfortunately Murphys had the edge in this match. At least we’re still in the race at this time and it looks like we can only be defeated with a very close score this season. All the games we lost so far have been lost because of one single goal missing on our side.

We’re in week eight of global season 55 and it’s time to summarize the first half of it. Saying this we’re happy to offer a summary written by Georg Casabella on our website:
Some of you may wonder about the header to this summary, but it fits perfect to summarize the first half of this running season. Now, for those who don’t think it’s the right header: be invited to read the following and I’m sure the words and facts will convince you to agree about this issue.
First I was surprised by the clear statement of Sir Schluurggi, when he announced the Gold Rushers aiming for promotion this season. Well two Bot-teams in the league is something we experienced in our very first season for the last time, but is this enough to shout out this aim? I was curious and studied the unknown and the (well-) known competitors in the league.

Gestern hatten die Jungs des FC Rünenberg zwar bereits ihr Ziel (die fünfte Runde im Cup) erreicht, aber dennoch erwarteten viele, dass sie den Erfolg der letzten Saison wiederholen würden. Aber einmal mehr kam es anders als erwartet.
Coach Romain Krecker fühlt sich wieder einmal betrogen:
Ich weiss nicht einmal wie oft wir in den vergangenen Wochen solche Spiele nicht gewinnen konnten. In der vergangenen Saison hatten wir dann jeweils noch soviel Glück, dass wir am Ende wenigstens einen Punkt behalten konnten, aber diese Saison ist das bereits die zweite Niederlage die ich nicht nachvollziehen kann.
Tatsächlich wäre ein Sieg unserer Jungs wohl das korrekte Resultat gewesen, wenn man die Gesamtstärke der beiden Mannschaften in Betracht zieht, aber es sollte nicht so sein. Nun blicken alle vorwärts auf eine neuerliche Teilnahme am FCBasel forever Cup, welchen wir in der Vergangenheit bereits zweimal gewinnen konnten.
Mal sehen ob der Titel verteidigt werden kann!
Coach Krecker ausser sich!
Autsch! Das hatten sich nun alle anders vorgestellt! Wir unterstellen jetzt mal, dass sogar die Werwölfe ein anderes Ergebnis erwartet haben. Nach dem Spiel hatten wir das zweifelhafte Vergnügen mit Coach Krecker zu sprechen:
Ja klar es war sicherlich nicht einfach nach einem Forfait-Sieg in der ersten Runde dann im ersten Ernstkampf voll da zu sein, aber wir machten eines unserer besten Spiele und dennoch wurden wir von den Werwölfen gebissen!
In der Tat war das Spiel das viertbeste in der Geschichte des Clubs. Das bisher gesagte war aber nur die Einstimmung:
Ob ich enttäuscht bin? Nein, ich bin stocksauer! Ich meine, wir hatten das Spiel von Anfang an im Griff, und schon die Führung der Werwölfe war überraschend und gegen den Spielverlauf, aber was in den letzten zehn Minuten geschah ist absolut inakzeptabel! Wir gewähren den Gästen vier(!) Grosschancen, wovon sie dann auch noch zwei nutzen können!?
Dann stampfte er fluchend davon und wir können das verstehen!
