It’s been quiet for a long, a very long time now. This is the main reason for us to bring this story to you, dear friends, supporters and accidentally readers.
As this is the first one during this running season, it has to be a summary about the golden first half of it! It is also thought to give you a sneak peek behind the scenes, as there are some things we have in mind to change regarding the short- and midterm future of both, the Gold Rushers and the Clan. And there will be some words of the manager himself, he would like to be published on this channel.
Let us first talk about the new and the equalized record of the Gold Rushers: It was the plan to survive the third round in the Switzerland Cup this season, as the management realized those games and the enclosed chance for raising money and team spirit might be very important for reaching the main goal; gathering the third trophy in V.90-series...
Ready for a new record?
"The team is undefeated for 11 competitive games and has 2 wins in a row" that's what it says when you come over the team's overview page. It is an old record with 15 competitive games from the early days. In fact it was the very first 15 games the Gold Rushers won. This record is not subject to top, but the one called longest Cup-Run!
The Gold Rushers reached the sixth round (it was before the Cup-System was changed) for only one time. This means they do have the very real chance to reach the seventh round this season, what would of course be the very best they did in Switzerland Cup. If we ask Coach Romain Krecker about if it's possbile, that's what he says:
"See, we will not hide, facing a team of the fourth division is a huge hurdle to cross, but the truth lies on the pitch. Everything is possible on Wednesday and we’re ready to do everything to get that record done!”
What about the future?
This is my original team founded in 2009 and this will stay for sure. I invested too much thoughts, feelings and hopes into it. It was out of question to support the game when I started playing Hattrick almost six years ago, and I feel the same today. I will support the game as long as I’ll play and enjoy it, but the question will be on which level I’ll do so.
I fully understand there is money needed to run an online game, and I’m willing to pay for it, as I already mentioned above, but there is a certain limit. Not only the amount but also the increase has a limit. They care about the managers who leave the game, but with this latest decision they maybe do not force managers to leave but at least give them a very good reason. And those who leave now are the long lasting and most loyal managers. Is this really what they had in mind? I doubt it.
I’ll stay! What about you?

We headed to California with the order to set everything for the sixth edition of the Gold Rushers Cup, which will start next Monday. A local reporter gave us an interesting story he found in the diary of his grand-grand-grandpa. It is a historic treasure and it’s very surprising how this document fits perfect to the upcoming Gold Rushers Cup. Check it out:
Earlier this week the fanclubs of both teams, the Neibourheid and the Gold Rushers, came together and the three thousand noisy, drunken but still peaceful football lovers have been busy to find the best players of the two teams and the best manager of the Golden League. Once the votes have been collected and analyzed members of the management entered the stage in the center of Clan's Castle to say a few words of honor about the guys voted the fan’s favorite...

This is what Coach Romain Krecker wants to share about the eighteenth season of the Gold Rushers. The season which the team finished on third rank only three points down.
Romain KreckerWe, the management of FC Rünenberg, surprised many of you giving the aim for this season to stay in the division. Some may have wondered about this, since the most of you have clearly hoped the Gold Rushers to go for the title again. Others may have thought that might be only an understatement, but it was and still is the truth. We had been grounded the season before when we finished on fourth, what by the way wasn’t planned at this time. Then we had to do our homework and set a maybe not every ambitious but realistic aim for this season, and that’s what we have done.
We focused on raising our strength in the defence and therefore we signed a young prospective keeper, Niklas Pieschermann...

Gold Rushers are back
It was the first time ever the Gold Rushers have been busy in the Cup for nine weeks. It was a bit surprising being involved that long, after the unexpected out in the Switzerland Cup in the second game only.
Today they played their first game in the Golden League Season VI, which started at the beginning of this global season. The anticipation for this game was huge, since the Golden League is the most attended competition in Rünenberg!
The Host for this first game was the Norwegian SK Brann, a team FC Rünenberg never met in the Golden League before, but in tournaments already. The game was very interesting with chances on both side and it was close for a very long time. In fact Dave Ruby made the difference with his double score only minutes before the final whistle!
“Brann made it difficult for us to score and I’m very happy helping the team to win this game today!” Dave said after the game.
Changing the aim
The race is very close in V.90 and we think it’ll stay for some weeks more. We know the Gold Rushers only talked about staying in the league, but in the meantime we think the management should set the aim higher!
We feel there could be more in this season, and this feeling is very strong supported by the league’s statistics, where FC Rünenberg is actually sitting on top.
The fight to stay in the race for the third title will be hard and we’re sure it’ll get even harder the longer the season goes, but we believe in the Gold Rushers!
The adventure called Cup will probably be over this upcoming Wednesday, what makes the supporters looking forward for Golden League action, finally.
Gold Rushers Cup V
It is the fifth time already when some of the best teams of the HTU Managers fed come together to find the next winner of the Gold Rushers Cup! There are three of the four former winners involved again, led by the Korean top team AS Uijeongbu 07. The Blue Hornets aka FC X-team, the team which won the two latest Golden League Editions, are also ready to fight for the next trophy!
The tournament (1451349) will start next Monday at 19.00, so be ready to follow all these exciting clashes and support your favorite team while they rush for Gold!
We got a wiki-page!
It was a long time ago, when our manager gave us the order to check (wiki.hattrick.org). He then asked us to tell him whether it was a good idea to have a page about FC Rünenberg there or not. We told him that it might be a great idea to publish some content of our blog on this page, but he never gave us the final go to realize it.
Not long ago, it was last week; Sorlac (12455644) (a friend of our manager) told him that he just started that page about our beloved team. Then Sir S gave us the order to get that project running.
This is now what we worked on for some days:
