(14:23) 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:


(12:20) Make it 10!

FC Rünenberg Juniors aka RJs made it: they won their final game and the title of the HTUM U18 Championship, the highest league within the HTUM Youth Leagues, above this!

It was only four weeks ago, when RJs celebrated their 9th trophy and this Friday they got their 10th, and this is of course the most prestigious one in the history of our academy and one for the story books as well!

It was a long and rocky road to get here, but today I know all these hard fought games and tough challenges have been worth it! Congrats to the boys, the scouts and the staff involved in the academy, and I have to say thank you to all of them and also the teachers and parents of the boys. We may not take it for granted, that support and help we get from all sides. This trophy is something we have been after since we joined the HTUM Youth Leagues more than two years ago...

(20:29) Will the League follow the Cup?

We thought that it’s over when RJs was defeated by the FC Sliver Juniors the weekend before, but now they’re back on the top and prepare for the deciding game!

“The academy never was of that quality before.” We heard these words spoken by Nik Zenger while he watched the 6-0 victory over the X-Team Jr. He and his team mates enjoyed that great game at the campus last weekend.

We agree with Nik, the first team’s captain, this is one of the best seasons the talents coached by Hannes Bratschi played so far, but it’s not only this season. Last season the base was formed when most of the actual talents have been recruited by the scouts.

(12:38) There's no Gold?

The final competitive game in season 56 is over and it ended in an unlucky but fair defeat. Someone said something about there’s no gold this season; is that true?

The management called for defending the title in Switzerland’s V.90-Series. The fans called for reaching at least the semifinals in the Golden League. The sponsors called for repeating the victory in the Gold Rushers Cup. But the lads failed within all competitions, and we have to add the early out of Switzerland’s Cup also. It might be absolutely right to deny any Gold considering all these unsuccessful campaigns, but there has more to be taken in account.

FC Rünenberg maybe has to be happy with smaller fruits but these aren’t less sweet than the others they failed to earn:

The match against Murphys Law ended in an unlucky defeat, but there still happened something glorious giving the Gold Rushers something to be happy, proud and cheering about.



(11:18) Talking about the future

It was early in the morning here in Switzerland when we tuned the local radio station and heard what Sir Schluurggi said about the near future of the Gold Rushers.

It was round about six o’clock in the morning, when our local radio station broadcasted an interview of our manager live from Melbourne (Australia) where the second leg game against the Pig Hunters ended only minutes before. Sir Schluurggi answered some questions about this season and the changes to expect for the near future. You’re now invited to read what have been said:


Welcome Sir S, many thanks for talking to us. I’m sure many of the listeners out there would like to hear your summary of this, let’s say unlucky, season, especially after the second defeat against the local heroes.

(21:46) Golden League Season 6

Georg Casabella – former player of the Gold Rushers, sports journalist and investigator – came along with the following thoughts about the upcoming Golden League 6, now it’s up to you.

Dearest readers, managers and friends

As you all might have recognized, the actual fifth season of the Golden League has already reached the knockout stage called GL Masters, and the managers of the HTUM Federation have already been called to name the arena where they want the Grand Finale taking place on the very last weekend of this global season. This means the first Golden League season running over three complete global seasons, what gives almost a complete year, is now only four weeks from being finished. Then we all celebrate the follower of Krosnianka Karpaty Krosno, FC Rünenberg, Krosno (again) and FC X-Team.

(09:50) 5th Anniversary!

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..

(11:21) 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...

(14:31) 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...
