It was about to honor the nominated best blogs, when the winner of last season, manager Leebebbs of Renaissance FC, entered the stage to tell us more about the nominees:
And now it is my great honour to announce the next award, specifically the award for the Best Blog in the HTU Managers Federation on Hattrick United. It was a great compliment for me to be nominated in this category, having won the award at the previous awards… but now I am especially pleased to be able to announce the new winner. So apart from Renaissanc FC, who are the other nominees?
FC X-Team’s blog by Xuturo is one of the outstanding original blogs as regards original post ideas, with some recent journeys into poetry but not only! Cuomos’ blog for Vi Flaesker Jer always has dynamic and eye-catching visuals and ideas, with quality posts containing multimedia enhancing the reading experience. Schluurggi’s FC Runenberg blog is the one blog in this category which seems to tick all the boxes whilst providing a crisp and clean finish. Lupachuk’s Klaukkala Bears blog has seen the biggest aesthetic change as the Bears persona is created in greater detail there. There are so many blogs in this Federation, which didn’t even get in the nominations which could have easily. The competition is fierce but also friendly.
Despite this, only one can be chosen and the name of the winner is in this envelope.

I’m pleased to say, that the winning blog is one I personally voted for. Outstanding design, post content, visually pleasing, full of information about the team and competitions, and truly an example for the new blogs in our Federation… the winner is:
Standing ovations brought a tremendous noise into the room, while Mr. Schluurggi found his way up to the speaker’s desk. When he arrived he took Lee’s hand and whispered something to him. Both started laughing and presented each other to the audience! As Lee has left the stage, Schluurggi tried to calm the audience:
Thank you Lee! Well, now I’m in troubles. I have heard rumors that FC Rünenberg maybe will win one of these eminently respectable awards, but I have really not believed in them, because all the nominees – and not only these – are great blogs, with awesome design and interesting stories. Some of them have extraordinary inputs, others very special widgets, and that’s why this decision must have been very close! The award is a great honor!
He made a break and it seemed like he’s searching for the right words before he continued:
I would like to share it with all of you – the other team managers, because without your work, our blog won’t look as it does and even the stories wouldn’t be of that kind. Your tips helped us to provide the world with a better design, your blogs inspired us to provide the world with informative widgets and your words brought our best stories to life! Thank you all for helping and for awarding us! I promise we’ll do our best to keep our standard or even lift it to higher levels, but still we’ll keep things clean and simple! Take care, and once again: Thank you!
He smiled and left the stage hearing another round of applause!
