It’s time to nominate our candidates for the seasonal HTU Managers Awards. Every season the members of the fed have the right to nominate their best players, blogs and managers. After the nomination is closed all members shall vote who should become the best in each category. Usually this happens all behind the curtain, but this time we decided to make it a bit more public by letting you all know who our nominees are. We hope that our friends in the fed don’t mind.
This season it was no easy job to pick the right ones, because there are many to chose from in every category. These are now the nominees of FC Rünenberg aka the Gold Rushers:
Once again Arnold did the best he can to get as few as possible goals. He’s not a star, but he’s one of our own and he earned something of the training this season, even he’s already twenty-seven years old. Without him the Gold Rushers would have had troubles in the fifth for sure. Too bad the captain got injured and missed some games, but he’ll be back this week and hopefully lead the lads towards great success!
Marcel had a hard job to fill the gap Theo Horber left behind, but he did a great job and nobody is sad that Theo left the team at the end of last season. We wished Marcel scored one or two goal more, since he is a header, but maybe his specialty is even more useful when it comes to crossings from the opponents. These have been the words we wrote at the end of last week, and it was not made public, but somehow Marcel must know about it and scored four goals in the game against Reinach Rangers!
Janosch joined the team at the end of last season and made great progress in the training. He needed only a few weeks to be the best wingback in the team and from that point he did an even greater job. He showed his unpredictability in the first game of the season already, when we played an unexpected pass to Cornelius Dahmer, who scored the third goal in that game afterwards.
He’s the man we could the most count on, as he was very stable regarding his form curve! Nik is (beside Eugenio Cioccarelli) the only who played all league matches and he was voted Man of the Match in nearly every game he was on the field when it ended. Beside that he scored three goals. We never thought that he could be the most valuable player in the squad of the Gold Rushers, but he proved us wrong!
This is Dölf’s last season as a professional football player. It’s his twelfth! He scored 120 goals in nearly 200 games (the 200th will be his last at the end of this season). He also scored many goals this season in every campaign he was involved. All in all, he has made a great job again and managed to show Eugenio Cioccarelli how to take the set pieces in efficient manner. There will be a great goodbye party when he’s putting his boots away. As we heard he may become a referee after ending his player career.
It was clear that it will be hard for Malte to repeat the top scorer title in the fifth division, but nevertheless he did what he loves most to do; he scored goals and helped the Gold Rushers to (hopefully) stay in the fifth for at least another season. Next season he and his mates will get training to score even more goals.
When he left RJs, because he got a contract in the first squad, the performance of the boys left the used level and they had big trouble to find the way up again. He came with good basics from the academy and learned very much in this season. Because of his skills he’s able to play both, in central defence or as a wingback. He is soon looking for another club to get more progress.
Best Talent: Mauro Schoenbeck (16 years)
Mauro was scouted only some weeks ago, with only knowing that he is an inadequate all-rounder and he might become a passable winger with the right training. He performed on a six star level in his very first appearance and Coach Hannes Bratschi told us that he might also become a passable midfielder.
Best Manager: Paquebot (AS Uijeongbu 07)
He made a great job in AU7′s first season in South Korea’s K-League! Therefore he has not only to be nominated in this category, he has to win this award!
Best Blog Design: Los Mejores Fútbol Club (by Vgrille)
Many of the blogs in our fed are looking awesome, and the decision whose blog looks the best is getting harder from season to season. This time I nominate the blog-design of Vgrille, because I simply like it the most. That’s how it looks!
Best Blog Story: Doctrina (by Cuomos)
When Cuomos started this story many of the managers were fascinated from the early beginning. It started with a little piece of paper and ended in a very interesting and entertaining search for a deeper knowing about… The story is filled with great dialogs and pictures to underline the overall impression of this great work. An interesting fact is the length of the different parts: while the early parts were kept short the later ones became longer and longer. It looks like Cuomos himself got more absorbed the more he wrote. This work is a must-read for everyone who likes Hattrick and everything that is related to it. You can find it here!
Best Blog Media: the End (by Leebebbs)
This is a really great piece of history to lock at! Thanks Lee! Check it out!
Best Blog: the Flaming Wodkas FC (by Leebebbs)
He had in mind to get the best blog award this season, and he did an extraordinary job with some good stories about his team and his thoughts to be nominated at least. Prove me wrong!
