Hello everyone who knows me, and those who don’t. I am Oriolekid, and I am running for U21 coach. This may seem like déjà-vu since I have ran for a record number of u21 elections, and have come in 2nd a record (I think I’m up to 8 2nd place finishes).

This is my Time

Why is this my time? I am the single most dedicated user to our u21 NT that has ever existed. People can try to lie or argue, but look back at the early NT elections. I am the constant. In Season 13 I first ran. Season 13. That was over 10 years ago. I wasn’t ready then, much like I wasn’t ready many times afterwards. But I endured. It does not get anymore American than that. Endurance and Persistence; I refuse to quit. And I learned so much. I am constantly still learning and asking questions because this game will pass you by if you don’t adapt with it. I am so damn proud of myself for my dedication to this team. I love it so much. And I will not fail this team. I will not fail the managers, or the fans that make this game and our community so amazing.

I have endured and all I ask all of you for is a chance. I do not deserve anything more than a chance.

I used to get angry typing this section. I thought it didn’t matter since I always had so much, but time is an unforgiving force that has diluted even my finest achievements, but if I don’t advocate for myself than no one will. So, here’s 40 seasons worth of stuff

1) I was the first one to create a weekly training diary on the old USA offsite. It was just gameplanning and scouting and not at all fun for the average user. So I created the LionPride Team Training Thread, and Wozz liked the initiative and idea, followed suit, and now we have hundreds of diaries on the offsite (now defunct) and an entire discord community where we share our players and get advice for plans. That was all me, and it’s what I’m most proud of in my time in this game.

2) I have been u21 and NT scouts for like 10 different coaches. Opposition scouting, which I feel is my strength, advanced scouting future opponents (whether this season or next), player scouting, data entry into the old database and I used to be a mentor to a bunch of new users. Most recent with the full NT as they celebrated a gold medal yesterday against Chile.

3) I have trained some u21 and full NT players. Otto Reedy is one of the greatest players in NT history. Matt Whitman was also a u21 player. I am probably missing some. Check my HOF.

Ask me all the questions you want. I want this election more than any prior. I can get us a gold and if you want to find out how, go to the debate thread and ask! Also, join the discord and then PM so I can approve you. That community is awesome and will make you a better manager.
