    So, I've just bought tickets to the Shamrock Rovers / Stjarnan Europa League qualifying match on Thursday. Guess I'll get to see Chencinski live.

    Levi Oakey got a reaction from rkomar in Herdsman to step down in 2020   
    We give them the keys to the kingdom because we want the style of play to be influenced from the top to the bottom of the organization. We want leaders who understand that their work is not as a cog in the wheel, but as leaders. As a leader, you should also expect to be tasked with making sure that you are preparing your position for the next in charge. If you look at lots of large organizations, that's part of their job. Whether it be in politics, finance, or elsewise. They need to pass on a legacy to the next generation of leaders. 

    John Herdman is a leader. He know he didn't want to just sit down and tactically manage pawns. He wanted to lead individuals who fulfilled a job and had them excel in those positions. Part of that is encouraging a legacy, opportunities beyond that single position that those individuals currently occupy. Him helping in the decision for the next choice is the sign of a good leader. He has a transition plan, and he has encouraged his followers (as he is a leader) to step up.

    The amount of academies doesn't determine what you can develop in your academy.  In fact with a less programs, they should be stronger.  They should be able to get every top kid in the country  into their program, with all the highest level coaching in Canada. 
    My point is the academies we do have are regressing not moving forward. Fury got rid of their program. And Edmonton is just a feeder for VWC. 
    They are figuring it out; they've figured out they don't run a good program.

    For me football lines was a problem but not the only one at University stadium. The track, the turf and only one side having a stand. It is nowhere near first division standards. I'd rather wait another year than have a team play there for a season.

    Levi Oakey reacted to Juan in Beer Prices at CPL Stadium   
    A very important topic that hasn't been touched yet is the potential pricing of beer, or maybe I missed it in all the madness of these forum.
    What's a fair price point for beer? I know there is a faction that says "who needs beer to enjoy sports?" and while I support your right to that view, I'm of the opinion that I enjoy catching a buzz while watching sporting events with my friends.
    I've been to many games at BMO field and it always pissed me off having to pay $15 for a Large watered down draught beer or $11 for tall can of Bud.
    Last October I was in London and went to watch WC2018 qualifier between ENG vs MAL at Wembley (amazing experience) and the drinks were £5.00 (so about $9 with exchange) but even so for a local that's an affordable price. Only ****** part was that no booze allowed in seating area because the English are known to throw their cups of beer onto the pitch so you have to chug them back.
    Taking into consideration the need to turn a profit, I think a fair price point for regular Molson Canadian or Budweiser is about $6-7 for tall cans or $9-10 for 30oz large beverage. Add an extra buck for premium beers.
