re: Europe in August - blkhawktiger
I was just in Italy, France and Spain for a majority of August. A bunch of the little shops and restaurants we wanted to go to were closed for the holiday season. I saw signs everywhere of places re-opening Sept 1. ...

re: Advice Needed: 2 Week Trip to Europe - blkhawktiger
Yes that's going to be a ton of travel time between that many cities. Cut the trip to 4 cities and conquer Europe in pieces. ...

re: Rome and Tuscany - blkhawktiger
Sorry for the late response but I'm just getting back around to being back in the States. The FC Barcelona website was where we got our tickets. Incredibly easy and updated. Had digital copy of tickets on my phone and printed out physical copies just in case. Very easy to get to Nou Camp using t...

re: Advice Needed: 2 Week Trip to Europe - blkhawktiger
That's a lot of places in three weeks. I just got back from Florence, Monterosso, Nice, and Barça in 17 days and it was the trip of a lifetime. However, if we could do it over again, I think we would have shortened our stay in Nice for more days in Monterosso. The train from Florence to Monteros...

re: I need a team to root for.... - blkhawktiger
I tried to "pick" a team for several years. I found it is better to just let it happen. I kept finding myself drawn to the Palace matches, even when there were much better and more important match ups. It became apparent they had become my team when I sat in misery as Hennessey let the ball slip...

[quote]Crystal Palace have reached an agreement with Chelsea for the loan of Loic Remy with a €12m option to buy, according to Le 10 Sport.[/quote] :dude: Remy + Benteke? I'll take it. Friendly option to buy price if he has a good go of it this season. ...

re: 2016/2017 Transfer Discussion - blkhawktiger
Sooo Palace seem to have upped their bid. (No shit, right?) Per ESPN, Liverpool have accepted the new Palace bid at £27M plus add-ons for Benteke. Sweet baby Jesus please let this be true. Hard to get excited until I see him hold up the hideous new kit at Selhurst ...

re: 2016/2017 Transfer Discussion - blkhawktiger
That was apparently Liverpool's reaction as well. Can't fault them. That's £7M of add-ons they wouldn't see anytime soon. ...

re: 2016/2017 Transfer Discussion - blkhawktiger
The rumors are coming on strong that Palace had 3 add-ons for the additional £7M and they're completely ridiculous. No wonder they were laughed out of the room. 1. Palace make top 4 2. Benteke plays in 70% of matches 3. Bags 20 goals How Parish and Pardew thought Liverpool were to take them...

re: 2016/2017 Transfer Discussion - blkhawktiger
Sad to see Yala leave Palace but it's quite the offer if the suspected reports of £30M are true. Can't fault Parish and Pardew for cashing in a guy they spent only £530k to sign in 2012. He's a cold/hot player who can change games in an instant and then disappear for weeks. Now go get Benteke an...

Thanks :cheers: Florence to Monterosso was her pick. I picked up from there and chose Nice and Barcelona. We have midfield tickets for Barcelona v. Real Betis at Camp Nou on Saturday, Aug. 20th :nana: Besides getting married, I'm more excited for that than anything else. Drinking a metric...

re: Rome and Tuscany - blkhawktiger
I'm on my way to Florence and Monterosso in the Cinque Terre for wedding/honeymoon right now. We looked at Rome, Amalfi, Florence, and Milan pretty seriously before deciding on our route. In reality, fiancée picked this part of our trip but I'm glad she did. Looking forward to it. ...

re: 2016/2017 Transfer Discussion - blkhawktiger
Bottom three finish if things stay as they are now with only one first-team worthy striker on roster in Wickham. What a disaster this could end up being. Can't believe Palace sold off Gayle without his replacement ready to go. ...

Looking like Sakho's move to West Brom may be falling through at the last second. Does Berahino stay in that case? :banghead: Palace are fricked if they can't find a striker. ...

[quote]Berahino apparently prefers Stoke according to Sky.[/quote] Yea, I think he's gone to Stoke unfortunately. Been a rough search for a striker for Pards and Parish. Benteke is a must if Berahino does end up at Stoke....
