Two years ago in December we went on an MSC cruise to  mainly Italy. 12 days for £395 each. They gave us a free balcony. Saw Genoa, Venice, Rome, Naples, Pompey and Florence. Go on a. Cruise, book with 4 days to go. Jobs a gud 'un. 

Sailing from Portsmouth?

Fly cruise, the Royal Navy would not let me travel with them. Southampton is an option but no need to waste time sailing to Italy when you are there in two hours by plane (harrier jet). 😎😀

Didn't work out here so for the best.

Loan him out, get someone to cover his wages this year, cheaper than paying him off.

Imagine we've probably got a 1 year option, what would be awesome is he bags 20 odd goals, a load of teams want him, we force the extension and get a nice fee.

Can see him coming back to the championship and doing alright for someone else next year.

We seem to have not improved some players, maybe we have brought them to a place where they are no longer confident. 

Keeping the same manager helps but finding the right one is very difficult. Let us hope for continuity.

Read his message on Facebook. Always wanted Nick to do well as he seems such a nice bloke.

I hope he has great success at Gijon and the fans take him to their hearts. 

Let's just hope that he doesn't bring as much joy and happiness to the Gijon fans as he did to the Derby fans!

Went to Tuscany in May. Wouldn't rush back to Florence. Seemed very busy and crowded (even compared with Paris, Rome, Venice and Verona). If you go again check out Lucca.

Lucca is also lovely! The Cathedral there is incredible and the main Piazza is pretty awesome - I liked Florence, but then Iive in central London so my tolerance for busy places is quite high 🙂

Every Italian we have met has been lovely. 

I went with my family the first time I went - I the early 00s - Everywhere we went if we mentioned Derby County the Italians would want to talk about Eranio and Brian Clough - Bloody love their football over there too

 

Just bringing the thread back on topic guys - Think this Italy chat has been the most pleasant/one-sided discussion we've ever had on the forum

I forget the details but I sure I read somewhere he had been doing something worthy charity wise, so I can well believe hes a good character.

He got people to send in old and unwanted kits so he could go and give them to kids in poverty stricken countries I believe?

Great character from the lad there.
