EURO 2012: An Accommodations Overview, Sweden NT

The Platium Hotel near Kiev is the next location to highlight on our EURO 2012 Stalker’s Map, Kickettes. This delightful hotel is where the Sweden NT are rumoured to be resting between their group games vs. England, Ukraine and France.

Our standard litmus test for any prospective stalking mission goes a little something like this: survey the room and determine amount of decoys needed to conceal three staffers, two editors, accompanying luggage, pets and stragglers. should an unexpected security check occur during our illegal entry.

Yeah, that beige sofa set isn’t going to cut it and that’s one hell of a staircase to pull a walk of shame on.

Not a great start, really.


The Swimming Pool

Looking at this picture gives us a headache. We’re not sure if that’s the result of clever lens trickery or last night’s vodka frenzy.

We’re liking the loungers and the plunge pool thingy, but don’t the people in charge realise that marble on the floor of pool room isn’t entirely conducive to players remaining injury free during a major football tournament?

Otherwise, that pool is super dark, which bodes well for refuge seekers but bad for short tent hunters.


The Bedroom

Things get a little brighter on the bedroom front. The decor is slightly more muted than we’ve come to expect from young men with barrels of cash and seriously limited tastes, but check out that floor-to-ceiling window situ!

Hmm…we have just the right crew of drunks in mind who can take solace behind those curtains…


The Restaurant

There isn’t really much scope for leching over footballers while they’re carb loading, so our only observation here will be that the lampshade-adorned chandelier is hanging quite low. We fear  an unfortunate Ibra/electricity interface should the striker leap to his feet out of anger during an otherwise friendly chat.

Which will inevitably happen, regardless of the catering.


Have we missed something, people? Have you identified any obvious points of entry that may require further investigation?

    In a revised forecast, Nintendo has same it now expects to sell only a pair of.8 million Wii U consoles within the twelve months ending March 2014. that's massively down the estimation of nine million units it had been clutching on to for most of 2013, with Nintendo finally admitting that the holiday season wasn't a decent time for the company in the face of stiff competition from the PlayStation four and Xbox One.Nintendo has oversubscribed three.91 million Wii U systems up to now.Additionally, the corporate has cut its sales forecast by a third: it's now 590 billion yen, down from 920 billion yen. As opposed to an operational profit of 100 billion yen, it now expects to post a thirty five billion yen loss. All in all, Nintendo now expects post a 25 billion yen loss to net at the tip of the fiscal year.

    So that's where my countrymen will be at. Perhaps one could hide behind the curtain in the bedroom? At least on a cloudy day? Or at night…
