El Niño is not going to affect their chances. It wouldn't matter when they went, because it's still Brasil. Is 101% humidity possible? Probably in Brasil.

And shouldn't it be O Menino since it's Portuguese?

Shouldn't it be The Boy since we're speaking English? It was first noted by fishermen in South America, and their name stuck. English loves borrowing foreign words and using them as its own.

/it's named for Jesus because the warming of the ocean took place around Christmas

Paris1127: English loves borrowing foreign words and using them as its own.


"The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle through their pockets for loose vocabulary "

Have they settled on their WC roster, yet?

Not really. Only a few. The biggest, best, and most important players in the EPL title race are non-English. There's Hart, SAS (not Suarez) and Slippy McGee, everyone else isn't doing much.

Sorry, pet peeve.

Barkley, Lallana and Sterling have all been widely tipped.

Why does England expect to ever do well?  The BPL is a great league but bolstered by tons of great foreign talent.  I get that they invented the game, more or less, but that was well over a hundred years ago.

Barkley?  What are the major implications of the Everton match?  They are in a Euro spot no matter when happens tomorrow. However, if that match is important, then you forgot Baines.

Also, Milner will probably make the team as well as Glen Johnson.  Then you have the Tottenham players that are up for a possible spot, Dawson, Lennon and Kyle Walker.  And then the Man U guys Welbeck, Carrick, Young, and Smalling.  Some of those guys may not feature, and one or two may not end up going to Brazil, but they are all possibles on teams that still have something to play for.

Also Jagielka from Everton too.

I blame 1966.
