    NYT: It now appears — despite all the chest-bumping and smartphone-rattling — that the Cup really is going to happen in November and December instead of in January or May or even in the traditional window of June and July, which would have felt like a traditional brick oven in Doha, Qatar.

    FIFA’s executive committee is expected to approve the new dates — most likely Nov. 21 to Dec. 18 — when it meets Thursday and Friday in Zurich.

    This is hardly the ideal-world solution, which would have been to withdraw the Cup from Qatar and stage a revote. Instead, it is an attempt to make the best of a compromised situation that is completely FIFA’s own fault.

    Lovin' the world cup soccer! I watched Christiano Ronaldo score two goals off his head the other night. Say what you will about the guy but he gets it done! I get a little disappointed with all the diving and acting up by some players especially during World cup. It can really spoil it. I've always enjoyed Germany's style of play.

    I was pissed off at first because it's really gonna disrupt the premier league but then someone told me England might have a shot at winning that year haha. They'll be fresher Nov/Dec than they are in the summer after a long season.

    I still have hopes the location will change.
