SFG Player of the Week: Ahmed Yasser

By Tom Danicek

On the surface, José Daniel Carreño’s debut on the Qatari bench was anything but remarkable.

In the heart of a very experimental line-up, you could find a barely mobile midfield tandem of Abdulaziz Hatem and Majdi Siddiq, at right back Qatar might’ve been much better off without an obvious miscast in leggy Mohammed Musa, and in offence it was all about waiting for Al Haidos & Ali Assadalla to finally come off the bench and bring some badly needed flair to the pitch. 593 more words

Week(s) in Review: The Doha Days are Over...

As soon as we got back from Sydney, John and I finalized a major decision.  As much as we’ve enjoyed our time here, we both feel ready to take on a new adventure, so….after some careful planning and research, the Hollers will no longer be in the ‘ha, as of January 30th! 832 more words


Week(s) in Review: Turkey Time & Family Fun

After getting back from South Africa, we had some fun things to keep us busy in Doha. It always helps me to get “readjusted” if I have events to look forward to! 513 more words


Doha Daze

Hard to believe we’ve been back in Doha almost 3 weeks now after returning from Japan! The first week was a bit rough adjusting back to the time change/work schedule/being far from friends and family/restrictions of Middle Eastern living (what?), but as usual, time has flown by and I think now we’re back in our old routine. 479 more words



The day after we got back from Dubai we had a sleepy day at work, and then a special treat- dinner at Red Lobster. I say this facetiously, but it’s pretty embarrassing how excited I was for unlimited Cheddar Bay biscuits and clam chowder. 659 more words
