Update on the Kenya Soccer Project!

We have a name! The players have spoken and have agreed that Nehemiah FC is a perfect name for the club. What a huge step! Shebby has informed me that they are getting together regularly to play and are growing in numbers. That's all we can ask for! We are currently in the process of finalizing a team crest design but in the meantime there are a few exciting announcements along with some photos. Thank you so much for your support!

Blue is the Color in the Camp Nou: Chelsea Shock Spaniards Round Two

Insanity in Spain as Barcelona crash out of the UEFA Champions League at the hands of 10 man Chelsea

Torres Hits the Mark for the Blues
After nearly failing to make it out of the Group Stage and struggling to produce any points whatsoever in league play just six months ago, Chelsea, against all odds, manage to secure themselves a spot in the UEFA Champions League 2012 final in Munich. From the starting whistle the match was a tale resembling David versus Goliath, but against all odds, a ten man Chelsea rallied and capitalized on their dramatic win at Stamford Bridge last week and controversial striker Fernando Torres silenced the critics as he scored the match winner and ensured Chelsea’s passage to the next round.

Manchester United 4-4 Everton

Everton heat up the title race as they hold Manchester United to a draw at Old Trafford

It was well worth the trip South for Everton fans

Manchester United and Everton clashed in a heated and exciting fixture at Old Trafford. As we near the end of the season, every goal and every point count. Before the match, United were clear at the top of the table by five points. Everton were looking to distance themselves from their Merseyside rivals Liverpool, who sit in eighth place just below the blue half of Liverpool, so points mattered for them as well. Four fantastic goals from each side and a dramatic late equalizer from Steven Pienaar meant that each side went home with just a point apiece, but the match will go down as one of the most exciting games of this campaign.

FC Sion 0-3 FC Basel

Frei Strikes Two for Basel

Basel Three Points Closer To Axpo Super League Title

A good overall performance from both sides was the story of FC Sion's home fixture against current League Leaders FC Basel. The visitors are currently at the top of the table by thirteen points and the only thing that is certain fro Sion is that they will be playing football next season in the Challenge League after they were docked 22 points by the SFA for using unrostered players in a EUROPA League qualification match at the beginning of the season. Neither team really had anything to play for, yet the match was well-matched and both sides put in 100%, Basel emerging the better team.
