Hello Fellow Singapore Gooners,

All good things come to an end…and unfortunately, that happened to our unbeaten run on Sunday night as a trio of headed goals handed Unai’s Red Army their first defeat in all competitions since August. It was an incredibly frustrating night for all Gooners as a patched up defense led by a clearly rusty Koscielny failed to deal with Southampton’s direct approach. To make matters worse, both Bellerin and Lichsteiner went off injured as well. Expect to see Bould named as a substitute for the next match.

If the boys are looking to pick themselves up after that loss, then there is no better way to do it than beating that homeless bunch of divers in the Carabao Cup on Thursday morning. Five Square will not be open for the match, so you will have to cheer on our boys in front of the TV / laptop / mobile phone. With matches coming thick and fast in the next couple of weeks, it will be interesting to see how Unai rotates his injury ravaged squad for this match.

Five Square will be open for this Saturday’s home match against Burnley, which kicks off at a relatively early time of 8:30pm. Do come down early with your friends / family to have pre-match dinner and drinks, and make merry as we prepare to celebrate Christmas very soon!

On behalf of the exco, we would like to wish all Gooners a very Merry Christmas! (hopefully Santa Claus brings a couple of new players for Unai as Christmas gifts!)

Best wishes,
Alvin

Hello Fellow Singapore Gooners,

Our unbeaten run continued with a hard-fought 1-0 win against Huddersfield, thanks to Lucas Torreira scoring the winner with an acrobatic bicycle kick! Our diminutive midfielder has become a key player after being eased into the team by Unai Emery at the start of the season, and his partnership with Xhaka has been one of the reasons for our improved form so far this season. A legend in the making and the type of player we have needed for a very long time. The partyyyyyyy goes on!

Speaking of party, Arsenal Singapore held our annual year-end dinner and charity auction before the Huddersfield match to raise funds for the Children’s Aid Society. There was also a lucky draw where lucky Gooners walked away with some nice prizes including bottles of wine signed by Ray Parlour, which were generously donated by Five Square for the lucky draw. Special thanks go out to PUMA and Emirates too for their kind donation of signed Arsenal memorabilia for the auction and together with our members who attended the dinner, a total of SGD 4,000 was raised from the event.

Twenty unbeaten. That’s about all we can say from this game. Could have won it if we hadn’t made schoolboy defensive errors, especially that second goal. WTAF!!?!

Oh well, on to the weekend, Five Square is open for our year end party on Sat 8 Dec from 730pm followed by our home game vs Huddersfield Town at 11pm. We will have a buffet dinner (no pork, no beef and some vegetarian choices), plus a charity auction of 2 Arsenal shirts, one signed by the whole team kindly donated by Puma and the other signed by Unai Emery, kindly donated by Emirates, drawings made by AFC players at the July fan party and games, quizzes, and prizes galore so sign up for it ASAP.

Last year we made it a free event and we had over 20% no shows which led to a lot of wasted food. In order to avoid a repeat, we are charging $10 per person and each member can bring one guest, so $10 for 1 person, $20 for 2. Signups are first come, first served, limited to 75 pax (5 spots left). The whole amount collected will be donated to Children’s Aid Society, none of it will be kept by the club.

Bring your chequebooks, the auction for the signed shirt will start at 10pm! And if you can’t be there but want to bid on that shirt please reply to this newsletter with your MAXIMUM bid and I will bid on your behalf.

Please sign up and make payment via Paypal or credit card here: https://tinyurl.com/ycvqw4oq Any questions regarding signups and payment, please email payments@arsenalsingapore.com

For those going to Emirates in Feb/early Mar, ticket applications are open, please email tickets@arsenalsingapore.com.

That’s it for this week, COME ON ARSENAL!!!

Best wishes,
Jin Yan
