Good morning Gooners,

With that emphatic 5-0 victory, The Arsenal marches on to our umpteenth FA Cup semi-final under Prof Wenger. The man has a good record in the FA Cup and Wembley, there’s no denying that. Do we fancy our chances against Citeh? You bet we definitely do!! Let’s get behind the team for the semis. #SheWoreAYellowRibbon

Now for some exciting news… We are 10 days away from our 10th Anniversary Party and it is completely SOLD OUT!!!

Yes folks, we have sold out all 200 seats. The Exco team wish to thank our members for your support and putting your trust in us. It’s gonna be an awesome night!

We will not be accepting any walk-ins at the party itself. This is a private event and we will definitely not allow members of public to attend either. This is THE MOST EXCLUSIVE PRIVATE PARTY IN 2017! #ArsenalSG10

We have so many prizes to give away that we have lost count… and not forgetting the Top prize of a return air ticket to London sponsored by Emirates! Who is feeling lucky?

Oh, there’s the appearance of Arsenal Legend and Invincible, LAUREN! Have you sent us your questions for Lauren yet? We will have a Q&A session with Lauren at the party. Send your questions to Umarani at

Umarani@arsenalsingapore.com

PARTY DRESS CODE

Just a reminder to come dressed in smart casual attire.

Wear any Arsenal jersey/top so long as it has any one colour – red, white, yellow or blue.

Please remind your partners/guests not to wear other football club jerseys/attire, naturally.

If you have not received your e-invite which was sent out last week, please email to Umarani at Umarani@arsenalsingapore.com

We’re back to Premier League action this Saturday and we play The Baggies away. We need to mount a good challenge for the remaining games and get us back as close to Chelski as possible.  It’s pretty tight up there and our rivals are bound to lose points in the next 2 months, trust me.

Come down to FIVE Square for the early kick-off. All food stalls will be open and we have new bar bites available from 6pm onwards as well.

Members can also collect your membership cards and polo shirts if you have not already done so.

I’ll see you there. Sing loud and proud, Gooners!

West Brom v The Arsenal, 8.30PM kick-off, Saturday 18th March.

We are The Arsenal.

Good evening Gooners,

It was an utterly disappointing result this morning and if not for the @!&%!$#! tragic Greek performance by the ref and his team of incompetent officials, who knows what might have truly happened?

What I can say is that the first half against zee Germans was one of our best performances this season. One can only hope that we can build on that from now till end of the season.

While the team is getting some bad press recently, unwarranted or not, what we do not like to see is fans turning on each other and the club. We are a Gooner family and victory only comes through harmony.

Here are your Arsenal Singapore updates this week.

1. Arsenal SG 10th Anniversary Celebration

As we edge closer to our Big Bash on Saturday 25th March, we have more members signing up in the past few days.  There are only 18 seats available!

Everton
Match Date: May 21st, 2017

So our best bet for silverware is the FA Cup and onto this Saturday, we play at home to giant-killers Lincoln City. Maybe it’s time to shake things up in our play and we may see Lucas, Ramsey, Welbeck getting some action alongside The Jeff or Maitland-Niles. If we do this right, a Wembley semi-final awaits and this might just please the fans temporarily. Yes, we are 90 mins away from Wembley.

Meanwhile, remember to sign up for the 10th Anniversary Party. It’s not everyday that we have a chance to have an Arsenal Invincible and Legend come to Singapore and be part of our club’s legacy.

Good morning Gooners,

March is finally here! It’s a big month for both The Arsenal and Arsenal Singapore.

For Arsenal Singapore, we are 24 days away from our 10th Anniversary Party. Yes, the Exco team is now in 5th gear and in our final stages in preparation for this big bash. To top it off, Lauren is all set to fly to Singapore in a few weeks.

Have you sent us your questions for Lauren yet? We will have a Q&A session with Lauren at the party. Send your questions to Umarani at Umarani@arsenalsingapore.com

By the way, I will probably email the Party e-invites next week! This is only for members who have paid to attend.

Everton
Match Date: May 21st, 2017
Ticket Deadline: Mar 12th, 2017

As I mentioned earlier, we play away to Liverpool this weekend. It’s a huuuuuuge task to be honest. Our form is patchy and although theirs is worse than ours, it all boils down to which team turns up and plays consistently for 90 minutes with passion and pride. Agreed?

This game will be shown at FIVE Square.

Next week, we have a slim (i haven’t heard any fat ladies singing yet) chance when we play at home to Bayern. What are the odds of a 4-0 victory folks? There’s always a chance –  I’m forever an optimist. This game WILL NOT be shown at FIVE Square.

Meanwhile, remember to sign up for the 10th Anniversary Party. It’s not everyday that we have a chance to have an Arsenal Invincible and Legend come to Singapore and be part of our club’s legacy.

Hello Gooners,

Another February, another heartbreak. It was extremely shocking and disappointing to watch the 2nd half of the game this morning. Despite all the talk, there was no action. Over and over again, we clealy lack leaders and fighters on the field!

Good evening Gooners,

Why do it the easy way when we can do it The Arsenal way? Wasn’t that on your mind when you saw the match this morning?

Astonishingly, it was another Jekyll & Hyde performance. Some say blame it on the rain? Nah! We have repeatedly paid the price for our poor starts and so we carelessly dropped 3 crucial points. I suppose the only good thing is everyone else dropped points too.

Mixed start to the Year of the Rooster, ain’t it?

Here are your Arsenal Singapore updates this week to cheer you up.

I wanna see our members come down to FIVE Square for this one. It’s gonna be massive! It’s an early kick-off. Grab your dinner there (so many cuisines to choose from)! I’ll see you there. Get ready to sing loud and proud.

Good morning Gooners,

Have you recovered from that roller-coaster match last Sunday and THAT 97th minute winner by Alexis? How cool was his penalty…. Quite Henry-esque if you ask me.

Even Le Boss showed some fire in his belly on Sunday! LOL.

3 more points in the bag and we’re 2nd now. Just need to maintain our pace against Watford next in the league.

Here is your Arsenal Singapore updates for this week.

1. FIVE Square – CLOSED for Chinese New Year

Our next game is away to Southampton for the FA Cup. This could get very tricky as they have the advantage after defeating us in the EFL Cup earlier this season. But the glamour and prestige of the FA Cup will be up for grabs and I hope our boys will raise their game. This game WILL NOT be screened at FIVE Square as they are closed for Chinese New Year.

Then we play at home to Watford on 1st Feb, 3.45am game. This will also not be screened at FIVE Square.

We will be back for the all-London derby against Conte’s Chelski on Sat 4th Feb, 8.30pm.

Good evening Gooners,

Our away win against The Swans breathed some life back into the team. G-man scored again, so did Alexis. Another clean sheet. 4 goals that night and we’re back to 4th spot again.. ahem!

Let’s see if we can continue this momentum for entire January and catch up on the other teams above us who have a tougher fixture list than us this month.

Here is your Arsenal Singapore updates this week.

1. Arsenal FC EXCLUSIVE Souvenir!

The first 88 members who turn up for this Sunday’s game will receive a mysterious souvenir, courtesy of Arsenal FC. It’s something really unique which I brought back from London recently.

All you have to do is to show your Arsenal SG membership card to the Exco table at FIVE and you will receive this special surprise. One souvenir per member first-come, first-served.

Limited to the first 88 pax (auspicious enough for CNY, obviously). You snooze, you lose… LOL!
2. Arsenal SG 10th Anniversary Celebration

We have 175 seats booked so far. Yes, only 25 seats are available and we will cap it at 200 pax!

We have been working really hard behind the scenes to secure a special guest from Arsenal to attend our big bash on Saturday 25th March at Hotel Jen Tanglin! Once this is confirmed, look out for our announcement. You wouldn’t want to miss out on this.

On Sunday, we play at home to Burnley. Le Coq, Walcott, Bellerin and rumoured to be back fit for the game. Will they start? Le Boss may tinker with the squad and keep everyone fresh. Burnley will play it tight and a certain nutcase in their team (read: jail-bird) may play and try to wind us up again. Our boys will have to be on their best behaviour and play to our strengths.

Take note of the following:

  • Five Square outlet will only open at 8pm on Sunday.
  • Only the Tapas food stall will be open. Last order is half-time, 11PM.

Good morning Gooners,

The Oli-G 2017 Extravaganza continues to save our day again. And again. And again.

Think about this. In his last 3 games, G-man (or Superman as I now call him) has scored 3 goals, made 2 assists and nabbed 3 Man-of-the-Match awards! Ok he can keep his beard for another month, I suppose.. haha!

Pity about our team performance though. Completely lacklustre against Preston and Bournemouth in our past two games. Talk is cheap and the boys keep saying they will improve but they gotta stop talking and start playing real world football.

Here is your Arsenal Singapore updates for this week.

There’s only one way to find out. Come down to FIVE Square and enjoy the full menu of Vietnamese, Japanese, Chinese and Spanish food options available with your favourite drink in hand. We hope to see our members back in full force for this one.
