Arsenal Singapore Newsletter, 20 January 2022

Greeting Gooners,

I’m sure that you have seen our display (or at least the highlights) of the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final against Liverpool. The red card for Xhaka at an early stage forced Arteta’s hand with his in-game management. The boys defended really well against the relentless Red’s attack. Saka got our only promising chance but his mistimed swing ended up off-target.

It was a remarkable result, getting a draw at Anfield. And on Friday morning, 21 January 2021 at 3.45 a.m., we host the Reds at the Emirates for the second leg. A win against them and we make the final. The only cup final within our grasp. Having had the NLD postponed, it’s unlikely that we’ll get another postponement.

We host Burnley at home in the following league fixture on Sunday, 23 January 2022 at 10.00 p.m. Submit your predictions for the Burnley game to janeil@arsenalsingapore.com.

We bid farewell to our Bosnian tank. Sead Kolasinac has left the club after his contract was terminated by mutual consent to join Matteo Guendouzi in Marseille. We wish him all the best.

Greeting Gooners,
 
Having suffered consecutive losses and an exit from the FA Cup, it’s a tough time to be a Gooner. While disappointing, we have to move on. The only chance for silverware we have this season is the Carabao Cup.
 
We have two important games, coming fast and furious. First, the Carabao Cup semi-final (first leg) against Liverpool in Anfield on Friday, 14 January 2022 at 3.45 a.m. Next is the away match in the league against Spurs on Monday, 17 January 2022 at 12.30 a.m.
 
With the COVID-19 situation, AFCON going on and loan transfer of AMN, do we have sufficiently strong squad available? Looks like a massive headache for Arteta. Glad I’m not the gaffer.
 
Don’t forget to submit the predictions for the Spurs game to janeil@arsenalsingapore.com

Greeting Gooners,

Arsenal started the 2022 with a heart-aching loss. Despite that, the game showcased so much positivity in the way Arsenal played and how Man City was outplayed. Until now, I still tell myself, ‘if only Martinelli had scored from that rebound’. Well, in order to win sometimes, you need luck, skills and tactics, composure or some may say, corruption. Despite having VAR, the outcome went against us. That’s football, full of ups and downs. 

Next game, on paper, is the 3rd round of the FA Cup, since the Carabao Cup semi-final against Liverpool has been postponed. Both matches are equally important. Arsenal needs to win something this season and those cups have a direct path to European competition. The team deserves it for the extraordinary journey they’ve gone through this season.

Due to the postponement, Arsenal has to play consecutive matches in lightning speed unless midway there is postponement. But the EPL game against Spurs is the most important. A win against them would solidify the 4th position in the table.  

I look forward to the next Arsenal’s away game on 10 January 2021 at 1.10 am against Nottingham Forest.
