Hello my Singapore Gooners! 
 
So Easter was not good this year for Arsenal. We won in 2018 and 2019. But not in 2021. I guess the international break got the better of them. Losing 3-0 at home to Liverpool is one thing but the manner the team had lost the match is another. 
 
It was an abysmal and a lousy performance from Arsenal. And while Liverpool is going through a similar patch like us, we made them look like a truly good side. Arsenal was badly outplayed throughout the game. There was no doubt that key players were missing but the line-up was not bad at all. It was their performances that were very poor and in disarray. 
 
Once again, the team has to start all over again for Arteta to rebuilt. Hopefully, the manager can rally the players, as the next two games will be tough. Especially the Europa League quarter final against Slavia Prague at the Emirates on Friday, 9 April 2021 at 3 am, in which we must play very, very well to have the advantage over them for the first leg. The Europa League is Super-Vital for Arsenal this season. Following that, Arsenal travels to Bramal Lane to play Sheffield United on Monday, 12 April 2021 at 2 am for the EPL. Two early morning games in the span of 3 days. Come on Arsenal!!
 
As previously shared, Arsenal SG will be holding an end-of-season Zoom gathering on 1 May 2021, from 4.30 pm to 6.30 pm. It’ll be something like our 10th year anniversary party when Lauren joined us. Similarly, for this event, we have secured an Arsenal legend to join us but the difference is that he won’t be physically with us. It’ll be via Zoom. But still, the fun remains. Here’s another clue, he is French and a midfielder for Arsenal!! #whoisthat 
 
We have two signed Arsenal jerseys for auction as well.  I would like to rally all our members to gather and join the event. Follow our social media for more insights of the event! Further updates will be provided in the coming weeks!
 
Come on you Gooners!!

Greetings Gooners! And Happy Good Friday to you and family.

The international break is over for now and Arsenal games are coming fast and furious in the emerging weeks. The Gunners host Liverpool on Sunday, 4 April 2021 at 3 am for an Easter holiday match. This will be a tough match following the break. Both Arteta and Klopp would want to stamp their authority, prove a point, redeem themselves, bark and swear at each other, push one another, for this match! I predict it’ll be one exciting game to watch. Come on Arsenal!!

As mentioned last week, Arsenal SG will be holding an end-of-season Zoom gathering on 1 May 2021. It will begin at 4.30 pm and is expected to end by 6.30 pm. This two hours’ event is “gooner” be thrilling and fun for all our members! The most exciting part is that an Arsenal legend will be joining us in this event. He is French!! #whoisthat Keep that day free and join us!

We have two signed Arsenal jerseys for auction as well. It will be wonderful for all of our 300 members to gather for this legendary online event. Follow our social media for more insights of the event! More updates will be provided in the following few weeks!

Come on you Gooners!!

Greetings Gooners! What can I say about last week but it was definitely unpleasant.

It was an abysmal performance from the Gunners for the 1-0 home loss against Olympiacos. Given the result and performance, Arsenal was through to the quarter finals of the Europa League. We have been drawn against Slavia Prague, a team that has since evolved and beaten Leicester and Rangers. Can they bring Arsenal down too or allow the Gunners the opportunity to play against Unai Emery’s Villareal?

West Ham was another game that we should have lost but managed to draw. The Hammers thought they were playing in the League Cup for the first half and the next half, Arsenal showed a mighty comeback. Ødegaard proved to be an important player. Sign him! 3-3 was a fair result eventually.

It is international break for now and on 4 April 2021, Arsenal hosts the Champions followed by the quarter final. The Europa League is the only competition left for salvation and I really hope we can do a repeat of last season when we win the FA Cup. Let’s pray for Arteta’s magic!

Arsenal SG will be holding an end-of-season Zoom gathering on 1 May 2021. Keep the day free and join us! We have two signed Arsenal jerseys for auction, unveiling of our new Arsenal SG membership card and the promotion, a Q&A with an Arsenal Legend perhaps… more updates soon. Just reserve the date as it will be an exciting one!!!
