Arsenal Singapore Newsletter 24 May 2015

Hello Fellow Gooners,

Barring a catastrophic loss to WBA or a loss and Steve Bruce deciding he is still a manc and throwing the Hull Tigers under a bus at KC Stadium this Sunday, Arsenal will finish 3rd and avoid playing the CL qualifying games in August.  In other words …. we just need a draw this Sunday!

We’ve reached the final game of the season and what a roller coaster it has been, so many injuries in the 1st half to key players left us looking like we would be skipping the Champions League next season but a great run of wins in the 2nd half made sure we qualified again for the umpteenth consecutive time.

Both Molly Roffey’s Bras Basah and Dorsett will screen AFCvWBA at 10pm on Sun 24 May.  Signups and renewals will only be at Bras Basah from 730 to 930pm.  Come down and renew if you haven’t done so yet so that you can get your new Arsenal Singapore premium, a yellow scarf that you can wear for next week’s FA Cup Final!!  #SheWoreAYellowRibbon (in case you hadn’t read about it yet, Arsenal will be wearing yellow for the final this year.)

Speaking of which, our FA Cup Final will also be screened at Bras Basah and Dorsett at 1230am on Sun 31 May (Sat night).  Those electing to watch at Dorsett, please lower your volume with your cheering and singing to avoid complaints from the hotel guests upstairs, and this venue will be open to both members and non-members.  For those going to Bras Basah, signups and renewals will be from 830 to 1030pm on Sat 30 March.  For the 1st 50 members at Bras Basah on Sat night at 830pm, we will be giving out a $10 Molly Roffey’s voucher for use that evening!  So do come down early and grab a seat!  Bras Basah will be open only to Arsenal Singapore members from 830 to 11pm and open to the public, space permitting, after 11pm so get in there!!  There will be new flags and pennants sent to us by Arsenal to add to the atmosphere!  So sing your hearts out!

“WHAT DID SHE WEAR?”

Ticket sales for members going to the Barclays Asia Trophy are closed and we’ll have over 300 in our section for 15 July and over 500 for 18 July.  We will let you know when to come and get your tickets as soon as we get them from the organizers.  Until then, do google for and watch videos of Arsenal chants and learn them, you will be sitting in the singing section so you’re expected to be loud and proud!!

That’s it for this season!  See you in July! (I’m off to eat some leftover durian ;-))

Ooo To Be A .. Gooner!!

Hello Fellow Singapore Gooners,

Well that was a disappointing result last night against Swansea City.  I guess it was inevitable that our 11 game unbeaten run in all competitions, since 1 March, would come to an end sometime and of course Fabianski would have to have a great game against us.  We just have to win the next 4 games against Man U, Sunderland, West Brom and of course Aston Villa!!

Due to the scousers draw against chelski, Arsenal are now guaranteed to be in the CL next season, for the 16th consecutive year.  If you think that’s no big deal, just ask the scousers and the scum, they spend more than we do and still cannot regularly get into the CL, only the 3 clubs significantly richer than us have been able to do so and even then, manure failed last season.

Also happy to report that we celebrated St Totteringham’s Day again this season, for the 20th year in a row.  #NorthLondonIsRed #ItsHappenedAgain #MindTheGap #ForeverInOurShadow

The Barclays Asia Trophy details have now been officially announced and many of you have already bought your tickets to that event in our exclusive members only sales period.  If you have not yet done so, the FINAL day for buying tickets through us and sitting with us in the exclusive Arsenal Singapore Cat 3 section is this Sunday 17 May from 730pm to 1030pm, before our 11pm kickoff against Man U at Molly Roffey’s Bras Basah (MRBB).  Again, each member will be allowed to buy 2 tickets.  We will however be allowing new membership signups at the same time so get your friends and family members to sign up as well if you need more tickets.

It will be super packed at MRBB so do come down very early if you want a seat and Molly Roffey’s Dorsett will also be screening ManU v Arsenal at 11pm.  Please note for either location if you are coming down with your friend who supports ManU, please tell them that these are NOT neutral venues, they cannot wear ManU kits and they should behave accordingly.  Of course they can clap and cheer but no taunting and booing of Arsenal.  Molly Roffey’s management reserves the right to ask them to leave.

As a buildup to the BAT event. Ian Wright is in Singapore and will be taking part in a Twitter Takeover tomorrow 13 May from 330pm to 5pm hosted by The New Paper.  To take part,

1.       Tweet your questions that you’ve always wanted to ask Ian to @TheNewPaper,

2.       Include the hashtag #TNPBAT2015,

3.       Follow @TheNewPaper and look out for his responses!

That’s it for this week,

Come On Arsenal!!

Hello Fellow Gooners,

Eric’s going to be busy the next month due to work so I’ll be taking over.

Looks like the Arsenal supporters at the Emirates hit a raw nerve when we sang “Boring, boring Chelsea!”  From their detestable manager to their racist captain, they wouldn’t stop commenting on it.  Must be deep down they know they are boring and that after spending so much $$$$$ on their team, their owner is probably just as unhappy with their brand of soul sucking, sleep inducing, bus parking football.  What I thought was frankly ludicrous was their reaction at the final whistle, they were celebrating like they won the league.  What utter muppets!

Read this on the internet, which those blue scum should take note:

OPEN LETTER TO CHELSEA FANS

Dear Chelsea fans,

Congrats on winning your 5th league title (most likely) but FOR YOUR INFORMATION

Aston villa won their 5th league trophy in 1900 (115 yrs ago)
Sunderland did it in 1913 (102 yrs ago)
Arsenal did it in 1938 (77 yrs ago)
Everton did it in 1939 (76 yrs ago)
Liverpool did it in 1947 (68 yrs ago)
Man U did it in 1957 (58 yrs ago)

Winning 5 league trophies isn’t any achievement that hasn’t been seen before so please stop worrying our ears with the noise of being league champs.

Boring and no class to top it off.

Our next game is away to Hull City and that kicks off at 3am on Tues 5 May.  Due to the timing, thanks to Sky Sports, Molly Roffey’s will not be open for this.  The same for the following week when we play Swansea at 3am on Tues 12 May.

Hey Goonerettes, we NEED your help!!  The next round of our community service event is slated on Sun 10 May 2015 from 3-5 pm at the Children’s Aid Society.  This time, the activities will involve the girls from the home and we are looking for female members to volunteer in addition to our male members who help out with the boys.  Those interested, please sms or whatsapp Shai directly at 98440234.

That’s it for this week!

Come On Arsenal!!
