Hello Fellow Gooners,
Like I wrote last week it’s much easier to write this after a win. And what a win it was. Poldi scored in 2 mins and if you have not seen it yet, go watch Ramsey’s second goal. What a belter!!! Goal of the tournament for sure!! So we finished 4-1 vs Galatasaray with braces by Podolski and Ramsey. Unfortunately Anderlecht were only able to draw against Dortmund so we finish second in our group. Here are the teams we could face in the Knockout phase: Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid, Monaco, Bayern Munich, PSG or Barcelona, and FC Porto. Would be nice if we got Monaco or Porto but I suspect not.
OK we had a horrifically disastrous game last Sat and I’m not going to comment on it except to say that Anthony Taylor thought he was umpiring a rugby match.
So moving on, we host Newcastle this Sun 14 Dec at 1:30am at Molly Roffey’s Bras Basah. Due to the late hour, the Dorsett outlet will NOT be open.
Signups for our kickass year end buffet/charity auction hosted by none other than our former President Kevin Tan on 28 December are now nearly all filled. This is an annual event specifically meant for current Arsenal Singapore members only so unfortunately partners/spouses who are not members can’t attend. There are a few spots left so email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can attend. First come first served so last call for signups.
Finally if you hadn’t read about it. We drew Hull City (yup again) in the FA Cup to be played on 3, 4 or 5 Jan 2015. What are the chances that our final game in the FA Cup last season was against them and now our first game this season is again against them? We should be so lucky to get Yeovil Town/Accrington, or Watford, or Wimbledon or Sheffield Wednesday.
That’s it from me, Eric will be back next week!
