It’s been a while since I’ve last written a proper newsletter and here we are at the start of a very special month for our country.
It’s the month of our Golden Jubilee but just as important, our beloved Arsenal will be back in competitive action very soon!
Just two weeks ago, we were all cheering them on at our National Stadium and here we are on the crux of yet another new season. I believe I speak for nearly all of us Singapore Gooners that it was a fantastic experience with the Arsenal in town.
Personally, I was really proud that we were able to host so many travelling Gooners from around the world and had the chance to extend our hospitality to them throughout the entire week.
Plenty has happened since then on the Arsenal front and we have every reason to go into the season in a confident mood.
Technically, we start our season on National Day but first, we have the small matter of the Community Shield onSunday 2 August against that bus stop in Fulham (or should it be against that bus from that bus stop in Fulham). It’s a glorified friendly at best but any match against that scummy lot and manager is usually anything but friendly.
Kickoff is at 10pm and a newly-renovated Molly Roffey’s at Bras Basah will be open for it! That’s right, if you didn’t know, our home went through a thorough refurbishment from the day after the Barclays Asia Trophy final and it now carries a refreshing new look just in time for the new season. So make sure you come on down and join us!
And to mark their reopening, Molly Roffey’s at Bras Basah has a special offer for all draft beers (except Guinness) going at only $10 from the second half of our match!
We are also restarting our membership renewals and signups so do look for us from 8pm to 9.30pm at the usual spot if you have yet to renew for this season. Membership does have its privileges as many of you would have seen during the week of the BAT so make sure you extend your ‘contract’ with us!
Unlike Theo Walcott and his contract, our process is very straightforward so sign da ting and you will continue to enjoy the benefits that come with being an Arsenal Singapore member!
See you on Sunday and COYG!
P.S. Molly Roffey’s at Dorsett will also be screening the match.
