Hello Singapore Gooners,

May Day, May Day!

Yes that holiday is upon us this weekend but today I’m referring to our obvious spiralling in our form and luck.

How did we go from being top of the league in January to struggling to even stay at our “customary” 4th spot?

I can count on one hand the number of players who have excelled this entire season. That’s easily less than half of the current first XI.

And last Sunday, we were appalling, dreadful and downright depressing. Yes, I’m calling a spade, a spade. It makes you wonder what they actually do in training sessions, doesn’t it?

Bad News: 3 more matches and we may struggle to get max points.

Good News: The new EPL season starts in 3.5 months. Woohoo!

Membership Renewal & New Sign-ups
We will run renewals for the next 3 weeks and it’s your last chance to do it this season. Get your hands on the All-new Arsenal Singapore polo t-shirt. Look out for the Exco team outside Molly only from 11pm to 12 midnight on Sat 30th April.

I mentioned last week that we may have some events lined up in Singapore during pre-season and probably as early as August 2016. These events will be exclusively for Arsenal Singapore members only. If you have not renewed your membership by then, you may not be able to participate. Next season, Arsenal Singapore will be celebrating our 10th Anniversary of being an Official Arsenal Supporters’ Club (since 2007). So it will be an awesome season coming up.

This weekend, The Canaries come over to Emirates. It’s another potential relegation team so you know what to expect… Them parking the bus (Jose style).

Will we be able to unlock their defence? Will Coq return to the first team and partner Elneny? Will Wilshere start for the first time in nearly a year? Let’s find out together.

Arsenal v Norwich City, Sunday 1st May, 12.30am kick-off!

Come on, Arsenal!

Good morning Singapore Gooners,

Have you had your breakfast yet? I’m just sipping my hot cuppa tea preparing this for you.

Well well well, weren’t we all let down (ONCE AGAIN) last Sunday? I wasn’t feeling quite well so I didn’t get to watch the entire match but I think if i did, it would have made me feel a lot, lot worse! Nothing riles me up more than a lack of passion. Passion from people who get paid millions to do their job!

If there’s a way to reach out to the players, here’s what my message would be:

“SHAPE UP OR SHIP OUT!”

I don’t think it’s harsh of me to say such words when we’ve been sliding down the table like there’s no tomorrow! Lack of teamwork, grit, passion, mental fortitude – ZERO! 5 more games to go and we seem too comfy in our “customary” 4th position.

We will definitely expect changes in player movement once the season ends!

Membership Renewal & New Sign-ups
Shout out to last season’s members who have yet to collect your Yellow Away scarf and membership cards, please come down on Sunday to collect them. We seek your cooperation on this. We can’t keep them for you forever 🙂

We will continue to run renewals for the next 4 weeks and it’s your last chance to do it this season. Get your hands on the new Arsenal Singapore polo t-shirt. Look out for the Exco team outside Molly only from 7.30pm-8.30pm on Sunday 24th April.

We may have some events lined up in Singapore during pre-season and even in early August 2016. These events will be for Arsenal Singapore members only. If you have not renewed your membership by then, you may not be able to participate. Next season, Arsenal Singapore will be celebrating our 10th Anniversary of being an Official Arsenal Supporters’ Club (since 2007). You know we will have some awesome events lined up. Don’t say I never say ah….So heads up first!

So tomorrow morning, The Arsenal take on W.B.A. at 2.45am. This match will not be shown at Molly. The Baggies are (almost) safe from relegation. But which Arsenal team will turn up? Will Joel Campbell ever play again this season? Will Mertesacker come back to the First XI?

On Sunday, relegation-favourites Fat Sam’s Black Cats is up against The Arsenal. Honestly, I am really worried about this game. They will go all out and make it a physical game for us. We will get bruised in this encounter. Come on down and sing your hearts out. I’ll see you there!

Sunderland v The Arsenal, Sun 24th April, 9pm kick-off!

We Are The Arsenal!

Dear Singapore Gooners,

Good evening and since it’s almost the end of Thursday, I hope by now you’re feeling much better and have recovered from the ___________ (fill in the blank) performance the team had against West Ham. I think many of you would agree that it so succinctly summed up our unpredictable season.

To go 2-0 up and draw 3-3??? Sigh.

To go 2-0 up and came this close to losing? Sigh again.

I have read a couple of reviews of our performance and none said it better than Arseblog. You can read it here: http://arseblog.com/2016/04/west-ham-3-3-arsenal/

Actually the only 2 bright spots, to me, were:
1. Elneny-Coq partnership is strong and will continue to grow even stronger.
2. Koscielny is Arsenal’s highest scoring defender in EPL history. (ok ok not what you were expecting).

Membership Renewal & New Sign-ups
So far almost 100 Gooners have renewed over past 2 weekends. They were excited to get their hands on our all-new Arsenal Singapore polo t-shirt. It really has a nice embroidered logo patch with white sleeves on a red shirt. Look out for the Exco team outside Molly only from 9.30-10.30pm on Sunday 17th April.

So it’s Crystal Palace that will come over to the Emirates Stadium this Sunday. They are in a relegation battle and so this can only mean one thing…. They will make life hell for us! Unless the Gunners can prove us wrong. Only one way to find out.

Arsenal v Crystal Palace, Sun 17th April, 11pm kick-off!

Victory Through Harmony,
