Good evening Singapore Gooners,
The theme this week is all about sharing. Sharing the love for The Arsenal amongst yourselves. We had our first win of the season against Watford recently with a convincing performance. Most of our lads will be back this weekend, including our newest signings Mustafi and Perez. You can bet Molly will be singing their new songs for sure. Have you heard the all-new Singapore version of the Mustafi song? Ahem.
Second sharing, have you seen this eye-catching video of Mustafi and Mertesacker dancing? You have been warned:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JihqELmrBuE
Third sharing, the Arsenal Legends rolled back the years and rolling good times when they beat Milan Glorie 4-2 over the weekend. Wasn’t it a magical 90 mins of footy action watching your past heroes in action? One of the key highlights (which didn’t result in a goal) was this “Wengerball” magic moment: http://www.101greatgoals.com/101ggvideos/skills/arsenal-legends-playing-wengerball-ac-milan-video/
Maybe we should have the Arsenal Legends v Arsenal current XI. Not a bad idea eh?
1. Arsenal 5K Run
Fourth sharing, we raised a total of S$3,150 from members by end Aug 2016. The club did a top-up and we donated a total of £3,000 (or approx S$5,600) to The Arsenal Foundation. And we were informed yesterday that Arsenal SG raised the highest amount of funds amongst all supporters club this year. For our efforts, the club will receive a signed Arsenal jersey. Kudos to all runners, donors and buyers of the special commemorative cap!

Are you excited to see Xhaka, Perez, Mustafi, Cazorla, Coq, Elneny, Giroud, Alexis and Ozil finally on the same pitch? I just hope they can share the goals amongst themselves… hah!
