Arsenal Singapore Newsletter 24th November 2016

extra

Good afternoon Singapore Gooners,

To our newly-signed up members, hello and welcome to probably the best Supporters’ Club in Singapore. This is your weekly newsletter from Arsenal Singapore. We will keep you informed of the latest exclusive Singapore promotions, news, updates and freebies (whilst stocks last!).

How many of you woke up to catch the PSG clash? I found it very alarming that we played in a disjointed manner. We all know the “Movember myth” and this morning’s performance almost led to a possible disaster. And with our Manure draw, we’re riding our wave of luck this month. Personally, I can’t wait for the month to be over! LOL.

Here are your updates for this week.

1. FIVE Square

It was brilliant to see over 350 Gooners gather last Saturday. Feedback from members so far is that service has improved and food & drinks were served faster compared to the Sp*ds game.

We will continue to fine-tune along the way. FIVE management and Exco team thank you for your understanding.

  • For this Sunday’s match against Bournemouth, FIVE will open its doors at 6pm.
  • Only the Tapas food stall will be open. Last order is half-time, 11pm.
  • Food ordering will be self-service at the stalls. You can make payment at the stall itself, enter your mobile number in the system upon ordering and once your food is ready, you will receive a SMS to collect your food.
  • Also if members wish to book a table, FIVE will accept reservations only via email: square@fivebar.sg

2. Arsenal Match Tickets

If you’re in London in early February, you can apply for match tickets. Send your ticket applications to Umarani at tickets@arsenalsingapore.com

Hull,
Match Date: Feb 11th, 2017
Ticket Deadline: Dec 7th, 2016

3. Membership Renewals and Sign-ups

This Sunday is definitely your last opportunity to renew your membership. Also get your Gooner mates/family/partner-to-be to sign-up as members. No further extensions after 27th November.

You may also collect your membership cards and the all-new red & white polo t-shirt. New stock for all sizes are available: XS, S, M, L, XL, 2XL, and 3XL.

Our 10th Anniversary Party is coming up in March 2017. This is strictly for members only.
Announcement for the Anniversary Party will be made tomorrow!

It’s another home match this Sunday. We really have to chalk up more points at home if we’re going to make a serious challenge for the title. It’s pretty tight up there if you look at the EPL table.

There are some tired legs on the pitch as you have seen in the past few games. So let’s hope the squad turns up on the day to shine and make it count. Don’t worry Jack Wilshere won’t be playing against us so he may just enjoy his “return Home”.

Let’s get behind the team and bring the house down!

The Arsenal v Bournemouth, 10.15PM kick-off, Sunday 27th Nov.
The Exco team will be on duty from 8.30pm to 9.30pm.

We are The Arsenal.

Victory Through Harmony,

Good evening Gooners,

Are you enjoying the November Rain? When it rains, it definitely pours. The international break is finally over. Even better news is that the next international break is only in March 2017!

We kicked off November with a drab draw with THAT team down the lane. That was 2 points dropped for sure. More eventful that night was the fact that we had more than 400 Gooners packed at FIVE Square, the new Home of Arsenal Singapore.

Wasn’t it amazing when the whole place was filled up and we were one BIG Gooner family? How did it feel when we all sang at the top of our lungs all night long… Which was YOUR fav Sp*rs song? LOL.

Due to the overwhelming crowd on that night which neither the Exco team nor the management of FIVE could have predicted, we received feedback that night and the following day on how service and operational issues can be improved. We thank you for this and have already discussed with FIVE management on improvements. There will be ongoing adjustments for tweaking as this partnership with FIVE grows.

  • For this weekend’s match against Manure, FIVE will double the staff on duty so that everyone will get their drinks as fast as possible.
  • For food options, all 5 stalls will be fully operational every Saturday night till 10pm.
  • Food ordering will be self-service at the stalls. You can make payment at the staff itself, enter your mobile number in the system upon ordering and once your food is ready, you will receive a SMS to collect your food. Yes, it’s pretty hi-tech if you haven’t already noticed.
  • You have 5 stalls offering Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese and local pub grub.
  • Also if members wish to book a table, FIVE will accept reservations only via email: square@fivebar.sg

Here are more updates for this week.

4. Membership Renewals and Sign-ups

You only have 2 more matches in November to come down to FIVE Square to renew your membership or get your friends/family/future in-laws to sign-up as members. No further extensions after 27th November.

Our 10th Anniversary Party is coming up in March 2017. This is strictly for members only. And you know the Exco team always takes care of our members. Look out for our announcement on the Anniversary Party sometime next week!

The Exco team will be on duty from 7pm to 8pm.

Finally this Saturday, we play a team beneath us (in the table, I mean). Will we have the upper hand? Will our fine form edge out the Devils in Manchester? Will Alexis defy Wenger and insist on playing? Will Oli-G be our saviour? Will it be a cracker of a game? Will Maureen-ho shake hands with Wenger and blame you-know-who for still living in a hotel in Manchester and can’t get the monkey off his back?

How we do it, we don’t know! How we do it, we don’t care! All we care is 3 POINTS!

Let’s get behind the team and bring the house down!

Man United v The Arsenal, 8.30PM kick-off, Saturday 19th Nov.

We are The Arsenal.

Good mooooooooooooorning Gooners,

Wakey Wakey!!! What a smash-and-grab victory this morning. We came back from 2-0 down in the first 16 minutes and rallied to 2-2 by half-time. Magical Mesut struck again to kill off Ludogorets for a fantastic 3-2 win on a cold Tuesday night in Sofia!

We also ended Oktoberfest with a Bang: 4-1! Alexis scored a brace and ditto, Oli G!! Has the G-man found his mojo back even though he has not shaved his beard for years now and throwing away his good looks?

Plenty of updates for you this week so here goes.

1. Arsenal SG Football Team
