Arsenal Singapore Newsletter, 5 June 2022

Hello Gooners!
It’s been a while since my last newsletter.. not that I was doing some soul searching on why Arsenal was in the fifth position. I was simply busy and I apologise for the short hiatus.

I’m not trying to resurrect the sentiments about Arsenal, given that the league had ended about 2 weeks ago. It’s just that I want to share my view about how the team has done well to secure 5th position. With the manner we started the 2021/2022 season, the topsy turvy performances, the players’ issues, the thin squad, etc, Arsenal did ok and eventually qualify for the Europa League for this coming season.
While there’s no Champions League this time, in some aspects, there’s an improvement and there’s certainly progress. Perhaps, it’s a step-by-step process for Arsenal to be a major contender in time to come.

Never stop loving Arsenal!! We will get there!
