Arsenal Singapore Newsletter, 25 July 2021

Hei Gooners,

A very good Sunday to all of you! This is the 50th newsletter thus far. Have you been reading them? I hope so… I am not a writer but I am doing this for the love of Arsenal and Arsenal Singapore. Please pardon my shortcomings #hehehe.  

Did anyone catch the London derby yesterday, between Arsenal and Millwall? This is one of those rare derbies between the two. The last time they played was in 1995 and Arsenal lost the match. This year, Arsenal beat them convincingly to a score of 4-1. This was just an unrecorded friendly game that has no bearing whatsoever. But the lads played very well, albeit against a very weak side. In my experience, when a team play against a weak side and thrashed them, this builds confidence for the players for future games #justsaying

Three more weeks before the start of the 2021/2022 EPL season. So far, we’ve signed Sambi 23 and Tavares 20. Smith Rowe is now our new coveted number 10. But is the team completed? I suspect that Arteta might buy 1-2 more players to strengthen the team. It is definitely exciting for Arsenal as well as the fans worldwide to look forward to, as the team rebuilds for the future. Arsenal have two more friendlies, against Chelsea and Spurs, in preparation for the upcoming season.

At the moment, the English FA has directed for a strict regime in order for fans to watch the game, with stringent covid vaccination requirement and with limited seats at the Emirates. There is no update on the requirement for travelling fans. And for Singapore Gooners, without a doubt, we can’t travel to the UK for the games with this Covid environment.

We are back in phase 2 and the situation has worsened with so many reported daily infections. But let’s look forward to celebrate the NDP on 21 August 2021 #wink

By now, you have seen the players wearing the new home 2021/2022 jersey. The design is very special this season and we have a special pricing for members as well, courtesy of Weston Corp. There are also more varieties for members this season. The pricing for members is as follow:

Greetings Gooners,

A warm welcome to our new members who have signed up for Arsenal Sg. Thank you for joining this wonderful supporter’s club. It is the best club in Singapore!
 
Did you catch the dramas in the EUFA EURO 2021?  Finally, a final for England since 1966. Is it coming home or coming Rome? The final is this Monday morning and I suspect that it will be an entertaining one. Surprisingly, the Azzuris play great attacking football. Our Bukayo Saka is doing very well in the tournament. He was much preferred by Southgate, given the availability of Rashford, Sancho, Foden and Grealish in the squad. Hope he gets to play and win an international medal.  
 
Arsenal FC
Arsenal will start their pre-season training next week in Scotland. We have signed a young defender, Nuno Tavares from Benfica. Another young one, Guendozi, has left Arsenal for Marseille. Martinelli has left Arsenal too, albeit a short one, for the Tokyo Olympics with the Brazil national team. Best of luck to him. Gabriel was initially shortlisted to join our speedy winger but he pulled out after a knee injury.

Dear Gooners,

A short break from the EUFA EURO 2021. So far, we have Saka versus Leno and Xhaka versus former-Handsome bugger (Giroud) in the round of 16. Our Tierney played well for Scotland but his journey has ended in the group stage.   

Arsenal FC

Still no confirmed news on the transfer aspect. But we have Tierney, who has committed a long term deal with the Gunners. Also, it seems Ben White from Brighton might be joining Arsenal. I think when the EURO ends, we will see transfer news coming in fast and furious.

Just being random, when the first Fast and Furious movie was released in 2001, Arsenal won the league. Fast and Furious 9 has just been released. Hmmm… #possibility #likethatalsocan
