SALIBA
Good day Gooners!

Bournemouth 0 – 3 Arsenal
A brace from Ødegaard and absolute screamer from Saliba secured all 3 points for us as we maintain the ONLY team in the league with a 100% record of 3 wins from 3. Do I hear a ‘we are top of the league’ chant? Still very very early days, but the team is playing well and we can be very happy with how the league has started for us. Back home, #WTF was super packed for the late kick off, kudos to everyone who came down and us huddling together waiting for the rain to stop after the game is one for the memories eh? Fingers crossed we continue to pick up 3 points with no rain this time round. On to the next game!
 
Next game: Arsenal vs Fulham LIVE @ #WTF
Next game: Arsenal vs Fulham Sunday morning 28 August 12.30am LIVE @ #WTF 49 Club Street
The Arsenal will be back at the Emirates this weekend playing against Fulham on Sunday morning and YES! #WTF will be open for us to gather and watch the game together! Think Fulham will prove to be a good test for us as they are one of the other sides who hasn’t lost a game this season with a strong showing against Liverpool and an impressive win against Brentford. May Gabriel Jesus get back in the goals this weekend for a hat trick and maintain our 100% record! As usual at #WTF, there will be a cover charge of $15 on entry, which comes with a drink. There is also a 20% discount on food and beverages, and 15% discount on non-house pour alcohol. See you guys this weekend!

Match Tickets at The Emirates
Anyone interested in purchasing match tickets through the club, please email to dhanesh@arsenalsingapore.com for details and enquiries. Arsenal provides us with a ‘window’ to apply for each game, which usually closes 8-10 weeks prior to the match. So, it is important for you to review our website in advance when planning a trip to London as once the window shuts, there is no way of applying for the tickets for that particular match.
 
 
Cheers!

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!
 
Have you renewed your membership?

Hei Gooners!
 
Arsenal Sg wishes all our Buddhist members a Happy Vesak Day and to the others, a happy holiday. May we all have peace and tranquillity in our lives. We need this because of the current situation with Arsenal. The team is on the verge of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
 
Whilst the wins against West Ham and Leeds proved to be of utmost importance to challenge for the 4th spot, the loss against Spurs last Friday essentially makes the challenge very complex.

It was supposedly a defining moment for Arsenal at the Spurs Stadium but the team faltered after just 22 minutes into the game. We all know what happened. Well…
 
It’s now an arduous fight till the end, for the next two games, to determine if Arsenal qualifies for the Champions League or the Europa.

Two very big games are coming up, an away match against Newcastle on 17 May 2022 at 3 am and a home game against Everton on 22 May 2022 at 11 pm. Will we be celebrating St Totteringham Day on the final match of the season?

It’s gonna be a big season finale this season for us Gooners. It’s like watching the end of Money Heist!
 
We have just received the signed prints from Parlour. We will make arrangements for the prize winners to receive their prizes in due course.  
 
Membership renewal for next season has started. It is $30. Use the link: https://members.arsenalsingapore.com/v2/membership for the renewal.
 
Have a wonderful long weekend Gooners!!
