Arsenal Singapore Newsletter, 13 January 2021

Greetings Gooners!!

Arsenal defended the FA Cup title well, with a win against Newcastle last Sunday. We were almost knocked out if not for the skills and bravery of Leno. The players huff and puff throughout the match and eventually, secured a win, with a brace from Emile and Auba in extra time.  What a start to the FA Cup campaign! That special sleeve patch, with number 14, is top-class. Next round, it is either Southampton or Shrewsbury.

There is no transfer/loan news for this window at the moment. The good news is that Holding has signed a new contract. He is not a super-central defender kind of player, but he has been impressive, and he is English. It is unlikely that Arsenal will buy new players, other than looking for a proper deputy for Leno but who knows. There might be a miracle!         

It is back to the EPL this week. Another early morning game this Friday, 15 January 2021 at 4 am against Crystal Palace at the Emirates. Come on you Gunners!

Arsenal Singapore Newsletter, 5 January 2021

Greetings Gooners!!

It’s a brand new week of 2021!

What a refreshing one, to start the year with an Arsenal win. With this Covid restriction, I do miss the snow falling on me. But what I missed the most, after so long, was to see Arsenal win with style and conviction. It was one of the best performances from Arteta’s changed side. It was worth waking up, very early that morning to savour the win.    

With that win, Arsenal now lies at the 11th position in the table. Some say that Arsenal’s position is a joint-5th position based on 23-point. That’s another way of looking at the glass. But there are 21 more games to play and a lot of points at stake. #trusttheprocess 

Arsenal next hosts the Toons Army on Sunday, 10 January 2021 at 1.30 am. Let’s hope that Arsenal can replicate their performance against the black and white. Come on you Gunners!

Arsenal Singapore Newsletter, 31 December 2020

Greetings Gooners!

Hope your Christmas was enjoyable amidst this COVID environment. In my last newsletter, Arsenal had played 3 matches, against Man City, Chelsea and Brighton. Let’s recap!

Arsenal lost to Man City and exited from the EFL Cup. Expected!

Arsenal did not lose to Chelsea. Omg!! What a surprise..

Arsenal did not lose again, against Brighton.. What a f#$*@& surprise!!!!

Yeah!! Arsenal is back to winning ways, and we have now won back to back victory to end 2020. Has Arteta found his mojo or the players found theirs? The last 2 games comprised of a team blended with the experience and the young players. Can this system work in the long run? Perhaps, but in my opinion, the team needs some beefing up, if the Club needs to claw back to the top 4 position.

Arsenal travels to the Hawthorns this weekend for the next EPL game against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, 3 January 2021 at 4 am. There will be a lot of late games in the coming weeks. So, it’ll be early night sleep for everyone, for an early game to watch.

On behalf of Arsenal Sg Exco, we wish you a happy and healthy new year!!  

COYG!!
