Arsenal Singapore Newsletter, 2 September 2021

Greetings Gooners,

Let’s recap, on our last week’s performances. A 0-6 win against West Brom in the EFL Cup.. It’s marvellous. And then a 5-0 drubbing by Man City at the Etihad.. It’s embarrassing. Some may say it’s humiliating. Others are already asking for blood, to sack Arteta. Even a former player had a hint of sarcasm in his social media post. For me, the 8-2 loss to Manchester United in the 2011/2012 season was the top of the humiliation table. And so, the 5-0 loss doesn’t feel so bad.  

After 3 EPL games, it is three losses, 9 goals conceded, and 0 goals scored. Despite these shocking results, it is good that we remain positive. There are still 35 more games to play. Perhaps Arsenal is giving the others a 9-point head start #yaright. For now, the international break is a good period for the team to recover.

Our final signing for this season is a Japanese defender, Tomiyasu 18. I hope he doesn’t defend like Xhaka using the Kamikaze approach, and importantly, not turn into an unused player like his predecessor, Inamoto, Myaichi and Asano. Also, all the best to Bellerin, Nelson and Runarsson on their loan moves to Real Betis, Feyenoord and OH Leuven respectively. Not forgetting, a farewell for Willian, as he returned to the Brazilian league. Kudos to him for terminating his contract prematurely and saving Arsenal some moolah.    

Last Saturday, the club held its AGM with about 30 members present. The Exco team for the 2021/2022 season is featured in our social media platform. Check it out! We hope for your continued support for this season. Rest assured that the Exco will continue to serve the members and organise exciting events throughout the season. Don’t forget, this season, we will be celebrating our 15th year anniversary. We hope to surprise you!

Greetings Gooners,
 
So far, it’s two games with two losses for the Gunners. 4 goals conceded and 0 goals scored. Some have already ousted the team, lambasted the manager, ostracized the owner, blah, bah, blah… well, it’s just two games #chilllah.
 
The good news is that Ødegaard is back with Arsenal permanently and we have secured Ramsdale as Leno’s deputy. Some players have also recovered from their ‘illness’. Let’s hope for a convincing performance from the team, now that the main players are available.
 
They will play an away match in the EFL cup, against West Brom tomorrow, 26 August 2021 at 3 am. Following that, on Saturday, 28 August 2021, they travel to the Etihad and pit against the English Champions at 7.30 pm.
 
Come on Arsenal!

Hei Gooners,

How’s your week been? Mine has been max-out with work and I really look forward to the coming weekend.

Talking about the weekend, the previous one was a big, big surprise. There was so much hype to welcome the new EPL season, especially when Arsenal played the opening match. Alas, the game ended with disappointment for me and I am sure for the others as well. Losing the first game is not a good start!  

Let’s talk about the negatives: Auba and Laca were sick and did not feature. Tierney and Martinelli cannot combine well, we are bad with defending against set pieces (nothing new and we never learn), play with style but didn’t material, not used to play with the crowd (especially the ones boosted from a promotion), Arteta used a different gel for his hair (a bit unkept), the memes are not so funny.

And the positives: Balogun made his first start, the stadium was noisy with fans with great atmosphere, you can hear the travelling Gooners singing loud and proud (gave me the chills), Saka was much respected, Saka made a lot of differences to the attack, Saka intermixed very well with Tierney, Arteta didn’t grow old, some of the memes are hilarious.

Then again, losing the first game is not that bad, considering that the defending champions themselves lost too. It’s a marathon of football matches and there is more to play. I hope that we can bounce from this setback. The next few games will be tough for Arsenal.  

Arsenal hosts Chelsea at the Emirates this Sunday, 22 August 2021 at 11.30 pm. Keep the faith! 

Come on Arsenal!!
