Hey Gooners!
 
That’s 2 unexpected wins from the Gunners against Chelsea and Man United! The players deserve our applause for their big performances. Astonishingly, Spurs was held to a draw by Brentford and with last week’s results, Arsenal lies in fourth position, with a 2-point advantage. It is still a massive competition for 3rd and 4th placing with 5 games to play. Chelsea plays Man United tomorrow. Which team do you prefer to win, or is a draw sufficient?
 
This Sunday, 1 May 2022, Arsenal travels to London Stadium to play against West Ham while Spurs hosts Leicester City. Spurs plays at 9 am and it’s another advantage for Arsenal, as the game against the Hammers is scheduled at 11.30 pm. Hopefully, Arsenal capitalise on this.
 
West Ham plays a Europa semi-final on Friday. Hopefully, their desire for the final would have some negative impact on the Premier League match against Arsenal. Yet, another advantage for the Arsenal!
 
It seems that the circumstances are favourable for the Arsenal this Sunday. Can we take it positively and win the London derby? COYG!! Submit your score prediction before the game.
 
We are still waiting for the signed prints from Parlour. He asked for another week or so. Once we have received, the details for the prize winners will be shared.

Hey Gooners!
 
It was another lacklustre performance from the Arsenal against Southampton last Saturday as the team suffered yet another defeat losing by one. Even if Arsenal had been given an additional time of 30 minutes to play, they would not have been able to equalise. The Saints were happy to sit back and park the bus while Arsenal were happier passing the ball around without progressing the play.
 
A massive 76% possession for Arsenal in that match. But there’s no meaning to it if the team does not have any end product. This scenario is so, so familiar, isn’t it? Is the Arsenal going to end the season as they started? Let’s see how the next 7 games pan out for the Arsenal. Until the end of the season, we’ll just have to #trusttheprocess   
 
The Arsenal has lost the last 3 games to Palace, Brighton and Southampton. The next two games are against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Thursday, 21 April 2022 at 2.45 a.m. and Man United on Saturday, 23 April 2022 at 7.30 p.m. You see.. how like dat!! COYG!!
 
For those taking part in the competition, kindly submit your score predictions before the start of these 2 matches.

Hei Gooners!

It was unfortunate for those who missed out on the Arsenal Sg 15th anniversary party last Saturday. The event was wonderful and exciting. Ray Parlour was candid, funny and a pure gentleman. We got to know in the flesh how he was named Romford Pele!!

And it was disastrous for Arsenal, as the club suffered another defeat against Brighton. It was painful to watch as the team just disintegrated, knowing that the players could have done better based on the past matches. There were defeats that we can take positively but these two defeats seem like the team had taken a few steps backward.

The absence of Partey and Tierney were strongly felt last Saturday but that could not be the reason for the loss. Perhaps, Arteta had missed out on his tactics. I question his decision to position Xhaka as leftback. Anyway, the advantage to get into the fourth position is diminishing and getting positive results for the remaining 8 games are becoming very crucial in order to qualify for the European competition next season.

Hopefully, the gaffer can rejuvenate the team to get the desired outcome. The first of the eight matches, is an away game against Southampton, this Saturday on 16 April 2022 at 10 pm kick-off. Come on Arsenal!! Submit your match predictions before the start of the game.     

We have begun our registration for renewals. It is $30 and the membership card for next season is beautiful! The link is: https://members.arsenalsingapore.com/v2/membership

Next season is anticipated to be glorious for the members! We look forward to your continuous support.  

To the quiz and lucky draw winners, we will get in touch with you soon, once we have received the signed Parlour print.
