Hello Singapore Gooners,

The longest and strangest league season in EPL history has ended. We finished 8th in the league…. Probably our worst performance since the 1994/95 season when we finished 12th (yes, it’s true so Google it… LOL). Have no fear, Arteta is here and the summer signings will come for sure. Next season will kick-off on 12th Sep 2020. Yes, only 6 weeks more to go.

Meanwhile, The Arsenal marches on to Wembley this weekend. Just a small matter of beating Chelski in the FA CUP FINAL. We are the 13-time winners of this historic competition and I’m convinced Arteta will kick everyone into shape.

Here are your updates for this week.

1. Arsenal Singapore membership renewal
We are planning to resume renewals and new sign-ups in September. We are dusting the spider webs to ensure everything will proceed smoothly. Remember, members can only renew/sign-up online. And we have an attractive and Goonerific gift … here’s a hint *”it’s in yellow”*.

2. Arsenal New Home Jersey promo
You would have received my email on this yesterday so just another reminder that from 30th July onwards, you can purchase the new jersey from Crown Sports (based at Peninsula Shopping Complex) at an exclusive member’s rate. This promo price is for 1 month only. So get your hands on the new kit soon.

And finally, The FA Cup Final. It’s a repeat of the 2017 final. Let’s hope the boys rise up to the challenge, win the Cup and get us back into Europe (and kick Sp*rs OUT of Europe!). That’s a double bonus!!!

Unfortunately, pubs and restaurants are not permitted to telecast any football games so means you have to watch it at home. Sad, but true! Remember, don’t gather in a group of more than 5 pax.

FA CUP FINAL, The Arsenal v Chelski, Sunday 2nd August, 12.30am

Hello Singapore Gooners,

I’m not sure if you have been laughing or crying at our recent results… From the highs of beating Pool and Citeh to the low of losing to Aston Villa. It only shows how unpredictable the life of a Gooner can be! On our day, surely Arteta’s red & white army can beat almost any team in the world. Arteta has told the board to invest this summer and perhaps we may need to sell a few players to raise the capital. Who do you think will leave?

Here are your updates for this week.

1. Donation to Children’s Aid Society (CAS)

Two days ago, I paid a visit to the folks at CAS. Our club presented a cheque of $1,600 along with 62 drawstring bags for the kids. In addition, 20 Arsenal Singapore mugs were given to the hardworking staff of CAS. They are very appreciative of our kindness and thanked our members as well. You can read more of this here: https://www.facebook.com/childrensaidsocietysg/posts/4348876528485895

If you wish to donate any amount, click on the link here: https://www.giving.sg/children-s-aid-society/solidarity
The Singapore government will match dollar-for-dollar for all donations until 31st March 2021 so this means your impact of giving has now DOUBLED!

2. Zoom gathering for members

The EPL season will come to an end this Sunday. We play at home to Watford at 11pm. To create a unique experience, Arsenal Singapore will host a private Zoom event gathering for our members. In case you miss the atmosphere of watching at the pub, now watch the game in the comfort of your own home and also watching with your fellow Singapore Gooners. Entry is FREE and we can only allow 100 members to log in.
(FYI, we will not telecast the game on Zoom due to TV rights).

Your Zoom host is Lance Lim! You can submit your half-time score, full-time score, and total goals in the “CHAT” box before the game starts.

Last chance to win some exclusive Adidas merchandise!

The first 3 correct entries for each category will win an EXCLUSIVE prize from us. Please indicate your name and membership number together with your predictions on matchday.

This event is purely for our members only. You can log in from 10.30 pm onwards.

Hello Singapore Gooners,

What a week it has been for us! We screwed it up against our neighbours last weekend and yesterday, our worst-performing Arsenal team in 25 years beat the best-performing Pool team in 30 years!! Is this the “new normal” we were expecting…. Definitely not!

Barring VAR and refereeing inconsistencies in both games, I don’t know what to make of our team these days. It’s obvious Arteta has turned some things around but the depth of the squad speaks volumes but the board still seem to turn a deaf ear on us fans. Where do we go from here?

Our salvation seems to be the road to Wembley this weekend. If we win, we get into the final and 90 mins away from lifting our 14th FA Cup. And our entry into Europe. I don’t wish to think of any other option! We are 2 games from completing the league and possibly achieving max 59 pts. Simply Not Good Enough for The Arsenal!!!

In mid-week we will play Aston Villa (3.15am Wed 22 Jul) but for now, let’s focus and get behind the team for our 30th FA Cup semi-final appearance on Sun 19th Jul, 2.45am.
