Good afternoon Gooners,

Happy New Year to All.

Good news and bad news to usher in 2017.
The bad news is the team was absolutely pathetic for the first 69 mins against Bournemouth this morning. Pissed poor performance!

The good news is The Scorpion King (Oli-G) decided to become Superman from the 70th minute and saved us yet again! Another good news is we are unbeaten in 2017 thus far. Hey it’s true, isn’t it? LOL.

I was in London to catch the past 2 games and it was good to end 2016 and kick-off 2017 with hard-earned victories over WBA and Crystal Palace respectively. The atmosphere at Emirates was fantastic and the crowd got behind the team when the going got tough.

It’s always nice to meet Singapore Gooners in London (some were on their honeymoon) and wanna say hello to Edward & family, Mark & partner, Peng Juay & partner, Yuxin, Steve and Suzanne. Top Gooners there!! Hope to see more Singapore Gooners making the trip to catch The Arsenal in action. There’s nothing quite like that feeling of watching a game at The Emirates!

Here is your Arsenal Singapore updates for this week.

2. FIVE Square

Our FA Cup 2017 run starts this Saturday (Sunday morning). Take note of the following:

Finally this Sunday, our road to Wembley begins! Seeking our 13th FA Cup glory, we play away to Preston North End. From last night’s performance, I reckon Lucas, Ox and Gabriel deserve to start that game. Welbeck might play some part in it. Some players like Walcott and Coquelin may be out due to injury. But the romance of the FA Cup always gets fans excited.

Come down to FIVE and let’s get behind your Arsenal team!! Let’s create an electrifying atmosphere this Sunday and sing your favourite Arsenal songs.

FA CUP: Preston North End v The Arsenal, 1.30AM kick-off, Sunday 8th Jan.

Good morning Gooners,

The Arsenal rounded off 2016 with a very tight 1-0 victory over WBA who basically parked the bus (and their mini-van) in front of their goal. We huffed and puffed and eventually Oli-G came to the rescue, kindly assisted by Ozil.

We need to grind out such results especially in January when all our rivals have tougher fixtures than us. We must start strongly in 2017 and keep our faith till May!

Here is your Arsenal Singapore updates for this week.

1. Referral Needed for 10th Anniversary

The Exco team needs your help. Can you recommend us a company that can do decoration of the ballroom for us? We are looking for someone who can do it a a very reasonable rate (read: BIG discount lah). If that person is a Gooner it’s a Bonus! We are on a tight budget so appreciate your referrals.

Please email Shai at shai@arsenalsingapore.com if you know someone. Thanks Gooners!

Hello Singapore Gooners,

Well the bubble finally burst this morning! We were undefeated since August and suffered our first away loss in the league since February. I only wished we rose up to the challenge especially since we could have been top of the table had we won today AND we were 1-0 up! We sorely missed Mustafi, didn’t we?

Fact: We lost all 3 matches when he didn’t play (including Southampton in EFL Cup).

Moving on, here’s your Arsenal Singapore update for this week.

1. 10th Anniversary Celebration

As of last Saturday, almost 100 members have signed up for our big event. Arsenal SG is turning 10 in 2017 and we will commemorate this milestone event on Saturday 25th March 2017 at Hotel Jen Tanglin.

Let’s all come together for a night of sumptuous food, glorious games and fabulous prizes. The Top prize is a return ticket to London, sponsored by Emirates.

2. “Welcome to Five” Party

For those members who attended ZoukOut last Saturday, you missed our Welcome Party where our members had a great time enjoying the delectable 8-course buffet from FIVE with free beer sponsored by Carlsberg. It seems like our members really liked the special menu created for us.

Members also took part in games, activities and quizzes and won fabulous prizes such as dining vouchers, Arsenal toiletries bags, scarves, caps and t-shirts.

Special thanks to Tuck Lee Ice for sponsoring the amazing Arsenal Singapore ice sculpture. Look at the picture attached.

Will Lucas play some part too? We need to be firing on all cylinders as the hectic Christmas schedule lies ahead.

They’ll be irritating, nasty, clumsy and all over us. If our lads play at full throttle, we’re gonna give them hell. I’d love to see the same First XI that hammered The Hammers to start again.

Good afternoon Gooners,

December is finally here! I would have loved to say we finished November unscathed but alas this morning we ended November with a defeat.

I think the less I discuss about the match, the better. Yes, it was that bad.

And no, I’m not being very harsh. We always do things the hard way and are probably our own worst enemy.

Let’s hope for a more dynamic December for The Arsenal!

Here are your updates for this week.

This weekend, it’s another all-London showdown. We’re off to the new home of The Hammers and they’ve had their fair share of issues to sort out and dangerously close to relegation.

We need some fresh legs and with the mid-week break for our key players, we must be all up for it now. December is crucial to stay with the pack above us and gain maximum points and hope for others to falter.

Good afternoon Singapore Gooners,

To our newly-signed up members, hello and welcome to probably the best Supporters’ Club in Singapore. This is your weekly newsletter from Arsenal Singapore. We will keep you informed of the latest exclusive Singapore promotions, news, updates and freebies (whilst stocks last!).

How many of you woke up to catch the PSG clash? I found it very alarming that we played in a disjointed manner. We all know the “Movember myth” and this morning’s performance almost led to a possible disaster. And with our Manure draw, we’re riding our wave of luck this month. Personally, I can’t wait for the month to be over! LOL.

Here are your updates for this week.

1. FIVE Square

It was brilliant to see over 350 Gooners gather last Saturday. Feedback from members so far is that service has improved and food & drinks were served faster compared to the Sp*ds game.

We will continue to fine-tune along the way. FIVE management and Exco team thank you for your understanding.

  • For this Sunday’s match against Bournemouth, FIVE will open its doors at 6pm.
  • Only the Tapas food stall will be open. Last order is half-time, 11pm.
  • Food ordering will be self-service at the stalls. You can make payment at the stall itself, enter your mobile number in the system upon ordering and once your food is ready, you will receive a SMS to collect your food.
  • Also if members wish to book a table, FIVE will accept reservations only via email: square@fivebar.sg

3. Membership Renewals and Sign-ups

This Sunday is definitely your last opportunity to renew your membership. Also get your Gooner mates/family/partner-to-be to sign-up as members. No further extensions after 27th November.

You may also collect your membership cards and the all-new red & white polo t-shirt. New stock for all sizes are available: XS, S, M, L, XL, 2XL, and 3XL.

Our 10th Anniversary Party is coming up in March 2017. This is strictly for members only.
Announcement for the Anniversary Party will be made tomorrow!

It’s another home match this Sunday. We really have to chalk up more points at home if we’re going to make a serious challenge for the title. It’s pretty tight up there if you look at the EPL table.

There are some tired legs on the pitch as you have seen in the past few games. So let’s hope the squad turns up on the day to shine and make it count. Don’t worry Jack Wilshere won’t be playing against us so he may just enjoy his “return Home”.

Let’s get behind the team and bring the house down!

The Arsenal v Bournemouth, 10.15PM kick-off, Sunday 27th Nov.
The Exco team will be on duty from 8.30pm to 9.30pm.

Good evening Gooners,

Are you enjoying the November Rain? When it rains, it definitely pours. The international break is finally over. Even better news is that the next international break is only in March 2017!

We kicked off November with a drab draw with THAT team down the lane. That was 2 points dropped for sure. More eventful that night was the fact that we had more than 400 Gooners packed at FIVE Square, the new Home of Arsenal Singapore.

Wasn’t it amazing when the whole place was filled up and we were one BIG Gooner family? How did it feel when we all sang at the top of our lungs all night long… Which was YOUR fav Sp*rs song? LOL.

Due to the overwhelming crowd on that night which neither the Exco team nor the management of FIVE could have predicted, we received feedback that night and the following day on how service and operational issues can be improved. We thank you for this and have already discussed with FIVE management on improvements. There will be ongoing adjustments for tweaking as this partnership with FIVE grows.

  • For this weekend’s match against Manure, FIVE will double the staff on duty so that everyone will get their drinks as fast as possible.
  • For food options, all 5 stalls will be fully operational every Saturday night till 10pm.
  • Food ordering will be self-service at the stalls. You can make payment at the staff itself, enter your mobile number in the system upon ordering and once your food is ready, you will receive a SMS to collect your food. Yes, it’s pretty hi-tech if you haven’t already noticed.
  • You have 5 stalls offering Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese and local pub grub.
  • Also if members wish to book a table, FIVE will accept reservations only via email: square@fivebar.sg

Here are more updates for this week.

1. ArsenalSG Football Team

Despite the opening day defeat to Liverpool FC Singapore (emulating the London lads), our footy team is eager to start our unbeaten run starting this Saturday. Head on down to support the Singapore team!

Date: Saturday 19th Nov

They have won a $100 and $50 dining voucher respectively. The lucky draw was conducted at half-time during Sp*rs match.

The Exco team will be on duty from 7pm to 8pm.

Finally this Saturday, we play a team beneath us (in the table, I mean). Will we have the upper hand? Will our fine form edge out the Devils in Manchester? Will Alexis defy Wenger and insist on playing? Will Oli-G be our saviour? Will it be a cracker of a game? Will Maureen-ho shake hands with Wenger and blame you-know-who for still living in a hotel in Manchester and can’t get the monkey off his back?

How we do it, we don’t know! How we do it, we don’t care! All we care is 3 POINTS!

Let’s get behind the team and bring the house down!

Good mooooooooooooorning Gooners,

Wakey Wakey!!! What a smash-and-grab victory this morning. We came back from 2-0 down in the first 16 minutes and rallied to 2-2 by half-time. Magical Mesut struck again to kill off Ludogorets for a fantastic 3-2 win on a cold Tuesday night in Sofia!

We also ended Oktoberfest with a Bang: 4-1! Alexis scored a brace and ditto, Oli G!! Has the G-man found his mojo back even though he has not shaved his beard for years now and throwing away his good looks?

Plenty of updates for you this week so here goes.

1. Arsenal SG Football Team

Our very own members are back for more footy action with an all-new look! The season begins this weekend for them. Head on down to support the lads and let’s wish them best of luck and hope they do us proud. A trophy would be nice, fellas. No pressure!

Good afternoon Gooners,

LUNCHTIME EDITION!

The Arsenal Express keeps going on. This morning’s 2-0 victory in EFL Cup ensures our unbeaten run for 23 games now with 14 clean sheets. Very positive stats indeed!

Pity we couldn’t get past Boro and go clear at the top of the table. Well, I guess we would rather be top of the table in May, rather than October. I’m sure you’re with me on this!

Here are your Arsenal Singapore updates for this week.

1. $1,000 Molly Dining Vouchers to be given away on 29th Oct

This Saturday will be the last match for Arsenal Singapore members to gather at Molly Roffey’s Bras Basah.

To reward Arsenal Singapore members for your strong support for past 3 years at Molly Roffey’s, Arsenal Singapore is giving away $1,000 worth of Molly dining vouchers!! We kid you not.

The FIRST 50 members to arrive at Molly on Saturday 29th Oct for the Sunderland game from 6pm onwards will each receive a $20 Molly dining voucher. Members must produce your current membership card at entrance of Molly and collect your $20 vouchers. Only active members will be eligible. (New sign-ups on that day itself do not qualify for this).

2. Arsenal SG moving to FIVE Square

I announced last week that from 6th Nov onwards, FIVE Square will be the new home for Singapore Gooners. The feedback and vibes from members and even non-members has been positive so far going by the FB post earlier this week.

We hope to see you there for Sp*rs game on that day. I’m confident we can fit everyone inside with a capacity of 400 pax and variety of food and drink options. Come early to get the best seats in the house!

Join us on match nights at the all-new Arsenal Singapore Home:

FIVE SQUARE BAR
1 Pickering Street, #01-03 Great Eastern Centre
Singapore 048659.

3. ArsenalSG10 Lucky Draw

Don’t miss out on this!!  This Saturday is also your last opportunity to submit dining receipts from Molly. Just hand it over to any Exco member. We will conduct the draw during the Sp*rs match on 6th Nov.

2 lucky members will stand to win either a $100 or $50 Molly Roffey’s dining voucher.

On the back of each receipt, write down your personal details in this format: Name, Membership number, Mobile number, Arsenal’s opponent.

(For example: John Tan, 702-07-xxx-x, 91234567, Arsenal v Sunderland).

Our final match in October sees us playing away at Sunderland. This is going to be tricky coz David (how is he not sacked yet?) Moyes’ team will definitely be parking the bus and it may just frustrate us as how Boro did. So it is up to the team to unlock such defences and Le Boss might just need to tweak the line-up.

Rambo, Giroud and Lucas may play at some point this Saturday. Will this do the trick?

We will accept new sign-ups this Saturday. You may also collect your membership cards and the all-new red & white polo t-shirt. New stock for all sizes are available: XS, S, M, L, XL, 2XL, and 3XL. Look out for the Exco team from 6pm to 7pm.

Sunderland v The Arsenal, 7.30PM kick-off, Saturday 29th Oct.

The Exco team wishes all Indians a Happy Deepavali.

We are The Arsenal.

Victory Through Harmony,
