Greetings Gooners,
 
Arsenal FC news
 
The new EPL season is starting this Saturday, 14 August 2021, with Arsenal kicking off the campaign, playing an away London derby against Brentford FC. The match starts at 3.00 a.m. Yes, it is an early Saturday morning game #dejavu 
 
This is the first time that Brentford is playing at the highest level after gaining promotion last season. The last time Arsenal played against the Bees was in 2018, League Cup competition in which the Gunners beat them 3-1. Before that, it was in 1947. It will be an interesting game to kick-off the league.   
 
Arsenal had recently lost 2 friendlies against their London rivals. The results look unpromising, and in recent times, Arsenal don’t perform well against newly promoted teams. I hope that our fortune will change this time round and see a new Arsenal this coming season.
 
Come on Arsenal!!

Dear Arsenal Sg members (with voting rights),

We will be welcoming the new season soon and organising the annual AGM, slated on 28 August 2021 at 6 pm. The event takes about an hour or so before the Man City game at 7.30 pm and will be done via Zoom meeting.  

We will share the achievements, financial accounts, activities organised last season, etc of our beloved club during the AGM. We hope that in time to come, we can have a physical AGM instead of this virtual platform.  

Your presence is very, very much appreciated as we need to ensure that the requirements of the AGM are met. We also require your attendance confirmation too, to track the numbers before the AGM can proceed. 

Ordinary members with voting rights can place an item on the AGM agenda. To do so, please email our Club’s Secretary, Edwinat edwin@arsenalsingapore.com and also  RSVP your attendance to him by 21 August 2021. 

I seek your kind understanding for the members to renew the membership, for those who have not done so, before confirming your attendance. 

The Zoom link will be shared to you a few days prior to AGM. Looking forward to seeing you soon. Thank you

Shai

Hei Gooners,

Are you excited that Singapore is celebrating its 56th birthday as a nation on Monday!! #patriotic 

For me, I am more excited for the 2021/2022 Premier League!! Arsenal has one another friendly to go, against Spurs, on 8 August 2021 before we kick-off to a brand-new season with Brentford for an early Saturday morning game on 14 August 2021. Hopefully, Arteta has prepared the team well. Is he looking to buy another player after securing three new signings, Sambi 23, Tavares 20 and White 4?

It is never enough for new players to join the club but I also felt that the current depth of the squad is sufficient to mount a top-4 challenge. What we need now is an able deputy for Leno and we are ready for the battle. First time in a long time, there are no European games for Arsenal. We have to get used to it. There’ll be ample time for the team to focus on the domestic front and do well in it. 

I am pleased to report that more than half of our members have renewed for the new season and took up the $20 renewal offer. And we have new sign-ups as well. What about the rest who have not renewed? You don’t like the club any more or maybe the President #sob Just kidding! The renewal offer will end in October 2021.  

The renewal link is: https://members.arsenalsingapore.com/v2/membership

The Exco is working harder to provide a different experience for the members in light of this Covid-19 pandemic. We can only run virtual events for now, till the restrictions are relaxed. For sure, we will have the virtual run and the Fantasy League competition.

At the moment, we have partnered with Weston Corp and acquired huge discounts on jerseys. It is one of the best deals thus far. However, the take up rate is low and this may have an impact in future. We will look out for more partnerships in future to benefit the members.

And the club will be celebrating another milestone, its 15th anniversary, in 2022. The Club’s AGM is slated this month. Exciting season for all of us.
