It’s another week and we have yet another London derby upon us. It’s a massive one this Sunday when we take on the current league leaders and the pundits’ favourite for the title. No doubt about it, it will be a tough encounter but these are exactly the type of games in which we need to turn up and be counted if we are to be taken seriously as title contenders this season.
There are plenty of subplots in the game what with the opponents managed by serial whiner Jose Mourinho and a certain Cesc Fabregas pulling the strings in their midfield.
How do I feel about seeing Cesc in that awful blue kit and being chummy with the racist John Terry? Let’s just say it’s a cross between being sick in the guts and having a massive throbbing headache. The thing about Cesc is that it just teaches us that we cannot expect footballers to think or feel the same way that we fans do. He has moved on and so have we. And let’s make sure we make his first appearance against us a totally memorable one for all the right reasons for us. (An own goal and sending off would do very nicely, Cesc.)
I’m sure you also enjoyed Danny Welbeck’s hattrick heroics for us in midweek against the Turkish flamethrowers. It’s still early days yet in his Arsenal career but the signs are promising of what an extended run in the team in his favoured position can do to his form and confidence. Keep it up Danny boy!
Kick off this Sunday is at 9pm and the match will be screened ‘live’ at both Molly Roffey’s outlets in Bras Basah and Dorsett Residences.
See you on Sunday and COYG!
Hello and I hope this newsletter finds you well ahead of the race weekend. It was a largely forgettable start to our Champions League campaign earlier in the week so the less said about that the better. To put it simply, that was just not good enough if we are to be taken seriously as a side that can genuinely challenge for major honours this season. We are the Arsenal and we are better than that.
The only way is up and the best thing about football is that we have another game coming right up to hopefully get that last one out of the system.
We face a tough trip to Villa Park to face an in-form side that have started the season brilliantly so let’s hope we get some fresh legs into the side and make the step up to properly kick-start our season again. Speaking of tough trips, what with Gooner Lewis Hamilton and his pals zipping around town in their little fast cars, do consider taking the train when you are heading down to the home of Arsenal Singapore to catch our match which kicks off at 10pm.
Molly Roffey’s at Dorsett Residences will also be open for this match so you might want to head over to our new home ground instead if you prefer to avoid the jam and human traffic around Bras Basah.
Renewals and sign-ups will take place from 8.30pm to 9.30pm at Bras Basah. If you are receiving this email and yet to renew your membership, you only have this weekend and the next to do so before we close for renewals for the season. So wait no further and make sure you renew before it’s too late!
Enjoy the F1 if that’s your kind of thing. If not, we’ll see you at Molly’s for the Arsenal.
