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.
Hello Fellow Gooners,
I’m back this week as Eric is a little bit tied up. (No, not in that way, you pervs!! or at least not that I know of!!!) - Editor's note: Yes he does!
Welbz, DAT guy is now OUR guy! Never thought I’d write that but hey he scored 2 for England over the weekend, one of which was quite similar to many an Henry goal, and if he scores 20+ for us this season, especially against the Mancs, I’d sing his song.
“He’s our guy, Welbeck, he’s our guy” to the tune of “You’re a c***, Robin …” ringing around the Emirates. Brings a tear to me eyes just thinking about it.
But first, a match this Sat 13 Sep at 7:45pm against the other shitteh Mancs and whilst Ramsey was subbed off late with an ankle injury last night, hopefully he will be fine by then. No other news so far so hopefully everyone else is fit. Let’s do them like we did at the Community Shield a few weeks ago and I’d be a happy Gooner. Signups and renewals will be from 6pm to 7:15pm, renewals at the lower price will end by 29 September so you don’t have much time left, mai tu liao!
On 31 Aug, we held our 8th Annual General meeting and 2 new members have joined the exco, Alvin as our Secretary and Pete as our Social Media Manager. Welcome and we look forward to working with you for the next 2 years!! We’d like to thank the 3 outgoing exco members (Ben, James and Eric Luah) for their services and hope that they will be able to re-join us in the future! Once an Exco, Always an Exco!
Finally, Molly Roffey’s at Dorsett Residences (New Bridge Road) will be open for this Saturday’s match as it is an early kickoff game. Same discounts apply for members so if you prefer a less packed venue, do join us there instead but remember no signups or renewals at that venue.
That’s it from me, COME ON ARSENAL!!!
