Hello Fellow Gooners,
Are you still walking on air after that awesome 2-0 win over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium? And are you practicing Santi Cazorla’s dance moves for your next visit to Zouk or for the 2015 Arsenal Singapore Fabulous Kickass Year End Party? You know, there might very well be prizes to be won for the best version of his dance then!
Since every team near us on the league table won last weekend, except for Citeh, (who are ya?) we are still 4 points from claiming 3rd place from the Saints. Hopefully we get there soon then we can think about challenging for the title! Come On Arsenal!
We have a break from the BPL this coming weekend and instead we’ll be playing away at Brighton & Hove Albion in the FA Cup 4th Round on Sun 25 January at 12am (early Mon morning). Molly Roffey’s Bras Basah will be open for this match but not Dorsett. Do come down and cheer on The Gunners!
That’s it from me for this week and Eric’s back next week.
Ooooh to be a .. Gooner!!
Hello Fellow Gooners,
Eric’s busy/away so I’m baaaccckkkkkkkkkk! Run for your lives MUAHAHAHA!
So Wengalf’s army defeated the orcs last Sunday night but at a cost, Matty Debuggins was sorely injured by Marko the orc which was not detected by Jon Moss The Incompetent. It was a thrilling victory nevertheless, with Sancholas scoring 2 and Laurin Koshield popping one in, which left Croucho Longarms flailing about as he usually does.
We’re now 4 points from overtaking 3rd place Southampton and another victory this weekend against Citeh would be just what we need! The match kicks off at midnight on Sun 18 Jan (early Mon morning) and great news!! Both Molly Roffey’s Bras Basah AND Dorsett will open for this match. So do come down to either location and cheer on The Gunners. Remember, the same discounts for members are available at Dorsett and as it is less crowded there, you should be able to get a seat (they have 3 TV screens and also a pool table as well as a darts machine to keep you entertained before kickoff!) Call them to reserve a table at 6444 5313 (ONLY for Dorsett, no reservations at Bras Basah please).
Last night the exco held our monthly meeting and have confirmed some events for the rest of this season which we will be sharing with you in due course. But the most important bit of info we can share now is for you to clear your calendars for this season’s Be A Gunner, Be A Runner (BAGBAR) event which will be on Sat 11 April. We are trying to hold it at a very special venue and most likely in the afternoon so that those of you working on Sat mornings can also attend. Remember Gooners, this event is for the Arsenal Foundation charity and EVERY cent of your signup fee is donated to them with a top up from Arsenal Singapore Club so please be generous and take part!! We have usually had around 40 taking part in each of the past 2 seasons, but for this season let’s get at least 60 to 80 runners!!
That’s it for this week! COME ON ARSENAL!!!
A good weekend to you my fellow Gooner! It’s been a fairly quiet week after a comfortable 2-0 win in the FA Cup against Hull City Tigers last Sunday. How often could we say “comfortable” and “win” in the same sentence this season? More of the same please!
Speaking of Sunday, it seems like Sunday nights are now Arsenal nights much like how Thursdays have always been Sp*rsdays.
By some quirk of the TV scheduling, we find ourselves playing every Sunday in January, adding to two in December and the first weekend in February.
Well, the TV companies pay the money to the clubs and there’s probably nothing that we fans can do about it. Just spare a thought for the faithful away fans in the UK that trek the length and breadth of the country to support their teams. We have it easy over here in comparison.
This Sunday 11 Jan, we 'welcome' the Orcs to the home of football at the relatively early kickoff of 9.30pm (thank you Sky Sports!).
Both our home grounds in Singapore (Molly Roffey’s Bras Basah and Dorsett) will be open so make sure you join us. Most of us in the Arsenal Singapore Exco will be at Dorsett this weekend so if you are looking for us (to say hello or buy us drinks) do make the trip over there!
The early team news is encouraging and hopefully more of our players will join the likes of Ozil and Ramsey in returning to action like new signings!
Lastly, a big welcome to our new members to the best supporters club in Singapore in support of the greatest team the world has ever seen.
Before you leave for London to cheer on the mighty Gunners, do join us at Molly’s where we bring a bit of the best part of London to Singapore.
