Hello Fellow Singapore Gooners,
Well that was a disappointing result last night against Swansea City. I guess it was inevitable that our 11 game unbeaten run in all competitions, since 1 March, would come to an end sometime and of course Fabianski would have to have a great game against us. We just have to win the next 4 games against Man U, Sunderland, West Brom and of course Aston Villa!!
Due to the scousers draw against chelski, Arsenal are now guaranteed to be in the CL next season, for the 16th consecutive year. If you think that’s no big deal, just ask the scousers and the scum, they spend more than we do and still cannot regularly get into the CL, only the 3 clubs significantly richer than us have been able to do so and even then, manure failed last season.
Also happy to report that we celebrated St Totteringham’s Day again this season, for the 20th year in a row. #NorthLondonIsRed #ItsHappenedAgain #MindTheGap #ForeverInOurShadow
The Barclays Asia Trophy details have now been officially announced and many of you have already bought your tickets to that event in our exclusive members only sales period. If you have not yet done so, the FINAL day for buying tickets through us and sitting with us in the exclusive Arsenal Singapore Cat 3 section is this Sunday 17 May from 730pm to 1030pm, before our 11pm kickoff against Man U at Molly Roffey’s Bras Basah (MRBB). Again, each member will be allowed to buy 2 tickets. We will however be allowing new membership signups at the same time so get your friends and family members to sign up as well if you need more tickets.
It will be super packed at MRBB so do come down very early if you want a seat and Molly Roffey’s Dorsett will also be screening ManU v Arsenal at 11pm. Please note for either location if you are coming down with your friend who supports ManU, please tell them that these are NOT neutral venues, they cannot wear ManU kits and they should behave accordingly. Of course they can clap and cheer but no taunting and booing of Arsenal. Molly Roffey’s management reserves the right to ask them to leave.
As a buildup to the BAT event. Ian Wright is in Singapore and will be taking part in a Twitter Takeover tomorrow 13 May from 330pm to 5pm hosted by The New Paper. To take part,
1. Tweet your questions that you've always wanted to ask Ian to @TheNewPaper,
2. Include the hashtag #TNPBAT2015,
3. Follow @TheNewPaper and look out for his responses!
That’s it for this week,
Come On Arsenal!!
Hello Fellow Gooners,
Eric’s going to be busy the next month due to work so I’ll be taking over.
Looks like the Arsenal supporters at the Emirates hit a raw nerve when we sang “Boring, boring Chelsea!” From their detestable manager to their racist captain, they wouldn’t stop commenting on it. Must be deep down they know they are boring and that after spending so much $$$$$ on their team, their owner is probably just as unhappy with their brand of soul sucking, sleep inducing, bus parking football. What I thought was frankly ludicrous was their reaction at the final whistle, they were celebrating like they won the league. What utter muppets!
Read this on the internet, which those blue scum should take note:
OPEN LETTER TO CHELSEA FANS
Dear Chelsea fans,
Congrats on winning your 5th league title (most likely) but FOR YOUR INFORMATION
Aston villa won their 5th league trophy in 1900 (115 yrs ago)
Sunderland did it in 1913 (102 yrs ago)
Arsenal did it in 1938 (77 yrs ago)
Everton did it in 1939 (76 yrs ago)
Liverpool did it in 1947 (68 yrs ago)
Man U did it in 1957 (58 yrs ago)
Winning 5 league trophies isn’t any achievement that hasn’t been seen before so please stop worrying our ears with the noise of being league champs.
Boring and no class to top it off.
Our next game is away to Hull City and that kicks off at 3am on Tues 5 May. Due to the timing, thanks to Sky Sports, Molly Roffey’s will not be open for this. The same for the following week when we play Swansea at 3am on Tues 12 May.
Hey Goonerettes, we NEED your help!! The next round of our community service event is slated on Sun 10 May 2015 from 3-5 pm at the Children's Aid Society. This time, the activities will involve the girls from the home and we are looking for female members to volunteer in addition to our male members who help out with the boys. Those interested, please sms or whatsapp Shai directly at 98440234.
That’s it for this week!
Come On Arsenal!!
So here we are heading into the final month of the season. How time flies when you’re enjoying yourself!
And what’s there not to enjoy from an Arsenal point of view? We’re through to our second straight FA Cup Final and are currently on our best run of league form since the days of the Invincibles. St. Totteringham’s day is ever closer and there shouldn’t be any mad last day dash for that 4th spot! Happy days indeed!
Speaking of the FA Cup Final, the FA has announced the kickoff timing and it’s at 12.30am in the early hours of Sunday 31 May for us so make sure that's in your calendar.
In terms of the league and to be realistic, the title is probably out of reach. But that does not mean we can’t beat Chelsea this Sunday, delay them lifting the trophy and just maybe, put that little seed of doubt in their heads.
But more importantly, it will go a long way to show the big strides we have taken as a team this season and put down a marker for next season that we, the Arsenal, will be up there challenging for the biggest prizes.
I don’t know about you but everything about that team in blue is so dislikeable, from their racist captain and fans to their management duo of Mourinho and Faria. If you thought Jose was bad, you’ve not seen Faria yet. Obnoxious, antagonistic and a lack of class are perfect words from the English language that sum up the man Rui Faria is. (Just google for him and the truth is out there.)
The long and shot is that let’s make sure we beat that evil lot on Sunday! Kickoff is at 11pm and both Molly Roffey’s at Bras Basah and Dorsett will be screening the match so make sure you join us for what promises to be a fiery encounter. Membership renewals and signups will be at the usual spot at Bras Basah from 9pm to 10.30pm.
Our next two league fixtures are on Monday nights / Tuesday mornings (no thanks to Sky TV) which unfortunately means we won’t be open for them. So all the more reason to be at Molly’s this Sunday!
On this note, I would like to thank all of you Gooners for reading my newsletters week-in-week-out. For those who know what I do in real life, I’ll be really busy come May with the SEA Games coming to Singapore so Jin Yan will be taking over to write to you lovely people all the way from London with his first-hand Arsenal perspective!
All you need is love and COYG!
