What a week it has been to be a Gooner, especially if you are in Singapore!
Knocking Manchester United out of the FA Cup at Old Trafford with our boy Welbz scoring and celebrating the winner will stick with all of us for a very long time. That Tuesday morning, we had almost 70 of us cheering and singing at Molly Roffey’s (which included a few very silent and I must say respectful Mancs).
On Wednesday, it was finally officially announced that the Arsenal will be coming to our very shores in July to take part in the Barclays Asia Trophy alongside football teams Everton and Singapore Selection as well as Stoke City.
It’s been 24 long years since the greatest team the world has ever seen have been to Singapore so mark your diaries and make sure you are in town for the week of 13 July!
Ticketing details will only be released from May but as a club, Arsenal Singapore are already in touch with the promoters to make arrangements to bulk purchase tickets and have all of us Gooners allocated one section in the stadium. So hang on for now and wait for us to share with you more news when we get them.
I know everyone is excited but there is very little we can answer when we get bombarded with questions about how to buy tickets when we clearly indicated on our posts that we will only have those details much later.
Back to the present, we still have plenty to look forward to before the likes of the BFG, HFB and Le Coq touch down at Changi.
BAGBAR registrations are down to the last two weekends so if you have yet to sign up, what are you waiting for? Come down to Molly’s at Bras Basah this Saturday 14 March from after 9pm and sign da thing!
We play West Ham at 11pm and you have the option of both Bras Basah and Dorsett to go to catch the match. A big shout out to the 15 Singapore Gooners who have made the trip to the Emirates for this match! Sing up loud and proud and make sure you come back with them 3 points!
Come Wednesday morning (18 March), we play our 2nd leg against Monaco in the Champions League. We are up against it but it is very much still mission possible.
The great news is that Molly Roffey’s (Bras Basah) will stay open for the 3.45am kickoff so do come on down to hopefully witness one of our greatest comebacks in our history. You just never know!
Ok, I think I’ve rambled on for quite a bit but it’s really been a very special week for a Singapore Gooner!
