This is a belated discovery, considering that:
- I decided to support Arsenal before they went on their unbeaten streak (ie, a few years ago)
- I have already made many friends online, through other interests such as web standards and blogging
- It did occur to me on several occasions that there might be an Arsenal fan club in Singapore, somewhere. But I never got round to looking for it until someone posted a comment on Blinkymummy‘s blog.
Now I’m looking forward to meeting fellow Gooners!
It has been challenging finding other people with the same interests. An ex-colleague was the first Arsenal fan I ever knew. Then I discovered that an old friend’s fiance was an Arsenal fan. That was really it! As far as I know, there are no Arsenal fans in my current workplace. However, if you went anywhere in Singapore and threw a stone at a group of people, you’d most probably hit a Man U fan.
And throwing the stone would be worth it. Heh heh heh…
Since Jose Mourinho arrived as Chelsea manager, more people I know have emerged as Blues fans. However all have claimed to be Blues fans *before* Chelsea won their first Premiership title. However I don’t doubt Liverpool fans’ faith – the true fans held on for years and were finally rewarded with the Champions League win. Yeah, I don’t really have much against Liverpool, just that I find Arsenal more exciting to watch.
There must be something special, to make Thierry Henry sign on for 4 more years…
Hey there Vanessa,
Was just googling for the local Arsenal fan club when i came across your blog.
Nice to know a fellow Gooner out here 🙂
Like you, i’ve been supporting the Gunners before the much-talked-about Unbeaten Streak. Those were the days, with Marc Overmars and Dennis Bergkamp at his peak.
Keep up the support for our team, even though they may be playing a bit erratic of late 😉
Take care, and let’s kick some Chelski ass this sunday!!
