Gooners In Geylang
Geylang is perhaps the most down to earth place in Singapore. It's where people cross the road before the light turns red, cyclists brush pedestrians aside on the footpath and the hookers brazenly display their ways along the lorongs and in the coffee shops.
Into this world have come two former Arsenal trainees, Oliver Nicholas and Rhema Obed who have hit the east after failing to make the grade in England.
Just because they're moving to Singapore doesn't mean they are falling off the football map. Just take a look at Norwich City's free scoring striker Grant Holt who had a short spell in the SLeague before rising through the divisions back home.
