Ian Wright, Wright, Wright? More like Wrong, Wrong, Wrong

Ian Wright used to be an Arsenal hero of mine. And you know what? I hate the fact that now I say used to be.

What is wrong with the fella? Today he expressed an opinion that fourth place is not good enough for Arsenal. Well, fair enough. But why say it now? Couldn't he have waited until the end of the season to say so?

Why has he chosen to come out with this article at the beginning of the most important week of Arsenal's campaign? What is his problem?

The funny thing about the situation is at the beginning of the season he said Arsenal would struggle to make it into the top four. Now he says it's not good enough.

Growing up as a kid I worshipped the bloke. He was my hero. Nowadays I can't help but think he uses the Arsenal to sell his column.

Why didn't Ian Wright use his column to say how well Arsenal were doing recently and that we have a real chance of winning the FA Cup or Champions League?

I know there have been times Arsenal have been poor this season. I know we haven't won for a trophy for a long time. But lets wait until the end of the season and then maybe discuss the campaign. Who knows, we might have come third and won both trophies by then!

I'm sorry Wrighty. I think you are bitter towards Arsenal, maybe more towards Arsene Wenger. Since you have left the club your opinions and columns have proved that.

And that, from an Arsenal legend, makes me sad.

Keep it Goonerish.............

the guy is a fool. i am only 18 so i didn't see much of him. but you can't help but feel he has been bitter ever since TiTi left his records stranded. Strange how he says we are so excited about 4th and thats not good enough but its the standard we are at now. yet the muppet doesn't take circumstances into account. Ofcourse 4th is good enough this year. If we were gutted with 3rd last year why are we happy with 4th.

Ian Wright scored a lot of goals for Arsenal and this was a GOOD thing. But I can remember seeing him leaning out of the dressing room window at Highbury acting like a complete idiot. He is no mastermind but now picks up a few quid acting like a tosser on Talk Shite. Do yourself a favour and don't listen to him because the fact is, despite his goals, Ian Wright was, is and always will be, a total knob. Possibly some will find it hard to accept this fact, but show me a single thing he has done recently which contradicts this opinion. He is an irrelevance and the game has passed him by, leaving him bitter and twisted. I repeat: He is a Knob!

couldn't agree more, Wrighty was/is a hero, but come on Ian, think before you say these things and remember who you were a hero to !

he is a fake reporter with nothing to write about so he writes about arsenal and not his own sons failures , he does not write about his greed in sending shaun to chelsea and ruining his career, just like alan smith they have to be seen to be unpartial so they attack us, ian wright sold out years ago, fuck him

Well, every other loser dumped by the mighty arsenal is at it: diarhea, bentley, whats that sad failure that just got dumped by liverpool ? (oh yes, pennant) .. etc etc .. The thing is I actually had wright penned down as a winner and a hero. Everytime I read his muppet of a column, he clearly shows how much of an unintelligent loser he really is. Blame yourself for reading his tripe .. no one else. After reading a couple a while ago, I have never read any more.

I know that like me many Gooners gave up on Talk Stupid Radio ages ago. But I have to say I thought I was in a minority in being completely fed up with listening to Ian Wrights anti Arsenal ramblings. Glad I found this site. He will never be remembered with the true greats like Charlie George, Bergkamp and Adams

Wrighty is annoying its true
I think a few of the old english lads are a bit unhappy with the wenger way of doing things.

I got to say, I still like Wright. He isn't That bad really regarding arsenal.
The one who really pisses me off is dixon. That assclown simply delights in any problems arsenal may have, and quickly switched sides to the man utd crowd at motd

Wrighty is and always will be a legend. I have read his article and it is discraceful. The man seems more intent on putting Wenger down than anything. Even when he gives credit for Walcott being protected from hype he says gives the credit to Walcott and ARSENAL, not Wenger. I makes sarcastic comments as well.

Why doesn't he throw a few facts of into his article? For instance, why does Wright not mention that out of the top four clubs, Wenger has the least resources, as well as some clubs lower than us?

I still like Wrighty and think he's a good laugh but he needs to show some loyalty if not to the club, then to the fans that have shown so much loyalty to him through the years!!

Bloomsbury Gooner said...

Spot on about Wrighty, lads. Any true Gooner knows the score about him for a long time. also, anyone who's a mate of Adrian Durham's got to be a wrongen. The only one out there in the media who's with us is Charlie.

WeGunnerBeKings said...

dont forget as well he's writing for a paper that used a footballing tragedy to spread disgusting lies in order to sell papers, shame on anyone involved in football to write for that piece of shit paper!!!

He admitted on his show today that he's a Milwall fan too.

Just makes him more of a cunt really.

I seem to remember a season (about 1994) when we were still in the relegation zone at Easter. Ian Wright was a part of that team. It is only since Wenger arrived that we have consistently finished in the top four.

Wright talks about our lack of ambition. Our ambition is to build a championship winning side from scratch, not just buy a trophy through some sugar-daddy's money. That is a much bigger and more rewarding objective and shows a lot more ambition in my book.

Joppa Road said...

Wright will always be an Arsenal legend. Not going down this road again. ANY so called Arsenal fan who runs the man down needs their head testing and I would question just how much you really know about Arsenal.

Lame post. Even more lame comments.

marcmm03 said...

Wright should remember where Arsenal was when he was playing. Arsenal hardly get into Europe not to mention challenge for the title consistenly. He say forth place not good enough for Arsenal but the fact is during his playing days with Arsenal, they will jump and celebrate with champagne if they finish forth. As for his goal tally, he got something about 10 goals a season against lower division team and play in the league cup.

I cannot regards him a legend anymore. His record broken by TH4 and DB10 have won more silverwares with Arsenal and losing finalist. So Joppa, no matter how you think wright still not worth a legend to be remembered for ages.

Vertino Aleci said...

No one should forget what Wright has done in his time at Arsenal. The point remains, his comments cannot be respected at any level. I have always found him annoying on BBC. You don't see Keown, Dixon etc etc talking Arsenal down now. And they at least kept working hard and actually finished their careers at Arsenal. Legend as a player but better for him to shut up now.

I knew Ian Wright didn't respect Arsenal when he suggested his useless son should Chelsea instead of Arsenal (and we know what a great piece of advice that was). I know Wenger wouldn't have wanted him (and his tiny self). He lives off of being an Arsenal legend but him and Paul Merson can't help but dig into Wenger and his young team. FUCK OFF

Wrighty mate!

Are you ever going to reply to my email fella?!

Great post as usual.

Wrighty is and always will be an Arsenal legend. But like many Gooners he has a short memory. Wrighty joined just after the start of the 1991-1992 season. He lifted the league championship trophy in 1998, almost seven years after joining the club. I don’t recall him saying that it wasn’t good enough for Arsenal then.
Like many fans and ex-players he judges Arsenal on the standards set by Wenger, not the standards of the club over the last 40 or 50 years.

he's no legend.
the true legend for arsenal and always be is thierry henry.

Ian Wright is a cunt
He has a fat wife
He has a midget son
And rights shit about us in the sun

nis said...

Ian wright is a cunt. I'm a younger fan so i haven't seen much of him but I have heard enough from him. Everything he says about the club is negative.
I understand Ian Wright was shown the door by wenger, but bobby was subbed off in his last game for the club which was the champions league final and he still finds more positive things to say about the club than Wright. Just goes to show Wright is sad, bitter ex-player who is now taking every opportunity to piss on Arsene Wenger and hence Arsenal.

Joppa Road said...

so called Arsenal fans who have never seen him play calling him a cunt. Says more about them than it does Ian Wright. I think Ian Wright has earned the right to express whatever feelings he sees fit after all he has done for our club.

These new 'glory' fans really are clueless not to mention complete and utter wankers.

nis said...

JR,

I dont care what Ian Wright has done for arsenal and what he might still do in the future but if you piss on the club like he does, you're a cunt. I understand that there is something called constructive criticism but who're we kidding? Ian Wright only got that column because Arsenal gave him a platform to perform and he's using it to piss on arsenal. If that doesn't make him a cunt...
