Is Ian Wright no longer a Gooner?


By Gunnerblue

Ian Wright is one of Arsenal’s true legends. His 185 goals in 288 appearances and his obvious love of Arsenal was all there to see.

But ever since his son Shaun Wright Phillips opted to sign for another London club his allegiance to Arsenal has shown distinct signs of shaking.

He is pictured here posing for photos in Moscow’s Red Square prior to the Champions League Final holding the "Cyprus Blue" flag.

The photo was sent to us by Chelsea fan, Andreas Protopapas, who actually traveled to Moscow to watch the Final all the way from Cyprus.

Pity he wasn’t rewarded for his loyalty.

Ian Wright had those predatory instinct that we have been lacking since Henry's hey days. I wish he was playing for us

Wrighty would never have left Arsenal for the money like Adebayor wants do

topgun said...

Maybe ian Wright put the jinx on Chelsea by traveling all the way to Moscow to watch them

Hi
I really think you do a great job with most of the article you write, but i dont understand people bashing Ian Wright.

He carried Arsenal for long periods in the ninties and always showed his love for Arsenal when in the red shirt.

You can't expect not support his son even if he ended up at Chelsea. Especially when we didnt want to sign him.

please keep up the fantastic articles and let Wrighty get on with his life.

Ian Wright would have won us the title if he was playing last season!

"Ian Wright would have won us the title if he was playing last season!"

So would Eduardo if someone hadn't nearly kicked his leg off.

Wrighty is a media whore these days with no particular allegiance to Arsenal anymore. I don't blame him for supporting his son, but he was the one who encouraged him to go to Chelsea over Arsenal who were seriously interested, but priced out of the market by the chavs.

We need to sign a striker in Wright's mould. Huntelaar seems to be a prolific scorer who would do well in the premiership

It seems that Wright's advice to his son to reject Arsenal was not the right one after all. If Shaun had signed for Arsenal he would have been a vastly improved player by now and an England regular.

not only does his boy play for chelsea. but wrighty has said many times he feels love for all london teams even spurs. he did of course play for hammers and palace too.

most importantly EVERY ARSENAL FAN SUPPORTED CHELSEA OVER UNITED IN THAT FINAL. we fucking hate united, an now that mourinho's gone i would liked to have seen chelsea, who we had great relations with back in the day, and grant lift that euro cup. it was london vs manchester.

back in the day it were liverpool, united and arsenal as powerhouses. when cfc won the lottery i was glad cos it meant if we didnt win the league they could instead of united. we were champions an i was glad to see chelsea second. once we werte outta the title race i wanted cfc to sneak it off united. i always supported chelsea over united, liverpool, newcastle, spurs. they were likeable. this hardcore chelsea arsenal rivalry is recent, only cos they messed us up, they throw too much dosh around. there is a dirtyness to chelsea now but still so is united and the glazers.

if u ask proper cfc fan, traditional rivals are fulham, spurs and leeds. and arsenal's are spurs and united.

anyway

IAN
WRIGHT, WRIGHT, WRIGHT

I am a Chelsea fan and here are some home truths for you:

1. You are a selling club
2. You will fail to make it to the Group stages of the CL
3. You will also struggle to qualify for the CL next season
4. Fabregas, Clichy and Van persie will want out next season
5.You will only survive as a top six club by pinching other clubs youngsters and then brag on about your youth system

Need I go on?

Fuck off chav. You lot barely had a history before the Russian came in, and even then it was all bought. Need I say more?

I am an Arsenal fan and here are some home truths for you chavs:

1. You are a fake club with a shit history
2. You have no class whatsoever (as demonstrated in part by the timing of Scholari's announcement during Euro08)
3. You will also struggle to qualify for the CL next season
4. Lampard, Terry and Drogba will want out next season, if not this season
5.You will only survive as a top six club by spending ridiculous amounts of blood-tainted money on players you don't always need

Need I go on?

Chelsea fan said...

Whatever you say, stealing other club's youngsters is far worse than buying your players like we have been doing!

We have also won back to back titles something you have never done and were a penalty miskick away from winning the CL.

So lay off and go back to playing your 5 a side football in a full length pitch.

Anonymous said...

I guess you were an Arsenal fan before Chelsea became Fort Knox.

Gooner said...

As has been said before, you're a classless club with fk all history.
Your lack of class showed once again last season when your fans spent most of their vocal chords telling your manager he didn't know what he was doing.
Despite your very recent success and newly made 4 year history your club still has to resort to advertising CL games on the Evening Standard to avoid not selling out, so tell me how does that make you a big club?
Every other club supporter would rather see Arsenal or Man Utd win the League over your lot because we do it without boring the pants off the viewing public.
Now that the Mourinho era has thankfully passed you may start to play some 'watchable' football, something that your club was always proud of (remember those days?) before the Russian revolution.

Gunner4life&beyond said...

I'm an Arsenal fan, and i sure as fuck didn't suport Chelsea in the final, so speak for yourself next time. Wasn't supporting United either, but I'm glad Chelsea didn't win. Only thing better would have been for them both to get done for corruption and kicked out the competition.

Most of your Youth team is made up of players bought/stolen from other clubs!!

"We have also won back to back titles something you have never done and were a penalty miskick away from winning the CL."

Listen up you muppet, we've not only won the title back to back; we've won it 3 years on the trot in the days when you where smaller than Fulham and Brentford!! (pre Sky TV so it probably doesn't even count to you!!)

"So lay off and go back to playing your 5 a side football in a full length pitch."

Which resulted in the same number of trophies as your £500m hoof it long football team last season!!

Ian turned into a douche a long time ago

P. Taker said...

It's nice to see that educational standards have risen sufficiently that a Chav fan can use a keyboard. Next stop is to gain some analytical skills so that you don't just write garbled nonsense.
Still, schools nearly out so I expect we'll have more of this nonsense to suffer from you until September when the conker season should provide you with more healthy outlet for your pre-teen angst.

Ian Wright is not Arsenal, Ian Wright is all about Ian Wright. Comments that he wouldn't have left us as Ade did are ignorant. During the run in to the 98 title, Wright sulked about Arsenal refusing to sell him to (I think) Benfica. He wanted to leave for more money at a time when we were on the brink of doing the double. Our current egotist should be sold to Milan and see how long they stand for him headbutting his team mates. As for Chelsea, they can have as much money as they like, they'll always be two bob. Everyone goes on about JT's tears in c Moscowl, what about when he cried in court, in front of the judge...you just don't do it.

Tom said...

Awful article who gives a f*** what Wright does when he's allowed out. He's a muppet.

Chelsea chav ... oh dear - assuming greatness just like your cretinous owner who throws millions after millions after millions chasing glory - risible and unsustainable. How much is it by now? 600 million? has to eb more or less, and what exactly did you win last season? er ... let me see ... oh yes! FUCK ALL you idiot cunt. Your club is already a joke in world football but I look forward to watching the next few years as the wheels really come off - you ssacked the most effective manager you'll EVER have - on the whim of that mafioso gangster who OWNS you, what a clown ... still it's HIS TOY I suppose, happy with that chav? When Scolari fails to deliver, as he surely will he'll be out the door as well, and so the circus will go on ... buying players for many times their worth and spunking money in the process - what a bunch of jokers. You are going to become even more absurd than those wankers in Milan, bring it on chavs.

hey chelsea fan u fuckin scum, why dont u worry about ur own fuckin club, the arsenal are just fine and by the way we have our own home truths bout ur side of london aswell

1- chelsea are only any good cuz they got loads of money which for some reason u decided to buy shitty anelka with?

2- you buy good players like sheva and turn them into pure shit

3- back to back titles dont mean shit if they're in the past

4- the arsenal have a far better history than chelsea any way

5- we may be a foriegn club but every englishman uve got are either shit or leaving and due to arsene wengers genius in a few years we will be full of english tallent with theo walcott and various other youth players comin through

Need I go on?''

how about i go on, tom taiwo, woods and the other young guy you stole from leeds that their livid about, ben sahar who you nicked from an israeli club, the young argentinian guy you poached last season
need i go on?

all clubs do it like it or not, the fact that arsenal have had more success through better contacts and scouting choosing better players to poach is neither here nor there

spurs- taarabt, bostock, huddlestone, pekhart, to name a few

united- rossi, the new italian kid they just nicked off roma, pique, ronaldo, rooney, all youngsters who had their heads turned by united

liverpool- countles duffers theyve nicked and sent back, bastian leto, nemeth, pacheco, the dutchkid they nicked from ajax last season.

the deluded fans who make out that arsenal are the only club who are doing this need to put there sofa in storage stop watching sky sports news reading the red tops and listening to talkshite radio and get into the real world and look up some facts

if being a selling club means getting 23million profit for someone lkeanelka whos never looked half the player he was in 2 seasons for us, getting 16m for a henry that had more than seen his best days was losing his pace and getting more and more injury prone, and only cost us 10 in the first place, 25m for overmars who went on to make less than 50 apps in 3 years for barca before retiring then so be it!

if being a selling club means not buying players like anelka swp shevchenko etc for 15, 21, 30m and paying tem ridiculous wages to do nothing and not even get on the bench alot of the time and keeping hold of people like drogba and lampard against there will when they nowwont perform next season then thank fuck we are!

as for winning a title 2 years in a row, youve already been shown up on that one as we done it 3 years in a row, but of course your one of those chelsea fans that a. only watched football since sky started and b. only rockedup at chelsea after abramovich and his millions made em seem like a better prospect than whoever you supported (if anyone) before

now, on your way you imbecile!

Anonymous said...

oh and on top of that how about a litle history lesson for you

only club to go premier league season unbeaten(believe nottingham forest are the only other english club to have done it full stop, and that was when the league had less teams) and only club to go 49 games unbeaten in english league history

first london club to reach a cl final

longest serving top flight club without a break

profit made on net transfers in wengers time yet for 10 years the only club to have challenged man u's unrivalled spending power (pre abramovich) with anything like regularity, cska chelsea are a flash in the pan being fired by abramovichs gunpowder and when he gets bored of your fans who canteven be arsed to turn up to watch the dross served up by the most expensive team in the league and leaves your club will go back to being the same damp squib cup team it always has been.

blow on about 3 years without a trophy all you like, but it was 50 years and counting since you won the league before abramovich yet you convieniently forget that and act like youve always been some super power

man u fans who join in this stupidity dont forget the 26years you went without a league title and the 3 years you yourselfswent without a major title not so long ago
