The Ian Wright query 0

Posted on August 09, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Ian Wright, former Arsenal striker and general club legend, tends to find himself in the headlines more often than not. Whether it’s because of his overwhelmingly in-your-face shirts during the World Cup or his ‘out there’ opinions, Wright certainly knows how to draw the attention of a crowd – and that’s putting it mildly.

In recent weeks, he’s taken it upon himself to voice his opinions regarding several Arsenal Football Club matters. Two of the biggest are that the Stan Kroenke takeover is awful news for the club, and the other is that the Gunners’ days of challenging for the Premier League title are over. Those are both loaded subjects, to put it mildly, and it’s time for us to unpack them.

Lacazette claims Aaron Ramsey is an Arsenal legend 0

Recently a colleague of mine wrote about Jeremie Aliadiere’s questionable status as an Arsenal legend after the French forward appeared for Arsenal legends. As we all know, Aliadiere is only a legend in his own lunchtime.

However, Arsenal’s French striker Alexandre Lacazette has called midfielder Aaron Ramsey a legend in an interview talking about the Welshman’s future in north London.

Lacazette told Sky Sports News: “Aaron has been there for about 10 years, he is like a legend at the club.

“We have to be respectful for everything he has done and of course with his quality, he can help the team to be better. He brings stability, quality and leadership.

Outrage over Arsenal’s rumoured new home kit 0

Unsurprisingly many Arsenal fans have mixed views over the future of the club now that Arsene Wenger’s departure has been announced. Some can’t wait to see who is brought in, whereas others are left to wonder whether or not the uncertainty of a new manager is going to disrupt them over the course of the next few months. Whatever the case may be, it seems as if most of them are unanimous in their hatred of one thing in particular – the Gunners’ rumoured new home kit.

It’s time for yet another trip down memory lane, and this time, we’ll be heading all the way back to 1996 in order to re-live Arsenal’s final trip to Ewood Park before Arsene Wenger became the club’s new manager just a few months later. It was a tense affair that took place in the early days of the Premier League’s existence, and as such, the Gunners hadn’t quite exploded into life just yet and they were still waiting to break their way into the title picture in a serious way.

Ian Wright felt sorry for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during Arsenal’s defeat to Tottenham 0

Former-Arsenal star Ian Wright has admitted that he felt sorry for new signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during Arsenal’s hugely damaging derby defeat at the hands of Tottenham on Saturday.

Arsenal’s season was dealt a massive blow on Saturday as they fell to an uninspiring loss against Tottenham. Harry Kane was once again the difference for Spurs as he rose above everyone else to score the only goal of the game.

The likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette were unable to hit back for the Gunners as they were condemned to their eighth defeat of the season. Arsene Wenger’s men are now seven points adrift of Tottenham and eight points behind Chelsea in the final Champions League spot.

Wenger must put faith in Lacazette says Arsenal legend 0

According to Arsenal legend Ian Wright, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger must show faith in French striker Alexandre Lacazette this weekend in the north London derby against Tottenham.

The 26-year-old joined the Gunners from Lyon in a club-record deal that cost the north London club £52million. The striker has made a bright start to life in England, scoring seven times in 12 appearances.

However, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has decided to bench the forward in games at both Liverpool and Manchester City. Lacazette came off the bench to score against City and surely has to start in the derby.

Arsenal host Tottenham in the Premier League on Saturday in the hotly-anticipated north London derby. Ahead of the game, Ian Wright has sent a message to Arsene Wenger’s players, with the contest turning into a must-win game.

Arsenal fell to a disappointing 3-1 defeat in their last game against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. While it is in no way embarrassing to lose to City, it was a game they had to win to maintain their slim title hopes.

Goals from Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus saw the home side to a comfortable win, with Arsenal only able to hit back through substitute Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsenal have been able to arrest their recent slump with a string of very impressive wins that has seen pressure relieved on both the team and the manager.

Wins over Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League, Everton in the Premier League and Norwich in the Carabao Cup have allowed the London side to maintain their challenges in all three competitions, while it has banished the memory of their awful 2-1 loss to Watford the week before.

The Gunners are now turning their attention to their Premier League match with Swansea, which is a must win.

Arsenal won a thrilling contest on Tuesday as they defeated Championship side Norwich 2-1 in the Carabao Cup. The win secures their place in the quarter-finals of the competition and relieves some of the pressure on the side.

Following a torrid 2-1 loss at the hands of Watford, Arsenal have managed to turn their form around as they have claimed wins against Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League, Everton in the Premier League and now Norwich in the cup.

Sean Dyche 33/1 to be next Arsenal boss as club legend champions his case 2

Posted on October 03, 2017 by David Nugent

When club legends speak, it is hard to ignore them sometimes. Arsenal legend Ian Wright stated recently that he would take Burnley boss Sean Dyche as a replacement for Arsene Wenger, but that he believes Dyche is more likely to end up as England boss instead.

Sean Dyche is a very promising boss

For me, Sean Dyche has done an excellent job at Burnley. He has managed his resources and players superbly. The Clarets now look like an established Premier League side. The fact that they are unbeaten from away games at Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton is a testament to Dyche’s management.
