"MY old Arsenal team-mate David Rocastle would be turning in his grave right now if he looked at what is happening with the Gunners."
I won't stoop so low as to use David Rocastle in my argument, however Ian Wright is more than happy to exploit the death of an Arsenal legend in order to pen a rather poorly constructed hunk of pseudo-emotive drivel, in which he pretends to care for people other than himself such as Arsenal football club and Arsenal fans. Ian Wright has put the boot into Arsenal FC on several occasions since he left the club back in 1998, he even declared upon leaving Arsenal for the hammers:
"But I believe West Ham will catch up with them and that Harry is building a squad capable of winning something - and I want to help."
The undistilled genius in this quote was a sign of things to come from Ian Wright, he has never quite had the brain to think before he opens his big mouth, in fact these days I wonder whether he actually possesses any capacity for independent thought. He's insulted the club, urged Arsenal players to leave and generally done anything that will earn him a bit of cash, it must even be a struggle for his minute brain to coordinate having a sh*t.
Now he has stooped to a new low even for Mr 'peanut-brained-I write-for-a-paper-with-a-reading-age-of-8- moneygrabbing-soul-selling' Wright. Amusingly Wright's article came just before a very exciting young Arsenal side dispatched a strong Stuttgart 3-1, still I am sure Ian is still desperately worried for our chances next season, not quite as worried as he is for the rate of increase of his bank balance though. David Bentley would probably run Wright close in a footballers mastermind challenge, Bentley is probably a tad brighter as he can create words out of nothing such as the brilliant 'betterment'.
Personally I fear for Ian Wright's microscopic brain, it must be ever so lonely inside his incredibly thick walled cranial vault, relatively speaking it is so isolated in time and space that it must be crying out for help with these rather incoherent sparks that are used to generate journalism of the lowest gutter variety. Wright's comments are also symptomatic of a media that is sometimes keen to deliberately whip up controversy while throwing ethics out the window, all in aid of a fast buck. Sink any lower Wrighty and you'll be playing for Tottenham.
