That’s true Zenith. But I watch him on TV as a pundit. He has zero knowledge. His analysis is bull crap. All he does is try to be the biggest Arsenal fan on tv and social media because that’s what’s earning him bread and butter. Look at him in that video cheering Eddie. Tell me that’s genuine. Do you see Pires doing that? Or Bergkamp? Even Mers handles himself in a more dignified manner.

Theyve all got plenty photo opps and insta videos doing this sort of thing. Bergkamp probs less so, but then hes a coach whose working.

I doubt Wright went to the match just for that photo op, his post just got traction for who he is.

I dare say if I was in his position I'd take my opportunity to get into as many free games as I could too if I still loved football post retirement.

I genuinely don't see what the problem is tbf. Mans still got sauce at 50 odd years old and is a character.

Punditry is bad enough without twisted sour old farts like Chris sutton, Graeme souness and alan Shearer talking bias shite every show. Worse still we could have michael owen or Paul Scholes who have some absolutely bizarre views.

Wright is at least upbeat and I'm happy to see hes enjoying life after the service he put in for us.

Is it fun being this cynical about everything? Do you really believe Ian Wright spend half of his day travelling to Leeds and watching a game just so he could get a photo with Nketiah and get some attention?

Listen to yourself.

It's good to see an older vet like Wright mentor and support a young black English striker from London like Eddie. He can pass on someone on his experience and what he's learned coming up in the game. I don't know how or why you'd hate on that.

How come we never see Wrighty at our u17s or u23s? Could it be because there’s no attention available there? The man literally handed his phone to a person next to him and said film me while I cheer Eddie Nketiah. Sad.

You're missing the point.



I'm not going to knock what Wrighty is doing by embracing another young black player and supporting him.

He's an Arsenal fan and recognises a great talent when he sees it.
Just enjoy the fact that Eddie is an Arsenal player and is getting some good experience on loan that will give him a better shot to reach his potential.
I thought we got our Arsenal back - but we got Emery

You're acting like you didn't know who this guy was. He's always had that egocentric attitude and personality. That's part of what made him great. I mean look at his goal celebrations, he loves the spotlight. I can see if he was a fan of another team, or wasn't ever an Arsenal player, then I'd be annoyed, but he's one of us. Just sit back and watch the show.

Pleased for the kid. The level of football is low but it's a confidence boost. Bring him back in January if we can if he's continues to score.
