Ian Wright & Spurs

Ian Wright & Spurs

First of all may I apologise for my lack of activity on the site, but I've had the more pressing needs of a rather vocal baby to attend to. However now he has appeared to have settled into to life at the Mustchin household, I should be around a lot more.

Now that's out of the way, let us focus our attention on the explosive personality that is Ian wright.

Speaking on his TalkSport show, he revealed that he doesn't know where his son, Shaun Wright-Phillips will be playing next season, but should it be Spurs, then he will gladly cheer on from the stands.

Wrighty said, 'If my son wants to play for Spurs, I will support him playing for Spurs. If it means small-minded Arsenal fans saying I will not be popular at the Emirates then they are idiots. I am now a football pundit, I am a Londoner and I support all London teams.'

Wrighty has enraged some Arsenal fans since retiring from the game with comments that I would only describe as honest, and I imagine that this latest statement will only serve to piss some fans off even more, although I won't be one of them.

Shaun is his son, and any good father would support the career changing decisions of his family without question. Some fans may fall into the trap of the media hype, claiming that Wrighty called Arsenal fans idiots. Which he didn't, he called supporters of our club who chastise him for supporting his son idiots, and I must say, I agree.

If any of our sons went on to play professional football for a bitter rival, which would you put first? Your family or your football team?

It wasnt said like that. He was saying he would support his move not support the club. Stupis****! Ian Wright, Wright, Wright!!

He is a Legend!

I agree completely with this article. What else can a dad do? He must be understandably disappointed that his son has sunk so low but he has no choice but to support him. Wrighty will always be an Arsenal legend and I admire his honesty. I'm sure that if Arsenal gave him the choice then SWP would choose the gunners.

Henry14, you are the small minded diot Wrighty speaks. Did you even read the article?
18/07/2007 11:58:00
I love my family, but put them before Arsenal - no way!
18/07/2007 11:58:00
Lmao @ Emkay. I'm sure that isn't true!!

Sorry but I lost all respect for Ian Wright a long time ago. Of course he supports his son, but if my boy became a professional footballer & played for spuds I would hope he had a great game but I would still want Arsenal to win because they are my team!! Ian Wright is not an Arsenal fan so he can do what the f*** he likes, I couldn't give a damn either way because he is nothing but an ex player who tries to keep himself in the limelight!!

I agree with gooner303 there. You know that SWP would jump at the chance to come to us and personally I'd love to see him. I think he'd be a "loyal player", which is a term that keeps cropping up recently. Wrighty has always had a big mouth and it seems to me that his mouth does get bigger the more people he knows is listening to it. But ultimately his supporting son would always come first and rightly so. Doesn't mean that he'll stop being a Gooner legend!!!

Charlie George once contemplated joining Spurs and almost did until Dave Mackay at Derby rescued him from the shame. He is still happy to knock them any chance he can and is very much an Arsenal legend. For Charlie and all players it is just work - its how they earn their living and Wrighty supporting his son wherever he plays is no less than you would hope he would do. Instead of being angry with Wrighty we should feel sad for his poor son.
