Arsenal v Chelsea Review: At Least One of These Teams Will Challenge For The Title

The biggest money-spinning game in the history of domestic league football didn’t really live up to its billing, though I’m sure Chelsea went home happy. I wouldn’t say they ground out the win, but they were prepared to work harder than Arsenal. They closed down higher up the pitch and most of the time presented…

Win Signed Ian Wright Poster & Football!

All week I’ve been celebrating the achievements of one of the most charismatic players I’ve ever had the joy of watching. So the good people of wehustle.co.uk, makers of the Ian Wright ‘Nothing to Something’ video (and if you haven’t watched it you really should), have kindly given me a signed poster and football from…

How Ian Wright Saved My Life

A guest post today from @TheSquidBoyLike I have a confession to make. I was originally a Liverpool fan. Well, the label of “fan” might be too much – my dad loosely followed them, so when the 1992 FA Cup final came about I copied him in cheering the Scouse Reds onto victory. Thankfully I was…

After today Arsenal sit in fifth place on nine points, ahead of Manchester City by goal differential. Arsenal possessed the ball comfortably much of the time, but conceded a…

Ian Wright: Goalscorer

Ian Wright Week continues here on AngryOfIslington with my appreciation of his talents. If you don’t like Ian Wright, come back on Friday. If Ian Wright had a dictionary entry it would surely just say ‘goalscorer’. His greatest talent was putting the ball in the net. Wrighty could bang them in from anywhere. From empty…

21 Years Ago: Ian Wright Signs For Arsenal

Next week sees the 21st anniversary of Ian Wright signing for Arsenal. This is the rather low-key announcement from the following week’s programme: Wrighty had already played two away matches by this time, and having scored four goals in the two games, no doubt his confidence was high – somewhat higher than when pictured on…
