Nothing To Something; Ian Wright Documentary [VIDEO]

I recently found a fascinating documentary about Ian Wright, the Arsenal striker. The 30-minute documentary from GRM Daily will help people better understand the often misunderstood Wright.

According to 100 Great Goals, “In [the video] the ex-England international talks about his childhood, his burning love for football and Match of the Day, getting arrested for stealing a car, finally breaking into football with Crystal Palace, and eventually joining Arsenal. On Arsenal, Wright talked about how important David Rocastle was in helping him bed into the club, that tackle on Peter Schmeichel, and ultimately how proud he was to represent the Gunners.”

Post your feedback regarding the video in the comments section below.

  1. Nice one Jack – thanks. An amazing documentary. Ian Wright was a devastating striker in his prime – both at Palace with Mark Bright and at Highbury, impressive, considering he started his professional career relatively late.

    He always seemed happy, I had no idea how dark his childhood was. Regards to his teacher, his co-worker who told him to take the trial, and RIP David Rocastle.

  2. Ian Wright Wright Wright! Absolute legend! Played with his heart on his sleeve and scored goals for fun.

    You should look up the clip of Ian Wright meeting Bergkamp for the first time if you haven’t seen it.

  3. What an amazing documentary. This man overcame so much to get to a place where he could show how talented he was. Thanks for sharing.
