I was there too that day - :barscarf:

Remember very, very well Rocky’s goal at Anfield in the 1-1 draw in 1988 league cup and his remarkable dribble past 6 Middlesborough players to clinch a victory at Highbury in the 88/89 season, which when it came down to goal difference tipped the balance (along with Micky T at Anfield)

Rewatched "Rocky & Wrighty: From Brockley to the Big Time" last weekend. Enjoyed it just as much as the first 2 times I watched it. :D

Hard not to love Wrighty even though he can come across as a bit of a gobshite on TV sometimes. The man bleeds red and white and is one of the few modern club legends that genuinely believes he was privileged to play for the Arsenal and not the other way round. 8)

Skip to 3:42 to see him turn two defenders inside out. 

Couple of crackers from Wrighty in there too.

Always a good watch -along with the time Wright met Mr Pidgeon at Highbury who was his PE teacher and first person to believe in him and show him some love.

I loved Wrighty, the fact that opposition fans hated him and he loved to wind them up made me love him even more ( and he hated the tiny tots too ) :barscarf:
