It's impossible not to love Ian Wright.

His debut season at Highbury saw Wright finish as the league's top scorer on 29 goals.



When Le Professeur came to north London, Wright was in the latter stages of his career, touching 33.



From a point where a career in football appeared an unachievable dream, this young striker who'd grown up in the rough south London council estates was tasked with leading the line under George Graham.

For someone who only turned professional three months shy of his 22nd birthday, to go on and achieve what he did in his career, score the number of goals he did and surpass all expectations is a timeline worth revisiting.

An FA Cup final victory was the icing on the cake.

Struggling for form in the league, Arsenal would record their worst league finish of the Premier League era in 1994/95.
