It’s Arsenal legend Ian Wright’s birthday today and to celebrate that fact we’ve found a corker of a video.

Wright scored 185 goals in 288 games for Arsenal. This is an impressive statistic but the raw numbers do not do justice to the man and his ability. Wright scored all sorts of goals, from poachers tap-ins and headers within the six-yard box, to long-range screamers and sensational solo efforts.

It says much for Wrighty’s skill that there is an entire YouTube video devoted to Ian Wright’s greatest lobbed goals. Sit back and enjoy a plethora of nineties’ goalkeepers helplessly watching balls dink over their heads.
