View Full Version : Ian Wrights Column in The Sun

Predictable rubbish.

Every single week. 3 recent examples off the top of my head:

Example 1.

‘Shaun should be playing more games and if not, I fear he may need to move’ – Don’t worry, I ‘fear’ Roman thinks he needs to move too. Soon. Plus, as his dad it’d be strange if you said ‘Shaun needs a good long spell in the reserves, and is an overpriced flop’

Example 2.

‘I quit the BBC as I was only there to be a jester for Hansen and Shearer’

Get away? – I thought you were hired for your technical analysis skills?

Example 3.

‘The FA MUST help Gazza’

Why must they? – Is it the new policy that when you get handed an international cap, you also get a handy little laminated card for your wallet with a 24/7 hotline number to an FA approved psychiatrist should you ever have a nervous breakdown?

If he’s eating raw liver whilst playing his Playstation3 with ‘MAD’ scrawled on his forehead, he needs to phone the Samaritans, not Brian Barwick.

How’s it supposed to work? - “Hello, Mr.Barwick, It’s Gazza. I used to work for your company part-time a few years ago? – Anyway, me mates have all buggered off, and I’ve accidentally developed a concurrent drink/drugs/gambling addition, and I was just wondering like, if you had any vacancies like?”

Here’s an idea Ian… seeing as you love him so much, you offer him a job working for your agency? …………. No?... thought not.

Along with Jane Moores pathetic ‘observations’ in her column, Ian Wrights column is one that I can’t be bothered to read anymore.

Sort it out Murdoch.

Why don't you have a go at reading a proper newspaper? I very much doubt whether he writes his own column and is probably getting extremely well rewarded for putting his name to it, so more fool you for reading it. I very much doubt if Rupert Murdoch ever reads it aswell - all he's interested in is how many copies he's sold an a particular day.

He has. That's why he's employing Wright. If you don't want to read the sort of pulp that panders to the most base instincts of the common people then don't waste money on a Murdoch rag.

Has the column got 'No Class' by any chance?

Almost all footballers' "columns" are ghostwritten generic tut. Not read it but I imagine Wrighty's Sun pieces are in this category. Have you really returned to the BBS just to tread the same familiar ground JR?

He didn't 'jump ship' - he was sacked.

And you're right, I do read the Mail, usually online though. Littlejohn has a column in there today.

Check it out. You won't be disappointed.

On the contrary, it reflects very well on me and proves I'm consistent. how many on here can say that?

As a matter of interest, do you think the FA should 'do something' to help Gazza?

It looks like Jack probably isn't a big fan of Ian Wright. But I don't see anything unusual about Jack Regan wanting to make a similar point on a number of different threads over a number of years. You'll find that happens a lot on the BBS.

Exactly.

Quite why someone would go to all the bother of digging out some old quotes to prove I'm consistent is beyond me.

Still, it takes all sorts I suppose.

Whether Wright writes it or not, his name is on the header. He professes to be a big mate of 'Gazza' but thinks it's the FA's problem to sort out.

Why??



Are you an ex-England football international with an alcohol, drug, or gambling addiction?

Do you hit women, and/or are you clinically depressed?

Were you employed by the FA between 1966 and 2007?

Have you got between 25 and 75 caps at full international level?

If you can answer ‘yes’ to 3 of the above questions, the FA could have some exciting opportunities waiting for you, and you could be in line for compensation.

Our national scouting network is currently under represented by problem drinkers, drug addicts, compulsive gamblers, and wife-batterers.

Brian Barwick and his team of FA psychiatrists are waiting for your call NOW so phone 0800-ADDICTION now for more details and for immediate interviews nationwide.

He's claiming to be making a point about Wright's column, not mentioning that he used the call the man a **** on a very regular basis before he bottled the BBS, and could never have a kind word to say about him - I see nothing Jack points out any worse than the average ex-pro's third-rate tabloid column.

I'm just pointing out that JR has his own agenda for those who don't remember him, and that it's a pointless thread.

I actually think JR makes some good points here.

Wright's column is dirge, ghost written or not, however, is probably what it's target audience want/expect to hear.

He's deemed a popular enough figure to have mass appeal and quite probably does.

His duplicity is in the public domain is well documented.

If he was such a mate of Gazza surely a phone call or a visit to see him or the offer for him to stay with him could be be done privately?
But no, it pads out his column nicely.

Exactly right ADE.

I really don't get this 'the FA MUST do something' that Wright spouts.

Why must they 'do something' ??

It's like me going back to an employer of 15 years ago and laying it on a bit thick...

"Hello, is that the Human Resources Department?"

"Yes"

"Oh, Hi, it's Jack Regan here, I used to work for you in 1991? - Anyway, I've had a bit of a battle with the bottle lately, and I've done my last £25,000 at Ladbrokes at the weekend (Michael Stoute trained 2 year-old ridden Dettori beaten by a short head), and I was just wondering if you could 'do something' for me?"

And Regan - I certainly admit to buying The Sun (even though ADE disapproves).

"Partly Responsible" ? - that's decent of him.

"Gazza!... we've na money left for Newky Broon and Chicken vin-a-loo like!"

Why are you saying 15 years ago?
Gascoigne last played for England as recently as 10 years ago.

Although his last act on England duty was to smash up Glenn Hoddle's hotel room.

Wright states the blatantly obvious. But not as bad as Shearer 'He should've scored that'. At least Wright shows some charcter doing it.

Ghosted columns easy money for the pension. They can't have startling opinions all the time though. There's only so much one can say about football. BUt given the newspapers acreage they have to fill it with the likes of Ian's froth and blather.

If you were Wright would you turn it down?

The drunk character in the Bassett England manager film was based on Gazza . ( Kevin Tonkinson )


Then I went round to see him face-to-face and a light switched on.

He realised I was there, his head lifted and he said: "Hello Gaffer."

A big smile spread across his face. The old Gazza was back in the room.


Almost straight out of the film , 7 years later hes still doing it

Gazza rung up Venerials from the police station.

Funnily enough that's exactly what Wright is accusing Christiano Ronaldo of in todays Current Bun.

Apparently, he 'owes' Ferguson after he stood by him after the incident with Rooney in the last world cup. Wright is saying that he has no class, and he shouldn't even be contemplating a move to Real Madrid.

The truth of the matter is you can get away with murder with Ferguson if you're a half-decent footballer. Morals don't come into it.

Physically attack a spectator? - no problem

Fail to attend a drugs test - no problem

Get another player sent off by feigning injury? - no problem

Ferguson's the one with no class, and he laughingly tells us he'll let Ronaldo 'rot in the reserves' rather than sell him.

As for Christiano, if Real Madrid are offering you £300K a week 'netto', fill your boots son - you owe no-one nothing.

She already hads a 'job' - she's Gazza's step-daughter.

Bet she's glad he's back in the news, even if it's for all the wrong reasons, but she's got her 'career' to consider.
