Just listened to the podcast version of the show and he did mention his time at Palace, how great he thought the Palace fans were (especially the away followers) and how he never asked to leave Palace or instigated a move. I read this in his book - He turned up to training, got told to go and see Coppell and Steve told him, the Club had accepted an offer for him from Arsenal. His best mate, David Rocastle was at the Gooners and they had won their 2nd title in 3 years, so he was always likely to move.
He claims in his book, that he was so pleased to joining them, he didn't originally get much more, salary wise, that he was on, at Palace. Didn't blame him at all, for leaving and was only a bit disappointed he didn't really thank our Club, when he first left.
But certainly not an excuse, for the abuse he got, whenever he returned to Selhurst Park.

You can easily double up on Zaha whereas you couldn't do that with Bolasie in the team
Yes exactly it is easier to double up on one side and shut down the threat but against 2 marauders it is much harder to do!

Wright undoubtedly the most exciting player I've ever seen in a Palace shirt. He was absolutely electric, had it all.

Given the amount of shit he got for leaving don't really blame him for having the hump with some of our support.

No shame to say i have manlove and gratitude for what he did for us. It got overshadowed, but that time when him and Brighty came on the pitch at HT in the Fulham 2013 game (Holloways last game, Kasami, 1-4 etc..) was a bit emotional, seeing them together on the pitch at Selhurst again. I guess the younger lot, or anyone under 35 following us must be wondering how anyone can question we had a player better than Wilf is, but we did and it was incredible to see him and the side transform together in that golden period.

It’s not even close. Wrighty was levels above Wilf (and Wilf is excellent).

Finished listening to the interview, here if others want to listen

In fairness to Wrighty, thr interviewer was quite intent in steering his answers towards his time at Arsenal, but he did make a point a couple of times in bringing it back to Palace.

Thought it was quite interesting when he talked about going into therapy. He said that when things took off at Arsenal he lost his way for a bit in the sense of his ego running away with itself and hurt a lot of people around him. Wondered whether it was around the time he and our fans were at loggerheads with each other because he certainly didn’t deal with it in a modest or understated way. His whole demeanour not long after he left was of someone who thought they were God himself. In the game he put us down for instance, his whole attitude was not nice at all. Not talking about the goal he scored, but he was acting like a man parading his gorgeous new girlfriend right in front of his gilted ex who had hit upon bad times, and was rubbing her nose right in it, kicking her while she was down. Just had this self righteous grin on him all afternoon. Was hard to take while experiencing the shock of relegation to boot. Of course, he probably felt justified because of the disgusting songs that certain sections sung about him, not to mention the abuse his family got; but he probably regrets not toning it down somewhat.

Have to say, despite what happened to his mum in regards of the graffiti sprayed on her house after Wright left us, she is apparently still a Palace fan, and only has pictures of Ian in his Palace days around her house.

Like others have said; if you lived through Wrighty’s entire time at Palace, it’s very hard to dislike him. Just gave us far too many great moments and memories.

On the whole Wilf or Wright argument...the way I would look at it is if you could sign a carbon copy of either player in his mid 20’s for Palace now, which one would you go for? I’d have to say Wright; because for all the absolute genius and literally jaw dropping skills and flashes of brilliance each game that Wilf brings to the table, Wright was just more effective, more clinical and ultimately would bring more points to the side. His character was so effervescent, larger than life and infectious, that he made those players around him believe they could achieve more too.

Some good ones in here including the cup final and at 1:57 the classic one v Wimbledon away.

Simple as that for me.
He was brilliant, there's no doubt about that. But Don Rogers was my hero, I was always full of expectation whenever he got the ball on or near the halfway line and I'll never forget his 2 goals against Man U in 1972. What a day, 5-0. Though the best ever player for Palace in the 60 or so years I've been here was Kenny Sansom, the best full back I've ever seen. Including AWB. I still can't believe that we swapped him as part of a deal for Clive Allen. That deal has always seemed 'off' to me.

He has on numerous occasions on TV spoken movingly about his time at Palace.
This is on another thread, death threats were written on his mother's wall.
A video interview with Ron Noades proves that Ron put a price up which Arsenal matched which led to the abuse written on his mother's wall by so-called Palace fans.

He was without doubt the best striker we have ever had at the club and could create a goal out of nothing.

Agree on Kenny, was so obviously England class from even his earliest performances. Thought Ashley Cole ran him a close second in the full -back role, though. Oozed talent, that lad. I remember telling an Arsenal fan that Cole was a future international, only for him to laughingly dismiss the idea on the basis that the player was only proven at lowly Palace and was unlikely to ever make the Gooners first team. Took every opportunity to remind him of that as Ashley's career hit the Heights over the ensuing years, I can tell you!

My one gripe with Don Rogers is he came to Palace at 27 after playing 400 games for Swindon, and made "only" 70 appearances for Palace in his short spell with the club.

To me it was fun having him for a season and a half, but in my mind he was always a Swindon man, and a tad past his prime (27 being a little older then than it is for the players today IMO).

Signed a school book of mine on my way to Purley High School, he was loading his golf clubs into his car. Nice bloke, loved watching him play.

Lost the school book
