Happy Birthday, Ian Wright!

Born 3 November 1963.
Signed with Arsenal in September 1991 for £2.5m.
288 appearances.
185 goals.
In seven seasons, Ian Wright electrified Highbury with dizzying array of scintillating goals. Despite leading the line for most of the "one-nil to the Arsenal" days, Wright became Arsenal's all-time leading scorer when he scored his 179th goal on 13 September 1997. He would remain the highest-scoring Gooner until Thierry Henry  passed him on 17 October 2005. There'll be no taking away his legendary status or his lofty achievements as a Gunner. With that in mind, I hope you'll enjoy this montage of goals from one of the greatest finishers in Arsenal history...
