Before Bergkamp and Henry at Arsenal, there was Ian Wright, Wright, Wright (no relation).

With strike partner Kevin Campbell having already scored a hat-trick, it was Wright who popped up with this truly imperious fourth to put an exquisitely-judged lid on Arsenal’s 4-0 trouncing of Swindon Town on 27th December, 1993.

Part chip; part lob: chlob

And, yes, Swindon were in the Premier League…briefly.

    Holy fuck. What a chlob!

    But damn, those 90s kits…baggy shorts, oversized shirts, ugly designs…all the dudes look as if they are in their big brothers’ kit. Truly shite.

    I remember this season, with Swindon in the PL.

    I was 14, it was really the time when I got into football properly (yes, too many years playing my c64).

    If I remember correctly, didn’t Man Utd hammer them 7-0?

    *checks Google*

    Oops. It was Newcastle who hammered them 7-1.

    We drew with them 2-2 at theirs, beat them 4-2 at Old Trafford.

    I must have still had half my mind on Turrican 2…
