Fans are once again planning to protest against Silent Stan’s ownership at Wembley on Saturday, which Wrighty has backed.
The former Gunner has been vocal in his support of those trying to bring about change at Arsenal, describing Usmanov’s attempted takeover as ‘great news’ and backing those who didn’t turn up to the game again Sunderland.
Whether Arsenal’s third FA Cup final in four seasons is the right place to protest against the club’s owner is debatable. However, at least they can guarantee he’ll hear them loud and clear this time – the American sports club owner is flying in the for game.
