Ian Wright and Lee Dixon react to Robert Pires' bizarre all-time Arsenal XI

Pires Henry Penalty Discussion

We're not exactly sure what Pires was thinking when he picked this team!

Over the years, Arsenal have had some pretty great players – even if they are without a Premier League title since the 2003-2004 season.

Even with the lack of silverware over the last decade of so, there are still plenty of players who you would want in your starting XI.

So, when Gunners hero and the worst penalty taker of all time, Robert Pires, was asked to name is all-time Arsenal XI, you would imagine there were loads of names to pick from.

And, as you would imagine, the likes of Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Patrick Vieira were present, but then some of the selections have got us, and some Gunners legends, scratching our heads.

Lee Dixon was certainly not impressed, and you can see why! 

Coquelin?! Lauren?! Sylvain Wiltord?!?!?!. And one bloke who was even more ticked off than Dixon, was former Arsenal leading goalscorer, Ian Wright!

Amazingly, and really bizarrely, Pires has seemed to chop the likes of Lee Dixon, Cesc Fabregas and Ian Wright! He did, however, find room for Olivier Giroud and himself...which is nice! 

What do you think? Has Pires just picked all his French mates or are Giroud and Wiltord better than Ian Wright?

Ian Wright gets a big shock!
