Alan Smith: Wright, Wrongs & a European Cup

Hola Big Interview listeners!

In part two of my chat with Alan Smith, the Arsenal legend takes us to Copenhagen and Arsenal's famous victory over Parma in the final of the 1994 European Cup Winners' Cup. Alan will recall the famous names among that glittering Italian side - Zola, Asprilla and Brolin to name three - and, of course, his own wonderful, decisive goal.

That should have been the crowning moment of his career. But, as Alan will explain, he had by then lost his confidence and was no longer enjoying his football. We talk about why that was. It's an important message.

And we also discuss the arrival at Highbury of Ian Wright and why Alan was unable to click with his new team-mate on the pitch, as well as Alan's prominent role in the FIFA computer games.
