I like the looks of Gervinho.
Not his actual looks. Because to be honest, he is quite an ugly bastard.
But I like the way he plays football.
And I also like the fact that he bitch slapped Joey Barton with an open hand.
Very WWE indeed.
Usually players from abroad need a period of settling in. They need time to adjust to the way English football is played.
I think that Gervinho will hit the ground running. Or he will hit Joey Barton again. One or the other.
I was very impressed with him yesterday. Almost as impressed as when the barmaid in the boozer I was drinking in bent over and I saw her thong.
It was blue by the way.
Gervinho appeared more direct than Mike Ashleys very own Sports Direct empire.
And that is a welcome change from 'crab football'.
Arsene Wenger has done a good bit of business here.
I only hope that he doesn't try to turn Gervinho into a left-back or something like he tried to turn Nikki B into a winger.
Its a shame he was red-carded, although to be fair if you strike someone in the face then the rules are clear. Its a straight dismissal.
I only wish that he proper, and I mean proper, knocked Barton out.
It would have been banter if he had ripped off his shirt Hulk Hogan style and performed a Suplex or a DDT on the little mug.
I couldn't see the logic when we were after Gervinho at first. Then again I couldn't see the logic of Ryan Giggs doing Imogen (but then I realised that she is lovely).
But he is something that we needed. A direct player who runs at people scaring the shit out of them.
And lets face it, John Terry and co will be bricking it because they've seen how hard Gervinho can slap.
After his 'rest' I'm sure Gervinho will impress me even more. That doesn't take a lot though.
Keep It Goonerish......
