Gervinho Confirmed a Gooner

Gervinho Confirmed a Gooner

Arsene Wenger has confirmed the signing of Lille forward, Gervinho.

In true Arsenal tradition, the transfer of the Ivorian has been a slightly drawn out affair, or at least it appears that way, however Arsene Wenger has now given confirmation that the player has signed.

Reports over the weekend had suggested that the deal had stalled and Gervinho returned to France, though AW made it clear he sent him home to be with his family for a couple of days.

'Gervinho has joined. He had a medical on Thursday."

'We sent him home for a couple of days because he has a family and children. He did not come because he has not had a session yet.'

Welcome to the club Gervinho, hope you have a long and prosperous career with us.

Perhaps, the reason why Eboue is still hanging about is to hand-hold his breaking in process? Gervinho is certainly no like his fellow Ivorian. Wish him a very good start to his career as that usually sets the tone.

Now now LD we don't wanna mess with that hair, remember what happened to Sagna when he changed his hair?? The freakier the hair the better they play, maybe we should have an entire team with wacky hair styles

Dberg - Then how do you explain the extreme turdness of Abel Xavier?

haha Rocky. That was the first thing I thought of. That and Cisse! I just hope the african cup doesn't have the usual affect it seems to have on Ivorians

Well there has to be one bad apple in there, although the various hairstyles of David James also come to mind.

Long live silly hair! Silly hair and bad teeth, the two most important qualities in a player.

Good player Gervinho. Hope he adapts to our game fast.

Passing it around the middle of the park while the opposition sit back and wait for us to run down blind alleys? I think he'll manage Delta.

I'm certainly not saying that's the case, but with Jack Wilshere's contract at Arsenal still sitting on the table, it's a strange set of quotes from AC Milan's Gennaro Gattuso.
