Best Memes of Gervinho Refusing to Watch the Penalty Shootout

Posted on 9 Feb, 2015, by in Soccer

There were plenty of memorable things about the penalty shootout between Ghana and the Ivory Coast in the final of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, among them Gervinho not watching the whole thing unfold, going by the reaction of the crowd and his teammates near him. More

Gervinho – Another Miss of the Season for Him

Posted on 23 Dec, 2013, by in Soccer

Few players are capable of producing a miss that’s worthy to be called the worst of the season and minutes manage to make a very difficult situation into a goal. AS Roma have that kind of player in Gervinho, who never ceases to amaze with his ups and downs coming in a matter of minutes. More

AS Roma – Gervinho Is the Biggest Surprise of All

Posted on 8 Oct, 2013, by in Soccer

In the whole surprise act that are AS Roma, leading the Italian Serie A with a perfect record of 7 wins from 7 matches, the resurgence of Gervinho, who looked like a lost cause during his short tenure with Arsenal, might be the most stunning of all. More

AS Roma – Francesco Totti Keeps the Perfection Going

Posted on 5 Oct, 2013, by in Soccer

Maybe until he doesn’t win a second Serie A title with AS Roma and become the greatest scorer in league history, Francesco Totti won’t retire. A brace in the clinical 3-0 win over Inter, he led his team to carry on with their perfect start, while pushing himself closer to the seemingly unreachable Silvio Piola. More

Arsenal FC – Santi Cazorla Enjoying Playing on His Own

Posted on 31 Mar, 2013, by in Soccer

Giving Santi Cazorla the reins in the middle of the pitch isn’t such a bad idea. No Jack Wilshere, no Diaby (as usual), no Theo Walcott. Arsenal were just fine. In a match that was about scoring and creativity, there was no problem filling the midfield with players who do just that, giving Arsenal one of their few truly fun to watch wins of the season. More

Arsenal FC – Santi Cazrola Continues to Stand Out

Posted on 17 Mar, 2013, by in Soccer

He didn’t score, but once again, his work rate and decisions on both ends of the pitch put him a level above the rest of the team. Santi Cazorla keeps pushing Arsenal forward, like he did in the midweek away win, giving the team the kind of bite that was lacking for quite some time with his relentlessness, that might suffice for a place in the Champions League when the season is over. More

Arsenal FC – Santi Cazorla Joins the Dirty Divers

Posted on 9 Dec, 2012, by in Soccer

Don’t let the win change your mind. Arsenal are still slow, predictable and easy to defend against. When a referee gives Santi Cazorla a penalty after a disgraceful dive, helping Mikel Arteta convert from the spot twice for contreversial reasons, there wasn’t much need for a great performance.

Arsenal FC – Lukas Podolski is Another Striking Failure

Posted on 2 Dec, 2012, by in Soccer

It doesn’t matter what excuses Arsene Wenger uses this time about his direction, finances and ability to make Arsenal a big club again, it’ll all sound like lies. Santi Cazorla isn’t as influential, Jack Wilshere, healthy or not, isn’t the man to change everything and Wenger’s latest experiment at striker, this time with Lukas Podolski, was a miserable failure. More

Arsenal FC – Can’t Win With Gervinho as a Striker

Posted on 25 Oct, 2012, by in Soccer

While it might be easier to blame the defense for falling apart near the end, the bigger problem for Arsenal in their Champions League loss was the lack of a natural and capable player to finish the nice work done by the midfield, as Gervinho proved once again he isn’t the player to put their trust in. More

Arsenal FC – Gervinho and Lukas Podolski Keep Scoring

Posted on 4 Oct, 2012, by in Soccer

Somehow, Arsenal are making up for the departure of their best player and scorer. Gervinho, of all people, is leading the gunners with 5 goals this season, although some of them, like his fluke striker against Olympiakos, haven’t been top class. Lukas Podolski is right behind him, making sure people don’t forget this team does have scoring option without actually playing a productive striker. More
