Ger In There

Wow!! Finally Arsene Wenger has heeded the fans advice and splashed out a bit of money on a new player. Gervinho. An Ivory Coast international and league and cup double winner last season with Lille. Admidttedly I do not know a great deal about the player, but I am still filled with a fair amount of optimism with this signing. Hopefully he will be able to forge a good partnership with RVP and provide the added goals that we have been lacking from our other strikers in recent seasons and who knows, maybe this may lead to some more big money, big name signings. Here is a small factfile on our new acquisition:

  • Full Name: Gervais Yao Kouassi
  • Squad No: 27
  • Position: Forward
  • Age: 24
  • Birth Date: May 27, 1987
  • Birth Place: Anyama, Ivory Coast
  • Height: 5' 9'' (1.75m)
  • Weight: 66 kg 
  • 14 goals in 34 league appearences last year
