Gervinho’s ridiculous miss in Arsenal’s defeat at Bradford (GIF, video & the best Tweets)

1355257750059 Gervinhos ridiculous miss in Arsenals defeat at Bradford (GIF, video & the best Tweets)In many ways, Gervinho sums up the malaise at Arsenal under Arsene Wenger in recent seasons.

Where once “The Professor” signed unknown players from Ligue 1 and moulded them into global super stars, now Wenger appears to be luring some of the best players appearing in France and slowly turning them into laughing stocks.

As Gervinho’s horrible season continues, spare a thought for Marouane Chamakh who is arguably even a bigger failure at the Emirates with both arriving at Arsenal with high hopes.

Gervinho, who regularly pulls out important goals or assists for the Ivory Coast, was a key man in Lille’s Ligue 1 triumph in 2010/2011, where he eclipsed Eden Hazard in the same OL side.

The miss from Gervinho just before half-time will live on as one of the worst of the campaign and in retrospect it looks crucial with Arsenal only later finding an equaliser until there were two minutes remaining.

It is fair to say the complexion of the tie would have completely changed had Arsenal gone in level at half-time.

You fear this could be the end for Gervinho at Arsenal and Arsene Wenger could pay a large price for sticking with the Ivorian for so long.
