Gervinho had one of the worst Premier League debuts. Having watched Gervinho playing for Ivory Coast during the week against Israel, he had a very good game and I was looking forward to seeing him play for Arsenal against Newcastle.
It went well for a while for Gervinho until he got sent off. A lot has already been said today about that incident. Firstly, did Gervinho dive or was he fouled? There was contact on him but he went down a bit too easily in my opinion. But Joey Barton was not right to do what he did and lift Gervinho up and start a scuffle with him which led to Gervinho pushing Barton in the face and receiving a red card.
Now Gervinho will miss 3 games for Arsenal which is not a good way to start your career. What is your take on this whole incident?
