Arsenal put out a very strong team last night and still failed to make it into the semis against an albeit very impressive Bradford. Unfortunately this ‘strong team’ included the super-flop Gervinho. His miss last night from three yards may be his most significant touch yet for the Gunners. If only it didn’t take him longer to sort his legs out than it takes me to do my annual tax self-assessment, Arsenal may well have gone on to take the game and have a chance at some silverware this season. We may see the above clip as entertainment, but to Gervinho- and passionate Arsenal fans alike- it’s simply a direct extract from last night's feverish dreams.
Wenger denies being embarrassed by Arsenal’s embarrassing Capital One Cup exit against Bradford, but watching Gervinho’s epic miss over and over again will surely do the trick
