We asked Newcastle fans yesterday if they would like to wish Newcastle target Gervinho a happy birthday.
Gervinho – looks like Newcatsle fans want him on Tyneside
It was the good idea of one of our readers, Oleg G, who sent me Gervinho’s Facebook address.
And he sent me anther note a little later yesterday afternoon, saying that Gervinho’s Facebook page had been sent thousands and thousands of happy birthday messages, and it seemed to coincide with the article being published.
The article was published at around 1:25 pm yesterday Newcastle time, and by 5:30 pm Gervinho had received more than 13,000 new messages.
We just hope he wasn’t upset by all the messages – and by the way the Ivory Coast player was 24 years old on May 27th.
It was an amazing response from Newcastle fans – looks like they want him on Tyneside! 😀
