Gervinho’s FaceBook Page Swamped By Newcastle Fans


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! 😀

Comments welcome.

    was that his actual facebook that he like checks himself? and he’ll either be thrilled with those messages or he’ll just think we’re a bunch of creeps, hope he’s thrilled though as i would love to see him in a newcastle shirt! 🙂

    Ed it was a terrible idea of yours to publish that. I’m sure he’d be touched by it but honestly, don’t you see how it could come across as a little bit dodgy?

    Jenas’ words spring into mind…

    I reckon We can tie up the Gervinho deal, if Geordie Shore allow him to be a special Guest on it.

    footballers love the attention!

    Tell that to Mehdi Abeid. Since the news, he’s had an average of 100 friends added a day and he’s too nice of a guy to say “hang on lads…”. He’s genuinely frustrated by it because it’s interfering with his personal life – this is why footballers prefer twitter.

    Gervinhos thoughts could be “great I am LOVED by them already”

    Equally they could be “Jesus thats a lot of pressure….what if I am crap will they all turn on me….will this kind of attention be my life as a NUFC player….”

    If he was that bothered about his facebook friends list he should ignore the requests.

    I think gervinho has already quite a good understanding of what the nufc fans are like, both from myself and Drogba; and I can ensure you he has no doubt got a good impression of us already. If he even sees his facebook page he’ll be impressed, and I’m pretty sure he wont even consider that he’ll do crap.

    Two questions 🙂

    1. What if it is a fake page?

    2. What if Gervinho doesn’t like spam?

    The messages left by toon fans were on his fan page(not personal) on facebook as far as i know so that won’t scare him away:) If you open a fan page on facebook you want the attention and publicity it brings.
