The Jeff has it all in his locker

When Arsene Wenger says Jeff ‘The Jeff’ Reine-Adelaide has it ‘all in his locker’, he doesn’t mean it the way he might if he were referring to some former players who were discovered to have ‘borrowed’ a load of footballs from the training ground. That was the boot of a car anyway, not a locker, but still.

What he means is that the youngster has the talent, ability and physicality to make an impact at the club.

The 18 year old was promoted to the first team during the summer, and was on the bench for last weekend’s 0-0 draw with Boro. His only appearance so far this season was in the last round of the EFL Cup when he played 83 minutes of the 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest.

And the Arsenal manager is backing The Jeff to show what he can do as we prepare to face Reading at the Emirates.

“My belief is that Jeff is ready to play because he has it all in his locker – the strength, the physical power, the technical level,” he told the matchday programme.

“He has to add efficiency to his game – that will come with games as well – but he will have an opportunity to show that I am right about him.

“Part of a career is to grab your opportunity when you get it. So for Jeff, tonight could be an important night, but I am confident he will do well.”

Let’s hope so.

Diaby had surgery again and will not play for four months. I think he played two games this season which was already a victory. In a way, Jeff will give us what we missed from Diaby, vicariously I mean.


Oh Arsene you wiley motivator. 😉

I was trying to find a funny joke to post about Reading in this comment, but realized that when you Google jokes about Reading, you’re only going to find jokes about reading and I didn’t think it was too nice to make fun of the illiterate. But then I thought it about it longer and realized that it was ok and maybe even harmless to post jokes about the illiterate because they can’t read them anyway.

I’ll get back to work now.

Im sorry but with all this going on, I DON’T want Wenger to leave at the end of the season! Please stay!!! I mean we are getting signings now. We got Ozil Sanchez Xhaka Mustafi Cech. And let’s not forget Santi, Kos. These are all top top quality players! So I don’t know what the deal is, obviously we are headed in the right direction. And Wenger should definitely stay!


I’m going to be heartbroken when we lose Wenger. Win or lose, I love everything about the man.


One Jeff to rule them all!


And in the darkness bind them!


For some reason Arsene thinks that the the is silent. Strange.


Launch him!

My name is Jeff

I have it all in my locker because that’s where they put all the sweepings: Podolski’s old phones, Rosicky’s broken guitars, Arteta’s empty hair gel bottles, Flamini’s chemistry experiments, Diaby’s old leg. Getting kind of sick of it if you want the truth.

Don’t forget Miyaichi’s cones!


Hi blogs. By any chance did you coin the nickname The Jeff? As it seems to be an actual nickname for the lad. In and around the football club from top to bottom.

Easy as JVC

It’s fucking genius no mistake!
