Jeff Reine-Adelaide


#21

Can’t remember but he’s not a player PSG will sell anyway.


#22

I liked seeing him on the pitch, minutes are always handy and at this stage of his career, he is hardly going to be dominating games.

He surprised me a few times, although I’m not sure what position he really belongs to?


#23

Totally willing to accept that my memory might be failing me, but has he done much of note for us aside from in pre season friendlies? I just feel generally underwhelmed by him.


#24

He’s got a lot of obvious talent and quality but he clearly is extremely raw/does not process the game fast enough. When I watched the UEFA Youth League game last season against Anderlecht that was obvious…Willock seemed far more advanced than him but I suspect Wenger doesn’t give him chances because he’s not ‘physically developed’ (probably like with Zelalem though I also think Zelalem is more advanced than Reine Adelaide, though not as talented obviously). Really should’ve been somewhere on loan this season playing week in and week out at a competitive level.

Still, I saw enough tiny glimpses of Diaby in that Southampton game for me to dream about him. :heart: :heart: :heart: :DiabyEmoji:


#25

Those (who came here as) 16-year olds are overrated anyway.


#26

Harsh I know this but thought he was crap tbh. Apart from 6 inch passing he was a passenger.
Lucky amount of time he was granted imo.


#27

Yeh. he definitely was pretty crap. Not as much the passing–prefer short sensible passing to the Chamberlain quality-less through ball on repeat approach–but he was slow on the ball/to make decisions and did some stupid dribbles.

Got a lot of improving to do if he wants to take up the mantle from the great Diaby.


#28

Yeah i wont lie; something about his frame reminded me of Diaby and im now hooked. A recipe for failure no doubt though. But i really like the kid.

What i want to know is, what happened to his counterpart?


#29

Yassin Fortune? Playing for the youth teams still.


#30

Thats the one!! Fucking excellent knowledge sir.


#31

Jeff possibly going on loan to Nantes.


#32

I don’t know if Nantes is a good place. Claudio Ranieri is a good manager but hasn’t future with a relegation team like the Yellows. I would like to see him joining Caen.


#33

I’m officially writing him off so.

That’s a big deal in footballing circles obviously. Players rarely recover once I’ve said that.


#34

It doesn’t look good for him…not being brought to pre-season camp was not a good sign (was he injured, though?).


#35

Yep, missed the end of the season with an ankle injury and wasn’t fit until after our Australia tour.


#36

Were people not talking about him having a falling out with Wenger or did I dream that?


#37

Ah ok then I retract my comment, hopefully he goes on loan and has a nice season.


#38

For what it’s worth. Nantes finished 7th last season whilst Caen was 16th.


#39

Caen launched many great talents, Nantes not.


#40

Then use that argument than and not the relegation thing :wink:.
