Primus keen to play at Wembley...

Primus keen to play at Wembley...

...Ok it will not be this season in the FA cup final but Linvoy Primus is targeting the charity shield, sorry it is the 'community shield' now, as his comeback date for Pompey - that is assuming he gets a new contract and of course we do win the FA cup.

Primus has said that his recovery is going very well and he should to be back with the rest of the squad when pre season training starts in July ahead of the curtain raiser for the 2008/09 season - and he hopes that both he and Pompey are a part of this.

The fans favourite is out of contract in the summer but things do seem to be pointing towards him getting another deal, which I think is something that he more than deserves for what he does for this club and the community. It was said to me the other day that he fully believes we will keep him, as if he did not he would have left some time ago.

Again, I did not see this myself - as I had to shoot off - but I was told that Primus was the last man to leave the Wembley turf last weekend, taking in all the celebrations and revelling in them. Yep it is a team game but how many other players that have not played at all in the season and were going to be out of contract at the end of that campaign would have been as involved as that? I dare say not too many to be honest...

Hopefully we can win the FA cup and Primus does get his new deal so he can hopefully play in the community shield on August 10th. If we do make it I for one also plan to be there again, as if for nothing else if I was able to see him make his Pompey return in that game it would be fantastic.

Whatever happens with his palying career, Pompey have to hold onto Linvoy one way or another. Get him in with the youth team, football in the community. The guy is a modern day working class hero.

You can't fault his enthusiam for the game or his commitment to Pompey, be it playing or training or just "being around". The guy is an unsung hero. Let's hope he is here next year and the year after and....

Spot on Matt. Linvoy is visiting our offices in a couple of weeks and I am hoping to have a chat with him to use for a future Toast column!!

I only hope the modern game allows us to repay in some way what we owe him.

I am glad he is back, i am not sure he will be first choice anymore, whilst his understanding with Sol was instant and great; as sky frequently say Sylvain Distin is turning oput to be one of the best deals in recent years. We should be honest and admit our defence has been caught out once or twice due to a lack of mobility and pace at the back

Along with others, i'm not sure what the future holds for Linvoy, But what ever happens he has to be given some role within the club. What an allround top guy. What an inspiration to the younger generation.

and Linvoy will probably only add to that

The man is a legend, and a shining example of a committed player who behaves in a truly professional manner (a great role model as Penton said). In the age of Prima Dona's and Wag's, we need more people like Linvoy in the game. Will he play again for us? I'm doubtful to be honest, I know he's been written off more times than a poodle at a dogfight, but the step up in quality of the squad since he last played has been pretty awesome (and 'Arry will no doubt go shopping in the summer to make it even better). As others have said, once his playing days are over he should definitely be kept on in some role if he's interested....doubt if he's taken coaching badges yet, wouldn't know if he wants to?

Bolton's Wilkinson unlikely to play for Pompey?

Cookie isn't too hopeful of Wilkinson being fit for the play-offs against Plymouth, which means Pompey are probably unlikely to ever see the Bolton striker in a Blues shirt!

Plymouth play-offs dates confirmed!

Dates had pencilled in for the play-off with Plymouth, we now know for sure it'll be a Thursday and Sunday for this. With Pompey knowing if it's home or away first after Northampton.
