Linvoy repeats his Wembley aim

Linvoy repeats his Wembley aim

For some time Linvoy Primus had been saying that he wanted his teammates to secure the FA cup so he could make his Pompey return at Wembley in the community shield...

Now that he has been given his new contract, and we have of course won the FA cup he has told the Pompey Site that this remains well and truly his aim, as he also looks to Europe too: 'I definitely hope to be involved in that match. That's the plan.

'The team have held their end up so now it's up to me!

'And, of course, Europe! I keep forgetting about that. 'It's not until the realisation that you've won the cup goes away, that you think of Europe but it's going to be great.

'It's an amazing place to be and it's like a dream really. You know you're there, but until you actually see that first fixture it's hard to believe.'

It was such a shame that injury robbed Primus of the chance of playing in the cup final - or at least being in that squad, as if anyone deserved this he did, but he did of course get the loudest cheer of anyone when he lifted the cup.

Lets just hope that he can also get the loudest cheer when we go up to lift the community shield on August 10th! Hopefully this will not only be a game that he will start, but ideally, even if only for sentimental reasons, he will start as captain...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

i was saddened to read of Reg Flewin's passing. i watched nearly all the home games of the Back to Back championship-winning seasons. Reg was a magnificent and inspirational captain, leading from by example. Like Bobby Moore, he had this uncanny ability to read a game enabling him to always be in the right place at the right time. He was never unruffled. also, like his team-mate Peter Harris, he was locally born and bred and could often be seen around the locality helping out his father's green grocery business. Reg Flewin was a credit to the City, the Club and the Game and should be suitably recognised as such. i was surprised that the Pompey official site didn't make more of the news. i hope that he was able to enjoy seeing the team he loved and served so well winning the FA Cup a week before he passed away. colsue.

It would be marvellous to see Linvoy on the Wembley pitch not carrying a video camera but wearing the famous blue shirt!! I know how much he wants it after our recent chat.

Go for it Linvoy; even a place on the bench would be seen as success. Then, when we are 2-0 ahead with 10 mins left, on you come to help keep a clean sheet.

linvoy will make the squad for the charity shield - sorry community shield - and i reckon he will start too. there is little room for sentiment these days, but i reckon if he is fit enough 'arry will show some and give him a starting place...

Harry will Linvoy a part to play. HR knows how has looked after him over the years. There is some room for sentiment sometimes.
