Primus off to Charlton on loan

Primus off to Charlton on loan

Linvoy Primus is set to return to his former club Charlton... Who once dismissed him early in his career saying he was not good enough!

The fans favourite is closing in on a return from his slight groin injury - having battled back from a career threatening knee injury, and when fit is said to be off to the Valley for a spell on loan. I guess this must be a side issue of the move that has seen Jerome Thomas come to Pompey?

How long this loan will be for is not known, but it is only going to be a loan according to his agent, and is said to only be happening to allow him to play some 1st team football and get himself up to pace before returning and challenging for a place at Fratton.

Harry Redknapp has recently gone on the record as saying he believes 'Pompey should give Linvoy a job for life', so lets hope that this loan will be just that, a loan and he can return in a month, or several months time having got himself fully fit...

When you think about it this is not a bad move really is it? 1st team football will be better for him, and give him a better chance of getting himself up to speed than reserve football would. Maybe we could let him stay with Charlton until January, as this will give him the chance to get plenty of games under his belt. We do not need to worry about him getting cup tied either as they are already out of the league cup!


Also, The News is today reporting that Dave Nugent has turned down the advances of Wigan, with it said they were the latest club to show an interest in him. Once again the reason cited is his desire to 'stay and challenge for a 1st team spot'...

The paper is also reporting that Djimi Traore is still interesting Hull. He rejected a move to them earlier in the summer; with it claimed the offer was £2m! We would have bitten fingers, hands, wrist and arms off is this was the case; it is down to Djimi to accept that a move away is best for him now.

I just don't get Nugent surely playing regular first team football is gonna give him a better chance of breaking into Pompey's first team.. why not go to Hull.. score a few goals the come back and knock down Harry's door and demand to be played.,... He could score a hat full in the reserves but what do es that really prove ?? . I'm really losing patience with Nugent now.. As for Linvoy I said a long time ago that we'll never see him play for Pompey in the Prem again.. to me this looks a bit last chance saloon.. but at least he's prepared to go somewhere and 'fight' rather than do what I've just criticized Nugent for doing

There are some players here who need their heads examined. Nugent and D Traore that is, Nugent needs to score goals and Djimi probably will be lucky to play for the reserves. As for Linvoy he needs games to get fit and I have no doubt he will be back.

100% agree with you Chix, I can't really add to it...sorry

Good luck to Linvoy, we hope to see him in a blue shirt again. As for Nugent, if he wants to stay he has to cut it at this level, that's if he get's a chance to?

I can see the sense in Linvoy going to Charlton to get fit for a month or two but now the press are saying it is a season long loan :o(

Yep, it'll be fantastic to see the great man go and get some first team action at Charlton. Will we ever see him again in Pompey blue?? Heart says YES, head says no. Good luck Linvoy, you are the man!

Chix & Dave great comments, but sadly Dave with the signing of Kaboul & A Traore I feel Chix may be right that Linvoy may have played his last prem game for Pompey, then he has proved people wrong in the past who write him off, may be a bridge to far.

Have to agree, that barring appearances in League Cup maybe, or sentimental 'last game of the season' (like Yoshi coming on as sub against Bradford, last game of promotion season), can't see Linvoy breaking into the First XI again... ...having said that, wouldn't dispair if it IS a season long loan (haven't seen anything official as yet), as I would be confident that we would shove a recall clause into the loan deal, so in the event of injuries, Linvoy would return! The only he is likely to get in the side to be honest.

Fair play Linvoy - again you demonstrate what true football passion is all about. So many players should take note of this.
