Primus deal called off/Ljungberg rumours

Primus deal called off/Ljungberg rumours

The News is reporting this morning that Linvoy Primus' loan move to Charlton has been called off!

For several days reports all over t'internet - including officially with Charlton - have been saying his loan move was a season long one, yet Pompey said nothing...

Finally after the Manyoo game on Monday Harry Redknapp said that the loan was only until the end of the year, not the end of the season and he was not having it any other way.

Still nothing official has been said throughout the whole ordeal, which I find disappointing but I am pleased that we will not allow him to leave for the season. A short term loan until Christmas would be ideal though.

The deal might be resurrected, but at the moment Linvoy is not going anywhere. Although like I say I do honestly think it would be in everyone's best interests for this as he needs 1st team football at the moment so a short term loan seems the obvious solution.

==========

Also, reports in today's Mirror are saying that we are considering making a move for free agent Freddie Ljungberg...

A few years ago I would have been delighted by such a move, but I would hope we are not, and most probably doubt, we would be interested now - you do not have a £6m contract paid up for no reason do you, and this is what recently happened with him at West Ham!

Ok, lets look at it this way if we could get him in on a pay as you play basis then we would have nothing to lose, but I could not see him being open to this so I would suggest we steer clear of the Swede to be honest.

Reports also say that Villa, Everton and Blackburn want him, they are welcome to him if you ask me...

Thoughts on all as always please guys!

Let's hope the Linvoy "non move" is a good one; I'd hate to see the guy not be able to play regular football because of an internal c*ck up somewhere along the line

Linvoy does need to get some games under his belt but i would imagine we would want a short term for the loan i.e. have him back when the European games kick off, even if just for cover...

Freddie the Fag is very injury prone & damned expensive. Can't see this happening. As for Linvoy, I hope 4 his sake he knows what's going on?

not sure about Freddie, strange one with his contract at west ham, i dont think the guy had an attitude problem so it must have been purely down to fitness... id say at best give him a contract until the end of the season and see how it goes... he has been about as injury prone as Glen Little over the last few seasons but would obviously command a much higher wage...

Agree with southport that Linvoy desperately needs to play games and a short loan spell would be the ideal answer but finding a host club may be the problem as they would rather have a settled team. Freddie is 31 now and probably passed his best but that is the type of player HR revels with.

Done Deal - Walsall compensated for Lalkovic

Milan Lalkovic has become Pompey's sixth signing of the summer. A compensation agreement with Walsall was agreed that has seen the former Chelsea winger join the Blues.

Solving that goalie quandary

I'm not sure our problem with finding a 'regular' no.1 last season was behind our failure to gain promotion from league two was it? Clearly it didn't help mind.

Pompey's attacking intent

Something Pompey (attacking intent) will look to show next season to get out of league two once and for all. Smith came in from Swindon last week but Cookie wants another striker.
