Linvoy to return, but for how long?

Linvoy Primus, a very familiar face to all Pompey fans, will be making his return to the club next week - but for how long will he be back for?

His loan with Charlton official ends after their meeting with Derby on Monday, so he will then return to Pompey looking to add to his 219 1st team appearances to date.

To call him a 'popular defender' would be an understatement, he is on a par with most of us - well, bar the fact that he probably earns more in a week than most of us would in a year, but does not flaunt it and always remembers where he has come from and just how important we are to the club - and is a footballer that we all respect and admire, and I dare say would all love to see pull on the blue shirt again...

He will have couple of weeks before the January transfer window opens, and a few during it, to convince Tony Adams that he is worth keeping for the remainder of the season - and indeed his contract as it currently stands, as this ends in the summer.

Primus has fought back from a career threatening injury, so after a year out he just wants to play - in an ideal world he, and we, would love that to be at Pompey, but if that cannot be the case then I am sure that no one would begrudge him the chance to move on and nor would anyone stand in his way with a free transfer being granted to him if needed I am sure.

To be honest I have not seen him playing for Charlton, but have heard pretty decent reports on his performances for them, but could he make the step-up to top-flight football again? Even if he could would he play enough football to want to stay with the club for what may well be the final 6-months of his footballing career as a player...

My heart says he will stay, and even play a bit here and there again proving that he is more than worth his place in the side but in all honesty my head tells me his Pompey days are over and he will move on permanently come the turn of the year - either way, and sentiment does not have a place in football anymore, it would be fantastic if he could be given that chance to say what will most likely be a farewell - as a player - to the Pompey fans.

I guess Primus has been written off several times in the past, only to come back, so nothing with this fantastic man surprises me so we can never say never...

Even if he plays out the rest of the season on loan, Linvoy should come back here as a player/coach for next year. What a role model he would make for all the promising youngsters we have at Pompey If he's going , I'm sure we would all like a proper chance to say goodbye.Sentiment should play a part in this for once- what about an appearance in the cup tie against Bristol City?

Driving home For Christmas as Chris Rea sang. Really hope that Linvoy will play for Pompey again he would get a fantastic reception just as he did when he lifted the FA Cup!! Career wise probably loan again til the end of the season and then??
eastneydave
let's get him back from loan at least so he'll be able for a cameo in the FA cup final...
pompeycarpet
We gotta play him on Boxing Day - he'll be due for a goal or two...2004, 2006, 2008?

Smooth song Dave, as for Linvoy can he prove us all wrong yet again, odds are getting higher,but you never could say no.

Squee your right, & it was West ham last time too "On yer head Linvoy".
pompeyyong
He just doesn't look right in that Charlton Shirt does he !.. One more appearance will do me ...even if a sentimental one as 'monkey' suggests... Would be good if he lead the reigning cup holders out at Fratton against Bristol City

I nelieve all good teams start from a good defence and for me linvoy complemented and indeed frequently covered for my hero Sol; a therein lies my problem. I have to accept my main man is not really up to it so does that leave linvoy out, I don't think so Sylvan is very capable of getting caught out of position and we need defensive cover for the promising Younis, give him a year contract I think.
russellm
we need to keep at least until after the christmas period. he wont let us down. id his fit i'd play him along side distin. i think campbell will leave in january so we need linvoy
robertpog
Wasn't it a wonderful moment when he lifted the cup and got that big cheer. The way we've been defending lately, we need all the good defenders we can get! He's pushed his way back into the team before, i wouldn't put it past him to do it again.
tracyc
I personally think he would be the man to come in and take charge of the youth team or reserves. I am sure he is a Mr Motivator when he gets going. Please let him have at least one more game in a Pompey shirt!
sneakay
Whatever happens he is an all time hero at Pompey. I'd love to see him involved with community & the kids.
