What a legend Linvoy is

What a legend Linvoy is

Most players cannot wait to get back into the team at any cost, not Linvoy Primus he is happy to wait his turn, as he aims to get back in the side on merit - this just proves what a great fella Primus is.

As he told the Pompey Site he wants to get back into the team because he deserves too, he does not want individual errors to see him back in at the expense of someone else. Even if it means him staying out of the side, he would rather the team performed well as a unit.

Once the opportunity arises for Primus I have no doubt that he will, as he always does, grab it with both hands and will then be very difficult to leave out again.

He is inching ever closer to being available for a return, as he came through a further 80 minutes against Arsenal on Monday, playing at Underhill, the home of Barnet - where his professional career really took off.

To be honest at this precise moment in time he cannot get back into the starting 11 for me soon enough, if it means someone else missing out then so be it.

My own thinking would be, although it means playing one of Primus or Sylvain Distin slightly out of position I would want to see these two and Sol Campbell all in the back four, probably with Distin at left back in place of Hermann Hreidarsson, who is not convincing me to be honest.

I love Linvoy, he's a proper nice bloke and all round good guy, and lets be honest our defence looks a whole lot surer with him in it

The fella's a veritable Pompey legend! Written off many times only to prove his worth to everybody time and again. Seems to play better very year, and was absolutely superb alongside Campbell last season.

welcome back mate ;-) we were lost without you...haha...

back on topic, and no disregard to the men harry brought into left back, i would still rather see ou 3 central defenders playing than have one of dimji or herman at left back.
06/09/2007 19:23:00
im back, but now im off out - but i promised i will be back again later {not24-48 hrs later either} and will change the poll, as you must be sick of it by now :) on topic again, hermann isnt doing it for me, i would prefer djimi though, but out of the lot i would prefer to see optimus alongside sol and distin at left back.

Welcome back! Glad you fixed problem. Linvoy for England - anyone read the book?
