'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Transformed a must have, surely?

I have only just had a chance to listen to The Quay's football hour from Wednesday night, the night when Linvoy Primus was the guest. Although we all know what a great fella he is, listening to him for an hour only just increased my admiration for him.

Unfortunately I have never had a chance to meet Primus but I would love the chance to do so at some point, if I could then I would be thrilled to put some questions to him for this very site, which I am sure he would answer.

To be honest I am not really much of a book reader but his new book Transformed is most definitely a book that I will not only buy, but will also read, not just let it gather dust as I have been guilty of with others that I have bought before.

I would presume that a fair few of us out there have already got this book - those that have is it as good a read as I can imagine it would be?

I will be honest, I am not religious at all but I will be buying my copy from www.linvoyprimus.com, not just to get the copy signed - which he said he would do for those buying from his site - but also to see a donation go towards the Faith & Football that Primus is a part of.

Got mine signed by Linvoy last week and I did promise a review but have not read it all yet. Like you Rug not a great book reader. I will give you all a clue though - 'Pray up Pompey'

Just ordered a copy of the book, it will be interesting to see how it all changed around for a guy who appeared to be a journeyman defender going to Norwich City, to our best and most consistent performer for the last couple of sesons. He deserves all his success and i hope he is soon fully recovered from his injury, as we need him.

Havnt got the book yet, but have met Linvoy on several occasions and can only say that first hand he is simply the best. Lovely man and engages the kids in conversation also.

I met him at a P/S/Friendly at Torquay couple of seasons ago, had a chat..i had been a singer songwriter playing spiritual songs around churches for 10 or 15 years at the time ended up meeting him after the following plymouth friendly and gave him a copy of my CD. He could nt have liked it he never wrote to me having asked for my address...In fact I dont like the cd much myself..nice bloke though

Great player (Legend in fact), admire what he does and even admire the fact that he's found the root to his motivation.... I might pick up from the library on day... but not really my cup of tea if based on religious beliefs ... Wish him well with it though

Did you see his interview on Sky? Typical Pompey, we have a club chaplin, we have regular worship before a game but they have to pray in the laundry room and Linvoy even pointed out the dryer's have to be turned off so they can hear each other!

Nothing that goes on at the club suprises anyone, i have heard that at times there are 10 plus people in the room. Kanu ought to go in there and say a little prayer after that penalty miss!!
