Primus happy to wait for his chance

Primus happy to wait for his chance

Linvoy Primus has been written off before, but each time he has come back - and with him now being 'available' again he will face this fight again, but this is a fight he is up for, but is also a fight - as he told the Pompey Site - that he is willing to be patient in to win: 'I'm available, but I don't expect to walk straight back in. It doesn't happen like that. Noe has been patient and is waiting in the wings too.

'Sol and Sylvain are very strong and impressive - I can imagine people saying similar things when they looked at me and Sol last year, particularly with the way we started last season.

'I know it's going to be a long season and there are going to be opportunities to play, and that's what I've got to wait for'.

As said he has faced a battle almost year in year out but his belief in his own ability and willingness to fight for a place has always served him well so this is something that he is used to.

To be honest the challenge he faces this season is his toughest ever, but Sol Campbell and/or Sylvain Distin will without doubt pick up injuries or suspensions along the way so he will get a chance again, so when he is back in he will be hard to get back out again - assuming Harry Redknapp plays fair, which for the benefit of the team and sentimental feelings aside I would hope he would.

Yep Primus faces his biggest challenge yet, but you would be foolish to write him off! I know I will not be doing this - but then again I never have.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

agreed, Linvoy may only have two goals for last season but he is solid and disciplined i am confident that there is no way and he would keep getting caught out of position like the defense did against reading

'Only' two goals last season Russelm - Wasn't that double what Solid managed ? I too think he'll get his chance but it is gonna get thougher for him, the competition is stonger and he is now 34 (I've checked this one Rug!) but when he does. whenever it is we know he will give a solid performance and never intenionally let us down -He is a class act.

Linvoy never fails to put a performance in, he will get his chance i am sure, and if he gets two goals again i would be happy with that plus two from Glen, Sol, Sylvain, Hermman, Lauren and any other defenders we have. Have you read his book yet lads?
