Primus thanks us for the support

Primus thanks us for the support

I know this has already been covered in one angle today, but since the earlier article saying how Linvoy Primus had undergone knee surgery at Dr Richard Steadman's clinic in America he has spoken to the Pompey site.

His words have only made me want him to not only make a full recovery even more - if that was even possible, as I did not want many things to happen more than this anyway - but also to get that chance to show everyone at Pompey once again just how good he is.

Not only was the surgery said to have been a complete success, which you would expect with him having been treated by the very best - and Steadman is the best of the best - he has already started his rehabilitation.

Initially it was understood that he would be in America for 3 weeks, but he will be flying back a week today and everyone - as we already had - will be hoping he can make a full and speedy recovery.

Such is the measure of the man he has already thanked us for our support with his comments: 'I'd like to thank all the Pompey fans who have given me fantastic support over the last few months and aim to repay their faith in me by getting back to my very best'.

I for one have no doubt that he will give his all to repay the faith that has been shown in him, I just hope that he will get the chance to play - which surely he will over the course of the season. When he does, even if he does not make his 20 games needed for the new contract to automatically trigger I am certain he will play well enough to earn this deal anyway.

Now let battle commence for the umpteenth time in his Pompey career, scrap that his career full stop for him to defy the odds once again - come on Linvoy you can do it!

I hope that we waive the 20 game trigger straight away to repay his loyalty to us. He is a great bloke and i wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him on the pitch very soon.

spot on Owenspompey - i know 'loyalty' and particularly 'sentimentalilty' have little or no part in football these days but surely the club will drop - at the very least half - the 20 games he needs for that assured new contract... what a top man linvoy is, always finds time for others as he had the fans immediately after surgery.

Not sure we should keep him on and pay him just for the sake of it fellas, it's a nice sentiment but we do have a wage bill to worry about and he is getting on a bit..... I just hope we get the opportunity to see him play at Fratton Park at least once again just so we can show our appreciation of everything he has done for the club - It speaks volumes that one of the first things he does after surgery is thank the fans - Linvoy really is a man of the people - I just wish football in general had a few more...

if optimus can prove his fitness then he would be well worth keeping on - if anything the fella gets better with age so that doesnt concern me... as i say so long as he can prove his fitness and will be able to give 100% when asked i would want him kept as long as possible.

Nobody is suggesting we pay him for nothing, all i meant was that to insist that the 20 game trigger we enforced in order for him to stay would be wrong, he deserves every opportuntiy to prove his fitness.

It's difficult for me as a Hetro to say I love this guy, but it's about the closest it gets. Having met him personally I can say he is one hell of a guy, they don't come much better. I wish him nothing but the best.

Good luck on getting back to full fitness. I think he will find it very hard to get back in though once fit.
