Linvoy In, Powell secure

As Linvoy Primus returns to the Valley, we hear that a real Charlton defensive legend has secured a six month contract at Leicester.

Most Charlton supporters won't remember watching Primus winning man of the match on his debut in front of the ITV cameras, he only made three more appearances for the Addicks, before being released. the boy has added a few muscles since then and grown his dread locks. Linvoy is in the esteemed company of Danny Shittu and Michael Turner, Central Defenders released by Curbs who got to the Prem. So far Linvoy has been the most successful, having had an extended stay in the Prem until now. Three months with us could see him contribute in a major way to a defence that lacked solidity last season. We had no spine in a spineless team, at least till Christmas we have Weaver -- Hudson / Primus - Bailey - Gray / Varney, suddenly we look strong straight down the middle, although strength in depth is questionable.

Having recovered from a season long injury, Linvoy is coming home to get fit for the second half of the Prem season, but while he is here I am sure the likes of Youga and Moutakill will benefit from his experience, whilst Hudson will be more able to focus on his own game and not worry about his central defensive partner. Hopefully we will see Linvoy on saturday up in Preston, otherwise it will be a couple of weeks before the Addicks are in action again.

Good luck Chrissie and good luck Linvoy
