Title: Robert Primus Thread
Post by: jumbonut$ on September 28, 2009, 03:33:20 PM
First of all I would like to thank our Young Socawarriors for their valiant attempt in today's game; good showing fellas!!
 
After watching the last two games, there is one player that really stands out to me. Not taking anything away from the rest of our young warriors, but I think Robert Primus has done exceptionally well in his role for the team. He is a big physical centre back that has alot going for him. This guy reads the game well, covers alot of ground (in a short time), is dominant in the air, tackles the ball well and is a decent passer of the ball from the back. I think given the right environment, this guy could truly become a fixture in our senior team and even go on to play in one of the world's top leagues.

WHAT IS YOUR ASSESSMENT OF THIS PLAYER?

Agreed.

To his credit, Terry Fenwick been pointin out dis yute fuh a while now too.

I agree with this assessment.  If I remember I think Primus was called for training with the National Setup when d dentist was in charge.  But yes very solid player, could easily be assimilated into our national team.

aye, i know this post is about optimus prime but his partner in crime is riding the pine. i hope to see him in action in the paraguay game as well as grosvenor, curtis gonzales, williams, and one of the other goalies or maybe both, one in the first half and the other in the second. david looks good as well.

Agreed,the Gonzales fella stood out to me earlier this year qualifications, ah was real impressed with him and even said so on a previous thread. Although not very imposing, runs off the ball well,reads the game and cleans up everything at the back. I would like to see him in the Paraguay game!

I was looking at the game on ATDHE and had to switch feeds a couple time. Both sets of English commentators singled him out as outstanding. They rated Jake but said that his crosses let him down this game.

Primus completes move to Kazakhstani Premier league.
By: Shaun Fuentes (TTFF Press).


Trinidad and Tobago defender Robert Primus has signed a three-year contract with Kazakhstani Premier League club FC Aktobe.

Primus who had been on trial in Turkey for the past month where several European clubs had been present holding screening sessions with scouts on hand, was offered the deal and had no hesitation in agreeing.

San Juan Jabloteh head coach Terry Fenwick confirmed on Friday that Jabloteh had reached an agreement to let Primus go after a couple of deals had previously been turned down.

Primus local handler Dion Sosa was also delighted, saying Were very happy and relieved that Robert is finally getting the chance to play in Europe.

Ever since his showing at the Under 20 World Cup in 2009, there have been a few clubs knocking on the doors but we faced some obstacles and finally weve overcome that. Hes really looking forward to the experience out there now, Sosa said.

Primus is scheduled back home on Tuesday before returning to join the club on a full time basis. Its a good opportunity for me to experience European football and to play at a higher level.

Im thankful for the opportunity and hopefully I can continue to develop and lift my game which in the long run will see me become a better player to contribute to the national team and getting to another World Cup, Primus told TTFF Media.

FC Aktobe are four time champions of the Kazakhstani Premier League and made it to the first qualifying round of the European Champions League in 2006/2007. They also qualified for the UEFA Cup the following season.

They also reached a similar phase in the 2010/2011 Champions League and lost in the playoff of the 2010/2011 Europa League to  AZ Alkmaar.

The 20-year-old Primus has three senior international appearances after making his debut in a 1-0 win over Panama in March, 2009. He was also a member of the T&t Under 17 team that appeared at the 2007 FIFA Under 17 World Cup in South Korea.

"qualifying BS" against the likes of AZ Alkmaar.  Your closing statement also corresponds to the quote in mine.  Men need to recognize that this glass half full instead ah looking at it as half empty.  Men have to get in where they fit in.. not where we think or would like them to fit in.

The adaptation to a foreign country will help him mature as a player and a man so in the long run it will be beneficial to him. He's a good player why Latapy was overlooking him I will never know but I wish him well... we will need him for 2014 big time.

Aktobe coach welcomes Primus.
By: Shuan Fuentes (TTFF).


FC Aktobe head coach Vladamir Mukhanov says he expects to see the benefits of new signing Robert Primus as the new Kazakhstani Premier League kicks into gear in the coming weeks.

Primus made his debut for the club earlier this month and Mukhanov spoke this week about the reason for signing the former San Juan Jabloteh player alongside Juan Jose Bezares, a midfielder from Spanish side Sevilla.

We signed them because of their qualities as players and people, not because they are exotic, Mukhanov told UEFA.com. We are interested in good players, but they need to fit into our group, they have to be good people too.

We play attacking football but we have worked on our defensive shortcomings too. Lets see how we get on, Mukhanov added. The 20-year-old Primus is hoping to cement a starting spot in the team.

So far Im settling in well. The climate is different but Im enjoying it. Its a lot of hard work but this is all part of it.

Weve been working hard to ensure we have the best possible start to the season, Primus added. Primus Aktobe top the Kazakhstan Premier League after two matches with six points.

He also saw action in their 3-2 win over Irtysh on Saturday. Primus made his debut for T&T during the latter stages of the 2010 World Cup qualifiers and appeared at the 2007 Fifa Under 17 World Cup and 2009 Fifa Under 20 World Cup in Egypt.

Nice recovery and tackle by Primus.  The striker took long to control there.

I dunno know the ref didn't call a penalty for the other team there.  Lucky for Aktobe.

Primus looked good from what I saw. Composed and alert to danger.

People have that desperate state of mind because of the status of our own Pro league. If our pro league was atleast average some fans will not be so happy for players to leave Trini to go ANYWHERE. The pro league is not developing much quality players for the national team and it has shown in recent years. That is why our local players are struggling against caribbean opposition..

Primus returns for Aktobe next month.
By: Shaun Fuentes.


Defender Robert Primus is expected to return to playing after being sidelined for seven months with a serious knee injury that required reconstructive surgery.

Primus became a regular in the starting team of Khazakhstan Premier club FC Aktobe before sustaining the injury which forced him to miss T&T's 2014 World Cup campaign and the 2012 Olympic campaign. Primus is currently back in training following the lay off.

I expect to be playing again by June. I am doing more fitness and ball work at the moment. Ive been in the gym doing strength work also and a lot of therapy in the sea and pool, Primus said on Monday.

Primus has until the end of 2013 remaining on his contract and intends to make up for loss time. He maintains that the fear of injury again will not deter him from making it in the European arena. I am mindful of injury but its not going to affect my game.

Im really working towards being even stronger than I was before. I have been on the sidelines for a long while now and this has me really anxious to get back out there and make a good impression, added the ex-San Juan Jabloteh player who played for T&T at the Under-17 and Under-20 World Cup in 2007 and 2009.

It was really hard having to read about and see highlights of the World Cup qualifiers and the Olympic qualifiers and not be able to do anything or try to even help the boys. I dont think theres ever been a more frustrating period for me.

But with all of that, I am thankful to God for helping me recover and be able to play the game at a decent level again. A lot of persons would love this opportunity and even though it has been a tough journey, I am ever grateful that I can play in Europe again, Primus stated.

Primus back home after suffering meniscus injury.
By Shaun Fuentes.


With just five matches left in the season and his club FC Aktobe three points ahead of its second placed rivals in the Kazakhstan Premier League, defender Robert Primus has been sidelined with an injury to his right meniscus.

The player, who enjoyed two solid performances for the T&T Senior team in Saudi Arabia last month, was on the receiving end of a tackle from an opposing player two weeks ago and was forced to withdraw from playing. He is currently back in Trinidad and is scheduled to journey to the United States to undergo surgery and is likely to be out for up for up to six weeks.

It was unfortunate because were three points ahead of the second placed team and we have five games to go in the season. I was hoping to finish this season without an injury and see us win the title, Primus said.

I had this same injury on the left side before and it kept me out for a year. That was tough to go through but the doctors say that once I operate again, my recovery should go for just over a month. Im really hoping that it doesnt keep me away from the game for too long, Primus said.

A meniscus is a type of cartilage that exists in ones knee joint. There are two menisci in the knee; each rests between the thigh bone (femur) and shin bone (tibia). The meniscus is made of tough cartilage and conforms to the surfaces of the bones upon which they rest.

Primus begins rehab following ACL surgery.
By Shaun Fuentes (TTFA).


Trinidad and Tobago senior team defender Robert Primus has commenced rehab after undergoing Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction at the Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center on November 15th.

Primus, who turned 23 five days before the operation, suffered the injury while on duty a few weeks ago with his Kazakhstan club FC Aktobe. It ruled him out of the Trinidad and Tobago friendlies against New Zealand and Jamaica. He had previously assisted in two goals against Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates.

The TTFA offered support to Primus by assisting with his travel to the United States and organizing with TTFA doctor Mario John who is based at the Virginia Commonwealth University. The procedure was overseen by a team led by Dr Seth Cheatham and assisted by John. Both Primus and John wore I Support Akeem T-shirts during the surgery.

According to John, who was also the team doctor for T&T at the 2007 FIFA Under 17 World Cup,  Primus is likely to return to playing in six months, in time for his clubs UEFA CUP qualifiers and he will be monitored in Trinidad by Dr Anyl Goopesingh over such period.

Primus is hopeful of a successful recovery and return to the game.

Its going well so far. The main thing for me was getting the surgery done and Im very thankful to the team of doctors in Virginia Dr Cheatham and Dr John and the people at TTFA who offered their assistance, Primus said.

The operation was successful and I started rehab on Friday, he added

By Shaun Fuentes (TTFA).


European-based defender Robert Primus will not be in the national team for the upcoming friendlies against Argentina and Iran but the former U-20 player is likely to be available for the Concacaf Gold Cup qualifying campaign later this year.

Primus has resumed training with FC Aktobe in Kazakhstan having been sidelined for seven months after undergoing Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction at the Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center on November 15.

Im happy to be back training again with the club. Im jogging and I expect to be playing again by June, Primus said.

Its been a bit frustrating not being able to play and seeing all the football going on. But God is good and Im thankful that Ive recovered and Ill have that chance to play again. Even though I wont be there, I want to wish the boys well against Argentina and Iran.

Primus last played for T&T in the 3-1 win over Saudi Arabia last September.

Primus returns after ACL surgeries.
By Walter Alibey (Guardian).


After three ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) surgeries, defender Robert Primus returns to the national team under Englishman Terry Fenwick.

Primus, who plays professionally for Bengaluru United in the Hero I-League in India, was one of many players to have been called by Fenwick ahead of next year's CONCACAF Gold and FIFA World Cup Qualifiers in March.  

The 30-year-old defender, who represented T&T at the Under-17 and U-20 levels, said it feels great to be back in the T&T team as it is the dream of every player to represent their country.

With the country's national teams being given the okay to resume training for international competition, Primus said it is very important to be back in training since all other teams have been preparing.

Only last week Fenwick said they are behind in training as all sporting activities were halted after the government closed all its sporting facilities as a precautionary measure against the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

However, the national footballers are still in limbo as to their participation in the upcoming events. T&T are awaiting news as to whether the sport's world governing body-FIFA will lift the suspension on this country after T&T was suspended for a violation of FIFA's Statutes by the T&T Football Association (TTFA) under then-president William Wallace.

Preparations continue as T&T, for the CONCACAF Gold Cup, is set to face Montserrat in the preliminary rounds.  

Primus said he has learnt a lot from Fenwick, having played under him at T&T Pro League outfit San Juan Jabloteh at both the youth and senior levels, and he was also exposed to international competitions through the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Club Championship before he entered the national team, saying he is grateful to the man who took over from previous coach, Dennis Lawrence.

The defender has had a tough road to travel in his short career, which has been plagued by injuries. Sharing his experience on how he overcame that to be back on the national team, Primus said he was strong mentally.

"It's mental toughness. It all comes down to mental toughness, the way you think while you're injured, the amount of work you put in while you're injured and during recovery too. I never once thought about giving up, I just continued working hard, so I am here today," said Primus.

"I did three ACL surgeries, one on each leg and then a re-rupture again but it's all good now, thanks to God.

"Injuries are a part of football, it's just how you deal with it and the people you have around you, the doctors, your family. You need your family the most when you're injured. My advice is to never give up, keep working and you will reach where you want to be, just don't give up."

National team recall for FC Bengaluru United's Robert Primus
By Sandeep Menon (Deccan Herald)


It's been a glorious few days for Robert Primus, the stuff dreams are made of. He is floating on a cloud.

On Monday, playing the BDFA Super Division match for FC Bengaluru United, the tall centre back scored against their title rivals Bengaluru FC 'B' to set his team up for a 3-2 win, shifting the balance of the league in their favour. Three days later, he scored the goal that gave the team their first silverware in their three-year history. Amidst all this, he also earned a call-back to the Trinidad and Tobago national team.

"I feel good. I came in for the last five games so, it felt good to come in and make my presence (felt) for the team," he said on Thursday before shifting the focus of conversation to the national team call-up.

"It's an honour to represent your country. I've been there in the past but for a while I haven't been - like 6-7 years. So it feels good to get the call back for the World Cup qualifier and try to help my country qualify."

Primus, who turned out for Churchill Brothers last season before shifting to FCBU ahead of the I-League qualifier at the end of last year, last played for Trinidad and Tobago in 2013 in a friendly in Saudi Arabia.

"I will leave on March 17, the games are on March 25 (Guyana) and 28 (Puerto Rico)," he said.

It's not very often you see a player playing in the 2nd Division league club - essentially the third division of Indian football - get a national team call-up. Primus understands that but is happy that his choice to move down a division has paid off with performances on the field.

"(The performance at the club has helped) for sure, we train hard and every day we put in the work. (Moving from Churchill) was all based on timing. There was a lockdown and football was not happening. I got the call from the coaches to play the 2nd Division and I didn't hesitate. I know this is second division but we are training like at the top level. The coaches really push us and I'm fit," he said

Primus delighted for Soca Warriors recall.
By Jelani Beckles (T&T Newsday).


NATIONAL defender Robert Primus, who last represented T&T in 2013, said he is delighted to reunite with players he grew up with and is anticipating T&T's FIFA World Cup qualifier against Guyana in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, next Thursday.

Primus, 30, played seven matches for T&T between 2009 and 2013. The national team arrived in Dominican Republic on Thursday. Speaking to the TT Football Association media officer Shaun Fuentes, Primus said, "I feel very excited to be with the guys. It has been awhile, but I am here and ready to get to work."

Primus, who is based in India, was not surprised to get the call. He said, "I was in the training. I was always around, I just left for club duties so in my mind I always think positive so I believe that I would have gotten the call."

Primus is relishing the opportunity to wear the national colours again. "Playing back then with the likes of (Andre) Boucaud, (Radanfah) Abu Bakr, (Willis) Plaza. It feels good actually being with those guys again. It is guys you can put your trust in on and off the field as well."

Speaking about playing again with Sheldon Bateau and Khaleem Hyland, he said, "These are guys I played with since Under-13, Under-14 so we have a really good relationship me, Khaleem, Sheldon. Sheldon is like my brother, so we have a really good relationship. It feels good to be with them again."

Primus said the next few days are key. "These are the important times now...we got to get our heads together, get our playing style together and just feel off each other energy going into this game."

Head coach Terry Fenwick said, "The camaraderie has been fantastic. The pool of players that we have got are very positive, very vibrant. I am loving it."

Fenwick also got the chance to look at the venue where the match will be held. "It is not the best, but it is not as bad as the (Queen's Park) Savannah and that is where all our players have all been brought up. They have been brought up on community grounds and I think that will be a massive benefit to us."

He added, "We are tightening everything up and as I said the camaraderie on the inside now (is great). I can feel the passion within the group and everything is moving in the right direction. I am enjoying it."
