Peeling latex paint

While removing wall paper the paint on the wall began to pull away. In areas it is coming off in large pieces with the green primer with it. But in other sections the paint will not budge. I have blotches of paint all over the wall. Is there a way to possibly paint and cover these areas or do they have to be stripped to the dry wall.

Peeling latex paint

Once you have gotten all the wallpaper and glue off, I usuallylike to prime with oil. Then do as much patching as necessary. Sand. Now you can prime with latex primer and topcoat. All primers and paints being quality of course.
