    ReplyDelete
  9. adtebu has made a couple of appearances for Nam Dinh. Yet his club is standing at the bottom of the table.

    ReplyDelete
  10. very soon he's going to turn the table round and nam dinh will be on their winning ways, through GOD who strengthens him. watch out for his potentials.

    ReplyDelete
  11. watch out for his potentials cos things are going to change for the better for nam dinh nowadays.

    ReplyDelete
  12. i have been waiting for your response. Hope everything is ok?

    ReplyDelete
  13. i'm afraid his club is still experiencing hard time. Nam Dinh has just lost 0-5 to HAGL. However, Nam Dinh made its way to semi-final of national cup.

    ReplyDelete
  14. what do you think is really the problem affecting his(ADTEBU LAWSON) team. Because it seems like they have not won a single match this season.

    ReplyDelete
  15. nam dinh is full of young players. a lot of important players left the club last season.
    i heard Nam Dinh is looking for addition for the next phase. hopefully they can get out of crisis soon.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Thank you Eric, i hope they really get out of this crisis as soon as possible. But please have you really taken notice of his potentials? If yes what do you think of him and if no kindly do for me. thanks a bunch.

    ReplyDelete
  17. honestly i didnt have many chances to watch Nam Dinh's matches as most of them were not broadcast on TV. The match reports that I read sometimes mention him but there was not much info.

    i think Adtebu will have more chances to show his potential when the whole squad improves its performance. If not, it's hard for any individual to show his best.

    ReplyDelete
  18. i hope they do the necessary recruitments to help them in the next phase of the season, by the way thank you very much for your support.

    ReplyDelete

  23. hi. Adtebu is playing pretty solid i think. he is frequently used in Nam Dinh starting squad. hopefully he can help Nam Dinh get out of dangerous zone soon.

    by the way, do you have more info on him such as age, past clubs, etc?

    ReplyDelete
  24. HI, Eric thanks for the message. I dont reaaly have much info on adtebu because i am just a fun of him but will try to get you any info i lay my hands on concerning what you have asked.
