V-League 2010 Transfers: Top and Flop

Unexpected good signings

1. Danny David Mrwanda (Dong Tam Long An)
Forward Danny Mrwanda, who has earned 22 caps with Tanzania national team, is definitely one of most successful signings in this season. He has speed, good movement, decent finishing and can play well as winger. Accompanied by Antonio Carlos and Tshamala Kabanga, Danny became the last piece of a super attacking trio that helps his club earn most points in the second phase of V-league 2010.

2. Timothy Anjembe (Hoa Phat)
Joining Hoa Phat from Dong Thap, Timothy was unlucky to have his leg broken just a month before the season started. However, the 23-year-old striker recovered quickly and scored as many as 14 goals to help his club avoid relegation.

3. Rajko Vidovic (SLNA)
Despite his old age, Rajko has proved his quality in his first season in Vietnam. The 35-year-old found the net 11 times this season and became main attacker of his club.

4. Sunday Ibeji (Dong Thap)
When Aniekan left Dong Thap at the end of last season, the club was worried about its weakened midfield. However, another Nigerian player has replaced his position extremely well. The new player is Sunday Ibeji and Dong Thap fans must be very pleased with his performance.

5. Nicolas Hernandez (Da Nang)
The Argentine player was a very good addition to Da Nang squad. His nice passes and high work rate became an important link between midfielders and forwards.

6. Cassiano Henrique (Hoa Phat)
Brazilian defender Cassiano is another successful signing of promoted side Hoa Phat. He has strength, good anticipation and decision. A solid defender in front of Hoa Phat's goal.

7. Nguyen Hoang Helio (SLNA)
Joining from Binh Duong, naturalized defender Helio added a lot to SLNA's defense line.

Simply should have been better...

1. Elenildo de Jesus (Binh Duong):
V-League 2006 top scorer turned out to be a weak and slow striker, not to mention his poor finishing. Spending most of his time on the bench, Elenildo failed to make any impact when getting chance to play.

2. Lazaro de Souza (Hai Phong)
Top scorer of last season was a bench-warmer this year. Definitely not good enough.

3. Bui Quang Huy (Hai Phong)
Vietnam international goalie Bui Quang Huy came to Hai Phong with high expectation but a lot of his silly mistakes have destroyed the hope.

4. Lee Nguyen (Binh Duong)
Can't say his performances were bad but certainly not up to expectation and his big paycheck. Poor fitness and out of form, he often started his games from the bench.

5. Le Tostao (Thanh Hoa)
Zimbabwe-born striker has full of experience of playing in Vietnam but what he showed was simply not good enough.

6. Mauro Santos (SLNA, Thanh Hoa)
Although Mauro was given a lot of chances at SLNA as well as Thanh Hoa, he often disappointed everyone.
