Golden Oldies Know How To Score
One reason why it is very difficult for young strikers to make an impression in Indonesia is that the old guard are bloody hard to shift. Players like Rahmat Affandi, Samsul Arief and Yongki Aribowo seem to be eternal bench material or get shifted from club to club while the old buggers hog the big teams.
Have a look at the top scorers in Indonesia at the moment.
Keith Kayamba (Sriwijaya) 15 goals in 15 games. Age 39 and pictured flat on his back
Safee Sali (Pelita Jaya) 12 goals in 15 games. Age 28
Bambang Pamungkas (Persija) 11 goals in 17 games. Age 31
Christian Gonzales (Persisam) 10 goals in 10 games. Age 36
