FourFourTwo looks back at the weekend just gone in Southeast Asian football and discovers lessons to be learned, stars re-born and the impending return of a major player...
1. Smeltz stars to start his Malaysian sojourn.
New Zealand star Shane Smeltz has scored goals everywhere he has gone in a long and varied career and the same seems to be happening with Kedah.
It was a fine strike too: a swivel and a shot to earn three points to put the Red Hawks into fourth place.
It may just be a good start and nothing more, but the record of the 34-year-old, the second highest goalscorer in the history of Australia's A-League, suggests that the goals will come at a reasonably regular rate.
Smeltz’s signing shows there is value in the market for players from overseas. Clubs that do their homework will be rewarded.
