Salman Isa - Glory Days

Glory Days

Ghuloom is known for his hardworking and tireless displays on the wing, but as Talal Yousif who was deployed as a more offensive player for Al Riffa left for Kuwait SC, Riyadh Al Thawadi decided to push Ghuloom upfield and play him as a Forward. This decision proved to be vital as Ghuloom scored 15 goals leaving him as the league top scorer. Ghuloom's amazing form also helped Al Riffa to the 2004-2005 league championship and the Crown Prince Cup. In which Ghuloom scored in the final. Ghuloom's best for the national team came in the 2004 Gulf Arabian Cup in Qatar. Ghuloom scored and amazing goal in the historic 3-0 win over Bahrain's fierce rivals and neighbors the more famous Saudi Arabia. Ghuloom's hardworking ethics paid off as Bahrain again qualified for the semi finals although they were sadly knocked out by Oman. Nevertheless, Bahrain still finished in third place. After the 2004-2005 season Ghuloom's amazing displays prompted Al Arabi of Qatar, where fellow national team player and captain Mohamed Salmeen plays, to sign Ghuloom from then Bahraini champions Al Riffa. At Al Riffa Ghuloom was a cult hero and fans referred to him as "AL JANAH AL TAER" which means the flying wing, for his speady runs through the wings. At Al Arabi, Ghuloom continued to display good form although there he was being used mostly as a defender or wing back. Till today Salman Isa is defending the colors of Al-Arabi and is the captain of the club.
