I thought I would create a new thread after the Tristan conversation on the La Liga season thread.
Here is a pic of another legend from our town La Algaba. José Rodríguez Domínguez (Rodri) played for Sevilla from 1964-74. He was the starting goalkeeper for the bulk of those seasons. The Peña Sevillista here in our town is named after him and he is frequently there hanging out the the old man contingent. Super friendly guy who waved at us whenever he sees us out in town.
That’s a whole case on itself. Of what got to me, he threatened his cousin and in a leaked audio clip wanted to stab the guy in a different place than the knee where it ended up. He nationalised to become russian as well, to escape further persecution I think.
My choice would be Dario Silva. Complete with his theatrical rolling about everytime he went down.
I actually met him once at a hotel in Sevilla pre one of our european games and he is a genuine nice guy.He told me that he was there to promote a charity he was involved in to help disabled kids to enjoy different sports.
I would love to meet Andres Palop and talk over his time at Sevilla and Bayer Leverkusen, and exchange goalkeeping stories. I actually got a few likes off of the man himself when I used to have Twitter.
