  1. I remember Txopo as a child, and his aurea as a great goalkeeper. Of others, I stay with Arconada. The task of these surveys is, who has seen Zamora or Ramallets? How to compare?

  2. If Ablanedo II leaves for 3 zamora trophies, should abel leave, with a world unbeaten record and 3 Copas del Rey and a Spanish Super Cup to his credit. Also Liaño could be worthy of belonging to this, list with the record for least goals conceded (18 next to Oblak) and also of course, Molina is missing from this list, with 1 league 2 Copa del Rey and a Spanish Super Cup to his credit.

  3. Compare 3 zamoras del “Gatu” Ablanendo with an unbeatable streak is comparing winning 3 Leagues with winning a Copa del Rey. Do not be delusional please. And it is not the same to win them in a Sporting (super modest team) that in an At. from Madrid. Say it all. Not only what suits them.

    1. The conclusion I draw, is that in Spain there have always been great goalkeepers, might disagree with some of the ones here, and name others , but all these , definitely , great goalkeepers, of course always in the shadow of the great ARKONADA, one level above all !!! regards

  4. Another historic Athletic Bilbao player is undoubtedly on the list of missing players., This is Gregorio Blasco, with garters, glasses, Zamora and international trophies with the Spanish team
