A Brilliant Spanish Football Documentary: Six Dreams

Sunday, 17th March, 2019

I can’t believe I forgot to write about one of my favourite shows on Amazon which I watched at the back end of last year. I’m talking about the Spanish football documentary, Six Dreams.

As the name suggests, it follows the lives of 6 people involved in in the Spanish Premier League, La Liga, including 3 footballers. The main characters in the film are Iñaki Williams, Saúl Niñguez, Quique Cárcel, Amaia Gorostiza, Andrés Guardado and Eduardo Berizzo.

Iñaki Williams is a young player at Athletic Bilbao, while Saúl is another young Spanish player, at Atletico Madrid, and Guardado is playing for Real Betis. Off the field, Eduardo Berizzo is the manager of Sevilla, Quique Cárcel is the sporting director of Girona, and Amaia Gorostiza is the president of Eibar.

It goes into the daily lives of all of the personalities, but not only their lives, the lives of the people around them. It’s an excellent insight into absolutely everything to do with Spanish football, from being a player to what goes on behind the scenes, you see it all.

There’s plenty of supporting characters too, since the film documents the daily lives of everyone. Saúl is an Atletico player, so you regularly see other players, including Fernando Torres, as well as seeing players from other teams too. The same story goes for Williams and Guardado, seeing players from Athletic and Betis respectively.

One of the best things about the series is the insight into the smaller clubs, namely Eibar and Girona. When you think of football in Spain, everyone thinks about Barcelona and Real Madrid, the two big powerhouses of the league. Not many people know much about Eibar, but this series features Amaia Gorostiza, the president, so you get to see what happens at the club, learn a little bit about the history, and see what the club is about.

The same story goes for Girona. The little club from Catalunya which made their debut season in the top flight last season. It’s really interesting to see these smaller clubs and how they operate, learning about their players and what happens behind closed doors.

This series is in Spanish, so you’ll need subtitles, but it’s worth watching for any football fan. After watching this, I feel a little bit of affection for little Eibar and Girona. They seem to be two football clubs up against it, and finished 9th and 10th in the league, well above expectations.

If you liked watching the Man City All Or Nothing series, you’ll probably like this too. I hope they do a second series, it would be great to watch another.
