Saturday's Madrid Derby was certainly not one for the ages from an Atletico Madrid perspective. Antoine Griezmann's "Derby Fever" boots didn't quite do the trick, and Real Madrid's 3-0 win in the last ever derby at the Vicente Calderon (as if) sent a message to Diego Simeone, his players, and Colchonero Chat.

Martin Connolly is the Assistant Editor of Into the Calderon and the guest on this edition of the program. Martin and Jeremy discuss whether Atletico's form is down to the fixture list or whether the more open style is the culprit. The duo debates what Atleti's identity now truly is - if it remains "Cholismo" or if it is "Atletico 2.0." Also, with 26 weeks to go, is LaLiga out of reach for the third year in a row?

PSV Eindhoven pay a visit to the Calderon on Wednesday in a game that Atletico need to get back in track. Jeremy and Martin talk about who could be rotated in to the XI for that game and take your questions.
