Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, in which he tries to make sense of Atlético Madrid's goalless draw at Leganés on Saturday. He wonders why Diego Simeone went with a back three, why he went away from it so early and why he settled on playing for the draw. The podders debate how Simeone's rotation game has played out so far this season — while Atlético remain unbeaten in LaLiga, not everything has gone so smoothly, and a big test awaits against Barcelona following the international break.
The guys also look back on Atlético's midweek defeat to Chelsea and wonder if Atleti's qualification fate remains in their hands, while also taking a moment to discuss Atleti's ladies' team, which is preparing to take on Wolfsburg in the Women's Champions League this week.
