Carlo Valladares (@C_V_News) is an Atlético Madrid supporter and a tactics writer at various places on the internet. He also serves as the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, wherein he tries to explain what is going wrong at Atlético following a 1-1 draw with third-division Elche in the Copa del Rey Round of 32 first leg on Wednesday. Despite the promising prospect of a home second leg and solid performances in midfield and beyond, Carlo and Jeremy Beren discuss Luciano Vietto’s failures in front of goal and the team-wide anxiety that has come from Atlético’s lack of production.
The podders banter about Diego Costa vs. Antoine Griezmann, rumors of Yannick Carrasco’s departure, whether Fernando Torres is done at the top level and offer a preview Villarreal’s visit to the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday.
