Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this Monday edition of Colchonero Chat. He joins to analyze Atlético Madrid’s 1-1 draw at Villarreal on Saturday, which was an encouraging performance despite the late equalizer from the visitors. Rob and Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) break down great displays from Atlético’s attackers, rue missed chances and debate whether Atleti’s unbeaten start — which now has reached 10 weeks, with Atleti trailing in just seven percent of the time — is overrated or underrated.
The guys also discuss the possibility that Simeone is losing faith in his substitutes — he made just one against Villarreal, 15 minutes from time — and debate why Atlético seem to lack strategy and/or energy at the end of games before previewing Qarabag’s Champions League visit.
