Jack Benson (@Jack_Benson1) is a Spanish football writer and former podcaster. He is also the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, where he and Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren discuss Atlético Madrid’s litany of issues in the aftermath of a 1-1 draw with Qarabag at the Wanda Metropolitano on Tuesday. The podders declare Cholismo’s death and try to map a new way forward for Atlético on and off the pitch — through possible Europa League qualification and possible arrivals/departures over the next two transfer windows.
The guys also talk about Fernando Torres’ increasingly likely January exit and preview the weekend’s clash in Galicia, as Deportivo La Coruña welcome Atleti for what could be a tricky encounter.
