Rob Walker (@Trauppin) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón. He is the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, and he joins Jeremy to analyze Atlético’s thrilling come-from-behind victory over Celta Vigo on Sunday. It was a game with a bit of everything: a Fernando Torres chilena, a Fernando Torres missed penalty, Atleti making errors and getting ripped apart on the counter...and still finding a way to win via two excellent goals in the final five minutes. Jeremy and Rob wonder if this triumph will come to define a league season that has been so inconsistent from one week to the next.

It was announced Monday that the Copa del Rey final will return to the Vicente Calderón on May 27, but this does not please a lot of Atlético fans; in fact, very few. The podders discuss the controversy surrounding what very well may be the final game at the Calderón.
