Colchonero Chat is back, and this time, with a game to talk about!

Jeremy is joined by Spanish football writer and podcaster Jack Benson (@Jack_Benson1) for this edition of the program. Jack and Jeremy analyze Atlético Madrid’s 0-0 draw at Toluca on Tuesday and wonder if it’s the end for Luciano Vietto - as well as the beginning for left back prospect Sergi González. They also touch on Augusto’s return before shifting focus toward the 2017/18 Liga Santander fixture list and whether or not Atlético will start strong with three straight away games.

This is followed by a can’t-miss debate on all the changes taking place with respect to Atlético’s image and identity.

The guys also talk about Jorge Mendes’ Portuguese boy band at Wolves, which just got a new addition in Diogo Jota. They also analyze other loan deals and the latest in the drawn-out Diego Costa saga.
