Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat. He joins the program for the first of two season preview podcasts, an in-depth look at each first-team player at Atlético Madrid, what each player’s role is and how we can expect each player to perform that particular role in 2017/18.

Part I discusses Atlético’s goalkeepers, defenders and forwards. Jeremy and Rob debate the best partner for Diego Godín, take a closer look at the right back competition between Juanfran and Šime Vrsaljko and wonder which Atleti forward will prove the best foil for Antoine Griezmann.

The podders also offer a fond farewell to Atleti’s unbeaten preseason and analyze the latest dispatches from Brazil, where Diego Costa’s transfer saga rages on.
