Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is an Into the Calderón staff writer and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, in which the podders offer in-depth player previews on each Atlético Madrid midfielder and wrap up the short Season Preview series.

Jeremy and Rob discuss whether or not Nico Gaitán can still be a key contributor to Atlético, a breakout for Thomas Partey, Augusto Fernández’s return, the Koke quandary and lots more. The guys also dish out their predictions for the season; one podder believes Atleti are in line for a return to the Champions League final, while the other is not so sure.
