Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat. He returns to snowy Ohio to talk about Atlético Madrid’s 1-0 win in the rain at Eibar, a match which saw Kévin Gameiro and Antoine Griezmann link up for the only goal in the first half. That goal serves as the starting point for this week’s episode.
Rob and Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) discuss the divisive Frenchman’s role at Atlético moving forward, his efficient return in front of goal and he could be a necessary presence as Atleti challenge on two (maybe three?) fronts.
Jeremy and Rob analyze masterful performances from Lucas Hernández and José Giménez in the shorthanded rojiblanco defense, ponder the league title race and get you set for the midweek Copa clash with out-of-form Sevilla.
