Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat. He stops by to talk with Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) about Atlético Madrid’s bounceback win over Las Palmas in LaLiga on Sunday.

Following the midweek Copa del Rey elimination, Atlético had to respond — and that’s just what they did, notching a 3-0 win thanks to a dominant second half. Jeremy and Rob discuss the successful return of “Torriezmann,” as evidenced by golazos from Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres. The guys converse about Diego Simeone getting his subs right, Juanfran’s best game of the season, José Giménez displacing Stefan Savić again and Koke’s worrying dip in form.

The podders also take Patreon and Twitter questions before previewing (to the best of their abilites) the upcoming partidazo against third-place Valencia on Super Bowl Sunday.
