Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat. He joins Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) to debate Atlético Madrid’s 2-0 win over Real Sociedad on Saturday night.
Rob and Jeremy break down how Atlético got back on the winning path with goals from Diego Godín and Filipe Luís. They talk about a strong first league start for Santiago Arias, the Rodri-Koke central midfield pair and Atleti’s first half dominance. In addition, they discuss holdover issues such as dry spells from Diego Simeone’s expensive forwards, the coach’s reluctant substitutions and why that first half dominance could not translate into more chances.
The podders also preview Tuesday’s Copa del Rey Round of 32 clash with Catalan side Sant Andreu and the changes Simeone is prepared to make. Plus, Colchonero Chat Amigos get some surprising news.
