Kiyan Sobhani (@KiyanSo) is the chief editor of SB Nation blog Managing Madrid and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat. He joins Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) to analyze the year that was in the capital.

Jeremy and Kiyan dissect the good and bad of 2018 for both Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid. The podders discuss the best moments of 2018 for both sides — which one a combined three trophies in seven months — in addition to the current status of Simeone’s and Solari’s teams and reasons to be concerned in the weeks ahead. They ponder possible January transfer activity for both sides and who could leave the Santiago Bernabéu and the Wanda Metropolitano. Finally, they make bold predictions for 2019.
