Andrew Gaffney (@GaffneyVLC) is a Spanish football journalist and Yahoo Sports UK’s LaLiga writer. He is also the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, where he joins cold-stricken host Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) to recount Atlético Madrid’s 1-0 triumph over Valencia on Sunday.
Ángel Correa brought A Stadium Called Wanda to life by punctuating an intense, physical encounter with an extraordinary 25-yard strike. Jeremy and Andrew reflect on his season to this point, his journey to Madrid and whether he is a suitable replacement should Antoine Griezmann go this summer. The podders also talk about Diego Godín’s missing teeth, Griezmann shushing his own supporters, Marcelino’s approach against Diego Simeone and Atlético carving out a nice home in second place.
The guys also analyze all the action from a wet weekend in LaLiga, including a hotly-contested Catalan derby, Real Madrid dropping more points and a Europe League race that’s worth monitoring.
