Euan McTear (@emctear) is an author and journalist whose work can be seen at Marca, These Football Times, Tifo Football and LaLiga Lowdown. He’s also the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, where he joins Into the Calderón manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) and finds stuff to talk about despite being knee-deep in the international break.
Jeremy and Euan talk about José Giménez’s latest injury on international before backtracking to analyze Friday’s entertaining Germany-Spain friendly, in which Koke, Saúl and Diego Costa all partook. The podders also talk about Antoine Griezmann’s future, the Paulo Dybala story and the impossible Lautaro Martínez deal.
Finally, the guys explore the latest debate and the petition circulating around changing Atlético Madrid’s nine-month-old badge. Jeremy and Euan wonder whether the club will relent and listen to supporter concerns or whether they will keep it moving with the new look.
