Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, where he kicks off a season-in-review by discussing how Atlético Madrid’s goalkeepers and defenders played during the 2017/18 season.
Rob is flanked by Into the Calderón manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) as the podders reflect on how Atlético finished as LaLiga’s best defense once again. They break down Jan Oblak’s emergence as arguably Europe’s best goalkeeper, how José Giménez and Lucas Hernández became the future of Atleti’s defense and what lies ahead for Diego Simeone’s veteran full backs. They ask whether any improvements are necessary to a back line that conceded just 22 goals in LaLiga.
The guys also talk about human meme Theo Hernández, the Super Cup in Estonia against Real Madrid and Atlético Femenino gunning for a domestic double.
