Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat. He joins the show for a wide-ranging conversation on the World Cup, transfers and Atlético Madrid forwards.
Rob and Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) have lots to get through, and they start with quick hitters on Antoine Griezmann’s extension, José Giménez’s new contract and Thomas Lemar’s imminent revival before recapping the exploits of Atlético players at the 2018 World Cup. Then, the podders analyze in full Diego Simeone’s five forwards: the departed Luciano Vietto, the departing Fernando Torres, the mercurial Kévin Gameiro, the beastly Diego Costa and the talismanic Antoine Griezmann.
