Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat.

Rob joins Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) for a Q&A-dominated episode, where the podders discuss potential arrivals (Nikola Kalinić, Gelson Martins), squad balance, Jan Oblak versus Thibaut Courtois and more. Rob and Jeremy also take time to reminisce, as Gabi has left Atlético Madrid — they pick their favorite Gabi moment and reveal the likely successor(s) to the captaincy. In addition, the guys preview the fascinating Uruguay-France clash and eulogize Spain following their disastrous World Cup exit to host nation Russia.

A new bonus pod centering on Atlético’s finances will be available next week on
