Euan McTear (@emctear) is a Spanish football journalist and author. He is also the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat.

Euan and Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) dive into Atlético Madrid’s International Champions Cup fixtures in Singapore, which featured a penalty shootout win over Arsenal and a last-gasp loss to Paris Saint-Germain. The podders discuss the solid performances put in by Atlético’s canteranos — most notably 17-year-old Victor Mollejo, who became the first rojiblanco born in the 21st century to score a goal.

The guys then move on to transfer talk — including the recently-completed Šime Vrsaljko/Santiago Arias swap — and answer listener questions on Giovanni Simeone, the best formation for 2018/19, replacing Gabi’s dressing room presence and more.
