Colchonero Chat 129: Concerns from Celta

Atlético’s 2-0 loss in Vigo on Saturday may be more significant than you think. With Rob Walker.

Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat. Rob’s weekly appearance on the program comes in the wake of Atlético Madrid’s dispiriting, deflating 2-0 loss at Celta Vigo on Saturday evening.

Rob and Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) register their concerns about Atlético’s insipid display at Balaídos — where they had won each of the previous three seasons by a 7-0 aggregate scoreline. The podders wonder whether Diego Simeone should drop captain Diego Godín after the international break, why Simeone persisted with an ill-fitting 4-4-2 and if Atleti’s league title hopes have already taken a fatal hit.
