Rob Walker is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and a recent graduate of Kenyon College in Ohio. He is also the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, where he joins Jeremy Beren to reflect one last time on an Atlético Madrid match from the 2018/19 season.
Rob and Jeremy touch on Atlético’s friendly loss to Israeli Premier League side Beitar Jerusalem and how surprisingly unsurprising it was to see Diego Costa sustain another injury in the match. The podders then turn to Saturday’s events at the Ciutat de València, which saw 10-man Atleti fight back from a 2-0 deficit to grab a draw against Levante thanks to 18-year-old B team striker Sergio Camello.
The guys talk about Juanfran’s final game and his legacy, plus the patented “Cholo consistency” in addition to what to do with Ángel Correa. Finally, they start the discussion on Antoine Griezmann’s impending transfer and how he will be remembered.
