Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is a staff writer at Into the Calderón and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat. He joins Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren (@JBBeren) in a breakdown of Atlético Madrid’s season opener, a victory over Getafe.
Atlético’s new era began with a hard-earned three points, which lead Rob and Jeremy into a discussion about what’s new and different about this 1-0 win. The podders, of course, pore over that João Félix run and the promising connection between Kieran Trippier and goalscorer Álvaro Morata. They debate the new, stricter guidelines centered on dangerous tackles from behind — which were prominent all weekend in LaLiga and got Getafe forward Jorge Molina sent off in the first half.
In addition, the guys talk about the Rodrigo Moreno latest and recap the action from matchday one before looking (somewhat far) ahead to Sunday’s trip to Butarque, where unlucky Leganés await.
