Rob Walker (@rwalk03) is an Into the Calderón staff writer and the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat. Rob and Into the Calderón site manager Jeremy Beren break down Atlético Madrid’s eventful 2-2 draw against Liga Santander minnows Girona on Saturday evening.
The podders wonder whether or not Antoine Griezmann was rightfully sent off and whether or not it was a coincidence that Atlético improved after his departure. They pore over Diego Simeone’s new 3-4-3 formation, the impressive Ángel Correa, the enigmatic José Giménez, and if an opening weekend draw could actually spell doom for Atleti’s title hopes, slim as they may be.
Then, a brief discussion of Spanish media reports on Atlético and Chelsea agreeing a transfer fee for forward Diego Costa. Rob tries to determine which shirt number Costa will wear upon his return while Jeremy struggles with the English language.
