David Cartlidge (@davidjaca) is a Spanish football journalist, scout and podcaster. He is also the guest on this edition of Colchonero Chat, wherein he discusses a rampant Atlético Madrid’s five-star performance against Las Palmas on Saturday.
Central to the 5-1 win was Diego Simeone’s decision to field a young, energetic lineup. David and Jeremy break down a few key performances, including the efforts of Ángel Correa, Luciano Vietto, Lucas Hernández and episode namesake Thomas Partey. They also ponder if Simeone will really buy in to a youth revolution and an Atlético in transition.
The podders then talk transfers and transfer policy — and why Atlético’s has been criticized, particularly this summer. Finally, the guys analyze Champions League Group C, which pits Atleti against Chelsea, AS Roma and Qarabag.
