Miranda's absence gives Gimenez his big chance at Atletico

Diego Simeone was presented with the Miguel Munoz Award for the best coach at the Marca Football Awards.

The news that Joao Miranda has been struck down by injury would have seemed like a catastrophe for Atletico Madrid last season. His partnership with Diego Godin was, among others, one of the main reasons that Los Rojiblancos won their first league title in 18 years. He was a key component of a back line that conceded only 26 goals in a 38-game season, which was no small feat.

However, the hamstring injury that the Brazilian picked up against Austria may, in the long run, prove to be for the best...

Assessing Atletico Madrid's new arrivals

Diego Simeone was presented with the Miguel Munoz Award for the best coach at the Marca Football Awards.

After they were crowned La Liga champions last May, there was an air of inevitability that change was on the horizon for Atletico Madrid. The likes of Thibaut Courtois, Filipe Luis, Diego Costa, David Villa and company all moved on, meaning manager Diego Simeone had a rebuilding job on his hands.

While it is still early days, Atletico have had 11 La Liga games and the league table is starting to take shape. Therefore the latest international break of the season gives us a chance to reflect on...

Key questions facing Simeone as winter window draws near

Diego Simeone was presented with the Miguel Munoz Award for the best coach at the Marca Football Awards.

As Atletico Madrid slumped to what was only their second league defeat this season (2-1 away to Real Sociedad on Saturday), the international break probably could not have come at a better time for Diego Simeone and his backroom staff. They have a lot of fat to chew, and some big decisions need to be made. Here, from a Rojiblanco point of view, are just some of the questions that the Vicente Calderon faithful are asking themselves:

Who is going to be the first choice left back: Siqueira or Ansaldi?

Cards galore as Atletico Madrid falter against Real Sociedad

Diego Simeone couldn't inspire Atletico Madrid to any sort of heights against Real Sociedad.

Once again the prospect of international football has been Atletico Madrid's downfall, with Los Rojiblancos this time succumbing 2-1 away to lowly Real Sociedad on Sunday evening.

Unlike last time (the 3-1 horror show against Valencia), this time it was not (entirely) of the side's own doing, with some extremely questionable refereeing decisions helping the home side gain only their second victory of the season; both of which have come against the two Madrid sides.

Atletico Madrid have chance to tinker in La Liga match with Real Sociedad

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti doesn't believe David Moyes will be joining Real Sociedad any time soon.
The magical Koke did his thing again in Atleti's Champions League win vs. Malmo.

Atletico Madrid travel to San Sebastian to take on Real Sociedad this weekend on a run of five successive victories, dating back to the return from the last international break. Los Rojiblancos will be hoping that their away trip going into this month's set of various qualifying fixtures and friendlies is more successful than their 3-1 horror show in Valencia in the beginning of October.

In principle, there should be no such problems. La Real are on a horrible run, and sit second from bottom with...
