Argentina's most successful football club, River Plate is about so much more than just the beautiful game. A pillar of the sport, scouring the nation for the greatest talent, this is an institution, a club whose stadium carries the most fitting of names.
So where do you begin with such history? Well, that was the challenge for the These Football Times team, and it started with a stunning Javier Arrés cover. Between that and page 160 - representing our biggest magazine yet - you'll find the stories that matter, from the legends of yesteryear to the heroes of today. It's been a rocky road to dominance, but what a story it is.
