There was once a time when Anderlecht could count themselves amongst the kings of Europe. It was glorious. Between Van Himst, Rensenbrink, Olsen, Arnesen, Scifo, Vercauteren and Goethals, and indeed so many more, some of football's finest talents passed through the doors of the Constant Vanden Stock stadium.
Continental glory followed, as did unprecedented success at home that saw Anderlecht fully live up to their royal billing. They were the epitome of cool.
Unquestionably one of the most enjoyable magazines we've made - few clubs are as interesting as the Belgians - Anderlecht gave us rare access and insight into the history and present of the Brussels giants, including a special interview with Vincent Kompany where he opens up on his career and philosophy of the game. It's nothing short of a spectacular story.
