In the mag: Atletico Madrid, botched pranks, Lampard, Bosnia's barmy army...

In the new issue of the world’s greatest football magazine - available in print and in a specially-designed-for-iPad version - we speak to the men of the moment in the Spanish capital. No, not Bale, Ronaldo & Co., the the other ones flying higher in La Liga - even without last season's star man Radamel Falcao. We travel to Spain to discover more about what makes the Rojiblancos tick, the inside story of their new revolution and the key men behind it.

We sit down with goal-getters Diego Costa and David Villa, the prodigious Koke and talismanic boss Diego Simeone (y'know, Beckham's bezzie), as well as the other key figures in the capital side's blossoming set-up.
