Chennaiyin FC have long been known as slow starters, but even head coach John Gregory would be surprised at the poor output...

In the final, they dominated for vast swathes. They kept the ball well. They moved the ball well. They...

"Where are the marquee signings?" I can hear you yell. "Where are the Berbatovs and the Forlans and the Del Pieros?"

Hopefully the answer to all that is: "Consigned to history."

The ISL seems to have moved away from the idea that signing a big, big, name -- irrespective of current form or state of physical fitness -- guarantees success and is moving towards a more holistic, 'let's buy people that our sides actually need' philosophy that most sensible footballing entities ought to follow.

ATK

Been the league's heavyweights, but last season needs erasing fast.

Under Coppell, expect more discipline, but who will fetch goals?


Bengaluru FC

Best for most part on debut, before slipping in final.

The nucleus remaining the same, can they maintain standard throughout?
