The Indian Super League is back, once again in a bio-bubble in Goa, but with teams who are certainly stronger than last season and also wiser when it comes to playing a season in neutral venues behind closed doors.
The transfer activity, like in the last few campaigns, has been heavy in the off-season, with the likes of ATK Mohun Bagan and Mumbai City FC having a net spend in excess of Rs 45 million.
However, some clubs have also found smarter ways of operating with NorthEast United, FC Goa and Hyderabad FC making profits in the transfer market despite making some significant signings.
As the eighth season of the ISL nears, here’s a look at every club’s squad, their transfer activity and our bird’s-eye-view verdict on how the teams compare ahead of the big kick-off on November 19.
