What are the factors that will determine where the 2016 S.League will end up? Read on to find out…
1. Will the LionsXII alumni decide the league?
When the FA Cup-winning LionsXII team disbanded, local S.League teams had a field day snapping them up.
Tampines Rovers welcomed eight players on board, followed closely by Hougang United (five) and Geylang International (four).
If the theory that former LionsXII players are really much better than their S.League peers hold true, where the title looks to be headed appears pretty obvious.
No better season than this one to prove this as fact or fiction.
