85% of our readers voted that they are happy with Paulo Sousa being appointed as Swansea City's new manager.
Only 5% are not happy, with the remaining 10% unsure.
The 38 year-old emerged as a late favourite to take over from Roberto Martinez while it seemed that Gus Poyet was the clear favourite to take the job.
The bookmakers slashed their odds on Sousa to take over and the following day it was reported that he had agreed to sign a 3-year deal.
While some fans had their doubts about Sousa because of his spell at QPR last season, most of them seem to be upbeat now about the new man in charge after he impressed in front of the media this week.
Sousa had an indifferent spell at Loftus Road, winning only 7 of the 26 games he was in charge of the London club. In contrast though, our form during the same period was very similar - far too many draws and not enough wins.
Joining him at Swansea City will be assistant Bruno Oliveira who he worked at QPR. Coach John Harbin is also expected to join the management team, he also worked at QPR with Sousa as a performance manager.
In our new poll, we'd like to know where you think we'll finish next season in the Championship.
Both Sousa and Oliveira realise that next season will be a lot harder than last season for us. After promotion from League One, we were an unknown quantity in the Championship and we surprised a lot of people with our quality and unique style of play. It'll be a lot of different next year though, there are a lot of strong teams all competing for promotion to the Premiership. Newcastle United, Middlebrough and West Brom join us following their relegations while the likes of Ipswich, Nottingham Forest, Sheffield United and Reading will be looking for a stronger season.
Can Sousa improve on last season's 8th place finish and get us into the play-offs? Or do you think he'll struggle in his opening year?
