In a recent site poll, only 8% of our readers voted that they expect relegation next year under new manager Michael Laudrup.
There has been a lot of discussion lately amongst the supporters about whether or not the new boss can continue Brendan Rodgers' success in the Premier League.
Sarguable confident that we'll have another impressive year in the top flight, partly due to us not being so predictable, what with Laudrup making some tactical changes to the team. Other fans meanwhile are reserving judgement and wonder if Laudrup can step up to be successful in a League he doesn't know much about. According to the poll though, it doesn't look like many are pessimistic about the new man in charge.
30% are very optimistic, and expect us to improve on last season's 11th place finish, while a further 4% believe we'll equal that achievement.
36% expect a 'decent bottom half finish' which would be a respectable achievement for Laudrup, as it's the main aim will simply to avoid relegation. 22% expect us to avoid the bottom three, just about in 17th place.
Are you optimistic about Laudrup's first season in charge in 2012/2013? Let us know your thoughts on the forum here
In our new poll, we'd like to know your thoughts on Laudrup's plans to cut the squad to an ideal number of 22 or 23 players. That would mean getting rid of at least 11 or 12 players, if not more if he wants to make a few signings before the end of August.
