We’ve heard from the journalists and other sites on where they think Leeds United will finish the 2011/12 season and the general consensus appears to be mid-table. But are the fans any more optimistic? On the eve of the new season, we thought a poll was in order to find out. 

With Luciano Becchio and Davide Somma set to miss the start of the season and Bradley Johnson, Neil Kilkenny and Kasper Schmeichel all parting ways with the club, the starting line-up in Southampton tomorrow will be a lot different from the one that ended the 2010/11 with a win over QPR.

The transfer window has been a largely uneventful one for The Whites. Despite four new signings made by Simon Grayson, none of them have really captured the fans imagination quite like Kasper Schmeichel did last season.

And the bookies seem to be feeding off the Elland Road silence and are offering surprisingly long odds on The Whites being promoted;

Winners Promoted
Ladbrokes 20/1 11/2
William Hill 22/1 5/1
Coral 20/1 6/1

Are the bookies right? Are Leeds United rank outsiders for promotion this season, or do you think we’ve been underestimated and will be able to climb that final hurdle back to the Premier League?

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
