    It is about time to start discussion for the 2012 - 2013 season.

    My perdiction based on my gut, with not a whole lot of thought.
    1. FC Basel - yes they lost a lot, but they were so much better than the rest of the league last season.
    2. YB - The team underachieved last season. I think they do better this one.
    3. FC Luzern - The added matches from the Europa League (unless they crash out like they did a few years ago) might add some strain to the squad.
    4. FC Sion - most of the team is back, they should do well.
    5. Servette - I would love to see some more additions to the club, if not, they could be lower, and squad size plus Europa Cup could be a problem.
    6. FC Zurich - they will be better this season.
    7. FC Thun - Takes a step back this season.
    8. GCZ - Escapes relegation again, I think Adil breaks out this year.
    9. FCSG - They could be the suprise of the season.
    10. LS - Why? Departure of key players and manager do not spell success.

    My quick prediction
    1. FC Basel - still the clear nr. 1. They lose quite a few points in the first half of the season due to concentration on the Champions League. They also will have a few players missing due to the Olympics and will have to integrate new players.
    2. YB - They have underacheived serveral seasons now. The squad is almost as good as Basel's. Maybe it's a big too big. Too many unhappy players sitting on the bench or in the stadium. They need a coach which is giving them confidence.
    3. FC Sion - without the lack of stability and continuity, i.e. with a calmer version on CC they could compete with Basel
    4. FC Lucerne - they always start well in the season while the others lose points due to european matches. Good coach and quite stable environment. So, they could take the lead again in the first half of the season.
    5. Servette - but far behind Lucerne... if they can't improve the squad they rather might fight against relegation next season, but I'm optimistic
    6. FC Zurich - they lost too many players. Last season they looked as the main contenders but had a miserable season. Canepa is fed up and doesn't want to invest much this season
    7. FC Thun - expect a good start in the season and then struggling towards the end of the season
    8. FCSG - fans are not happy with the coach, but they get quite good results
    9. GCZ - Cabanas, Smiljanic and Calla gone, but they didn't play much anyway. Now, the others can't hide behind them any more. Maybe that helps GC to move up. But I'm sceptic.
    10. LS - the second half of the last season was surprisingly well. But I don't believe they can keep it up.

    Some pre-season freandlies
    FT Zurich 3 - 2 Biel-Bienne

    FT SC Bruhl 1 - 7 St. Gallen

    FT Grasshoppers 1 - 3 Wil


    I know that nothing should be made from these results, but Wil defeating GCZ is a little surprise.

    it's funny that Servette has to play 7 out of the first 9 matches at 1:45pm
    Basel has 0 matches at 1:45pm

    I wonder if that was by choice, or were they assigned. I also noticed that Servette tended to play more sunday matches at home than saturdays last year. Of the 9 rounds, 3 are home and only one is a Saturday.

    it was probably chosen/demanded so by Teleclub/Swisscom for the tv programming. having said that for them Servette seems to be the least attractive SL club.

    That is really a strange looking jersey. It reminds me of cotton candy.

    90% of women are not attracted to men who wear pink shirts. Ironically, 90% of men who wear pink shirts are not attracted to women!

    Sort of a surprise. Now if all of the Italian players join Sion, they could really challenge Basel.
