Could be (should be) back to his best this year. Should have been last year but wasn't. I'll vote for 2013, but his best isn't good enough.
I really liked him during 2007-2009 and he was decent in 2010

But in 2011, he lost time to great climbers like Rojas and completely stopped caring about anything but LBL and Tour.
In 2012 he wasn't even trying at all during season and we all know how his season ended (If you want to ride slowly during a cat 3 climb and willingly drop yourself from peloton, dont waste a spot in the team, just train at your home)

Edit: I just remembered that in 2011 he attacked at AGR, still my point stands

For example Im his big fan of Alberto(read a signature below) but I voted for 2013.Since he crashed in June I want him to retutn to the best.He is very talented and he is great climber(he is near Alberto,maybe Froome),thats why I want him to return.to see great performances in mountains and drama in July.To say 18 people voted him cos they are Contador fan is bull**** since me,Hitch,Carols,Flo,Afrank etc.want him to comeback.

andy comes from one of the smallest countries on earth so his fan base is never going to compete with any other rider , it seems to me this is a major reason of why he gets so much hatred on here because he is basically a boy from nowhere with huge natural talent that could possibly take a lot of glory away from the so called superstar .
Like Flo said,he has big fan basis outside of Lux...If he is better than Alberto next year he should win.He can take the glory,I dont mind if he will be the best.
To bolded: He is not 'so called',he is a superstar...If he isnt who is ?

Hold on, man. Year ago I registered here, upholding the same views. I started to discuss all GT stuff with Contador fans and I was instantly accused of trolling and all that jazz. Some of them really consider only their view point correct. But even among them there a lot of guys who are opened for a constructive discussion.

for Andy to show his best next year, he MUST do the following:

*He MUST WIN RACES-not just show up for them, but show off talent.
*He MUST keep his mouth shut & let his legs & results do the talking.

You're not alone. It's a fact. If you said the slightest thing against Contador, you're immediately labeled as 'troll' and abused by his fans.
