    Listening to the comments from Mbye and Lichaa on Fox, I am impressed with their newfound enthusiasm to play expansive football, with the aim of scoring points.
    Wherever we finish in 2018, if the team plays exciting football I'll be satisfied. But, I want a top four finish anyway.

    Bulldogs won’t be finishing 13th. That’s a harsh assessment. The Dogs have a very strong forward pack which happens to include the Australian front rowers & a decent backrow.
    My concern is as always the 6 and 7. If we were talking about Kieren Foran circa 2011-14, those concerns would be eliminated. Foran is the big key and the biggest question mark. I just don’t think he will return to those halcyon days.
    I’m forecasting the Bulldogs to be in finals reckoning until about round 24 to 25. I’m thinking a 9th to 11th finish.

    We have a new coach, new CEO, new board with a new chairperson, new rep players (Foran, Woods). Never seen so much new at the club. After the last few years, its welcome.

    And one big thing nobody else has mentioned.....

    ITS CHINESE YEAR OF THE DOG!
    1.5 billion chinese people cannot be wrong.

    Articles such as this one are the very reason gambling on NRL should never be allowed.

    You can Judge results going by team lists and talent, but you can’t judge results when it comes down to heart and desire, something the Bulldogs were built on!
