    He’ll take a pay cut to stay I reckon. He’s already rich as fuck from this contract and knows that he owes the bulldogs more then what he has been able to give. He is a gun player when fit been playing awesome footy since coming back

    500-600k from the cap plus third parties.
    I think definitely a keeper.
    If he was a 100% no doubt a million dollar half. Each game he plays he seems to have as much influence as Munster not saying he as good but the influence is on par and for mind Munster is pretty much the world's best player.

    He just makes everyone around him look so much better especially when we are rolling forward.

    I just expect the club to get his body right. If they succeed we'll have a world class half for cheap (the money people speculating)

    I would offer him a 2 year deal worth 500 to 550k a season when fit he is class I would have a 3rd year option where if he don't play 70% of games in each of the 1st 2 years he then retires and then takes up a spot on our coaching staff and work with half's coming through by then hopefully the likes of Wakeman will be our starting 7

    I said 500k before he returned from injury. 600k possibly, but that's diffidently recency bias. I think it would really depend on how his injury record goes next season. When fit Foran is a 1m player (he also has leadership qualities). If we could get something extra outside of the cap (that wouldn't affect other players) then maybe we could do that? 3rd parties? I'm not sure...

    Also Joey's really been pushing for him to go to the Knights for a few weeks now :sweatsmile:

    Not even close, we're not going to be signing him for 1.2m a season again (back ended)...

    Loyalty is rare in today's age. I'd expect everyone to take a more lucrative offer elsewhere (300k+ extra). Just to throw an e.g. out there, if Knights offered him 800-900k a year I'd expect him to be gone if our offer was 500-600k.

    Foran's still obviously a great player. Not just in attack - I loved the way he led our defensive line-speed for a lot of tonight. But mainly he just knows how to win and it lifts the young guys. (my only small criticism tonight is that he should have taken more control in the last 5 mins instead of Lewis).

    Regardless of how good he is though, he is very injury prone and I wouldn't be offering anything until we see lots of fit footy well into next year. We've also got three young halves with potential to consider, plus a lot to spend for 2020, including enough for a young gun half depending on who's available.

    I love the way he plays and leads though, so if he did miraculously stay fit and play well deep into next year, I'd offer him $700k for a couple of years.

    So be it. Value for money is more important.

    Incredible what few wins can do...
    Not long ago almost every kenneler was abusing the hell out of him, suddenly he is a hero...that's fine,
    The questions that needs answering, if he stays fit
    Would he still want to stay with us ?
    Does he finally feels Belmore is home ?
    Will he accept a reasonable offer ?
    Or none of the above
    Is he trying that little extra to impress and secure an early exit from our club ?
    The way football business done these days...Unfortunately it left me pessimistic !!!

    He has 1 year left on his contract then he should be let go. I'm happy to go with Lewis/Cogger/Wakeham for 2021.

    I'd like to keep him. His experience is priceless for the young team.

    His body isn't getting any younger and his injuries will always be there as we hear a lot how he needs to manage them so they will always hamper him ever year stopping him from playing a full season.

    However, I'd like to think he has the clubs best interest when wanting a new contract and come to a fair and reasonable figure that justifies his time in the team, not out of it.
