  1. Mic Rees’s piece explains the lot of the Bulldog and describes 4’11” Myrtle’s role in it all. It’s an account of 40 years as a passionate Bulldog and reflects on the Bulldogs’ lot and the remarkable season. All Doggies will relate to this one – and anyone who is deeply connected to their club.

  2. Cat from the Country says

    I am looking forward to receiving a copy for my hubby for Christmas

  3. Neil Anderson says

    I’m looking forward to the eight Grand Final reports. I don’t know how any Bulldog supporters could be calm enough on that day to record the events that occurred on that incredible Saturday in October.
    I had to wait until the Sunday to finally exhale and write something about what It felt like the day after the ‘Miracle On Barkly Street”.

  4. So the Doggies Almanac is playing a six man (person) foreword line. That might actually take off!

  5. Another foreword: Donna Hannan and Russell Griggs who arrive in the west from Queensland and are genuinely surprised at the nature of footy and the Footscray community and footy’s plave in Melbourne life. They get swept up in it. This is their story. Some brilliant photos with their story – of ‘Go Bulldogs’ signs near their home.

  6. Some cracking pieces by Phil Gleeson. One, about Round 1 v Freo watching with his Dad Des (the famous Des) in a pub at Port Fairy. Two, the story of the great Doggies victory in Sydney in 2015, and followed up with his match report of the SCG game in Round 15 this season. And three, the story of the last game at the Western Oval.
