Ulster Club SFC 2021
« on: November 14, 2021, 07:32:36 PM »
Prelim. St Eunanís (Donegal) v Watty Grahamís (Derry) 21st Nov.

QFs
Dromore (Tyrone) v Derrygonnelly/Enniskillen Gaels (Fermanagh) 4th Dec.
Ramor Utd (Cavan) v Kilcoo (Down)
Creggan (Antrim) v Clann …ireann (Armagh) Sunday 5th Dec.
Scotstown (Monaghan) v Prelim. Winner

Watched the Armagh final today, very entertaining affair. First half was cagey enough with both teams making sloppy mistakes with Cross first to make an impression. As the game wore on CE got back into it and the teams were level at 0-5 each at ht. The second half saw Cross hit 0-6 without reply before a hell of a comeback from CE with two inspired substitutions and one absolute howler of a goal.

CE make their first foray into Ulster at this level against a Creggan side in a similar situation. Iíd have that game at 50/50, probably depend on which team sobers up first. Either side would fancy their chances through the ďweakerĒ side of the draw.

Outright winner odds from paddy power

Glen 2/1
Kilcoo 11/4
Dromore 4/1
Scotstown 5/1
Clann Eireann 12/1
St Eunans 18/1
Derrygonnelly 20/1
Creggan 20/1
Ramor United 25/1

Glen short enough odds, thought kilcoo would've been favourites just on experience alone.

Kilcoo Dromore final, god help the referee and stewards, McIvor back against his old team. Moran could also be paired against his old team of Maghera.

A Tyrone team in the final? get good odds for that

They have the experience of winning Ulster u21ís, a good mix of experience and youth and the handy side of the draw.

On that note Glen should walk it, they had won 4 Ulster minors in a row with that bunch...

Just out of interest, what makes it the handy side of the draw?

Is Tyrone not the best championship in Ireland? Creating more buzz than the FIFA world cup, surely they are favourites?

Apparently it is but I've yet to see any evidence of that, has a senior club team from Tyrone even got to Croke park?

In fairness they have quality players but because the championship (straight knockout so limited games) is so intense they are fecked afterwards

Very lopsided draw this year and I think the winners will come from the tough section. There is a big chance for an unfancied side to make the final.

Glen are ridiculously short odds given the fact that this is their first Ulster campaign and they will have 4 difficult games to face on their way to winning it. St Eunan's, Scotstown, Kilcoo and Dromore are their likely opponents. Whether they can live up to the hype remains to be seen but they probably have the best manager in this competition which is a big advantage at this level. I do think it will boil down to a battle between Glen and kilcoo to find the winners. At this stage I would go for Kilcoos experience to win out, they have some unfinished business to complete.

Well that excuse doesn't exist this year.
They have 3 weeks and the Fermanagh final is this weekend so that's wee buns for them .
They then play the winners of the Antrim v Armagh game and they are both basically first time winners.
So they will be well rested for the final and they will probably play a team who has had at least 2 very tough games .
Dromore's to lose.
After all it's the best club championship in Ireland
Wanted.  Forwards to take frees.
Not fussy.  Any sort of ability will be considered
