The only guarantee is that it won't be pretty stuff but both these teams were built for winter football. Derrygonnelly have a big advantage around the midfield sector but Kilcoo are a very mobile side and can punish opposition teams on the break if they fall into the trap of slow build up play. I think it will go down to the wire but I would just give Kilcoo a slight edge.
So did Glen but Kilcoo nullified their big men mostly. Will be a close one but fancy Kilcoo to edge it.

What province do the Ulster champions face in the AI club semi final this year?

Munster. Kilcoo are the current favourites for the All-Ireland, justified?

Is Mickey Moran still in charge? If so they'd be my favourites ahead of Stacks, Pearses and Kilmacud. Obviously Kilcoo and Austin Stacks have to win tomorrow first!
Finest GAAboard moment: finished joint first on week 2 of the League prediction competition.

Mickey Moran has never won an All Ireland to the best of my knowledge. I would have had Kilmacud down as favourites but if Mannion is going to be out for the season then that is a huge blow to their chances.

They were poor enough in their county final and I wouldn't say they would be the best of the rest. If Kilcoo get past their match I'd fancy them to win

Kilcoo are a different animal imo, serious ability to grind out wins against the odds and nullify good players. Theyíre favourites for me but Derrygonnelly wonít be easily beat- was only a point in it the last time.

Mannion some loss for Kilmacud.

Truth hurts

Kilcoo to beat Derrgonnelly
Stacks to beat Barrs
Kilmacud to beat Pearses
Kilcoo to beat Stacks
The final is game I have the most doubt about - I'm leaning towards Kilmacud at the moment but only slightly.

Kilcoo  1/4    1/6  lift cup
Draw     9/1
Derrygonnelly 4/1    7/2 lift cup

Kilcoo definitely favorites but 4/1 for Derrygonnelly very generous i think. Got to be a close game given the defensive setup of both teams. 

Draw / draw  66/1!

Dour spectacle of a match, Derrygonnelly looked scared stiff that half and retreated their entire side behind the 45m line effectively trying to beat Kilcoo at their own game. Mad stuff altogether, itís a long time since I seen a Gaelic football side have so little possession in a half of football. How can you expect to score without getting the ball back.

Good crowd. Ideal weather for January.

How the Kilcoo goal was allowed to stand is baffling. Clearly fouled the ball and ref fairly close to it. Not that it will matter it appears.
