With up to 140,000 expected through the gates of Croke Park, it's the biggest weekend of the football season thus far, and Ciaran Whelan and Eamonn Fitzmaurice join Mikey Stafford and Rory O'Neill to look ahead to it.

Whelo doesn't give Cork a prayer against the Dubs, and nor does Rory for that matter, but an encouraging performance ahead of next year's Division 2 campaign will be key.

Derry's month off will have done them the world of good, thinks Eamonn ahead of their clash with Clare, who have the midfielders to put pressure on the Derry kick-out.

Armagh and Galway is too close for the lads to call, but with everyone expecting a humdinger of a game with forwards to the fore Whelo warns Galway would be wrong to engage in a shootout.

Game of the weekend or foregone conclusion? It's hard to know what to expect from Mayo and Kerry, as the perennial contenders look to raise their game for meeting with the favourites. Kerry's bench is awesome, but could Mayo throw cat among the pigeons and place Aidan O'Shea at full-forward?
