Tyrone have gone back to Type A football, which is Cathal McShane up front on his own and everybody else in defence, running with the ball and putting the odd ball in to him.

McShane is brilliant at showing for it, he's very clever. Hopefully if he wins it, the support runners will then be off his shoulder.

I think Tyrone realise it's good enough to beat the Longfords, probably good enough to beat Kildare and they might commit more forward as the need is necessary down the line.

Kildare had a great win over Antrim, Neil Flynn and Adam Tyrrell contributed 0-15 out of 1-25. Jimmy Hyland, Ben McCormack, Fergal Conway is gone to midfield, they are all contributing.

It's hard to gauge Kildare. Tyrone will try to suffocate them and hit them on the counter.

Tyrone beat Longford but they have to still be brittle after Donegal so they are there for the taking as well.

Will Kildare have the patience, the doggedness, the possession to win it? I'm not sure. I'll go for Tyrone, just.

For me, this will be about Clare's ability to beat a Westmeath side that like to get bodies back.

They try to be difficult to score against, however, they conceded 1-10 to Limerick in Mullingar, so it's not as if they are watertight.

Some would question whether Jack Cooney is getting the most out of creative playres like Ger Egan, Kieran Martin and John Heslin, who was actually a sub for the last game.

His style of play doesn't suit these type of players. They get bodies back, they work it up slow. 

His answer will be that they've only lost one game this year, which is the only reply he needs really.

I feel Clare can win this. I know it's a 15-man team but they rely so much on Gary Brennan and Cathal O'Connor around the middle, and Eoin Cleary, Jamie Malone and David Tubridy up front.

It will be very difficult for them because I imagine Westmeath will get bodies back but I do think they can cause an upset in Mullingar.

At least the Mayo fans will have a home venue but they've no luck elsewhere.

Captain Diarmuid O'Connor, who was playing at midfield, is now gone as is Mattie Ruane, gone from midfield the week previous.

Tom Parsons is out, Donal Vaughgan and Seamie O'Shea are just back but in what condition? Are you going to risk them?

Mayo are struggling, there's no doubt about that.

Aidan O'Shea has been and still is their main man this season. He's been colossal and will be vital.

Lee Keegan scored three points against Down and Paddy Durcan had three opportunities, they have to be pinned down by Armagh.

Mayo kicked 1-09 from their starting forwards the last day, which isn't too bad, but they were open at the back and Armagh have really good forwards.

Jamie Clarke, Andrew Murnin, Stefan Campbell. They had 13 scorers against Monaghan and put up 2-17. 

It's been a brilliant year for Armagh, coming from a place where they didn't win an Ulster game for a long while.

Mayo are vulnerable, Armagh have a huge chance of upsetting the odds here. But I will stick with Mayo, I think they have enough to get over the line.

A lot of people would see Laois as favourites here but it's a local derby and that's not the way it's going to happen; I think it's going to be very close.

I think the way both teams would like to play football will lead to an open game.

In the forwards, you have the Kingstons, Evan O'Carroll and Colm Murphy on one side and the McNamees and Bernard Allen on the other. If they get enough ball, they both have the chance of winning the game.

Donie (L) and Paul Kingston 

It will come down to which defence stands up more and which goalie ensures most possession.

Offaly have beaten London and Sligo well. Laois are a bigger test. They've gone to Derry and beaten an improved Oak Leaf side, and in Portlaoise, it's probably Laois.
