You probably are right I will not argue with you. No matter he is doing a good job so I really don't care where he is from to be honest once we keep getting the results we are getting at the moment. I suppose in this game you are only as good as your last result before the negatives start coming.

no harm done and I cannot argue with you about where he is from but really it does not matter he is doing the business thats all that matters.

I stand corrected, but is he not from Fermanagh, and an uncle of the golfing twins from Ballyconnell?

Deanmartin, you are way off the mark..terry Hyland has done a great job of managing these young lads. To think that 21 or 22 yr olds will suddenly evolve into snr county footballers is to say the least being very naive. While some lads mature quickly, it takes most a couple of yrs. getting them by that 22-23 yr mark is the challenge. A challenge Terry seems to have coped with, very well. 'Patience' is the word and Terry Hyland seems to have loads of it.

It was also down to a change of tactics which was much needed.

More naivety, 'you walk before you run'

So the change has nothing to do with it?
Fair play to management for getting it done.
Or is that naive too.

Slasher, can you tell me the difference between the tactics we played last year against for example Laois, Monaghan, Roscommon in the League last year and the tactics that we played against Meath (for the second half when Terry had his apparent "epiphany") Armagh and Fermanagh? Specifics now not just "we're attacking more"

Sorry to disagree with you slasher but yeah, if you think somebody suddenly decided to flip a switch and say lets play attacking football. Players management and tactics have evolved together through a lot of hard work and dedication.

We have less men behind the ball now and we're breaking faster. Our goalie is a big part of the new plan too. Great kick passes from him and with pinpoint precision. On several occasions last year i saw only one player ahead of the ball. That's not happening now.

I actually got Deanmartin all wrong. Thought he just had an agenda against manager. My apologies.

What Terry has done since he took over the U21's is given the Cavan supporter optimism for the future, he has raised expectations, for some the future couldn't come quick enough. Terry had to start from scratch and has built his team up from what he started at U21 level. Yes at times the football was horrific to watch and we got some bad beating on big days but these were mainly all young lads learning their trade as county footballers. These lads started their senior county football careers at a time when Cavan were probably at the lowest they ever were. Don't forget where we came from, surviving from relegation to Div 4 on the last day in both 2011 & 2012. The last time Cavan had won more than 1 league game while competing in the top 2 divisions of the league was in 2003 the following year they were relegated and only appeared once more in Div 2 in 2008. For these last two campaigns in Div 2 we have being/are in a position where promotion to Div 1 was/is achievable going into the last few games. In the Ulster championship the previous 10 years before Terry we played 15 games won 4 drew 1 and lost 10. In Terry's 4 campaigns to date we W 2 L 4, we were beaten by Donegal (eventual Ulster & All Ireland champions), Monaghan x2 (eventual Ulster champions both times ) and Armagh.
They say footballers reach their peak at 27/29 years of age, a lot of our lads haven't reached that yet. Terry has to be commended also for leaving the past behind and bringing SJ back into the fold, an unpopular decision among a lot of supporters at the time. All in all Terry has done a lot more for Cavan football than some on here would like to admit.

Aceofspades, lets not cloud our judgement with facts, what have the facts ever done for us ???? Seriously though, I hope we never go down the road of the premiership of calling for the managers head after one poor season ... I believe most genuine Cavan supporters don't subscribe to that. We are making progress and thankfully the manager has been allowed to continue. I agree that a lot of our players have matured, some were thrown in at the deep end but you got to say he showed faith in them and they are paying dividends now, long may it continue.

Dora - didn't you understand that he was a huge Terry fan all along?

Its actually embarrassing but also slightly enjoyable to see lads like Deanmartin coming back, cap in hand, to Terry! And great to see that we are already in the top 3 teams of division 1 without even being promoted!

It's great that Cavan are at long last playing football in the right way and moving the ball foreword at pace which gives our attacking players more of a chance... What I can't understand is how did Hyland stand on the line for 3/4 years and persist with a style of play that had supporters and players bored to tears... In our first 2 and a half games we were pathetic but something did happen at half time in Navan to change things and long may it continue... Roll on the Laois game

Cavan attacked last year under McHale and put up some good scores.

They didn't have Givney etc which is why they look more of a theat this year. Plus lots of options at midfield now. which has freed up McKiernan onto the 40 .

Plus they're breaking faster and not playing short handpasses sideways across the field.
