Jeez Trueman is a sensational young player.

We must simply agree to differ - flat track bully for me
Your job is to say to yourself on a job interview does the hiring manager likes me or not. If you aren't a particular manager's cup of tea, you haven't failed -- you've dodged a bullet.

I don’t see the Trueman hype - a very one dimensional player that can be easily shut down. Cas got to the top 5 because of the dire standard of most teams in SL I.e. the best of a bad lot


Totally agree. Trueman is average at best. He may develop but right now he only capable of the odd good game. Him and Richardson together could be a total nightmare for CAS next season. Way too inconsistency both of them.

Hardly unique in that respect at cas. I'd like to see him progress under a different coach before jumping to that conclusion.

As a 20 year old half I'd say his critics would be seeing a more consistent player truer to his capability, if he was playing alongside a fit and in form Gale.

So what do you think will be seen when he is with Richardson?

Yep not a flat track bully, got plenty of time to develop, but potential does not always equate to real talent, one great game against a dire Hull side does not make him the world beater some are making out, see where he is at when he is 22-23.

We have a fair number of young players of a similar age and younger who will frustrate sometimes. There is some real good talent coming through across the game at the moment which is great to see - you look at players like Welsby at Saints and he has England FB written all over him already.

Isn’t this thread kinda dead now by the way...?

His CV dosnt just consist of one great game against Hull, he's had plenty of good games aswel as a few bad ones, theres a clear middle ground between flat track bully and world beater, at 20 yearold, Truemans at the higher end of that middle ground for me, certainly ahead of the curve of where you'd expect a 20 yearold half to be.

As you say, potential dosnt always equate to real talent, but thats nothing new, it applys to every young player. Hopefully Trueman goes on to fulfill his potential .
