How reliable is the *** man advice about player potential?

When the *** man is saying you should offload a player in then near future is that something you should be doing? Can the *** man be significantly wrong about player potential?

His accuracy all depends on his judging player ability and judging player potential.

Unless his judging potential is above 16/17...
BUT also bear in mind he sees the players train day in, day out, and is in charge of all the reserve and U18's games. So is more likely to be right than a scout is.

Only attributes worth relying on for the *** Man are Player Ability, tactical knowledge and Man Management with stats around the 16/17 mark., everything else is a bonus.
I wouldnt rely on an *** Man for pontential stars, thats what the scouts are for. I would on the other hand rely on him for advising me on my current squad.
