The Journal of Applied Sport Psychology is a refereed journal designed to advance thought, theory, and research on applied aspects of sport and exercise psychology. The Forum Editor’s pick from the current issue: Building the “team behind the team”: A 21-month instrumental case study of the Swedish 2018 FIFA World Cup team by Susanne Meckbach, Christopher R. D. Wagstaff, Göran Kenttä & Richard Thelwell (open access).
“A novel attempt to write exclusively about different aspects of psychology, exclusively related to football.” That’s how Karl Marius Aksum describes the ambition behind the collected volume Football Psychology: From Theory to Practice, editied by Erkut Konter, Jürgen Beckman and Todd M.

Unfortunately, writes our reviewer, the book does not deliver on that intention; out of 25 contributions, Aksum can name but a handful that is up to speed on the current state of knowledge in the field of sports psychology.
