‘You create your own luck, in a way’. About Norwegian footballers’ understanding of success, in a world where most fail | A summary
In this feature article, Pål Augestad, Mats Bruu and Frode Telseth summarize their recent article from Soccer & Society in which they present the results of a study trying to find out why some young and ambitious football talents succeed in their quest to become professional players while the overwhelming majority does not. Is it deliberate practice and successful talent development? Or maybe just plain luck? They asked the players that made it what they thought.

The Forum Editor’s pick from the current issue: ‘YOU CREATE YOUR OWN LUCK, IN A WAY’ ABOUT NORWEGIAN FOOTBALLERS’ UNDERSTANDING OF SUCCESS, IN A WORLD WHERE MOST FAIL by Pål Augestad, Mats Bruu & Frode Telseth.
