How's your luck?

The term unlucky is used whenever a player makes an incorrect decision with the ball. A pass back instead of a turn-and-go or a shot on goal when a cross was the better choice. It's the idea of pushing your luck instead of using your head...with negative results.  In soccer, there are so many decisions that have to be made rapidly. It's better to call a decision unlucky than to say 'you suck'.  The emphasis in development is to make the player think, not to beat him down. Save that mentality for sports where the coaches anger is redirected by the player to physically punish an opponent.   Lucky enough to be good. Good enough to be lucky. Good and lucky. (txsoccer)
