Фрагмент из книги:
Matthew Syed talks about how he became a table tennis star At the age of 24, I became the British number-one table tennis player for the very first time which, I am sure you will agree, is a huge achievement. I suddenly found myself on the receiving end of regular invitations to speak to school audiences about my rise to international glory, and would often take my gold medals along to show the youngsters.

FUTURE FOOTBALL STARS.
Football academies were set up by leading football clubs like Manchester United and Liverpool so their coaches could run trials to identify and train talented boys from as young as eight as potential players for their first team. All the big football clubs have one, and other less well-known teams run their own schools of excellence.

This means that in Britain there are at least 9,000 boys at any one time attending academies after school who think they are going to be a famous footballer. Unfortunately, for most this isn't the case. One eight year old was selected for Chelsea academy and he went from being top of his class at school to being the boy who was messing around at the back. His mother asked him why he wasn't trying hard at school any more. His reply was that he was going to be a goalkeeper and be rich so he didn't need to. In the end, he only lasted a year in the academy but, luckily for him, he was still young enough to recover and not be so discouraged that he never played football again.

But football is not unique. Any sport or other field where only a few can get to the top has an invisible layer of also-rans. These people are very talented and do their absolute best but ultimately it will not pay off because they are just not exceptional enough. In football, this effect is magnified because the numbers of players selected for training by academies is so huge. Most of these won't get into a team and most won't become professionals.
