The Soccer Talisman
Articles by Andrew Winner
What exactly does the term Talisman meaning in football/soccer? A talisman is something or someone who produces apparently magical or miraculous effects.
Often in football/soccer a player is deemed a talisman for the team. Think Ronadlinho when he played for Barcelona or Henry when he was with Arsenal. With that particular player the team can win, without that player they will often lose or struggle to play well, that's what a talisman is. It's that thing or player that makes a team successful and play well.
