Ted Lasso Wiki

Ted once told Sam that a goldfish was the happiest animal in the world, because it had a ten-second memory. He then encouraged the player to "be a goldfish".

Although Sam didn't quite gt the point at the time, the metaphor was meant to encourage Sam to forget that he was getting disrespected on the pitch by Jamie. It was Ted's somewhat unconventional way to keep Sam from being defined by Jamie's insults.
