I got a few tips

Last year I was on my school team and I too good at practice was virtually unexisted in games, after the season I reflacted on this and came to the conclusion that u can't be nervous, u got to have fun, and most importantly u can't be everywhere. Dont run to the balll let the ball come to u.

This season I refered to this info in my first game and I scored 2 times in a 3-2 loss. My next game is on Monday.

I step on the field knowing I'm the best player on it. You gotta think like this: "I fu**ing own these fu**s. It's showtime." -- you need to believe in yourself, and know that you're better than your opponents. I have a game in London tommorow and I am going to fu**ing rape, baby. :D

you should feel confident but not cocky. you will be greatly dissapointed one day if you are a cocky person. it would be like someone who was up high fell down to the ground.

I'm not great at practices, but I kick the crap out of people in games. I spend hours before a game figuring out how I'm going to play, who I need to worry about on the other team, etc. Just focusing on the game helps prepare mentally. Soccer players need mental toughness, otherwise you can kiss any prayer of going pro away.

Not everyone here is trying to go pro. Alot of people are just trying to improve their game and be the best they can be.

I'm saying that if you want to increase your overall skill, then you need mental toughness.

You definately have to remember that its just a game, and have alot of fun. I have heard about this computer program you can buy that like pumps you up for the game, but I think its a hoax.

I would just stick with having fun, and not worrying about winning too much. But, don't get too carried away....stay focused.

I think one of the best ways to get Prepared Mentally is to LIsten to your Favrite Music and focus on the game as much as posssible. It usually works for me. :)

one thing I do is watch lots and lots and lots of soccer games on TV, on the internet, wherever.

Next when you are playing you need to be totally relaxed and focus on your goal, mine is to humiliate the defenders, do a lot of nice one touch passings and score a lot of goals.

Also as adam #17 said you need to think that you are better than all of them, you have to think that you are invencible. And I have to admit, cursing a lot can help too (but not out loud :wink: ). You guys should see the movie Raging Bull :wink: .
