True, frustration is normal and beneficial for development, but channeling frustration into anger is neither good nor what all good players do. Keep your cool, give some respect to your opponent (if they are deserved of it, depending on how the match went, otherwise just keep your mouth shut), and save that frustration for the practice field and your next opponent.

@Nat_H... What about Roy Keane? Surely I can think of (or find) plenty more, but that's an awful generalization. There is no one personality of a professional athlete.

I don't think I generalized, did I? I said not all good players get angry. I said that specifically to balance out SoccerFitnessTrainer's statement:
Almost all good players got temper.
I agree there is no one personality of a professional athlete. Some get angry, some don't. I was trying to convey that a bad-boy attitude is inefficient and counterproductive to your development, in general. If you disagree, or you actually find being angry helpful for yourself (which it may be in some cases), then disregard my advice.

I did mean to give general advice, in that in both applied to me, and I hoped it would be effective for others, but I never did generalize other players' attitudes.

I wouldn't make myself angry if i was you.

Yes its true that your body is most powerful when it is scared like in life threatening situations, and the next powerful stage is when you are angry and really pissed off, but your brain doesn't work as well when your angry so you will make stupid mistakes out of frustration as you'll rush yourself automatically.

I personally motivate myself by telling myself that i really am the best player on the pitch and that i just have to try and i will play as the best player on the pitch, from there i just focus on the game and enjoy myself while still concentrating.

Sounds arrogant but it works really well for me.

No i dont think it does sound arrogant, if it works for you why not, thinking positive has so many benefits, im learning about self hypnosis at the moment.

Well during the game it happens when i finally get the time, like if there is only 15 minutes left. But usually its only after the game

I learnt about it, I made my own tapes, my own induction, deepening, suggestions and the final phase which I forget the name..

I really would get into a huge ass trance, like i was dumb, I would drool and all, but I dont know if the suggestions did any effect...

Its an interesting phenomena..

but now I like to change my beliefs and ideas confronting them with reality, its better for me.. the old fashion way :)

...
And about sore loser, I think its a great thing to have.. Being a sore loser is synonim to having a huge desire to win..Lebron James is a sore loser, Cr9 is a sore loser etc.... It makes you wanna die in that field, and at the end of the day, thats when you play at your peak, when your out your comfort zone, when nothing else matters but that ball..

i think its a good thing to be a sore loser it shows you care.. my whole team is bunch of a sore losers :D but one of the problems if we lose instead of looking at what they or we as a team could have done better they first go and yell at others on the team that made some mistakes.. it gets really annoying sometimes because it makes everyone feel bad...
