    Question How do i fix these sentences??

    Dear teachers and members,
    Are these sentences correct? I think I make some mistakes(in grammar or structure) in these sentences. Could you suggest me ways to fix them?

    -Most of my friends looked at me with surprise.
    -That was exactly the same as my expectation.
    -Most people felt surprised.
    -It is becoming more and more popular.
    -Boys generally were playing better so they laughed at us sometimes, but we didnít care about that very much.
    -Soccer games need much running, physical strength and power.

    Thank you very much.
    Joanna

    The boys were generally playing better and sometimes laughed at us, but we didn't really care about that.
    -Soccer games need much running, physical strength and power.
    Soccer games involve a lot of running, so require a degree of physical strength and power.

    Thank you very much.

    Try:

    Possibly:
    Playing soccer involves much running, thus it requires much stamina.
