In my experience:
sore muscles = ok if you were active beforehand
sore joints = not ok at all

Throughout the day keep warm and active. Don't necessarily let your muscles rest. When your not playing walk or something to keep moving.
At the end of the day do you static stretches. Do not hold a stretch for a set amount of time rather you should stretch until you feel the muscle start to relax.
above all else HYDRATION!!!!!!!

Stretching my legs by straightening my legs and bending over to touch my toes, 2 sets of those for 10 seconds
I then sit on the ground and stretch my groin with butterflies, 2 sets 10 seconds each,
I then place one leg tucked in and the opposite straight out and I reach for my toes, 2 sets of 10 seconds on each side,
I stand back up and I stretch my abdomen by holding interlacing my fingers behind my back and lifting up, 2 sets of 10 seconds.
Then placing my hand in the middle of my back and reaching over with my free hand and pull my elbow down I stretch my shoulders, 2 sets of 10 seconds.
Finally, I interlace my fingers again this time in front of my and push as hard as I can in front of me stretching my upper back, again 2 sets of 10 seconds.
Only time I get sore is when I haven't played for a while.. In Alaska I get 3-4 good months to play outside on a regulation field so I get fat in the off season, but I tend to take leave around Cup and go home to Florida.. I'm 21 years old, 5'10" and 160 lbs.. I play every position on the field and have no problems with soreness. Even the larger guys that are on the team aren't sore after stretching like that..

So are you sayong that stretching has no positive affect
Well for helping with performance, yes it has no positive affect. Stretching does help with flexibility but you can actually be too flexible and become just as likely to get injured as someone who isn't flexible. So dont aim to be able to put your leg behind your head. Hell there is even research coming out saying dynamic, explosive stretching, you know the bouncing everyone and their mom tells you not to do while stretching is actually the best kind of stretching
