Re: D7000 is horrible at soccer pictures

Something is not right, either the camera or your technique (no offense). I used to shoot a lot of youth soccer with my d7000 and had a keeper rate, as far as focus was concerned, around maybe 8 or 9 out of 10 shots average. My usual settings were AF-C, 9 point, a3 off, and focusing with AF-ON.

If you really can't get focused shots when shooting AF-C under controlled conditions, maybe you need to have your camera checked out. That's not normal. But it's also possible you need to learn the camera. When I first started shooting soccer, my keeper rate was quite low. It took a bit of time to get the hang of it.

If you really want assistance, you need to post sample images with exif.
