    So which are your favourite moves?
    Well I play AMR so shooting, crossing and passing are out of discussion, they're a must. But when I get in a good scoring oportunity, like a 1 on 1 with the gk I love to lob him, makes the goal (if scored of course :p) have a special feeling. One more move that I like is using the outside of the foot in crossing, long passing or even shooting (remember Henry's goal in the group stage of the Champions League, last year I reckon, vs Rosenborg).

    I love breaking ankles with the elastico, it never gets old seeing people stumble back and fall over. I do like to get in with a nice hard challenge too.

    That Henry goal I was talking about was actually against Sparta Prague in this year's Champions League groups.

    The Cryuff turn used to be my favourite when I was a kid, I practiced for hours in my garden after seeing Gazza do it in Italia 90. Now I really like the "Roulette" or the Zidane 360 as it's known. I'd love to be able to do the rollover stepover that Cristiano Ronaldo does (where he flicks the ball behind him to change direction) or the Rivelinho Elastico (flip-flap) :Bow:

    Dunno really. The only thing as a keeper is the scorpion kick that Higuita did, I tried that once and almost snapped my spine :kader:

    Power half volley or a dipping volley.

    Example: Yaboah(sp?) for leeds back in the early prem days. And Rooney v Newcastle.

    And you can't beat a crunching slide tackle :rockman:

    Amen, a Scott Parker or John Terry kind of tackle with the opposing player up in the air gives an awesome feel. (H)

    A Lauren tackle.

    And I love that ronnie move where, it's well simple, he turns well fast and the ball doesn't leave his foot, he like swings his leg 180 degrees with the ball stuck to his foot. I like that.

    I also like dragging back with my right foot and then kicking it with my left through a players legs.

    Yeah, Ronnie did that thing vs Werder Bremen, he went between two players with that move.

    In all honesty, after the past few days of pure football and nutmegging and doing a fair few tricks and flicks, I managed to nutmeg someone with a Cruijff turn (H) and even a volley from 35 yards nothing has beaten a tackle.

    It doesn't even have to be a great tackle. just tackling someone, slide tackle or not gives me that satisfaction nothing has beaten yet. I guess i'm a defender by heart. If only I realised this about 8 years ago then I might of just been able to be good enough to turn pro.

    as a defender i get a lot of satisfaction out of good hard fair sliding tackles. if you do it a few times you'll earn respect from the guy you're marking!
    a very basic and old thing i do to get past opponents is just knock the ball past the opponents right side and run round the other way.
    putting the ball through an opponents legs is fun

    I like pushing the ball past the defenders left side and then running around him on the right regaining the ball in the process. I'm usually faster than most defenders so it works a lot of the time.
     
  15. Too right, especially if you hate the man your markin, gettin nice hard slidin tackle into 'um an seein um hit the ground hard its the best feelin'. Also two footed tackles are allowed in the league i play in, obviously only if you get the ball. I once made about 3 sliding tackles ina row, one after the other, the adrenaline rush was incredible.

    Another good feeling is dashin back to clear the ball of the line, specially if your in mid air while you do it. Although it can turn out bad if you miss hit it an slice it into your own net.

    Oh man, that's not even half as fun as taking it around the keeper, that was always my specialty back in the day. But my favorite thing to do in the world is hammer a headed goal, I love being Ballack in the box. I'm a solid 6'1'' and 180 (170 when I used to play :() and have always been a good athlete, so I can just get way up there and score some great headed goals. Oh man, those are the best.

    Oh, and I always practiced what I call the "Gerrard shot" which is just a line drive rocket from 25-30 yards into the upper V, but I never pulled one off in a game. That would have been the greatest moment in my life. I think I did once have one that dipped perfectly right before it got to the goal, but it hit the bar.

    Stepovers, fancy tricks, and i like to do the rabona, one of C. Ronaldo's trademark moves. With the difference that he crosses the ball, and i put it into the back of the net. (H)

    I love going for runs with the ball, dribbling and getting around people is just totally awesome, especially as I play indoor so it's a lot faster and cramped game, so when you do get around them you feel like a superstar.

    When it comes to outdoor I love taking set pieces and curling shots and I love volleys!!
