Basically What are your Trademark moves?
this could be very simple to very complicated moves! or even a style of play... say you love playing gambetta

Mine are

1. Hocus Pocus

a reverse elastico behind and around (the infront) of your supporting leg

this is my instinctive 1v1 move (but i usually just fake kick or stepover instead)

2. Double Stepover

do one stepover then quickly do another one with your other foot and explode the way you originally 'stepoverred :? ' toward

this is my move i use when running quickly with the ball

3. Heel 360

backheel the ball behind you, then bring your other leg around and backheel the ball laterally the otherway... basically a roulette using your heel instead of the sole of your feet

my turning move, very hard to control exactly where it goes... but looks so good when it works

my favorite moves are:

1. inside /reverse stepover basically a stepover but swing ur foot from outside to inside.

2. footroll where u roll the ball to the side with the bottom of ur foot.

maradona 360 turn where u do a maradona but instead of putting ur turning foot on the ball put it just in front od the ball spin round and hit with ur heel.

My trademark is scoring with my ass, seriously. Its easy in pick-up games but hardrer in competive matches.

My moves that i usually do are the simple but efective ones. I use the Cruyff turn and the one where you pull it back go go into another direction like a V shaped movement, name slips my mind.

Despite all my harking on about not using them I have to confess that I do in fact have a signature move, which is of course the 360 (I don't like maradona so I call it that)

This is the only move I do in games because it goes along with the idea of don't be the first to commit, a lot of people who don't know how to use this move try to use it as the first move, in which case you get creamed, but it's perfect for a 5050 ball situation or if the defender reaches his leg out, or even if you miss your first touch and you need to shield the ball. Seriously, this is the best move ever, which is the only reason I would ever use it.

Me Rzad and I think Gnarly also have a move which we all created that I use a lot when I'm just screwing around and I've really only used it once in a game (it worked perfectly though) Basically what you do is a right footed inside rollover, reverse scissor with your left foot and then do a rabona with your right foot to get it back in front of you. It looks really good when you get a nutmeg with it, but please don't use it, it's a stupid trick.

I just use cuts, feints, and the matthews. Recently I have effectively pulled off a few stepovers. The level I play at generally doesn't require using fancy moves to beat defenders, though.

Hugh!!!

i thought i invented that move aswel!

sometimes i would do a cruyff chop intsead of a rollover, i think it looks pretty stylish!!!

i think it's called the Preki move
or
the Rabona Fake

i think we should name it cause i think its effective!

1. Crossover(I think thats what its called)
- I roll the ball left with my right foot
- Then I do an inside stepover with my left foot
- Then I use my right foot(Which is in the back) to cut it back right

Its great for nutmegs, and when its timed perfectly, when the defender sticks his foot out as you cut the ball back, everybody is stunned.

2. Inside stepovers

3. Elastico

I fell in love with this move when I first saw it. I had to make it part of my game.

I try to combo the moves sometimes such as the inside stepover followed by the elastico. Its worked a couple times when Ive had to split 2 defenders, but not so much. Ill make it though 8)

1. Don't think that's called a crossover, that's the same move that Rzad, Gnarly, Newbornprodigy and I made up. Preki sounds about right, I think that was what it is...

I use simple cuts and the Zidane 360 spin. I have done the elastico but only in street football. I also like to use the stepover sometimes.
