I'm a real trickster, but I use practical moves too.

My trademarks are:

TRICKS: ronaldo chop, scissors, stepovers, cuts, elastico, hocus pocus, 360, nutmeg, the pullback inside of foot hit panna, rainbow, chipwith rolling ball the heel over opponent, trcik where you kick it round one side of em and run around the other side. And these are the ones I use all the time. I do loads of other tricks too.

PRACTICAL: Nutmeg pass, backheel pass, rabona, fake rabona, trivela.

To be honest i only really started to get back into football again last month. I have probably only had 10 hours total playing time so far. I am now practising every day - control and tricks. My favourite move is probably step-overs and C.Ronaldo turn. It's weird though, i can do these kind of tricks, but i still can't really do the basic things like kick-ups!! It's getting the ball up in the air i find the hardest, any tips?

Due to the nature of the game I play (Futsal), I usually pass the ball a lot and do my moves out of improvisation (whatever pops in my mind I just do it)

Some of my trademark moves included the lane change (cutting the ball in L-shape past defenders), pull-L, ball-lifting cuts, heel passes, dummies when receiving the ball (like a deliberate miskick), Henry's trick pass, 360 spin, Garrincha, Ronaldo chop, nutmeg, juggles, chipping the ball over defenders, cryuff turn (very effective :D ), stop-and-go, the cow, and rainbow. There's these whole lot of them since others are playing mainly simple (like I'm the only guy who would use all these moves).

Besides that, I also do stepover and scissor combos, but only 1-5 at most at a time.

Overall, my dribbling style is unpredictability. 8)
Joga Bonito is the way I play.

Well I love soccer and only recently came across this forum, saw this thread and decided to make it my first post. :D Well my favorite moves are:

1. The anklebreaker or that's what I call it. Where put your foot on top of the ball and basically roll your ankle inside and flick the ball behind your other leg. It's great when running down the touch line to set up a cross.

2. Kind of a double half roulete, if that makes sense you do a roulete 180 in one direction and then do another 180 back the other way. Sounds retarded but works quite well if done at the right time.

3. The simple but effective stepovers/reverse stepovers.

Definitely the Ronaldo chop, stepovers, the crossover (you know, the drag then stepover with the other foot) and the cow 8)

in my opinion whether you can do hocus pocus flip flap etc or just simple turns and cuts as long as they are effective most of time, it doesn't matter as long as they work.

haha thats what i think i mean i can do some fancy moves i just never feel the need to use them in a game when something simple could be just as effective.

I don't really use fancy moves. If i'm wide, I usually draw the man left (drag it to the left), then just turn right quickly and burst away with pace.

I am really known for my transition from slow dribbling (I really slow down for a few steps right before the defender) to a quick acceleration. Works nearly every time because even if the defender knows what you're doing they can't stop you. I am also known for cutting at precisely the right time. No idea how I do it, it must be subconcious, but it works. Mix up these two with some rolls, lunges, and body fakes makes me pretty unpredictable while being simple and effective.
