Hey Guys.. I was Just Wondering what you all thought was the best Moves Around

like maybe what move looks the coolest.. or is the most effective..or hardest to pull off?

The Coolest Looking Move For me. has to be:
Step Overs (Scissors) i love doing them! they look great!
Most Effective. Roullete! never fails either does Elastico!
Hardest to Pull of..Hmm Hocus Pocus .. love doing it quiete hard to do when runing quiete fast :( looks terrible when u do it wrong tho :(

Coolest looking: Roulette when it is done to split two defenders

Most effective: Scissors stepovers, or elastico

Hardest to pull off: Hocus pocus

Btw, this thread probably should be in dribbling and control, if a mod would be so kind to move it...... :wink:

Hmmm, i'd have to agree with Soccer4Life on:

Coolest Looking: Nutmeg
the Rainbow of course :wink:
And the Ronaldo Pullback
Most Effective: Scissors/Stepovers, Modified versions of the elastico
Hardest: Hocus Pocus, although i can get it about 40-50% of the time now.

Coolest looking: A good nutmeg (especially one that isn't just pass the ball through the legs, and instead like Adriano or Fabregas) takes the cake. Van Persie's reverse elastico/dummy thing comes in a close second.

Most effective/efficient: Fake kicks and lunges are foolproof. It is easy to commit your body into the action, easy to do in any situation, and is very likely to throw a defender off. Stepovers are only effective when they are mastered, and usually they are not when people try to do them. A good stepover takes more than just putting your leg around a ball, it has to be done at pace and throwing your body weight. Most people think that the foot movement is enough.

Hardest: I guess hocus pocus, there isn't really any other option, is there?

Most effective: scissors
Hardest: The one Henry does when he steps on the ball with his heel and flicks it up over the defender.
Coolest: Zidane 360

your supposed to do hocus pocus when your not in a speed, its actually more
effective when your standing still in 1 vs 1 then doing it in speed.

It's no problem man. Also, I just found this video compilation of all hocus pocus on youtube, it's a pretty cool video, it might give some people more insight on how to do it properly.

I also like the hocus pocus and the elastico is my favorit . I even have it on video of me doing it in a match . I was very happy that day .
