Does this shot already have a name?

Post by Ben » Thu Dec 31, 2009 11:16 am

Whilst playing about and practising euro's I saw the potential of a new shot.

Basically you have the ball pinned with the mid man far pull side (or push side if you prefer), so the near side man is close to the wall. Then loop you player round euro styley twice, dragging the ball along a bit each time then obviously hitting the ball into the goal.

So euro (anti clockwise with drag), euro (anti clockwise with drag), smash.

I'd like to say at this point that I not managed one yet, the funny thing is I can manage the two euro loops but can't get my brain to hit the ball in the goal, but I was only trying this shot for about five mins before the football was on tv.

If no ones already invented and named this shot then I crown it the curly wurly :) :)

Isn't that the Euro-to-Fakey?

I thought that was one loop and then another loop the other way for a double, but typically around the centre spot. What if you do two loops in the same direction? Is that not a variant of a euro in its own right?

TBH I've never been one to keep up with the trends of which shot is called what and I can't get youtube at work dude :(

Oh right, I missed that it was in the same direction - yeah the e2f changes direction with each fakey. hmm havn't heard a name for a loopy euro going in the same direction before, but maybe someone else has - otherwise the curlywurly it is :)

I shoot this shot from the 2 bar - usually on the push side. It's very effective, particularly when combined with a genuine fakey and a single loop-pin-rollover straight. 2-bar gives you more space to execute so it's much easier to pull it off.

No name for it though.

Is this a new shot?

I loop over the ball and drag it right, then loop over the ball again and drag it right, then do a bit of a cotty whiff, then loop and drag to the left twice followed by an angled shot into the opposite part of the goal?

I'll call it the flakey to fakey to whiffy.

I have many more combinations of shot in a similiar style to this one and already have a patent on them for upto 5 loopy fakeys both ways. A bit like Gilette and their increasing number of blades on a razor.

Thanks.

It's a unique shot in its own right it should have a name IMO.

I did one the other day in practise. :)

Do we need a poll?

I got this shot right.

I think I might call it 'the goldfish'

It started out when I was practising and I did a thing -

and then thought 'wow that was good' but when I tried to do it a minute later I forgot what I did.

Martyn Harris will know what I'm on about!!!!

Anyway it happened again but this time I couldn't shoot the thing I did and after trying so many times - finally I forgot again.

If it happens again I'll let you all know - unless I forget before I post it!

Surely "Euro to Fakey" would imply that the ball is pinned and then a shot is "faked" and you return to the pin.

I.e. your shot is two "push" Euro to Fakeys. The normal shot is a Euro to Fakey one way and then a pin the other way.

Or should it be "Euro to Fakie" implying a reversal (i.e. the left to right movement of the show).

Either way I'm sure it's rubbish and I could block it.

I've always called it the euro-to-fakey-to-fakey, because you are faking a euro-to-fakey. Simples!

Not to be confused with the double-euro-to-fakey or the euro-to-fakey-to-snakey.

To be honest the Curly Wurly is a good name, I'd be happy to adopt it. I think we need other Cadbury's chocolate based names for shots:

The fudge.
The chomp.
The crunchie.
The euro-to-flakey.
