Snazzy Football

Study carefully, Ronaldo, here’s the latest footie move!


Fans of the excellent football/war film Escape To Victory – in which Michael Caine puts in the thirteenth or fourteenth best performace of his whole career – might remember Ossie Ardiles pulling off a version of this particular move.

Known in the trade as “the one where you flick it over your head”, it has become part of the homage to the 1980s that appears to be sweeping the planet, thanks to movies like Hot Tub Time Machine, bright garish clothes, and the crippling financial downturn.

Cristiano Ronaldo, get practicing.
