VOTE: The Atlanta United Skills of the Year (Round of 16)

It's that time of year again: time to crown the best of the best on the field from Atlanta United this year. First up: the flicks, tricks and skills that took our breath away this year.

We start with the Round of 16, you have until November 28th to cast your vote.

Josef Martinez (1) vs Emerson Hyndman (16)

The move that won Josef Martinez the MLS Goal of the Year. But don't sleep on Emerson Hyndman leaving two defenders in his dust from a tight position on the sideline.

Winner: Josef Martinez vs FC Cincinnati

Tito Villalba (2) vs Mikey Ambrose (15)

Even San Jose's head coach couldn't contain himself after this trick. And did he mean it or not? He won't care.. Mikey Ambrose with the filthy move against the Union!

Winner: Tito Villalba vs San Jose Earthquakes

Pity Martínez (3) vs Eric Remedi/Julian Gressel (14)

One-on-one or silky team play. This one could go either way!

Winner: Pity Martínez vs Club América

Justin Meram (4) vs Josef Martinez (13)

Justin Meram put on a show in his return to Orlando, while Josef Martinez showed how unstoppable he can be with his hold-up play.

Winner: Justin Meram vs Orlando City

Tito Villalba (5) vs Tito Villalba (12)

It's no surprise to get a Tito vs Tito matchup with all the thrills he's given us over the years. Which one was your favorite?

Winner: Tito Villalba vs Philadelphia Union

Pity Martínez (6) vs Dion Pereira (11)

Two dribbles that made defenders go flying –– and Pereira sent him so far we had to keep it wide-screen.

Winner: Pity Martínez vs LA Galaxy

Gressel/Hyndman (7) vs Ezequiel Barco (10)

Another team vs solo comparison. Is it the slick backheel or the electric spin move for this round?

Winner: Gressel/Hyndman vs Montreal Impact

Josef Martinez (8) vs Justin Meram (9)

Whenever you make a defender and goalkeeper fall over each other, you've done well. But Justin Meram is teaching lessons about keeping those legs closed!
