So I was thinking of picking Economics+geography+ICT is that a strong combination, are these considered 'soft subjects' if so any suggestions like the title says what's the best combination to open the most doors and get me into better universities?

At this stage, don't start going all tactical in your selection. You'll drain the joy out of your education, and thus be unable to truly appreciate academia once you do enter university.

Pick what you'd like to learn about.

With all due respect I'd rather do a GCSE I don't enjoy and get a A/A* then do one I do and get a C/B...

With all due respect you were asking in regards to the value of the subjects to universities, and not your limited or otherwise capabilities to achieve in them. That consideration is your own to factor for.

It is unlikely that a student who truly loves their subject, and honestly endeavors to do the work, will do poorly at GCSE level.

Choose what you really want to study; you may well end up doing better in the subjects you enjoy as you'd be more willing to work for them. Ask your teachers and parents for their advice and opinions (but do be careful - many teachers may encourage you to do their subject but don't feel obliged to if you really don't want to do it).
What is your language choice?

At GCSE it doesn't particularly matter as long as you enjoy them and they won't block any potential A-level choices. Just get a bunch of A*s. 'Nuff said.
