So what's so special about Messi?
Well if you ask the educated fan, he's the best player in the world. Girly men and children may prefer Ronaldo but Messi is the consensus best with stats and trophies to prove it.

And I'm happy to report he replicates this excellence in game. His dribbling as in previous years is sublime, best in the game, along with his agility and pace which allow him to get past any player and tight spots. In fact sometimes he does automatic animations when near players to allow you to beat them. His passing is the best for a forward and he will score you long shots again and again (TBH every player will, if you know how to) And he finishes. And finishes and finishes and finishes and finishes. Best finisher in the game, even compared to CR who I admit does beat Messi's strength and heading. Speaking of Ronaldo, where Messi beats him soundly is his freekicks. Messi's FK are insane!.

The best FK in the game!
Better than IF Caheneiglu (not even his mother can spell that name).

So what about the position change?
At first I was worried this would make him less effective. He would go lost, not participate as much in attack, etc. And at first playing him in draft mode and loaned at the start, this was the case. It was only after learning the subtleties of FUT after a couple months did I come back to Messi and realise he is actually better as a winger! He cuts in better than Robben, Hazard, Neymar or Ronaldo and his finishing product is also better. And why is this? It's because of the one thing EA has changed in Messi that makes him better than any previous version.

He has 4 STAR WEEK FOOT!
Now whether this is deserved or not is up to debate but 4 star WF has made Messi unplayable! You no longer have to shoot with the left. You can hit them from anywhere with completely unpredictability and precision. It feels like a cheat code. Messi's right foot takes a better shot than 99.9% of the high rated players in the game!

I play him in this team but I can't see a situation where he would ever be wasted in any team except being an RM. You want this man up front and he can play striker too, just put Hunter on him so he gets the chem boost on pace and shooting.

Without a doubt as far as NIF's go, he's the best player in the game.

5/5

    Trying to make up my mind between him and George Best... think Best is a better investment come TOTY.

    How many of your games was with the false 9? I will be playing Crespo CF and either Messi or George Best RW.

    agreed, messi is amazing and that's a great record

    but this is just lazy :/ IF Caheneiglu (not even his mother can spell that name).

    Calhanoglu. not that hard.

    Get Best. I don't have Legends but I expect they are better.

    I played about 5 games at CF to rest than main team. I don't mind throwing a fitness card on Messi because games without him seem not as fun.

    I try to remember but I always go blank on it. Maybe if I watched him IRL it would be easy because I remember Konoplyanka.

    It's a mix of divisions and tourney, with some singles when I play Messi in a fitness team.

    I made them RF and LF so when I put them at Striker they can get 7chem.

    no he means do you pass to Messi on purpose and try to give him goals, or are they just normal goals from normal play

    imagine passing to Messi on purpose so he can dribble and score or assist :o

    As if you've scored 3 a game with a winger. You must have been playing some very, very bad players.

    What are Neymar and Ibra goal records? Fancy posting a pic?

    Messi is the 2nd best player on this game but that goal record is very inflated

    I've had Neymar way longer than Messi. Ibra has like 7 in 18 games.

    All my games are high scoring 7-5, 6-4, those kinda of outcomes. I don't sit back and ultra defend so maybe that's what you guys are used to?

    Didn't you get bored playing 30 games on amateur? Gotta hand it to you though, most people who do this on these forums aren't that smart and try to sell 5:1 or higher ratios, 7/10 for having some sense and sticking to 3:1.
