Hi All,

I was wondering what you guys think about the price difference between Messi and Robben.

I compared the Stats and of course Messi's key stats are a bit higher than those of Robben but I dont believe that I can feel the difference for example between 95 and 91 balance or 96 and 93 dribbling.

Sure Messi has 4* weak foot, big plus. But the workrates of Robben suit me more.
Messi is easier to Hybrid, sure. But its not impossible with Robben either.

Messi is approximately 600K more expensive than Robben, is this justified based on stats?

Please let me know what your stance is on the matter.

Regards

    I tried them all .. well till I learn to do more skills Messi will be my favorite, but now I prefer Robben... but Bale is not really good for, I tried him yesterday in FUT Draft and he was terrible, maybe I didnt know how to play him. lol

    yeah I'd probably go with that actually:
    1. Messi
    2. Bale
    3. Robben
    like that...
    In al honesty I actually preferred Douglas Costa to Robben but It's a preference thing I guess...

    The reason I prefer Robben over Bale is the Agility of Robben. I always feel Bale turns like a truck compared to the gliding Robben en Messi.

    If coins are available,
    Messi is the only Choice.

    The prices on FUT actually advocates the real potential of Messi in the game.

    I can afford Messi, but he will have a crap team around him. If i buy robben i can afford an awesome team around him, so gonna go for Robben.

    How likely are you to keep Messi for a long time?

    I bought Ronaldo a while back with almost all my coins because I know I'm not selling him for the rest of the game, and I've been slowly upgrading with coins I make

    Here's the team I use anyway if that helps obviously the front 3 were expensive and I had to trade for ages to get them but the rest of the team bar Iniesta is reasonably priced...

    Alves
    Danilo Godin Laporte Marcello
    Perez Busquets Iniesta
    Messi Suarez Neymar

    I would definitely recommend Laporte and Perez if you're low on coins after Messi...

    problem is i play 4231 (2) and kinds feel that messi would be wasted as RM, whereas Robben would suit the role better due to workrates.

    True...
    At RM Messi isn't that impactful..Rather wasted.
    Anyways it depends on playing style and formation that you use. If robben suits you then don't waste coins on Messi.

    But if you do get a chance, buy Messi,
    Pair him up with Tevez in 2 striker formation,
    U'll be amazed with the Argentine Venom they deliver to opponents...
