Messi and Bale.

It occurred to me yesterday, that not many 'competitive' FIFA players use Messi.

It's predominantly Gareth Bale, or on some occasions, G. Best.

Why is this?

    Im guessing its because Messi is forced off the ball alot easier than say Bale Best or Ronaldo - Thats the Best guess i can come up with (No Pun Intended)

    Also Bale links to Ronaldo on a green when Messi is orange

    It's his strength and workrates gets the ball taken off him so easily.

    They all follow each other sometimes with some stupid ideas like you can only play one blue in your team or your team will start playing badly :joy: Toty Messi was one of if not the best player in the game last year. Lot of the good players on here like @AlexSolm @evo also rated him as the best card on the game.

    Definitely the best for me last year, this year he's amazing too, I'm sure he'll be more popular once his price stabilizes and once we get some special version with better strength.

    Yup with that physical close to 80 his blue was absolutely unplayable .. Im going so far to say my favourite UT card ever with what he gave me over 1000+ games..

    I wont be buying his blue this year, I dont wanna spend 2.5+ on him again. 800k is enough.

    The thing about Messi is that he's unstoppable when things are going your way and the connection is flawless. But if you aren't playing well or there is a bit of lag then it's very hard to get the best out of him. A player such as CR7/Bale can still steam through defences whether the sun shines or not.

    Pretty sure it's the fact that you can't really dribble well in this game, speed dribbling is about as close as we get to proper dribbling. If you try to dribble through, chances are a defender is going to smash into you at 45 miles an hour and strip the ball off you.

    The finishing of Messi is outstanding but the combination of M/M and no strength is really annoying. I went for Ronaldo and Bale upfront with Rui Costa behimd them. Maybe I go for Messi behind them, but so far Rui Costa is worldclass. Probably because he has the strength Messi don't have.
