Used him in a 4321 as RF for 31 games and scored 11 goals...
Neymar @ LF is scoring a ton more goals...
Is it because of the M/M workrates???
Or did EA made him so bad...
If it's the last one i don't know how bad he will be on FIFA18 now its the Ronaldo Edition thing...

    I swap him to CAM in 4312/41212-2 and much prefer him in that role.

    Strange... Maybe it's his NIF card.
    I used in Draft the TOTY version and was scoring from any angle. I think it was 6 goals in 3 games...
    Also RF positition...
    Just sold his card now and maybe i try him out in a couple of days...

    Played him about 50 games RW, he was horrible. Then 200+ games in CAM, he was outstanding. Averaged a goal a game there.

    Problem is his stamina, too low, should have around 86 to be decent at Cam or rw, those positions require alot more stamina compared to strikers

    He goes missing in some games then just pops up with an amazing goal or assist. I think like others have said his stamina let's him down. And his very weak, but no touch drubbing and Crab walking his second to none. His a great player

    Stamina really lets him down.

    His TOTY had 280 goals, 100 assists in 230~ Games for me as a CF or RF. You have to use his finesse as much as possible.

    Got a 'new' NIF Messi and this one seems to play a little better...
    But indeed it's the stamina that's let us down...
    TOTY version has a ton more stamina and you can feel that.

    I said his stamina was an issue early on in the year and everyone said layoff the sprint button.

    My point was in life the guy gives it his all for 90+. I don't think they did his stamina stat any justice.

    His dribbling and finesse shot are unmatched still imo.

    No problem with my 'new' NIF i got.
    Ok his stamina is a issue but he scores now great goals and assisting a lot.
    Problem solved....

    I also found this with NIF Messi - was using him in a front 3 of Jese, Ben Yedder and Leo so was expecting him to stand out by a mile but I'm not sure if it was a case of me expecting too much from him and trying to force play through him at times or opponents singling him out as the danger man and snuffing him out.

    Was very underwelmed tbh

    Incorrect. He's a wonderful player, but he is rather conservative with his energy. I think M/L would be more realistic than M/M.

    I tried TOTY Messi and as very average player I scored good amount of goals with him but couldn't assist lol. He got like 20 goals in 30 games and 0 assist. I felt like my whole offence is running through Messi and I forgot that I have other players all over the pitch #Krasi.
