He is absolutely insane I don't understand how Ronnie is 2.5 mil and messi under a million. Admittedly I haven't used ronnie yet but messi is scoring for fun so I'm struggling to justify spending 3 times his amount on big CR7

    Yeah that heading is the main reason I'm looking at Ronaldo but 1.5million more seems crazy for a messi that can head the ball lol

    He’s gone up since last week but generally low because it’s la liga and they don’t have great cm’s. Also he’s a bit weak. Still a good card though

    Had Ronaldo on drafts. He is great, and well rounded.

    Have Messi in my UT and he is great too. Him at ST and Messi cam would be a wonderful pair. They both equally get into positions and beat defenders that the other cant.

    I think Ronaldo has the inflated price due to previous FIFAs putting so much emphasis on physical, it has carried over.
  • I've bought Messi twice and sold twice, he is amazing, easily the best player I've used BUT he is so hard to build around, La Liga is quite boring/limited in terms of players to use, usually consists of Real or Barca with the odd Griezmann thrown in..

    I used hybrids around him when I had him and there is always one or two players thrown in solely to accommodate Messi, got fed up with it after a while.

    I dont think there is a lot of love for Dembele, Rakitic, Busquets when you want to hybrid, only really found Suarez as an option.

    Stamina

    Means nothing. I play Messi CAM every game the whole game including ET

    Does anyone even know how a low stamina bar affects a player? is it speed? Is it shot? Is it dribbling?

    Messi and all players can still do exactly the same thing whether their stam bar is full or empty

    I got Messi untradeable at the weekend, as good as he is I wouldn't pay 800-900k for him personally. Probably because thats all the coins I have, but when you compare him to POTM Reus, Reus is much better imo. In game he's thay little bit quicker, his shots feel more powerful and he seems to be better positioned for me

    You need to know how to use messi versus you need to press circle

    Ronaldo has been carrying average and sub average players for years
