Was wondering if he's fun to use this year, could I use him on the wing with a hunter or something of the sorts?

    Highest rated player in the game better be good, right ?

    999 agility and finishing.... of course he is good.

    his pace is his only downside. I use him in my team. Depending on what im playing I'll switch him out with Allesadrini each game

    I wanted to confirm, because everybody always complains about him being unusable, and I don't see his name used among the likes of Mbappe, Neymar, CR7, etc. in the game

    messi was underwhelming for me. sure he has a magic left foot but he just didn't feel responsive to me. I felt like once he beat a player on the dribble he couldn't escape the recovery. that is where neymar shines. you dribble a guy and you're gone.

    I rub my hands everytime I come against a Messi user. Have him in my back pocket every time. Haven't used him personally though.

    He’s one of the best CCAMs without doubt

    Was a general out there for me in 4411 as CF. He ran the show - for 50 mins even with stay forward. His stamina is what made me sell him otherwise i could see keeping him the whole year, but i couldnt justify hia cost for a player that doesnt last 2/3 of the game.

    Messi as CF in the 433(5) in WL:

    6 games, 5 wins
    Messi: 14 goals and 1 assists

    I guess his finishing is on point :smile: Why assist with him when he just scores everything, right ?

    And he lasts full game in the 433(5). Conservative interceptions, that´s it.

    Just got him this week, best cam imo, is passing and dribbling are sublime, shooting is one of the best, even on his right, Pace hasn’t been an issue from cam with a hunter. The only downside imo is stamina

    Yeah, that is exactly my problem with him so far. Does anyone think he "shines" on the wing? Even when I use that magical dribbling to beat the player, Mendy or Walker nearly always catch back up with him before he's in the box. Is he so good at CAM that it would be worth putting Neymar on the wing instead?

    Is it worth getting his IF or TOTGS over his NIF?

    Next goal he scores for Barca he should get a record breaker card for it so any current special cards will lose value.

    Not used him this year though, just something to be aware of

    Answering my own question, Messi is sooooooooooooooo so so much better at CAM.
