Hi lads.

We all know its the end of FIFA 21. fadding out.

I had Messi card every FIFA before FIFA 21. I tried Messi gold/ than TOTY/TOTS this year and didnt like them. Had to sell. Despite I am a big fan of his talent IRL.

Now I got only 1.3 mill coins left . If I do a bit of trading/ getting weekly rewards, I might buy him next week.
I want to use him as CAM/CF.

Well, the main question is , is MESSI SS card is the real game changer? Does he feel similar to previous year ? (Super fast and agile dribbling, deadly long shots and finess, hard to push off the ball , etc...)

If you used this SS Messi card, please leave your feedback. Highly appreciate is lads!

PS: My fav CAM/CF this year is Neymar... Gold/IF... this card is just outstanding.... I do hope SS Messi will be better than him.... really hope so.

    Is he a noticeable upgrade from the TOTS?

    I'm enjoying him a lot & correct me if I'm wrong but the 99's the strongest (in terms of strength stat) ever so yeah he's harder to bully than last year's TOTSSF.

    Thanks man. Great stuff. Looks like what I want from this card.

    Those questions sound obvious but i didnt like all previous versions of his card (despite my avatar pic)
    I hope to get him and give him a go after this WL.

    I now have his totgs and used to have his tots. I don't notice a difference. Still a great finesse shot, still have sticky dribbling.
  • Me, an aggressively average player, can’t even find him on the pitch. For me it’s no upgrade from NIF. But I never do well with the best cards. Give me PIM Ronaldo, I’ll make him a blind walrus.

    I’ve just used him for this weekend league and played 15 games with him at CAM in a 4-1-2-1-2. Don’t get me wrong he’s decent but I feel atal is just as good and free so back on the market he goes.

    I sold my totgs Messi. Was completely anonymous and outmuscled at every opportunity. I'm not a skiller though, I tryto pass with varying success. SS Isak on the other hand is a god, carried my La Liga team. Probably the only guy I'll use regularly and most were just awful in the horrible gameplay (even TOTS Valverde who I've had as a red for ages).

    Amazing card. I use him as a RCAM. Don’t forget to give him an Anchor, trust me. 89 heading, 98 jumping and 99 strength. Who ever thought Messi would one day get a card with 99 strength?

    Messi is not a top meta card this year

    Thats what I felt about him all year, with TOTY/TOTS not as good as last year Messi.

    Just hoping SS card is at least close to previous years
