Player Review

94 - Normal
After the Patch - Awful.
By Mattybraps, 08-03-2020

So I'll start this review with a bit of context. Around November, I decided to quit FUT because this game is deplorable in every way, shape and form. However, a couple months later I logged on and opened an untradeable pack, and out comes Messi. Naturally, this was an excuse for me to get back into FUT. Messi was brilliant, averaging around 2 goals and an assist per game in his first 20, and got me back into FUT. However, with Title Update 12, something happened. My once great Messi now averages about 2 dribbles and 5 passes a game, and I've begun subbing him off for Dan James around the 60th minute. I can't actually remember the last time he contributed to a game and Dan James is years ahead. The once great dribbling now feels clunky due to servers and as a result, it is not viable to use Messi anymore. Save your coins and buy a much better player eg Mbappe, Ben Yedder.

Dribbling - When the servers aren't being disgusting, he can dribble

Shooting - If you get it on his left peg and a couple yards of space, it's over

Strength - gets bodied by the wind

Passing - never picks out the right one

Stamina - spent by the 60th minute

Goes missing sometimes

Why Messi could be the pinnacle of FIFA 20

Messi feels like the most complete Attacker in the game. Unbelievable Ball control, pace, passing, and shooting. He slots in perfectly to the META of this current FIFA. In previous versions his size and physical stats inhibited him, but not this time around. Its very hard to lose the ball with him and when playing a possession style of play he dominates. Seems like a no brainer to say if you have the chance, buy this card!

Best Card in FUT20!

So I was lucky enough to pack an untradeable TOTY Alisson and a tradeable TOTY Messi Last Thursday.As I wanted to try Politano and Malcuit on the right side first, I needed to change the team a bit. I didn't want to cut IF Varane so playing Mendy on 7 chem was necessary.Playing an ingame 4-2-3-1 with Messi on CAM, this card is simply INSANE!30 games of Weekend League Mode with asto...

The little magician

On Wednesday night look fell my way. Expecting Ocampus I skipped the walkout bit but saw a flash of the Barca badge and went mental, just like my opponents for Messi's first 11 games. I played him Cam in 4231 in game and he was by miles the best player I have ever used. His finesse shots are just another level along with his finishing and free kicks. His passing is just incredible - never intercepted. Dribbling is ju...
