The Goat
By Labbisch, 12-11-2020

First off: I really love Messi in real life, thats the main reason I bought this card. I already had his normal card and as soon as I saw his Inform I knew I had to get him. I played him as right striker next to Joao Felix (sick card btw) in the 4-4-2. I´m an average Division 2/Gold 2 Player.

-Pace: I mean he isn´t the fastest player and probably not what you are searching if you are playing full drop back and counter attack, but as I am playing a very offensive and tiki taka like playstyle the accelaration is far more important for me than the sprint speed. His acceleration being this high you can easily do a fake shot stop and just burst through defenders.


-Shooting: This is the main difference I noticed between the gold and the totw card, his gold card seemed to miss some shots I thought he should score, but this card doesn´t miss. I´ve used Ronaldo, Mbappe and Neymar and imo Messi is better than all of them especially when you consider his finesse shot.


-Passing: As I already mentioned i like to play many passes and I looooves Messi´s passing. He just can´t miss a pass, doesn´t matter if it´s on his right or left


-Dribbling: His dribbling is just cracked. When you hold R1 and do some close dribbling with him you can litterally walk through defenders and he doesn´t seem to lose the ball.


-Weak Foot: Obviously with this year Weak Foot not being that important you would expect him to score with his right, but he nearly feels like he has 5* Weak Foot, because of his crazy shooting and passing.

-Physical: Of course he isn´t strong and won´t score headers, but you don´t need those stats as his crazy dribbling compensates for his lack of strength.


-Stamina: This is the only real problem I had with this card as when you like to use Team Press he is gonna be tired at the 70-80th minute and needs to be subbed out unless you play him at CAM where he can definetely play the full 90min.


-Skills: Of course for a god tier card you´d like him to have 5* skills, but as I already said you can just left stick dribble with him and it´s probably gonna be more effective than skills most of the time.


Price: Of course 1.8mil (time of writing this review but got him for 1.6 earlier on thursday) is a lot to pay for just one card, but I still think he is worth it as he is just crazy good.

Hes just...wow
By eronsyla, 21-11-2020

Never played with Messi or someone as good as him (except Draft) and got him as a red.

His movement and first touch is out of this world and with a hunter on him pace is not a big problem. He also saved me lots of wins because almost every shot he makes is a goal (other than Trashford...). When i changed Rashford for Mertens it got even way better.


Conclusion: If u dont need pace or 5 star dribbling you should buy him as he makes an excellent cam or even st because he´s one of those guys who can win you important games. But beware that you should try to include his base card first because its much cheaper.

  • His passing of course... It was reall hard for my opponents to intercept them
  • His dribblng: His Skill-Moves arent as good as Neymar, but with holding rb near the goal its really hard to defend him without causing a penalty
  • His shootig: He makes goals like he just does them for fun (You should use his left foot as he "only" has 4 WF). 70 goals in 50 games (only WL)
  • hes not big so u actually wont make lots of headers with him
  • he only 4 star weak foot and dribbling and hes not as fast as Neymar or Mbappe wich makes him more predictable
  • His Price: Hes x2 the price of his base card so if u dont need him because of his position change hes not worth it
  • His stamina is not a big problem but in extra time he wouldn´t help u as much as before

The GOAT
By Beeeiz, 29-11-2020

I was lucky enough to pack this guy from my TOTW pack, built a squad around him not expecting way too much as people said he isn't that good, but after using him for a while I can feel free to deny the fact he is bad. Man scores every shot he takes and is impossible to take the ball off, if you don't need 5 star skills or weak foot this is one of the best, if not the best player you can buy. 10
