So, somehow I managed to pull the goat in one of the new cracked LaLiga player picks, and I fucking went mental when I saw I got the GOAT, his stats are no joke, he is an absolute monster in-game, he's obviously very very expensive at 4 million coins, but even that is worth it in my opinion, he is just so good in game.
The first thing I immediately noticed was how massive the physical boost was, the 85 strength was really showing, I wasn't boosting his strength but even still it surprised me how strong he was, compared to his regular gold card.
His pace is incredible, the pace burst you get from the 97 acceleration is crazy, you can make varane and mendy your bitch with his pace, I used a catalyst chem style to boost sprint speed also so this probably helped.
His shooting is obviously top notch, easy finesse shots from outside the box, and if you're inside the box, you're not missing.
His passing I didn't really try much, I played him as a striker so there wasn't many opportunities where I could go for through balls or something.
Moving back to the physical, which I think really shines the most in this card, he just feels so much stronger than any other messi card I've used, the stamina boost is great (91 stamina).
Overall while the goat is expensive, it's the goat and he is always worth it, probably the best card i've used in FIFA.
Pace, especially acceleration
Very good passing
Much better physicals
I don't really think there any big cons, probably only the aggression.
I have used lots and lots of strikers this fifa including eusabio, pele etc and this messi card is the best I've had by far!!! I have to recommend this card for anyone! Well worth the coins.
The squad i was using around him https://www.futbin.com//21/squad/8252280. He is my first good red pick this year, my red pick luck is awful this year besides Neymar 92. But talking about the rewiew, im going to be the most honest possible. This guy is one of the best cam's in the game, and has the deadliest finnese shot in the whole game. U could just fire up the shot from 30 yards, which is insane. But in all honestly, 4 milion coins for a 4 star 4 star card just makes me fell disrespectfull and making me think that he is not worth the pricetag, but at the same time, 99 dribling (idk if i spelled that wrong im not good at English) 99 shooting, makes me want to say that he is worth the pricetag. I would say 4 mil is a bit 2 much, but since i got him for free just for hitting Elite, im defo not complaining, bc he might be the cam for me, before i get Cruyff and play Cantona at Cam
super deadly finesse shot
one of the best Cams in the game
bad price for a card that is 4 star 4 star
This card is not a bad card. I am saying what I say in terms of price/performance. He is not worth that money. I was expecting to be much faster but he is not. When he pass the defender with dribbling, the opponent's defense catches up him very easy. He is very fragile, unable to physically fight the defender. He can dribble very well and his finishing is phenomenal. Best finisher I've tried. He is a copy of pim dalglish with good passing. Im saying bad things about him cuz he is not worth for 3 million. I think its value should have been 1.5m. As you understand im not saying he is bad. He is just not worth it.
-Elite level finisher (like r9, eusibio, cruyff)
-Dribble very well
-Stamina is enough
