I've been playing WL, and my icons are pretty useless against some of the teams people have now. (Not complaining btw, good luck to you guys)
I see icons as a bit of a fantasy team but in reality some/most just can't compete with the top players available to buy and get through sbc. Even my beloved Alan Shearer is being dominated by stronger faster CB's.
I know they are useful to get full chem on players but when I look at the stats, they are hugely inferior to most teams I come up against.
I've not played many weekend leagues, and i tip my hat to anyone who does this every week,
I accept i'm not very good, but my players don't help, turning, tackling, running shooting etc etc.I understand that at times everyone rages at their players for not doing what they are asked to, but to me it appears to be happening every game in WL.
I enjoy playing with icons, but a lot of the time they just ain't up to it. Hello transfer market.
