Welcome one and all to another season of FPL and the 2nd edition of the Thaiger Talk league.

Last year, we had 15 players, including regular Thaiger Talk members and guests. In the end @Athleticorightfully won the league after a strong showing all through the season. 🏆 🏆 

Check out FPL here:

And if you’d like to join, the league code is: oaugya

Kick-off is still a month away, so plenty of time to tweak your game week 1 team. See you in the league!

 

(NB - if you are new to FPL, this game is administered off-site and you’ll need to enter a username. If you wish to maintain anonymity, just make one up: Donald Duck, Johnny Jones etc)

All right folks, 23 members have signed up so far, which is a bit of a jump on last season. Still haven’t heard from:

@Poolie

@Lowseasonlover

@Athletico

@Slacker77

Looking through our new members, “Super Sicknotes” - based in Phuket by the looks of it - is quite the elite player and one to watch.

Dr. Evil and @Benroon’s InterMiNan will also be in the mix, I think.

Still 6 more days till kick off, additional players welcome.

Come on The Seasiders! 👍

Blackpool? Would love to see them back in the EPL, with Holloway as boss🏖.

Are you in FPL, @Chaimai?

Skegness Town actually.....🙂

 

I miss Ian Holloway....guaranteed to light a fire under any discussion.

 

I am in.......if I have done everything correctly. I quoted the league number so I hope so.

“I love Blackpool. We’re very similar. We both look better in the dark”. -IH 

Done. The Seasiders are in 🏖👍🏻⚽️ 
(of Skegness, not Blackpool 😁)

24 teams in the league now…

Just signed up!
 

Can the season just start already.  I've tinkered with my team at least a hundred times now 😂

Welcome aboard! 27 of us in now. 2 days to go, I can hardly wait either.

By the way... there were two sign ups last night. One a Liverpool supporter with a top 4% finish last season. Is that you? 🤔

I'm starting to get worried about all these elite players signing up. Now I know how ten Hag feels as a manager. "We ain't winning the league, but we might give the top 4 a shake". 😂

Not sure how to check top 4%, but I finished top 30kish.  

Haha, no need to be worried, I've made so many changes that i'm not even sure what i'm doing anymore.

Haha, they've looked good preseason.  But my bias won't allow me to bring any united players into my team 🤣

Actually, I miscalculated. You finished in the top 0.4% last season 😳(😫). Top 30Kish out of 9 million players. Amazing.

I’m worried despite your reassurances 🤣 Last time I got a 30K finish, Shearer and Lampard were still playing.

I think a strong defence might be the way to go this season, but I always go light at the back which is probably my downfall. 

No Man United players in my squad either.

The first game week in FPL is now done and one of our debutants - Will&Lily IX - is leading the way, after a fine score of 74. @testing22 showed that we all have something to worry about and is in 2nd spot. @spicy_girl, after occupying 6th spot all through last season, is there yet again after game week 1.

Salah did the business for most of the FPL managers, but Haaland looks an absolute beast of a striker. It may come down to who to choose as captain in many game weeks ahead.

Good luck everyone in Game Week 2 and if you're reading this @Willy&Lily IX, come and introduce yourself and let us meet the genius behind the method!

I think at this early stage just a bit of luck. Transfer panic already setting in as I think Nunez could be a serious contender for transfers in this week. Long way to go !!!!

Welcome to the forum @BKKgolfer, glad to have you on board.

A bit of luck maybe, but nonetheless well done, brilliant first week. Agreed on Nunez, normally I might go in as well, but I think I’ll hold on to my front three for a while (Kane, Jesus, Haaland).

I swapped Dewsbury-Hall for Bailey 5 minutes before the deadline, which I’m obviously regretting 🤨.

Roll on, game week 2! ⚽
