History of EliteFPL
Back then it was some fun, there was no direct rules of squad selection other than, you can pick whoever you like that fitted in an eleven man team and a realistic formation and that was it. The points scoring system was simple, I just stole the newspapers points system, simplified to goals scored, clean sheet and whoever the paper chose as their MAN OF THE MATCH. I can’t specifically remember the exact points but would be something like for goal scoring, defenders 6pts, Mids 5, Striker 4. After (what we now call) the ‘gameweek’ OR gw as its popularly written as, Steve-O would total up the points of each team. He would then Email the guys participating how well they were doing and construct the league table.
After a period of several GWs various people were commenting asking if we had a ML, of course we hadn’t, Jason set one up for our YouTube viewers, and the ML took off from there. The main subject matter for our shows always revolved around the Torbay Elite ML, but by roughly GW20 we then started discussing what was happening in The Elite FPL one, especially as some of the players were doing so well, ie Jack Gleeson. At which point we decided interacting with the YouTube audience, to what we have now (July 2019) a regular call in show having people from the FPL community joining us from all around the world talking fantasy football.
