FPL Vibes was started by Fantasy League aficionados Darryl “2cents” Celestine and Omar “dinho” Romero at the start of the 2011/12 Barclays Premier League season.
The podcast was launched on the popular fan forum for Trinidad and Tobago football, Soca Warriors.net Forum as a means of discussing the ever popular Fantasy Premier League game from a Trinidadian perspective. Throughout the season, the podcast featured actively playing guests from the famous Andre Samuel League, the home of some of the strongest FPL players in Trinidad and Tobago. Guests joined in to share their views on the game, strategies, thoughts and predictions for upcoming gameweeks as well as exchange friendly picong and banter.
In addition, FPL Vibes also host the FPL Vibes Prize League where competing managers vie for monthly prizes and the impressive grand prizes on offer.
