For a while, he was Blackburn's second choice goalkeeper behind Bobby Mimms before the arrival of Tim Flowers in November 1993, and had been issued with the number 13 shirt with the introduction of squad numbers for the 1993-94 season in the FA Premier League. He made several appearances as a non-playing substitute, the last at Wembley Stadium in August 1995 when he watched from the bench as Blackburn (Premier League champions) were beaten 1-0 by Everton in the FA Charity Shield. 
Lawrie Sanchez signed Talia for Wycombe in August 2002 on a free transfer as cover for regular Wycombe goalkeeper Martin Taylor. His chance came against Bristol City after Taylor developed a back problem and he continued in goal after Taylor gashed his knee at the Wycombe's training ground. Talia then made over 100 appearances for the club, despite being sidelined when he sliced his toe with a lawn-mower in 2004  and a knee injury that side-lined him for six months in August 2006,.
