A Few Games From Greatness – Berwick Rangers – PearceyPlays #FM19 Journeyman Part 177 – OS4 C2 S3 – April 2022

Welcome to (hopefully) a League 1 Title and promotion-to-the-Championship celebrations in this post as we have 5 matches left in the 21/22 season. Five tough games (v 5th, 8th, 2nd, 6th & 7th) but we are 7 points clear at the top of the league and are now unbeaten in League-play since 30th October – […]

The Stark Reality? – PearceyPlays #FM20 Season 4 – Part 31 – Cobh Ramblers – April 2022

Simply put – We’re not good enough to be at this level yet. We got there via an astonishing spell of form over the last couple of months of the 2021 season but 2 of the main protagonists (Sammon & Evans) are now first-teamers for Shamrock Rovers, and we’re scrabbling to get the team cohesion […]

Promotion Push – Berwick Rangers – PearceyPlays #FM19 Journeyman Part 176 – OS4 C2 S3 – March 2022

This month brings us just the 3 games, versus 9th, 6th & 10th respectively – Has to be 9 points really, though we have a 4 point cushion now with 8 games left so its not essential The last 4 months have been pretty good; only the one cup loss, at Hearts, and we got […]

Honeymoon Period – PearceyPlays #FM20 Season 4 – Part 30 – Cobh Ramblers – March 2022

Welcome back to St. Colman’s Park for a (relatively) important month for Cobh. We’re playing some good football, we just need to keep picking up the points. 3 Away games after playing Derry City (6th). Galway is a must win I think, even this early on. It’s also the call before the storm – 8 […]

Make or Break? – Berwick Rangers – PearceyPlays #FM19 Journeyman Part 175 – OS4 C2 S3 – February 2022

With games versus 1st and 2nd and a Scottish Cup tie versus 3rd-in-the-Premiership Hearts all within 7 days its massively important to our season as a whole. It’s going to be tough – 5 away games in the last 8 in March & April. We’re almost […]

2021/22 Match Day 18 – PearceyPlays #FM19 Journeyman Part 171 – OS4 C2 S3 – Berwick Rangers – Albion Rovers (H) – 11th December 2021

We start today with a quick look at Barry Maguire. He’s hit the ground running – last 5 games averaging 7.23, now rated our best owned player by CA and developing a nice partnership with Jordan Bow. IRL he has 6 caps and a goal for Scotland U21’s from 2019 on! Today we face a […]
