PearceyPlays #FM20 Season 2 Post 19 – We go again!!! – Cobh Ramblers – Pre-Season 2021

Yes, We’re here for another season, and I’m hoping we can really push on towards the playoffs this time round, whilst (trying) not to bankrupt the club. We’re at the start of a pre-season where we have 5 friendlies; 3 easy, 1 a bit harder v rivals Cobh Wanderers and a tough one v senior […]

Tough at the Top? PearceyPlays #FM19 Journeyman Part 135 – OS3 C2 S2 P34 – Berwick Rangers – League 2 Match Day 24 – Stenhousemuir (H) 30th January 2021 15:00

It’s a tough one today, at Home to a Stenhousemuir side second in the pile. That said its a lovely position to be in – they’ve got to come at us, and we will get some gaps at some point. Before we get to the game the usual few bits. Our U18’s beat Tranent U18’s […]

PearceyPlays #FM20 Season 2 Post 18 – We go again? – Cobh Ramblers – End of Season 2020

So we have completed the 2020 Season, our first full one, with a Cobh Ramblers team that inspires joy & rage in equal measure. I’m really waiting on Shelbourne to see if they get promoted – if not I’m pretty sure the Manager’s job will become available there. If it isn’t there just isn’t much […]

PearceyPlays #FM20 Season 2 Post 17 – Nothing to play for (But Pride) – Cobh Ramblers – October 2020

That’s the problem with the end of season – nothing to play for, uninterested players… A little bit of professionality wouldn’t go amiss. Before i go through all the figures from an up-and-down September I’ve been offered a new contract – 1 year, same wage (£300/wk). I’ve asked for a delay, and will most probably […]

PearceyPlays #FM19 Journeyman Part 134 – OS3 C2 S2 P33 – Berwick Rangers – League 2 Match Day 23 – Brechin City (H) 23rd January 2021 15:00

PLAYER LEAVING Liam Watt is off to Brechin on a free (We are contributing £35/wk for the rest of the season). He just didn’t fit in with our plans going forward and frees up some more wage budget. He played 17 games for Berwick, 4 this, scoring 3 goals and making 5 assists. a good […]

PearceyPlays #FM20 Season 2 Post 16 – Up for the Cup! – Cobh Ramblers – September 2020

Welcome back to another instalment in my FM20 Career with a Cobh Ramblers side that are belying expectations left, right and centre. We’ve not lost since 22nd May, but this month is our toughest yet, 3 games in 6 days, 2 league games against very good First Division teams plus a cup Quarter Final against […]

PearceyPlays #FM19 Journeyman Part 133 – OS3 C2 S2 P32 – Berwick Rangers – League 2 Match Day 22 – Peterhead (A) 13th January 2021 19:30

Today we have a Wednesday evening match up at Peterhead, for us a 4 hour + drive to the Balmoor Stadium. We are still in the midst of the transfer window, so there are a few bits before the match to go through. Brilliant news, as Kieran extends his contract until the end of the […]

PearceyPlays #FM20 Season 2 Post 15 – New Boys Settling In – Cobh Ramblers – August 2020

Another good month in July – 5 points as expected, only 1 goal conceded but 2 0-0’s – we will need to keep an eye on our attacking output. A tough month coming up, 2 league matches (one eminently winnable, 1 v’s the league leader) and the toughest FAI Cup 1st Round we could have […]

PearceyPlays #FM19 Journeyman Part 132 – OS3 C2 S2 P31 – Berwick Rangers – League 2 Match Day 21 – East Fife (H) 9th January 2021 15:00

Today we look to continue our superb form versus a tough East Fife side, and we will continue through the transfer window. A very strong U18’s team beat Heriot Watt Uni Res 4-0, goals from Lewis Allan & a Kieran McGrath hat-trick. This seems to be a bug – I wanted to extend Sean’s loan […]

PearceyPlays #FM20 Season 2 Post 14 – Cobh Ramblers – Core Strength – July 2020

June was a very good month, 4 points from 6 in the league and our first silverware. Over the course of the next 4 months we only have 10 league games and the potential for 5 FAI Cup games if we can somehow get to the final. The added carrot there for the winner is […]
