PearceyPlays #FM20 Season 2 Post 13 – Cobh Ramblers – A Change is as good as a Rest – June 2020

So, where to start? Last month was really tough – we should have gotten points in 3 out of the 4 league games, 3 dodgy penalties against… I’m going to have to make changes plus have a think about next steps, be it with Cobh or without. Firstly lets have a quick look at the […]

Merry Christmas 2020!! Seany-Boy is on hell of a run of form. 14 goals in 9 games (inc. 2 Friendlies). Absolutely deadly.

PearceyPlays #FM20 Season 2 Post 11 – Cobh Ramblers – The struggle is real – April 2020

Welcome back to Cobh for a bumper month of action. I wish I were so chipper, but I’m beginning to see this club can only really be a stepping stone to a slightly better club. There’s no money or prospect of there being any in the foreseeable, and if the lads don’t switch one the […]

PearceyPlays #FM20 Post 10 – Cobh Ramblers – Into the meat-and-drink – March 2020

March 2020. League Games 4 through 7 of 27. A realistic points total for the month is 5/12 (Draws with Drogheda & Bray, Win v Athlone – Shelbourne is a free hit but not expecting anything) – that would leave us W-D-L 2-4-1, 10 points from 6 games (Last season Cobh had 4 points from […]
