Yes, Barcelona, Dortmund and Lazio… Welcome back to Co. Louth for a September that see us play Barcelona & Lazio, whilst trying to win a league Cup and (hopefully) being crowned League Champions.

Balkan Bonanza – PearceyPlays #FM20 OS7 C2 S3 – Part 65 – Dundalk – July 2025

Welcome back to the start of our 3rd European Campaign with Dundalk (Not counting the FCSB and OGC Nice games we had in the Conference League knockouts as I wasn’t involved in the Conference League Group stages). Only 6 games currently in July – don’t think that will change but who knows. St. Pat’s first …

Shamrock, Shamrock, Shamrock – PearceyPlays #FM20 OS7 C2 S3 – Part 64 – Dundalk – June 2025

Welcome back to Dundalk for an important month for our 2025 season. After Longford and the International break we have 5 hard games, mainly without our best U21 players who will be at the Euro’s. I doubt Waterford, Shamrock or ST. Pat’s will be without any players (Waterford will be withouth Barry O’Leary, but he …

Welcome back to Dundalk for Part 62 of my FM20 Journeyman. I’ve fallen in love with Dundalk – we are so much more than the sum of our parts and have got the chance to get to the Europa League Semi Finals if we can get past Roma over 2 legs. After Beating Bayer 04 …

Bayer 04 – PearceyPlays #FM20 OS7 C2 S3 – Part 61 – Dundalk – March 2025

Welcome back to a March 2025 that could potentially see us into the Europa League Quarter Finals in mid-April (Which would be mad!) We will be putting a (very) young side out for the Bohs game before we host Bayer 04 on the 6th. Firstly the start of the month stuff. We have almost £22M …

Can he do it on a cold rainy night in Zagreb in February? – PearceyPlays #FM20 OS7 C2 S3 – Part 60 – Dundalk – February 2025

Welcome back to the start of the 2025 Irish season, with a tough few games before the end of the month. St. Pats, who finished 2nd last season will be a tough test in our 2nd game, and then the 2-legger versus Dinamo to get to the 2nd Knockout Round. I fancy our chances. We …
