Today we travel to Stenhousemuir in a crunch game so early on in our season. We started so well in the Betfred but in the in the 2 league games so far we’ve been abysmal at the back and inadequate up top. This will be Morgyn Neill’s first game back at Stenny since his arrival […]

Today we play “The Sons of the Rock” for the first time this save, after a calamitous opening defeat by Morton. The games come thick and fast early on – Morton was 31st July, Dumbarton 3rd August, Stenny on the 7th, Dundee in the IRN_BRU/Tunnocks on the 11th, so there will be plenty of rotation […]

Carry on Pushing! – PearceyPlays #FM20 Season 3 – Part 24 – Cobh Ramblers – August 2021

3 or 4 games this month, dependent on the FAI Cup 1st Round result. Longford twice in 4 days and a 6-pointer v Cabinteely – It’s going to be a crucial month for the Ramblers. Got to be looking for at least 5 wins out of the last 7 league games to get in the […]

Today we host old adversaries Stranraer of League 2 in our 3rd Betfred Cup Group E game, knowing we need to win this and beat Clyde to stand a chance of qualification for the 2nd Round and start of the knockouts. Last season that meant a trip to Ibrox, and the money gotten from that […]
