Welcome back to another instalment of my FM20 Journeyman, currently loving life at my second club, Dundalk, in my 5th Season of management.

Where Next? – PearceyPlays #FM19 Journeyman Part 189 – OS5/2023

So where to next? I’ll list out anything interesting as it comes up. I’ve put in a sneaky application for Lech Poznan (1st(!) in the Ekstraklasa in Poland – its a long story why they need a manager) but don’t expect anything back. 2nd April 2023 – Motherwell sack Brian Kerr – I might be […]

Something a little bit different to start this month – a trip to Nice on the Cote d’Azur to face an OGC Nice side that should thump us – It’s a one-off game though, can we go and do an old-fashioned FM on them?? Prior to that (On the 2nd) the usual start of month […]

Keep on Fighting – Raith Rovers – PearceyPlays #FM19 Journeyman Part 188 – OS5 C3 S1 – March 2023
