Feet under the Table – Berwick Rangers – PearceyPlays #FM19 Journeyman Part 180 – OS5 C2 S4 – August 2022

Time to start getting under feet under this Championship table this month as we have 6 games, 5 League, 1 in the IRN-BRU Cup. So 2 really tough league games, a cup game we really should win, 2 more-winnable league games and a tough last to finish the month. Five points would be a good […]

It’s almost like watching Arsenal – PearceyPlays #FM20 Season 4 – Part 34 – Cobh Ramblers – July 2022

Welcome to July 2022. We have 5 games this month, all in the league, It’s worth discussing why (I think) the games have become like watching prime George Graham-era Arsenal, and why its working so well for us; a team that has no right being 6th after 22 games. What will July bring… Derry is […]

Operation Stay-Up, Stay Stable – Berwick Rangers – PearceyPlays #FM19 Journeyman Part 178 – OS5 C2 S4 – Post-Season 21/22 & Pre-Season 22/23 – May to July 2022

Today we will be going through the 2021/22 post-season, looking at the season just gone and all that good stuff and then moving into the 2022/23 pre-season; the wheeling and dealing, and culling, required for us to at the very least not get relegated from the Championship next season. I know this will be hard […]

Greater than the sum of our parts – PearceyPlays #FM20 Season 4 – Part 32 – Cobh Ramblers – May 2022

Welcome back to Cobh after a crazy April 2022. Seven league games, W4, D2, L1. 14 points and 8 points clear in 6th at the turn of the month. Can we maintain this form? Derry & Shamrock Rovers will be free hits, Shelbourne & Galway are key matches this season (Along with Sligo & Waterford) […]

A Few Games From Greatness – Berwick Rangers – PearceyPlays #FM19 Journeyman Part 177 – OS4 C2 S3 – April 2022

Welcome to (hopefully) a League 1 Title and promotion-to-the-Championship celebrations in this post as we have 5 matches left in the 21/22 season. Five tough games (v 5th, 8th, 2nd, 6th & 7th) but we are 7 points clear at the top of the league and are now unbeaten in League-play since 30th October – […]

The Stark Reality? – PearceyPlays #FM20 Season 4 – Part 31 – Cobh Ramblers – April 2022

Simply put – We’re not good enough to be at this level yet. We got there via an astonishing spell of form over the last couple of months of the 2021 season but 2 of the main protagonists (Sammon & Evans) are now first-teamers for Shamrock Rovers, and we’re scrabbling to get the team cohesion […]

Promotion Push – Berwick Rangers – PearceyPlays #FM19 Journeyman Part 176 – OS4 C2 S3 – March 2022

This month brings us just the 3 games, versus 9th, 6th & 10th respectively – Has to be 9 points really, though we have a 4 point cushion now with 8 games left so its not essential The last 4 months have been pretty good; only the one cup loss, at Hearts, and we got […]
