Arthur is a Performance Analyst a career he started from his love of Football Manager and past researching experience for SI to help create the game he loves.

Born and raised in the picturesque town of Sheffield, Alfie grew up surrounded by the echoes of football chants and the aroma of freshly brewed tea. His love for the game blossomed as he kicked a worn-out ball against the cobbled streets, dreaming of managing a team to glory.

It was a rough night for Arthur who had just been on the bus parade with the team and joined in the celebrations through town, as he drives down Hanover Way in the city centre Arthur has unknowingly received an email for a potentially new opportunity.

Hannover 96 finished the 2022/23 season in 10th position and a poor showing in the DFB-Pokal, the 91-92 DFB-Pokal winners have decided to take a fresh approach going forward with Stefan Leitl leaving the club with immediate effect.

"The journey of Hannover 96 with Stefan has been in many ways unique and always as a team. In the football industry, journeys come to an end and now is that time, which we both agree.

"The mutual respect we have for each other is immense on a personal and professional basis and I offer my sincere thanks for the dedication and commitment Stefan has given to our club."

“We’re looking for our next appointment to have a big short-term impact, but also to fit with our longer-term strategy of building an attack-minded, progressive style of football over a number of seasons.”

One crisp morning, as the mist clung to the Yorkshire hills, Arthur returned him to learn he had received an email that would change everything. The subject line read, “Opportunity Knocks: Hannover 96.” His heart skipped a beat. Hannover—a name that resonated across Europe, a club steeped in history and ambition.

Arthur’s hands trembled as he clicked open the message. The words danced before his eyes: Dear Mr. Beardsworth,

We have been following your career closely. Your pragmatic approach, your flat cap philosophy—it intrigues us. Hannover 96 seeks a fresh perspective, a touch of Yorkshire grit.

Would you consider joining our ranks?

Arthur’s mind raced. Hannover 96—the 2. Bundesliga, the roar of the HDI Arena, the promise of new challenges. Could he leave behind the cobbled streets of Sheffield?

He brewed a strong cup of tea—the elixir of decision-making. The flat cap sat on the kitchen table, its brim casting a shadow over the job offer. The beard twitched, as if urging him forward.

He imagined himself in Hannover, the River Leine winding through the city, fans clad in green and white. Could he adapt to German football, the language, the culture? Would his flat cap find a new home?

Arthur’s wife, Dorothy, entered the room. She knew the signs—the furrowed brow, the contemplative beard strokes. “What’s troubling you, love?”

He handed her the email. Dorothy read it, her eyes widening. “Hannover 96? Arthur, this is a chance of a lifetime!”

“But Sheffield—” he began.

Dorothy placed a hand on his. “Yorkshire will always be in your heart. But adventure awaits. Think of the bratwurst, the Bundesliga anthems, the thrill of a foreign pitch.”

Arthur nodded. He pictured himself on the sidelines, the flat cap defying the German winds. The beard would whisper tactics in a new language.

He penned his reply: Dear Mr Kind,

Your offer intrigues me. Let’s talk.

And so, Arthur Beardsworth embarked on an unexpected journey. The flat cap sat snugly in his suitcase, and the beard rustled with anticipation. Yorkshire would understand—the call of football echoed across borders.

As the plane touched down in Hannover, Arthur looked out at the unfamiliar landscape. The River Leine flowed, and somewhere in the crowd, fans awaited their new manager.

He adjusted his flat cap, squared his shoulders, and stepped into the next chapter. Hannover 96—the name now etched alongside Yorkshire Rovers in his footballing tale.

And as the mist cleared, Arthur Beardsworth felt the thrill of possibility. The beard nodded approvingly.

Mid Season Review

It's been a tough first half of the season for Arthur and Hannover with the team being considered the Draw merchants of the division with 9 draws in the first 17 games leading the board to wanting a discussion with Arthur about the teams performances.


The first half leaving Hannover sitting in 10th place in the table Arthur needed to bring in fresh faces during the January window and before the end of the mid season break. In came Mohammed Bamba for £1mill from Hapoel Rishon LeZion in Isreal.


and Goalkeeper Gentian Selmani from Laci for £250k.


The board have given Arthur a month to turn the clubs fortunes around, can the bearded one see the month out and turn the clubs fortunes around?
