I'm sad about it too, but I'm going to finish the season and do a career summary, then take a few weeks to play about with tactics before I come back with a new career thread. I've been playing FM and CM before it since the very start in the early 1990s, I'm not going to let it beat me (yet)

OK that's what I wanted to see :applause:

And with that, my career comes to an end. I've done something a little different this time and created a Wikipedia-style page for myself to summarise my career

Jamie Sheehan[2]  born 1979), known as Jamie Sheehan,is an English football manager, who is currently the manager of Championship club Cardiff City. He is one of a growing number of top-level managers who have never played football professionally.[3]

Highlights in his career include winning promotion in his debut season managing his boyhood club, Plymouth Argyle, taking them out of League Two as Champions in 2020. After joining Peterborough United in 2020, he narrowly missed out on promotion in his first season, before getting them promoted as League 1 runners up in 2022. A move to Cardiff City followed.

 

Early life and career[edit]

Jamie Sheehan was born in Truro,[8] and never made the grade as a professional footballer, but did obtain coaching badges up to UEFA A before joining Plymouth Argyle, and completed his Pro Licence at Peterborough

 

Managerial career[edit]

Plymouth Argyle

At the start of the 2019/20 season, Sheehan was appointed as manager of Plymouth Argyle, the team he supports, to replace the outgoing Ryan Lowe. He won promotion from League 2 in his first season as manager, and they were just three points adrift of the League 1 playoffs when Peterborough agreed a compensation deal with Argyle to take him as their new manager

 

 

Peterborough United

Peterborough were two places above Argyle in the League 1 table when Sheehan took over, which meant they were in the playoff places with just over half the season gone.  They would remain in the playoffs for the rest of the 2020/21 season, falling at the semi final stage. Promotion would follow in 2021/22, as Peterborough finished runners-up to Shrewsbury Town, missing out on the title on goal difference. Peterborough were 17th in the Championship, with 12 points from 13 matches, when Jamie Sheehan departed to become the new manager of Cardiff City

 

Cardiff City

 

Cardiff confirmed the appointment of Jamie Sheehan as their new manager on a two-year contract with immediate effect on 21 September 2022. He arrived with the club bottom of the Championship, five points behind his former team. They would end his first season in charge having reached the quarter finals of the FA Cup for the first time since their appearance in the 2008 Final, and not only having secured safety, but finishing in the top half. 2023/24 would begin with Cardiff having ambitions to put last season’s struggles behind them, and targeting a playoff place at the very least, with long term ambitions to reclaim a place in the Premier League, which they last graced in 2022. It wasn’t to be, and Sheehan left the club on 15January 2024, with Cardiff occupying a Championship playoff place with just over half the season gone.

Fulham

Fulham appointed Sheehan as manager on 15 January 2024, with the club 19th in the Premier League. He couldn’t prevent relegation, but oversaw an immediate return by winning the Championship in 2025. He moved on that summer.

Arsenal

Sheehan joined Arsenal in July 2025. He led them to a 5th placed finish in the Premier League, before departing for Dortmund.

Borussia Dortmund

Sheehan joined Borussia Dortmund in June 2026, and narrowly missed out on the title in his first season, finishing behind Schalke on goal difference. The same fate would befall them in the following season, and Sheehan announced in April 2028 that he’d be moving on at the end of the season.

Manchester City

Sheehan joined Man City just days after leaving Dortmund. He led Man City to a third placed finish and Champions League qualification in his first season, before leading them to a Premier League and FA Cup Double the next season, missing out on a Treble by losing the Champions League final to Manchester United. That would prove to be his Man City swansong, as over the summer, he was appointed the national manager of England

England

Sheehan led England to the Nations League knockout stages in 2030, finishing top of the group after beating Italy at Wembley. He went on to lift the Nations League, before an embarrassing second round European Championships defeat to Norway saw him sacked.

Italy

Just one week after Jamie Sheehan was dismissed by England, he was appointed Italy manager, succeeding Roberto De Zerbi, who led the Azzurri to the European Championship title. His time with Italy would be brief but memorable, as he won the World Cup before deciding on a return to club management.

Real Madrid

After the World Cup, Jamie Sheehan joined Real Madrid. He led them to a second placed finish in La Liga in his only season in charge, announcing his retirement towards the end of the season.

Personal life[edit]

Not much is known about Jamie Sheehan’s personal life. He confirmed in his press conference when he was appointed as Plymouth Argyle manager that he is a supporter of the Pilgrims, but very little other information is available
