Watching a shit team is a rite of passage for any football fan. It builds camaraderie, brings out the gallows humour, and, eventually, eventually, you end up remembering it all kind of fondly. But have you ever had to watch a team as bad as Wales under Bobby Gould? Elis James has.
The fifth episode of the second series of the MUNDIAL-produced Spotify Originals series of audio documentaries, sees Owen Blackhurst hand over hosting giants for James to relive the worst – yet also in a weird way, the best – moments from Gould’s four years managing the Welsh national team from 1995 to 1999.
Also featuring Ryan Giggs, now-manager and then-player under Gould, and Nicky Wire from the Manic Street Preachers, James sums up the experience neatly in his opening monologue: “We were shit.
“Not like when Brazil were shit, losing 7-1 to Germany in the semi-final of the World Cup. Not even like when England were shit because they missed out on USA 94. I mean, watch-the-telly-through-your-fingers shit.”
