Welsh legend Mel Charles joins us on the latest episode of the EPL Talk Podcast, the only Premier League interview show on the Internet.
Charles is a legend in Welsh football and the brother of John Charles. Mel played for Arsenal during the late 1950’s and early 1960’s — as well as playing for Wales in the 1958 World Cup where the team got knocked out of the tournament after losing to Brazil in the quarter-final (where Mel Charles came up against a certain player named Pele).
Hear about Mel Charles’s book “In The Shadow of a Giant.” Also discussed:
- The 1958 Welsh World Cup Team
- Who was the best attacking player Charles faced
- His brother John’s career
- The Cardiff City vs Swansea City rivalry
- Thoughts about John Toshack both as a player and a manager.
If you’re a fan of football and you’re interested in hearing about how the game used to be, this is a must-listen interview with one of the legends of Welsh football (and interestingly a relative of Toby Charles).
