Who is Wally Gould?

Walter "Wally" Gould is an English former footballer who made nearly 300 appearances and scored 71 goals in the Football League playing as a winger or forward for Sheffield United, York City and Brighton & Hove Albion. He later played for Durban United and Hellenic in South Africa. Wally Gould arrived on the Stoke City coaching staff at the start of the 1977–78 season to team up with George Eastham who had become manager. He was reserve team coach when Cyril Lea resigned in New Year 1980. Wally then stepped up to be number two to Alan Durban. He subsequently served Richie Barker when he became manager, but left in March 1982. There were rumoured to be differences between Gould and some of the senior players at this time, with one `training ground incident` resulting in Ray Evans, the captain, being suspended for two weeks. Days later Gould was replaced by Bill Asprey.
