Seems to me, since Pep came to this country the styl of play in the England team has changed to the same style. We are more creative and brave in attacking, the players he picks are players with finesse and actual talent. (As opposed to just any big name from Utd/Liv/Ars) I remember when Southgate first started and he was picking Stones in defence (Despite his errors at that time) becuase of his ability to play from the back. In fact there was Hart as well at the time (And a few others) and the style changed noticeably to the way City play, I remember saying at the time that they're copying City! Since then, England have really pressed on with playing this more creative and attractive football and the team are definately improving, I expect them to be getting to quarters and semi's again in future. My question though is do you think Pep has altered the style of our international team. And do you think City will actually get the recognition for changing the face of the footballing landscape in this country? Remember, without City spending the money, investing in the actual talent that could play that way, bringing in Pep, setting up a template for how to run a club... Without all that we would still be watching Utd hoofball and its various incarnations throughout the premier. Liverpool for example wouldnt have spent and bought the actual talent they have without City doing what we did last season.
