Newbie again...what's a traditional english style?
In a single word: garbage.
English play style has no use for midfielders because they rather just have the defensive backs kick the ball 70 yards up the field straight to the attacking players. Of course this never works at the International level, thus why England always disappoints in tournaments. It's a very rudimentary play style with no imagination. Not every team in the EPL plays this way, and the best teams obviously do have good midfielders and try to avoid this play style as much as possible though.
Funny thing is, the EPL up until recently was no different than any of the other European leagues, they had a couple of powerhouses and a bunch of fodder. With all the new TV deals the EPL was able to secure with American cable networks that changed, pretty much every team has money now. But I hate the way they play football in that league and refuse to watch that **** league.
Paul Pogba, Eden Hazard, David Silva, N'golo Kante, Nemanja Matic, Philippe Countinho, Kevin De Bruyne, Mesut Ozil, Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Riyad Mahrez, Wayne Rooney disagrees.
There are also a few names, a tier below the top guys such as Aaron Ramsey, Yaya Toure (he's here now), Ander Herrera, Henrik Mkhitaryan, Ilkay Gundogan, Cesc Fabregas (he's here now too), Sadio Mane, Ross Barkley, Jordan Henderson who would also disagree. All (except maybe Andre Herrera) are representing their national teams and all are top quality.
And then there are new guys like Mohamed Salah, Bernardo Silva, Tiemou Bakayoko, Davy Klaasen. Those guys are vital to their previous clubs' success themselves, and are now in the PL.
I don't think there's any other league in the world that can say they can sport a crop of midfielders this talented in one league.
(and I may have forgotten a few more names)
