Blue to be a terrier. The proudest supporter of England's largest county only premiere league team. My club has the honor and holds the record of being the first team to win the league 3 times in a row. A record equalled BUT NEVER BROKEN. And with English players. An English club with English players. So this brings me to this question . Who was the last English team to win the the top flight ? Note I say team and not club . lucky to have one English player in a team these days let alone a manager .So which was the last team to win the league that had a majority of English players in it. Last English manager was Howard Wilkinson . And that Leeds team looking good as far as British players. How the hell have we gone from English managers and players to minority. shame on us .

Still no answer. OK by majority I mean at least six players must be English. I am guessing we will have to go as far back as the eighties.

Man City last season had John Stones, Kyle Walker, Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden, Fabian Delph and Lukas Nmecha who all played in the Premier League last season, all of whom represent England.

At some stage in the season were they all on the pitch together ? I just want England to win the world cup again. More of the millions should be invested in youth teams but still we seem to Opt for overseas players and managers.

Sorry I am not Mr national front at all. I just asked a question that I have asked before and that no one seems to be able to answer. I wish more English youth team players would be given a chance, black or white.
The England squad that has just travelled to Russia is the youngest on record.
