Tx, is just being mischievous and dangling a maggot on a hook. Guardiola has brought his philosophy to Manchester, Klopp has stretched hsi geggenpress over the full breadth of Anfield and yet, their being based in England seemingly anglicizes their being. English football, is tarred and feathered with a brush borrowed from Big Sam's warehouse, and what a warehouse might one add. Beloved has played some fabulous football, Cheslea, Tottenham the same, yet all are instantly written-off as less than Las Palmas as a consequence of a vendetta against English football. The question that needs to be asked is, of the 20 teams in the Premiership, who plays stereotypically English football? And of those exponents of the Bundes and La Liga variety, how many have been entered, raw by the Burnleys and West Broms?
Football cultures do not change from one man showing up at some venue. They change from the systemic work of an FA, like Germany embarked on in 2000s.
It's a bit naive to point at individual teams to justify an exception.The dominant footballing culture of the EPL is decidedly English. Right down to the refereeing.
Form is temporary; Class is Permanent!

We watched this very boring video, 500 times, of Sacchi doing defensive drills, using sticks and without the ball, with Maldini, Baresi and Albertini. We used to think before then that if the other players are better, you have to lose. After that we learned anything is possible – you can beat better teams by using tactics." Jurgen Klopp
