With the successes of the England youth set ups this year, was wondering if we're finally reaping the fruits of the football media explosion in England in the 90's?

A pretty flimsy assumption, but after 1990 World Cup, Sky's wall to wall coverage from 93 and then Euro 96, you wonder whether this has generated more interest in children. And with top football being so accessible with a flick of a button, maybe the kids are getting more clued up tactically and technically than generations before? Maybe producing a better class of coaches now too?

Just hearing Stuart Pearce talk last night, the one thing that has shocked him this summer in all the tournaments has been the technical abilities of the English kids that look more like something you'd see from the Spanish or Italians.

Are we seeing the end of our good traditional English cloggers?
