Clubs like Stoke and West Brom probably strike you as two of the more quintessentially English clubs in the top flight at the moment. Wrong.
It turns out that Cardiff City is the most English club in the Premiership as of 2013.
The good people of Walesonlline took a break from saying Warren Gatland was right to drop Brian O'Driscoll to embark upon this pioneering study and got the tasty headline they wished for.
It also turns out that Ireland is the 4th most represented country in the Premiership after England, France and Spain with 20 players plying their trade there. That 4 more than Scotland who lie in 5th with Wales in 6th place with 15 players.
Apparently 45% of Cardiff's players since the start of the year have been English. They have even more English players than Rangers had in the early 90s. This is compared to just 20% of the English heartland club Newcastle, who bring up the rear in the Table of Englishness.
Cardiff's Welsh brethren in Swansea have kept the flag of non-Englishness flying to some extent and they sit just above Newcastle at the foot of the table, not far behind the aggressively cosmopolitan trio of Chelsea, Man City and Arsenal. Southampton, despite their exotic manager and chairman are the 2nd most English side in the Premier League. See the table here.
