English teams in the Champions League Semi-final?

Three English teams were through to the semi final of the Champions League!!!. Most British Newspapers screamed similar headlines, but wait a minute, English teams? Can you consider team managed by a Scotsman, an Israeli, and a Spaniard  and squads with less than half are foreigners truly English?. Take Man U for a start, only a handful are Englishmen in Scholes, Rooney, Brown and Carrick. Liverpool is no better with Gerrard and Carragher. Chelsea is similar with Lampard, A. Cole, J. Cole,and Terry . But Arsenal took the cake with only Theo Walcott and the manager is a Frenchman. The Headline should be altered “Three English based team in the semis” No wonder the England national team is suffering.
