c. We play good-quality football, none of that 'kick over the defence' style.

d. We play good-quality football. None of that 'kick over the defence' style.


Do you think all are grammatical?
Which would you be most inclined to use?

Thank you

    Hello,

    I'm not a native, but as I'm a writer in my spare time, I'll give you my vision anyway ;)

    I wouldn't be using c or d as they don't look right.
    I wouldn't use b either, unless in a dialog. I would use a, or more likely:
    "We play good-quality football - none of that 'kicking over the defence' style"

    I'd like to read other opinions though.
