Our style isn’t like City why?

I am not sure what Mikel was doing at City either he was a bad student or wasn’t focusing. On the hand, Vieira went to Pep for few seconds and viola, Palace are the mini City.

So my question is, why was Arteta at City for that long and we are playing like Chelsea under Mourinho?

Will we ever see the Pep version of football at Arsenal or is Pep that secretive that he never showed his blueprint to Arteta.

Worse still, maybe Mikel knows how to play Pep ball but can’t execute it yet because he doesn’t have resources or players to do that.

After all Pep inherited a successful Man City a team already in Champions League so it was easier to recruit the players he wanted.

Time will tell.

Arteta was more of a defensive coach to Pep's being an attacking coach. SImples.

"Will we ever see the Pep version of football at Arsenal"

No and no Arsenal fan should bloody well want to either. What we should be aiming for is to return to challenging in the same fashion we did before. With great football played in the opposition half most of the game. Not back and forth across the back line form 70-80% of the match.

The way City play needs to be DISCOURAGED in the game not expanded to even more teams. This whole hogging the ball among defenders until the opposition HAS to stretch to come for the ball. Making it easy to now pick their way through far weaker opposition as it was, is a "joy of footy" killing tactic. And the sooner the do something about repeated back passing to kill it off, the better. It's just "Passing it back to the goalie" but in a slightly different skin.

That way of playing killed so many of the Euros games by just backpassing the games to deathly boredom.

We need it BANNED (or at least limited), not sucking the soul out of English football even moreso than it has already.

City have better players. City have a better manager. It’s not rocket science, even for a dimwit like the OP

Tbf it takes a big personality of a manager to get success from a cash cow team. It's no good blowwing 800 mil to build squad of top draw starters, whithout getting the right manager. You basically need somebody who can be a bigger asshat than any star player.

That's why Jose was so good at Chelsea first time out. He got there and from day one he was "takin on all-comers, knockin out bums," with 1st round KOs. And to this day he is the undisputed "Chelsea's Biggest Prima Donna" CHAMP. Arrogance so legendary it's had it's own TV ad campaign, more than once

Think it's one of the reasons AW never ever took the Real job when it was offered. Even if you think Wenger's an asshat, he's not the right kind to deal with a full blown prima donna squad. He's too polite and nice.
