Big name premier league players quite often fail as managers at smaller clubs in the championship and league 1 or 2 because they try and get players at those clubs who aren't up to playing at the level the manager is used to working at and who are incapable of achieving the managers ambitions in the style of play the manager would like.
You've simply got to know and accept the players you have at your disposal and find a way of playing they are capable of achieving for you.
Give Dick Spurs Liverpool or City players and he might be able to achieve his ambitions with his ideal style but with what he's inherited at Arsenal you've got to find a style that they can handle.
It's irrelevant now Why he inherited such a poor squad because that's in the past the only thing that mattes between now and the season ending is finding a compromise that works between what Dick wants and what the current players can deliver.

With fixtures like these, it wrong that I mostly just ask myself, by how much wire will lose. I feel like we’re a world away.

Agree Alex we are a long long way away but every journey begins with first step, it's a difficult but not impossible job, we need to find a way for these players to play.

Arsenalex, don't try and judge us against citeh, they are the current champions, have the best manager in the world and are three years into their project. We are no even out of the blocks in comparison.

G62, is it not better for dick to continue to play his way in order to see what players to keep and who to let go. If he is to change now then makes him look weak and his philosophy he's been trying to install into the team has to begin again in August . Players are still learning how to play his way and dick is still learning about this group of players. Some have improved. Dick needs a season to access what he has and what he hasn't.

Hi Paddy
When Pep took over city he brought in players to play his style so although it was a difficult first season the benefits were seen a year later when he only had to add here and there to perfect his plans.
Our players are not 50 million plus players and we won't be bringing in 50 million plus players either to play Dicks preferred way.
Horses for courses in my opinion mate and it's no good asking people to do what they simply aren't upto doing, some people are decent backing singers but just not upto being lead vocalists is the easiest way I see it.
This pretty playing out from the back isn't brilliant if you have the players to do it but if you don't your always going to come undone as often as not.

Pep continued to play his way the first year he went to city even though he hadn't the players. It wasn't until his 2nd season he brought in the 50m fullbacks and a keeper. The difficulty for dick is he has less to work with than pep had when he first arrived to city.
My point is dick needs time and he needs players to suit his style but for now he has to make do with what he has.

I agree paddy, its dicks way or get out because you aren't capable. Its obvious that in the summer, there are players in this squad who Dick will wave bye bye because of what he has seen this season. The fly in the ointment will be Ozil, the biggest scar from the previous regime. How we/ he deals with him is any ones guess. Ozil, mustaffi, xhaka and iwobi for different reasons are a massive problem to our future. The defence will get a massive overhaul, just because monreal, jenko and lich will need replacing just for starters. But ozil is strangling us going forward.
