Probably what you see is
`eshell-command-completion-function', and
usually when there are alternatives those are
given in the help - also, I can't find any - so
probably you'll have to implement the bash
style yourself :) (Perhaps not as difficult as
it sounds if you can find and reuse some
similar completion mechanism already in Emacs!)

You could just use M-x shell RET if it is just
a bash window you are looking for, of course.
