    In this episode we look back at the 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace on Monday night. We chat about the bright start but the inability to build on it, the goals we conceded, Arsenal's passive off-the-ball approach, continued concerns about the team's lack of attacking productivity, the late equaliser which rescued a point against Patrick Vieira's team, and the abysmal refereeing decision when James McArthur only got a yellow card for a brutal foul on Bukayo Saka. Then there are listener questions about Arsenal as a possession side, Thomas Partey and how midfield might look in January when he goes to the AFCON, Martin Odegaard's second poor performance in a row, movement and passing, officiating the officials, Alexandre Lacazette, sprucing up the Emirates and lots more.Get extra bonus content and help support Arseblog by becoming an Arseblog Member on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/arseblog See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
