    St Totteringham's Day is the day when Arsenal fans celebrate the fact that Tottenham can no longer catch Arsenal in the League. It is a movable feast, but usually falls in March, April or May. It is the day to collect on bets made by over-optimistic Spurs fans in the close season who think that "this is the year".

    Jack is confident. I'm not. Yet.

    A much better month. Lots of good results, and being the first English team through to the knock out stages of the Champions League is an added bonus. Things look rosier.

    The BBC are reporting that Jack Wilshire is trying to get Spurs fans to bet with him about whether Arsenal or Spurs will finish higher in the league this season. It seems that Spurs fans think that this is the year to end our 16 years of domination. (I've dug out the original two tweets too (here and here) , and you can of course follow @JackWilshere on twitter).

    So how confident are the S***s fans? How many takers has Jack had so far I wonder.

    Anyway. With the last matches in November coming up we remain three points behind them, and theys till have the game in hand against Everton. Not insurmountable, but they are playing well and I still find our performances not totally convincing. Moreover if anything happens to RvP we are in all sorts of trouble. I wish I had Jack's confidence.

    The result against Chelsea made me a lot happier, but their subsequent collapse (or continued collapse?) has made me question if it was as significant as I felt at the time. (But who will ever get bored of watching Mr Terry fall over?)

    Time will tell, but things aren't so bad as they once were.
