    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".

    Twitter button

    OK I admit I was bored, but I've added a "tweet this" button to each story. It ought to be straightforward as it uses the method provided by Twitter themselves, but do email me if you have any problems. Address in side bar on left hand side!

    Well played Wigan.

    What a load of rubbish we played, and dreadful from Mariner, but credit to Wigan they deserved to beat us.

    This means a change from my pre-match report. We still need 11 more points for Arsenal or the gap to widen by 11 points. Earliest date is now 29 April with lots of "if"s attached, the most unlikely of which is Blackburn winning on that day. A May date seems more likely to me, and if we fail to beat Chelsea on Saturday that might look optimistic: if we don't rely on Spurs losing we need to win all four of our matches.

    Here is the run-in, complete with correct date for the Bolton-Spurs game.
    DateArsenalSpurs
    21 AprilChelsea (h)QPR (a)
    28 AprilStoke City (a)
    29 AprilBlackburn Rovers (h)
    2 MayBolton Wanderers (a)
    5 MayNorwich City (h)
    6 MayAston Villa (a)
    13 MayWBA (a)Fulham (h)

    We really need a win against Chelsea to keep the pressure on Spurs and Newcastle. It is still perfectly feasible for us to finish outside the top 4. Look at our collapse at the end of last season, or Spurs' collapse this season to prove that.
