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".

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.
|Games||Points||GD||Points behind||(games left)||(max points)
Here is the run-in, complete with correct date for the Bolton-Spurs game.
|21 April||Chelsea (h)||QPR (a)
|28 April||Stoke City (a)||
|29 April||Blackburn Rovers (h)
|2 May||Bolton Wanderers (a)
|5 May||Norwich City (h)||
|6 May||Aston Villa (a)
|13 May||WBA (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.
