    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".

    Thank-you QPR!

    The weekend redeemed by QPR beating Spurs meaning we've widened the gap despite dropping points at home.

    The Premier League needs to sort out the low standard of refereeing we are seeing this year. Clattenburg's inability to notice that he's written the same number twice is pathetic. Utterly contemptible. Remember how much referees are paid. Unfortunately Taraabt's second booking was as deserved as it was idiotic. I didn't see the first booking though. Very odd to be cheering on a team with Joey Barton: it doesn't half make you feel dirty.

    Anyway the key facts are the table and the points:
    GamesPointsGDPoints behind(games left)(max points)
    Arsenal3565+24
    Spurs3459+196(4)(71)

    What this means is that the draw this morning is very useful in terms of St Totteringham's day: it stretches our lead to six points with four games left for Spurs. We need just 7 points from the last three games. Two wins and a draw would do it. However third is better than fourth and Newcastle's push means we need three wins out of three. That however is a luxury beyond the minimum acceptable of finishing above Spurs!

    The run in...

    2 MayBolton Wanderers (a)
    5 MayNorwich City (h)
    6 MayAston Villa (a)
    13 MayWBA (a)Fulham (h)
    I think Villa have to admit they've been dragged into the fracas: although they may be safe my May. Spurs face tricky opponents fighting for Premier League survival. We have three mid table opponents.

    We drew with Chelsea so...

    Spurs can really narrow the gap. This is a stub which I'll replace with a more detailed article later.

    Arsenal3565
    Spurs33596(5)(74)

    Although we need ten points to be sure, three wins means Spurs can only match us, and it would come to goal difference. Likely to be tight if Spurs win all five of their games too. Basically we need Spurs to start dropping points.
