|St Totteringham's Day|

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".

The quick version is it can't be St Totteringham's on Sunday.
The best result would be that we get a win at Stoke (not certain) and Blackburn manage to get their second win on the bounce at WHL. That would leave Spurs 9 points behind with three games left.
At that point if we lost and Spurs won their remaining games we would finish level on points. It wouldn't be guaranteed that we'd finish above Spurs, and so it wouldn't be St Ts.
The earliest St Totteringham's is now May 2nd, and that relies on a win for Arsenal at Stoke, and Spurs not getting a win in either of the games against Blackburn or Bolton: two draws would do us. Or Arsenal getting a point at Stoke and Spurs losing them both.
That seems unlikely. I should add that it isn't guaranteed we'll have a St Ts in 2012, but I am starting to think it more likely than not.
