    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".

    Not a shock

    I write this with a couple of minutes left, so the goal difference may be wrong, but I doubt the result will be.

    Arsenal3666+24
    Spurs3562+204(3)(71)

    So bad news, St Totteringham's can't be on the 2nd May. Earliest is May 5th (Bolton win, we beat Norwich). Arsenal need 6 points out of 6. That would give us a last day St Ts. If Spurs lose a game, one win will do for us. Looking at the remaining games...

    2 MayBolton Wanderers (a)
    5 MayNorwich City (h)
    6 MayAston Villa (a)
    13 MayWBA (a)Fulham (h)

    Bolton on Wednesday night might be a tough game, but I'd expect Spurs to win. So we need to beat Norwich in our last home game and the Baggies in our last road trip. My worry is that, like last season, some of our players seem already mentally on the beach. We need two huge performances from our lads. Even if Spurs drop points one of the chasing pack isn't going to, and we need to hang onto third.

    The Spurs game has just ended, so the table ought to be correct. Next update after Bolton's match against Spurs.

    Another comeback, another point

    We need Spurs to drop points or to win our final two games. The latter will also guarantee third place, which would be very useful. St T's can still be on May 2nd (if Spurs lose today and at Bolton) in theory.

    I do wish Arsenal would start to play before the opponents take the lead. Next update will be later today after Spurs play Blackburn.

    Update: Fixed errors in table. Sorry.
