    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".

    So, going into the final weekend...

    The "after you, I insist" nature of the hunt for CL places continues. Arsenal give a woeful performances against Norwich and only manage a draw, then Spurs slip up at Villa and Newcastle lose to City. So despite our dreadful performance, one that definitely fell into the "already on holiday" camp I mentioned in an earlier post, we are still in the driving seat. Indeed despite picking up only 3 points from our last five games we, somehow, still have St Totteringham's in our hands. The final day games Arsenal at WBA, and Spurs at home to Fulham, are huge.

    It will be St Totteringham's day next Sunday if...

    • Arsenal win, no matter what happens at WHL
    • Spurs lose, no matter what happens at the Hawthorns
    • Arsenal and Spurs draw
    • Arsenal lose by only one goal and Spurs draw, provided Spurs don't score 8 goals more than Arsenal. (So if we lose 3-4, Spurs would beat us with a 12-12 draw.)

    St Totteringham's won't happen if Spurs do better than Arsenal, with the bottom exception. That simple.

    Clear?

    Anyway here is the table, complete with added Geordies
    GamesPointsGDPoints behind(games left)(max points)
    Arsenal3767+24
    Spurs3766+231(1)(69)
    Newcastle Utd3765+72(1)(68)

    To beat Newcastle we just need to draw or better. If we draw I can't see Newcastle overturning a 17 goal deficit!

    So fingers crossed, and let us hope Spurs have Lasagne again.

    Not good enough

    So we are at the mercy of Villa today... Not a good place to be. St Totteringham's will either be next Sunday or postponed.
