    St Totteringham's Day was 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 was the day to collect on bets made by over-optimistic Spurs fans in the close season who think that "this is the year".

    Good result for Spurs: does it hang on the Chelsea game?

    We ground out a win at Fulham, and then Spurs made City look like mugs. Then that bizarre match at Anfield...

    Which leaves the table very tight...

    63  Arsenal (+30, 4)
    62  Chelsea (+31, 5)
    61  Spurs   (+17, 5)

    And the run in looking shorter but not much changed. Most of the teams are still in the scrap to avoid being the third team to go down, although issues will be clearer for some of them very soon:
    27 AprWigan Athletic (a)
    28 AprManchester Utd (h)
    4 MayQPR (a)Southampton (h)
    8 MayChelsea (a)
    12 MayStoke City (a)
    14 MayWigan Athletic(h)
    19 MayNewcastle Utd (a)Sunderland (h)

    To explain the colours...
    Key (as of 22/4/13) below 30 points 31-40 41-50 56-68 Man U

    I'm still rather negative about St Ts. But if Villa lose tomorrow, making Manchester Utd champions ahead of our game next weekend we can hope for a championship hangover. Incresingly it looks like the Chelsea v Spurs match might be crucial. If Chelsea can get a point or three off Spurs we could be OK.

    However it remains in Spurs hands, and a bad result next weekend could be fatal to both St Ts, and Wenger's much cherished fourth place "trophy"...
