|St Totteringham's Day|
An RSS feed...
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".

Probably a good weekend...
My prediction was that we'd be looking up at Spurs today, but instead we are still 2 points above them. A quick glance at the table...
65 Chelsea (+33 with 4 to go) 64 Arsenal (+30 with 3 to go) 63 62 Spurs (+17 with 4 to go)
Increasingly that Chelsea-Spurs match looks crucial, here is the run-in with new colours to reflect relegation status
To explain the colours...
A quick back of envelope calculation says Stoke and Southampton are still not safe, but I haven't checked the detailed fixtures. They may be safe.
Irrespective of that the two run-ins are interesting side by side. Spurs face two teams who are probably safe and one firmly in the scrap, whilst we face one down already and two definitely scrapping. The nearly safe ones will be stronger, but perhaps less committed to the fight. All I can safely say is things will be clearer on May 9...
