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

As autumn turns into winter...
Even better is Spurs stuttering start. The early penalty wins flattered them it'd appear, and I am sure most readers took great glee in the drubbing that City gave them recently.
However we must remember how early in the season it is. This time last year Spurs were two points ahead, and the year before by the end of November they had a three point lead. So don't get too confident at a mere 11 point lead. Especially as they have a game in hand.
The situation in summary:
And a rather elongated Cann table extract is needed to get Spurs and Arsenal both in...
31 Arsenal 30 29 28 27 26 25 24 Liverpool (1 game in hand), Chelsea (1), Everton 23 22 Man City (1), Southampton (1) 21 Man Utd (1) 20 Newcastle Utd (1), Tottenham Hotspur (1)
That is a heck of a gap, but Arsenal need to keep slogging away and winning. But who saw this back in July?
