    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".

    Poldi is a STILL a superstar, but not yet St Totteringham's day

    Two great finishes from Lukas Podolski, and one from Rambo today. Seems strangely close to the start of my last post, but Spurs managed a result this weekend. That leaves us...
    GamesPointsGDPoints behind(games left)(max points)
    Arsenal3570+20
    Spurs3563+27(3)(72)

    Arsenal need just 3 points from three games to beat Spurs. So if we win or Spurs lose next weekend it is all over. Similarly if both teams draw. To avoid St T's Spurs need to do better than Arsenal next week.

    Moreover the huge goal difference advantage is probably effectively worth a point, but of course that doesn't change St T's. That is only declared when it is certain!

    The run-in, including Everton (who are currently playing Utd as I type)...

    Key (position 16:00 20/4/14)
    top 4
    43-49 points
    32-37 points
    relegation zone

    I think it will be settled either at Stoke on Saturday, or at Arsenal on the Monday of next week.

    Fourth place also looks a lot more plausible. A lot hangs on two Manchester clubs though, which doesn't half leave me feeling dirty!
