    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".

    Nineteen years in a row: 28th April 2014

    There are no teenage fans of Tottenham who were alive last time Spurs finished above Arsenal. There are no Spurs fans below about 24 who will really remember when they last finished above Arsenal (and if they do then they'll remember how many trophies we won that year!).

    Time to collect on the bets. Again.

    Anyway the table showing the final calculation:
    GamesPointsGDPoints behind(games left)(max points)

    An April St Totteringham's is the earliest we've had since 2008/9, and 36 games comes as a welcome relief after two successive final day St Ts. We only needed 35 in 2010/11 despite it being on May 7.

    A 1 bet invested at double-or-quits started in 1995/1996 would now need a payment of 262,144. Almost buy a season ticket with that...

    As well as all that we still have two things to play for: we need another three points to be sure of 4th place, and there is the small matter of the FA Cup Final!

    Last season at this stage I said Spurs are improving. I was wrong.
