    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".

    Big game this evening...

    Much as it may pain me to admit it, we could do with Liverpool doing us a huge favour tonight. Come on Liverpool...

    Normally at the start of April I'd be making an estimate of when St Totteringham's will fall, but this year it is firmly in the if category not the when. The top of the table is not at all pretty:
    Games leftPointsGDMaximum points available
    Leicester City7662387
    Manchester City7542475

    Having said that, and while I stress that I don't think Arsenal can win the title, and that we aren't secure from being overtaken by City (or West Ham or Manchester United come to that), the run-in below shows why I think (i) Leicester are going to do it and (ii) why Spurs fans can't be sure of breaking the 21 year streak.
    Southampton (H) Liverpool (A)
    Sunderland (A) Manchester Utd (H) West Ham Utd (A)
    West Ham Utd (H) Stoke City (A) Crystal Palace (H)
    West Bromwich Albion (H)
    Swansea City (H) West Bromwich Albion (H) Sunderland (A)
    Manchester Utd (A) Chelsea (A) Norwich City (H)
    Everton (H) Southampton (H) Manchester City (A)
    Chelsea (A) Newcastle Utd (A) Aston Villa (H)
    Key: points at 5pm on 2nd April: Less than 20 20 to 29 30 to 39 40 to 49 50 to 59 over 60

    The rest of this weekend could be good for Arsenal, but if Spurs don't slip up in one of the next three then it looks like St Totteringham will be having a rest this year. Also nice to see a solid professional drubbing of Watford today, almost makes up for the Cup result...
