    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".

    Well, fancy that...

    Despite my early season pessimism things are suddenly and unexpectedly looking rosier!

    After 11 games we were behind Spurs, but had battled well to stay in touch with what we were assured was a superb Tottenham team. I was thrilled by a superb North London Derby that left us just 1 point behind. Since when Spurs have continued to implode and we've been thoroughly professional: Grinding out a rather grim 1-0 at Burnley and thumping poor Huddersfield tonight. (Sorry Huddersfield fans!)

    The net result is that we are 4th and Spurs are 7th. Four points down.

    Permit me to enjoy that.

    Power shift in North London? No sign of it.

    Anyway the key bit of the table is...

    4. Arsenal     P14 28pts +12
    5. Liverpool   P14 26pts +10
    6. Burnley     P14 25pts +3
    7. Spurs       P14 24pts +10

    Burnley are impressive this season. I'll also remind people Spurs still have to play City twice. However a long way to go, and a four point gap can, as Spurs just demonstrated, be reversed in 4 games!
