    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".

    We lost again...

    It's not happening this year. Being honest losing like we did last night we don't deserve it...

    There is always the outside chance that this season continues down the everyone trying to outdo each other for being rubbish but somehow I think St T won't be back until 2020. If I'm proved wrong I'll be back here.

    I appear to have lost one fixture each from my run-in list. So I've redone it with dates.
    Arsenal Spurs
    3 AprCrystal Palace (h)
    7 AprEverton (a)
    13 Apr Huddersfield (h)
    15 AprWatford (a)
    20 AprManchester City (a)
    21 AprCrystal Palace (h)
    23 AprBrighton & Hove Albion (h)
    24 AprWolves (a)
    27 AprWest Ham United (h)
    29 AprLeicester City (h)
    4 MayBrighton & Hove Albion (h) AFC Bournemouth (a)
    12 MayBurnley (a) Everton (h)

    ... and the table extract while I am here

    Well, well, well...

    So Spurs lose the first of the two massive games in the run in, and Arsenal, incredibly, don't fluff our chance to move above them. The bottle jobs still have a tougher run in too..
    Arsenal Spurs
    Everton (a) Brighton & Hove Albion (h)
    Watford (a) Huddersfield (h)
    Crystal Palace (h) Manchester City (a)
    Leicester City (h) West Ham United (h)
    Brighton & Hove Albion (h) AFC Bournemouth (a)
    Burnley (a) Everton (h)

    Now Arsenal fans know we are more than capable of messing up, but I'd rather be two points ahead with 7 to play than 2 behind. St Totteringham's may be back this year, albeit a late one. I won't put the table in, but just mention in passing Arsenal have 63 points and a GD of +26 with more goals scored than Spurs who only have 61 points and +24.

    Suddenly it looks close.

    The Spurs title challenge has done exactly what every Arsenal fan knew it would.

    It came to resounding splat. Moreover Spurs could now finish sixth in the three horse race for the title. Admittedly they still have a point lead on Arsenal but the run in favours the Gunners.
    Arsenal Spurs
    Newcastle (h) Liverpool (a)
    Everton (a) Brighton & Hove Albion (h)
    Watford (a) Huddersfield (h)
    Crystal Palace (h) Manchester City (a)
    Leicester City (h) West Ham United (h)
    Brighton & Hove Albion (h) AFC Bournemouth (a)
    Burnley (a) Everton (h)

    There are plenty of games in there that either team could lose, but they should win. Watford for us and West Ham for Spurs jump out in that category.

    However Spurs have two huge games Liverpool and City, which could easily be two heavy defeats. However the race for St T's or not is going to the wire this season.

    Just setting up ready for the new season.

    It's only July but I thought I should get the new season tag ready here and on the history page.

    It will be an interesting start to the season: a new coach at Arsenal means that expectation is higher than this time last year. Spurs may also find the first few weeks tricky due to construction issues and a possible world cup hangover. However this season is a transition one, so if a good start doesn't materialise I'd expect it to be three in a row. And I'll be annoyed...

    Oh I should just confirm that the date Spurs finished above us last season was 29th April, following our 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford.
