    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".

    St Totteringham's Day at Spurs. Again.

    Today's win means that Spurs will finish below Arsenal in the league again.

    I would have posted earlier but my host was down. It probably saved me from an over-enthusiastic half time post. But despite the attempt to make it exciting from Raya we got the three points.

    The table...
    GamesPointsPoints behind(games left)(max points)

    This is the fourth time St T's has coincided with a NLD result, and the third time it was an Spurs. The previous three were 1927 (Spurs 0-4 Arsenal, May 7), 1975 (Arsenal 1-0 Spurs, April 26) and 2007 (Spurs 2-2 Arsenal, April 21).

    St T's is roughly a week later than last year (when it happened after the awful 3-3 draw at home against Southampton), and a game later for Arsenal.

    It is also the anniversary of St Totteringham's day 1928, a season which also had the fun of Spurs being relegated, and the 2014 St Totteringham's (we won the FA Cup).

    For those keeping score, it is the 53rd St Totteringham's day, which added to the 15 seasons Spurs were in division 2 makes 68 times we've finished above them.

    Sadly Forest couldn't help us out.

    Happy St Totteringham's Day 2024!

    Another huge North London Derby

    In summary: we win at Spurs and they can't catch us. A draw and it's St T's day, but the league is almost certainly gone. A loss doesn't bear thinking about.

    The table...
    GamesPointsPoints behind(games left)(max points)


    • if we win we'll have 80 points and Spurs will be able to get 75. St T's day.
    • if we draw we'll have 78 and Spurs will be able to get 76. St T's day.
    • if we lose Spurs will still be able to get 78 and we'll need to find two points from our last three games to beat them.

    Come on you Gunners!

    I didn't expect that...

    I could be talking about yesterday's spanking of Spurs by the Geordies or today's shock Palace win at Anfield. Obviously the latter is more interesting in the race for the title, but the former has more influence on St Totteringham's day.

    It is time for me to get out the traditional table to show the gap from Spurs to Arsenal.
    GamesPointsPoints behind(games left)(max points)

    Vital we win today for the league race, but it also goes a long way towards those eight points we need to once more beat Spurs.

    Won't be easy though, as we know Unai Emery is a good manager and has done a superb job at Villa.

    Near the end of January

    This is just a short post to reassure people I'm still here. We are doing quite well this season, but sadly so are Spurs. Anyway: as things stand we have a three point lead (which is not a lot) with 17 games to play for both of us (which is a lot). Come back in March or April! (Or sooner if something exciting happens.) Anyway Happy New Year everyone.
