Happy St Totteringhams Day To Gooners Everywhere

As the mighty Gunners fought back from a one goal deficit to crush Wigan Athletic 4 goals to one, their North London neighbours were also on their way to 3 points of their own.

However, despite this victory for the Lilywhites, it wasn't enough to prevent that greatest of annual traditions ..... St Totteringhams Day.

This yearly event occurs when it becomes mathmatically impossible for the inferior boys in white to finish above the awesome Gunners.

And this year we've been lucky enough for this day to fall on an Easter weekend, meaning we can enjoy the occasion for longer than usual by boozing till Monday.

So all that's left for me to do is to wish Gooners everywhere and very happy, and beer fueled St Totteringhams day.

Despite 2 managers, near enough 100 million spent on players, re signing the players from their best ever 5th placed finish. Next year then perhaps.........

Luckys .... unless you're about 25 years of age it's very unlikely you'll be able to remember the last time they finished above us.

you scums should remember that you have not beaten us in 4 games and remember the 5-1, also remember how you were 4-2 up and you *****d it up. i would also like to remind you that you guys do not know how it is to play at the new wembley ,while we have already been there twice and when was the last time you won anything? Despite the fact that we always tend to finish below you, spurs are muchmore entertaining to support as we do not play out 4 consecutive 0-0 draws and our lane is not a library. By the way enjoy your boring summer transfer window.

What ground has seen the least goals scored this season? The entertainers from the lane. Wembley next week, havent beaten you in 4 games...but 10 years without losing to you in the league, boring transfer window like when we signed Andrei Arshavin, how excited were you when you signed David Bentley and Darren Bent. YFI has highlighted brilliantly why we love this day so much!

I can't wait for the next tarded spuddy to come on and tell us that the tea they serve is better than at the emirates. Wow, they got us there eh? Might aswell pack up and go home, the mighty spuds are on the march.....again.

The 'best of the rest' derby ended 3-3, entertaining game and just the result we would've hoped. I like Senna as a player and don't wish injury to anyone but he's out for the return leg in CL. Great weekend all round! (Well, apart from losing yet another CB, it was kind of great all round...)

Recent results against us just proves how much the dross that play for the scum are short-changing their fans. If the players put the same amount of effort into playing the rest of the premier league, as they put into playing us, then Spurs would not be such a *****e club....I wonder how sad it must be for the average spud not to have seen his team EVER compete realistically for the title.The only solace for them is to look back through their dads and grandads scrap-books and see pictures of Danny Blanchflower et al. Well thats no so bad...it was only 48 years ago...
