Arsenal supporters mocked and laughed at bitter north London rivals Tottenham while celebrating St. Totteringham’s day - the day on which Spurs can no longer finish above the Gunners in the Premier League table - on Monday night.
Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Newcastle United means it is now mathematically impossible for Tottenham to finish ahead of Arsene Wenger’s men, who are firmly on course to secure Champions League football for the 18th season in a row. Spurs last finished above Arsenal in the Premier League table at the end of the 1994/95 campaign.
There was optimism this would finally be the season Tottenham would finish higher in the league table than Arsenal after spending almost £100m on new recruits following the departure of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid last summer.
However, Spurs’ summer signings have struggled this season, while Andre Villas-Boas was sacked midway through the campaign. Tottenham’s results have improved a little under Tim Sherwood, but the club can no longer qualify for next season’s Europa League.
Arsenal Fan TV interviewed a number of Gunners fans outside the Emirates Stadium after the Newcastle match to have their say on St. Totteringham’s day. Needless to say, they were all pretty pleased. You don’t need to give them much encouragement to have a pop at Spurs.
But will Arsenal supporters be celebrating St. Totteringham’s day next season? Or will 2014/15 finally be the season in which Spurs - under a new manager - finish above the Gunners in the Premier League table?
