In the debate as to whether North London is red or white, there’s been no contest that Arsenal have almost always got the better of Spurs. However, the past two years have been unusual in that they have been ones without a St. Totteringham’s Day. As most Arsenal supporters know, St. Totteringham’s Day is the day each season when Gooners celebrate the fact that Tottenham can no longer catch Arsenal in the League.
Spurs fans have been emboldened by their club’s recent form. Some pundits have even gone so far as to declare that there has been a “power shift” between the two clubs.
Here are just some of the comments from over confident Spurs fans on Twitter in February on this supposed changing of the guard in North London:
Don’t care about the occasional Arsenal win against Spurs , north London is white . Spurs are a trophy away from a definite power shift— Milo Amroliwala (@Milo09Rusi) February 16, 2019
What a time to be alive.. North London is white for the foreseeable future https://t.co/iV4weuoLNL— Colin Brady (@bradycolinx) February 14, 2019
The best of all is this one from February 3rd.
It’s April 1st, and the joke is now on Tottenham and its fans. That ten point lead of two months ago is now a two point deficit in favor of Arsenal. As Yogi Berra once said, “it ain’t over until it’s over.” Spurs fans should know that better than any other fan base at this point.
Gooners couldn’t pass up the opportunity to gloat and let their rivals know that the return of St. Totteringham’s Day is a real possibility.

Six games ago Tottenham Hotspur were 10 points clear of Arsenal in 3rd. Tonight, they're 4th and Arsenal are two points clear in 3rd.— That Man Jesus (@Ayodafe) April 1, 2019
North London is well and truly red.#SpursAreBottlers
Can't wait for St. Totteringham's Day— Brian Kituyi (@BrianKituyi1) April 1, 2019
There are, of course, still seven league matches left in the season. Therefore, we’ll have to wait and see if there will be a St. Totteringham’s Day this year. No matter what happens, though, Arsenal are definitely causing Spurs fans some sleepless nights.
