Happy St. Totteringham´s day Arsenal fans! It may not have had the excitement and nail biting climax that we have seen quite a few times (too many) in recent seasons, but the battle for football dominance in north London is over for another year at least and it is the red and white side that will be celebrating.
Come on spuds, you have to try a bit harder than that! The Gunners still have four games left to play and the away victory over Hull City has opened up an insurmountable gap of 12 points over the lilywhite neighbours as they only have three to play. They might not even make the Europa League at this rate.
Despite Arsenal making our worst start to the season for many years it never looked like this would be the season we relinquish power in north London and that is not only testament to the way we have improved over the season, it shows me that Arsene Wenger has finally got a team that can forget about these derby games and focus on the Premier League title itself.
Of course it is right to want to beat your local rivals but unless they finish second in the league, that should not be enough for Arsenal next season. This summer is very important and Wenger needs to sign the right players but we already have the tools and with a good start to next season, could St. Totteringham´s day come even earlier as the Gunners head for the title?
