Of course S*urs sitting higher than us in the league table contributes to that shudder massively, but what really causes that horrible feeling is that we sit outside the Champions League places.
Now don't get me wrong, the thought of that lot finishing above us is indeed truly horrific. It hasn't happened since I started puberty in 1995 so I guess it is taken for granted.
But the most important thing, in my opinion, is that Arsenal qualify for next seasons Champions League. Even if that means finishing below S*urs.
I have no doubt that there will be Gooners aghast having read that and I fully understand why. I just feel the most important thing for the club is too be involved in the most elite European competition.
Maybe we have started to believe we have a divine and holy right to be in the Champions League as we have been involved in it for so many years. It becomes something we can take for granted.
But believe me, you have to earn your right to play alongside the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Apoel Nicosia season after season.
For 14 years we have earned our place amongst the cream of Europe and I want to be there again next season regardless if St Totteringham's Day happens this campaign or not.
Some of my pals are Spuds and the banter can be quite amusing. One thing I love taking the piss out of them about is the fact they compare themselves to us all the time.
For me, there is no comparison. Check the history. They are in our shadow and the Rafa Benitez fact of the day is they would rather finish above Arsenal than win the league.
Over the the years they have become infatuated with us and truly believe finishing higher than Arsenal is the be-all and end-all. Lets not become like them
Our ambitions have always been higher so I am not going to start worrying about them.
Years and years have gone by since they finished above us and one day it is bound to happen.
They think it's wrapped up for them already and that's fine by me. Personally I believe that the Premiership is a marathon, not a sprint. There is a long time to go and football is a funny 'ol game.
So I am not panicking any time soon and the only time I will be is if our Champions League place is very much on the line.
Despite S*urs making massive strides and impressing, I actually think they will blow up sooner or later and we will catch them.
But if we didn't, and if that was the case, I would sacrifice St Totteringhams all day long to make sure we were in the Champions League.
Or maybe we should get the Lasagne out again.
