A girl was made to pass an Arsenal quiz by her boyfriend or face being dumped, according to the Daily Express, in what is a rather extreme example of the importance of Arsenal to the fans!
The young lady, believed to be named Saskia, revealed on her personal Twitter account that she had passed the test.
In a GCSE style paper, there were 50 marks available to her and she scored 87%, although there was plenty of feedback to consider for future reference.

Questions included; ‘who scored our winning goal in the FA Cup final?’ to which the candidate answered incorrectly as well as the scoreline in the final against Hull City.

The feedback from the boyfriend urged her to ‘learn ALL player positions’ and also for Saskia to become familiar with the north London rivalry.
It certainly isn’t the first time football has come between a relationship, but with the new age of social media the relatable nature of the situation has captured many.
Let’s hope it lasts the distance!
