Imagine you had to take a quiz about Arsenal to save your job, your marriage or your relationship. Well that was the case of Saskia, 17, whose username is @saskiaisabxlla as she was made to take an Arsenal exam by her boyfriend so he would not dump her. Such love!!!Top marks for Saskia, the girlfriend of an Arsenal fan who aced a written exam on all things Gunners to save their relationship and whose mostly correct responses have gone viral.
The stakes were high before she scored 43.5 out of a possible 50 points, or 87 per cent. By the grading system of her boyfriend, who didn’t want to be identified, that constitutes an A.‘Well done, Saskia. As a result, I will not be dumping you [lucky you],’ he wrote in red pen on the cover of the test along with some feedback.
The post has since been retweeted 9,600 times, almost five times for each of her 1,900 or so followers, with widespread congratulations coming from Gunners fans.
He even said ‘I will not be dumping you’. chai and I thought it was a break up. little did I know it was a dumping stuvs. this girl must really love the guy ooh.
‘Could have performed better in Q17,’ a question in which she was asked to explain ‘why Alexis Sanchez is better than Eden Hazard.’
Her responses included ‘Sanchez is buff’ and that ‘he scores a lot of goals’. A derogatory comment about Hazard, the newly crowned PFA Player of the Year, got extra marks.
She told Sportsmail: ‘After the Arsenal vs Chelsea game the previous Sunday, he told me “I might make make an Arsenal exam for you”. At first I thought he was joking but then I thought it would be funny to do it.
‘Over the time that we have been together I managed to adopt his interest and learnt a lot about football in the process. So the following day I took it under his watch to make sure I didn’t cheat. He marked it based on his own grade boundaries and I did better than he expected.
‘I tweeted it the same evening, but we never expected it to get this far. I’ve had mixed reception but most of it was positive, some even calling him a “legend”. He said that our relationship was on the line but he was bluffing and used it
‘A few took it too seriously but at the end of the day it was just something that we did together for fun and was meant to be humorous and lighthearted.’
After correctly identifying a yellow Gunners shirt as the away strip, Saskia was asked to name the entire Arsenal starting XI with their positions for 22 points.
She faltered only in calling Mesut Ozil a defender, Danny Welbeck a midfielder instead of a striker (harsh marking) and leaving out Laurent Koscielny altogether.
I should try this with my girlfriend and threaten to break up with her if she doesn’t pass my Arsenal quiz..
Oooooppppsssss, I dont have a girlfriend*sobs*.
Anyways maybe sometime when I get one.
Just thought y’all should share in this fun story with me.
