There’s no doubt that fans of British
soccer football teams can be pretty intense.
I mean, in extreme cases, we’re talking about people who will riot in the streets against fans of
their enemies the other team.
But one dad has taken fandom to a whole new level.
Twitter user Arsenal Cannon Pics posted a tweet featuring a photo of a page from what we guess is an Australian magazine.
Clare Smith from Blacktown in NSW says that her daughter's name, Lanesra, was chosen because it's "unique and romantic."
Fast forward two years, and her husband has finally told her the truth.
Her daughter's name is Arsenal, her husband's favourite soccer team, spelled backwards.
Here's the tweet;
Guy names his daughter Lanesra, wife only finds out it is Arsenal backwards when the kid turns 2 ??. Legend ??! pic.twitter.com/jvEVeuJ9jv

While we're glad he doesn't barrack for Manchester (Retsehcnam) or Tottenham (Mahnettot), the real take away here is that if he was a Chelsea fan, things would have been much easier for everyone.
