Potty for Potters
Stoke are huge in Norway a-ha duo explainaudience
Last updated: 26th September 2009
a-ha duo Morten Harket and Magne Furuholmen dropped into the Soccer AM studios on Saturday to talk about their love for Stoke City.
Proudly wearing their replica Potters shirts the duo - who came to fame in the '80s after the release of the huge hit, Take on Me - revealed they were constantly having to explain why they support the Premier League outfit.
The boys are in the UK to promote their new single, Nothing is Keeping You Here, but they were more than happy to talk football too.
"We're from Norway and everyone in Norway is a Stoke City fan," said Magne. "Well, there might be a couple of Liverpool supporters as well!"
"It goes back to 1972/73," added Morten. "Those were big years for Stoke. Gordon Banks obviously was massive back then and Peter Shilton as well a little later on."
"So that's what threw us," said Magne. "Because when we've been saying we're Stoke fans, everyone in England has been saying 'why?' And we can't get our heads around that question because Stoke was and still is the biggest team for everyone (in Norway)."
Naturally, Helen and Max had lots more questions for them about Stoke and of course their new single, including...
Did they used to collect football stickers as well?
Why don't they have a video yet for their new single?
And... who did the artwork for their new album cover?
