Norwegian Liverpool Supporter Adds “Anfield” To His Last Name

Liverpool Fan

From The Daily Mail

Axel Gogstad spent his youth admiring Robbie Fowler, Kenny Dalglish and Steven Gerrard, and decided to take his support to the next level when he turned 18.

In a moment of spontaneity, the youngster set off to write his name into Liverpool history – by changing it to Anfield.

Now known as Axel Gogstad-Anfield, the 27-year-old studies sports journalism in Southampton and is proud of his actions to this day.

‘I come from Norway. I changed my name to Anfield when I turned 18, I’ve had it for nine years now,’ he told

‘It was quite a spontaneous thing, really. I’ve always been proud of my name but I thought if I put ‘Anfield’ to it I’d be even more proud of it and I can carry Liverpool wherever I’m going.’

Gogstad-Anfield is lucky to be a Liverpool supporter, and not a fan of a club a with a corporate-sponsored stadium.

Can you imagine if he was a Wigan, Manchester City, or Arsenal fan? Axel Gogstad-DW, Eithad, and Emirates don’t have a natural ring to them like Anfield does. He’ll never walk alone with that name.
