One accusation you can't throw at me is that I've always done my best.
There are not many times when I get nervous, but I do a little bit with penalties.
You can take 100 penalties in training, but when you go out on that pitch in front of all those people and the television cameras, it's completely different.
Regrets? None at all.
It doesn't matter that I didn't win a trophy because I did it my way and I lived the dream.
Sometimes going in for a hard tackle generates a louder cheer than a great pass.
Basically, a manager is a father figure to 20 or 25 blokes. It's about trying to get the best out of them and creating team spirit.
I've got a great life that I really enjoy. But there is something chewing at me inside: that adrenaline rush from football, I miss that.
When I was a young boy I wanted to play for Newcastle United, I wanted to wear the number nine shirt and I wanted to score goals at St James' Park. I've lived my dream and I realise how lucky I've been to have done that.
At times they don't like you to kick them and they feel you're not allowed to kick them.
Football's not just about scoring goals - it's about winning.
We go there with confidence, but we know there is a very fine line between success and failure in this game.
I hope I never have to face that feeling of missing and sending my country or team out of a competition.
I always practise penalties, but what people don't understand is that you can never recreate that pressure situation that you're under.
Management interests me at some stage in my life, I have always said that. When that will be I really couldn't tell you.
The managers are getting paid very well by their respective clubs to do a job for their clubs not the country they are working in.
I have had interviews and got close to taking a managerial job. I would consider going back into football.
I still get butterflies when England are playing.
I miss walking out of the tunnel, the 90 minutes and the adrenalin rush that I'll never, ever replace.
I don't watch a lot of TV, to be honest. With three kids I have my hands full.
I didn't watch cartoons, I was too busy playing football.
Whenever I have any spare time I have a game of golf.
I don't know what I believe in. I try not to think about it. I don't want to think about it.
The fans have what they want. They want entertainment, they want passion and they want commitment.
