I remember Nayim at Tottenham dived all over the place, and we used to say to him, 'What are you doing?' You do talk about it.

Most of my best games were when I felt crap - I could hardly move on the morning of the World Cup semi-final in 1990 - but there's a thing called adrenaline that gets you through.

I've had hundreds of requests from journalists all over the world asking me to speak about Leicester, which is astonishing. It's captured the imagination.

I think I'm expected to behave in a certain manner.

Must say though, I'm rather chuffed to have been called a 'luvvie'.

Football is a simple game. Twenty-two men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans always win.

I've quite often written tweets that I think are across that line, but I just delete them.

Our games are not always the best, but they are exciting, which is what people love to see.

We are in the entertainment business and we all know if you are top of the tree you get the big money. Those of us who have been in it are the fortunate ones but we understand that we probably don't deserve it as much as the nurses or teachers.

I hear it all the time in the street: 'It's the crisp bloke.'

On TV, if you fluff your lines, nobody gives a toss. But if you fluff a penalty in the World Cup, well - we all know how much that matters.

I'm not that moody. I don't have big ups and downs.

I generally have a brand of brief on every day.

The possibility that a provincial town could win the League completely bucks the trend.

It would be a great adventure for Leicester to be in the Champions League.

Diving is a really, really difficult one because a player is the only one who genuinely knows whether they have dived. You can look at it at 40 different angles and not know. And you can just fall over, too.

The best, most successful managers in the modern era are those who can keep a player happy even if he is not in the team. Given the size of the squads and the use of rotation nowadays, that's tougher than it's ever been.

What you learn is that you can't please everyone all the time.

This whole science thing of working out if players are a little bit tired just gives you an excuse to leave them out.

Are people like Tom Cruise in touch with their public? I doubt it. Footballers are more like the rock stars of yester-year: they are box office.

When I retired in 1994, I was never tempted to drop down the divisions to carry on playing. In fact, I never kicked a ball again, not even in a charity match.

If you are at the top in entertainment, you earn money that you can never justify to ordinary people doing proper jobs. You can't.

Kids are learning to play. That's why we're seeing an emergence. That's why we're seeing the Under-17s and Under-20s doing better in international football.

I know I could never be in a pop band. I honestly have an appalling voice.

Ferrari or Lamborghini. Never fancied one of those - too flash for me. I don't really like seeking too much attention.

My fiancee's brother-in-law was recently paralysed in an accident and it really brought home the fact that thousands of young people live with spinal injuries. It's an issue I wish had more coverage.

It's true: a lot of sportspeople really struggle to find something to do when they finish. It tips them into all sorts of strange things. With ex-footballers, it's really scary. I think 70% of them get divorced within five years. It's hard. You go from being really famous to not that famous. Your salary drops through the floor.

Presenting football is something that I love to do. I'm very fortunate being able to do one of the BBC's flagship shows.

This whole 'tired footballers' and three-games-a-week thing is an absolute myth.

In terms of politics, I just look at people's policies, and sometimes I agree with something, sometimes I won't.

I am not leaving twitter. If the mindless few defeat the thoughtful majority we are all doomed.

World Cups can be career-defining.

Basically, Walkers are putting real produce into their flavours, so the cheese and onion flavour is actually cheese and onion rather than just flavourings.

Football's the big cheese, if you like. It's easy to have a swipe. There's a lot of footballers, and when they fall foul, they become big news.

It's only a matter of time before the English clubs become a lot more competitive in Europe, if not dominant, because our league is, by far, the richest league in the world.

The competitive nature of most mums and dads is astounding. The fear they instil in our promising but sensitive Johnny is utterly depressing. We need a parental cultural revolution.

Being called Gary. It's a crap name. I wish I'd been called by my middle name, Winston.

The Leicester story is great for the game in England. It's great for the appreciation of the Premier League.

I know I am extraordinarily lucky to be doing what I am doing. I have worked hard along the way and I have been blessed too. I have had a great life.

The train's always full of football fans going up to see matches. Oh, they make sure I hear their points of view all right. They all want to have their say about their team, and make their opinions known.

We have got too many kids around the house to have a romantic meal at home. But Danielle is a fantastic cook. She does a brilliant lasagne, great roasts and a great chilli dish. She knows the way to my heart.

I've got about 5 million followers on Twitter, and if I tweet anything, there will be faux outrage.

I watched Leicester City lose in the 1969 FA Cup final with my dad and granddad when I was eight and cried all the way home. I have seen them get promoted and relegated. I played for them for eight years. I even got a group of like-minded fans and friends to stump up a few quid to salvage the club when they went into liquidation.

That's what being a footballer is, really: you train at this time, you finish at that time, then you do that, then you go home, then you're not allowed out, then you do this... there comes a point in your career - about thirty, thirty-one - when you get a bit sick of being screamed at.

I just think to be a manager you've got to live and breathe and have this incredible enthusiasm for football, the whole thing. And while I love the game, and it's been a large part of my life, it's not the only thing in my life.

Twitter has been a godsend for travelling.

Some players are quite homely, and they don't see themselves going abroad; others would relish the challenge. I can only speak personally, but I always wanted the challenge, and to go and live in a place like Barcelona was great.

In terms of the pricing of football tickets, there's no need - given the massive amount of money that's coming in now from television rights, there's no need for them to be greedy. Look after the supporters; make sure they can still afford to go and watch football.

You never know how long a player has left, especially with strikers. Once you turn 30, as a striker, you are usually on the way down, and playing from the age of 16, at such a high level, has to take its toll.
