I suppose it hacks me off sometimes when people go on about all the other stuff, because I have really worked hard at my game, and I've been incredibly dedicated in getting myself fit, and getting my game right.
People always seem to be interested in my private life because I'm married to a pop star.
People ask me why I keep getting injured but I have just had to accept it is one of those things that happen.
People have always thought of me as a passer of the ball, but you can't just be that these days.
But what goes on in my life outside of the game should be my business.
My dad knows the business, and he tells me I've got to do what's best for me.
I enjoy spending time at home or going out for a quiet meal in a restaurant.
I've been at Liverpool for eight years, and the time has come for us to start achieving.
I have always passed the ball and worked on that part of my game.
At no point was my career under threat, so I always knew that I would get back into action.
But I've never once thought that I wouldn't get back, as if you do think like that, then you're in trouble.
It's important we win and because of the players we have we should win some matches in style.
Although my dad Harry is the manager of West Ham, we get on very well.
I know I'm 25 now, but there's still that little lad inside me who likes his dad there to see him.
I'm looking out for myself, but I'm looking out for my dad, too.
