About Charlie Adam:
Charles Graham is a Scottish footballer who plays as a midfielder for Stoke City and the Scotland national team.
Liverpool is such a big club, and I was fortunate to be one of a select few to have played for them. It was an amazing time.
I am at my best when I am scoring.
Losing a family member is extremely difficult for anyone to take. But the normal reaction is to want to get back to your work as soon as you can.
I want to learn from the mistakes my dad made.
What do folk always say about Arsenal? They can pass you to death.
Since I moved to Blackpool, I've met a lot of great people, and if it wasn't for them, I wouldn't be as successful as I was because I'm settled off the pitch.
It's funny being the big news every day - and the good news every day.
Life is settled and I'm enjoying it.
When you are happy and playing regular football, that can make life a lot easier.
I just love watching football. It doesn't matter what level it is, whether it's Fleetwood or Blackpool. I love to go and watch games.
Kenny Dalglish was the greatest to play for Liverpool and Scotland, so for someone like that to sign me was an honour.
When you leave a club like Liverpool, you have to go somewhere you'll feel comfortable and progress as a player. To come to Stoke was an easy decision.
I played in the Premier League for Blackpool and earned the right to go to a club like Liverpool.
I have respected every manager I have played under, but if you can't learn from someone like Mark Hughes, it is going to be hard for you.
I want to be a footballer - and that means playing on a Saturday afternoon.
I get recognised in the street, but that's more from all the Scottish people who are down in Blackpool on their holidays.
I play beside one of the unsung heroes in David Vaughan. It's a privilege to play with him: he is breathtaking at times.
When I make mistakes, I just get on with it. I don't try to impress with that killer pass to make sure everybody notices me.
Football's all about opinions, all of them different, whether from a top analyst or a man in a bunnet, and some folk are just never going to like you.
When a new manager comes in, you need to show him what you can do, but that may mean waiting for your opportunity.
