Alan Alexander Milne, better known as A. A. Milne, was an author and poet from England, who was particularly famous for being the creator of the character Winnie the Pooh. Milne was educated at the University of Cambridge and initially worked as a playwright; however it was as the writer of Winnie the Pooh in 1926 that he became famous. It was followed up by The House at Pooh Corner two year later. Other than that, he was a prolific writer who wrote children’s short story and poetry collections, newspaper columns, plays and had also been a columnist for the popular magazine Punch.
I took a big risk to come to Hull, I have to be honest. But I loved it there, I really did. Great club and great people.
As a 26-year-old player I had tried to understand why I was doing certain things and why the coach was telling me to do certain things. I started to view myself as a coach would.
I know a manager doesn't ever have time to look long-term. You have to support everything with results.
I have an ambition to win and you always must use it to drive you.
All of us, we know, not just in football but in life, that we cannot achieve important things without consistency.
You cannot be a winner without maturity and consistency.
I can't just look at my position as a job. It's my passion.
To see professionals working hard every day, making a big commitment to the club with a desire to improve every day is something I want. That's the only way they can play with me.
With good relationships and a good environment, you can achieve things more easily.
If I have an idea of football, and I am the manager, it doesn't make sense for the club to find players with a different profile.
I don't have doubts that Everton is a big club.
It's important to know as much as I can about the players.
