Lambert on Stoke City
Lambert returns to the bet365 Stadium this weekend.
He says: “I absolutely loved my time there. Mr Coates was absolutely brilliant, John Coates brilliant. Tony Scholes, Mark Cartwright… excellent.
“We were a penalty away from staying up, an own goal… we went to Leicester and played excellent, West Ham, got a draw at Anfield.
“We just fell short but effort wise, wee Joe, Crouchy, Jack, Bruno… they were excellent. The fans were terrific.
“It was really tough to take relegation. It was a club I never thought would go down. But the infrastructure it’s got is second to none. It’s got a terrific fan base. The squad they’ve got, they should probably be higher than what they are at this moment in time.”
