MATCH QUOTES

โ€œItโ€™s a long project. Itโ€™s never going to happen overnight. I thought today we were well worth something. They are a young side but they are growing every time they play. โ€œItโ€™s a really tough run we have had with Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal. โ€œPeople might have thought we would get nothing. We have got a point but the performances have been excellent.โ€ Paul Lambert forgetting West Ham, Everton, Newcastle, Southampton, Albion, Tottenham, Fulham and Norwich, Saturday, 24 November 2012.
