Paul Lambert: Has taken Norwich from the foot of League One to the Premier League
Paul Lambert is looking for Norwich to end the 2011/12 campaign on a high and provide a fitting ending to what has been a 'fairytale' season.
The Canaries have enjoyed their first taste of Premier League football in six years, with the step up from the Championship made to look easy.
They may have suffered three consecutive defeats in recent weeks to dent their hopes of securing a top-half finish, but Lambert admits he could not have asked for any more from his players.
Ahead of a trip to Arsenal on Saturday, he said: "It has been brilliant. The lads have been absolutely terrific for us and they have earned the right to go again.
"I can't fault them for what they have done and the way they have played in games. I'm proud of them."
Lambert has guided Norwich to back-to-back promotions from League One since taking over at Carrow Road in August 2009.
He continued: "If you are talking fairytale football this is the story that has happened over the past three years, to go from the bottom of League One to sustaining it in the Premier League.
"They have got 43 points, hopefully we can get a few more, but in the cold light of day it has been incredible.
"I never really think about myself. I have always said the most important people at the club are the players and the people who come and watch.
"I get great satisfaction from that and for the backroom staff."
