The 22-year-old midfielder reckons the arrival of four new players, and Lambertâ€™s fresh passing philosophy, has given the players a spring in their step.
â€śThe signings that weâ€™ve made so far have definitely strengthened the squad and itâ€™s probably the best pre-season Iâ€™ve been involved in,â€ť Delph told the Birmingham Mail.
â€śIâ€™m only young but itâ€™s the best one Iâ€™ve been in so far and everybody seems to be fired up.
â€śThe way we set up to play football from the back to the front through the middle is really good and I think it will set us in stead for the start of the season.
â€śDefensively weâ€™ve always been strong, but last season was a bit difficult for us.
â€śWeâ€™ve set out a different way. Itâ€™s always better to be working hard with the ball rather than without it.
â€śIt seems a lot easier when youâ€™ve got the ball and weâ€™re all happy and weâ€™re all raring to go.â€ť
