And the Terminator, as he was affectionately known by the Upton Park faithful, has been speaking to the club's official website about his feelings on the club's impending move to the Olympic Stadium next summer.
Olympic Park has recently dazzled onlookers and fans attending Rugby World Cup matches hosted at the stadium.
And while this season promises to be an emotional one as they wave goodbye to one of English football's most famous grounds, there is also an air of excitement about what the future may hold.
But hardman Dicks, who also played for Liverpool and Birmingham, has admitted he will be crying inside when it comes to the last game against Swansea City in May.
"The last year at Upton Park for me is going to be very emotional because I had 11 fantastic years here," Dicks told whufc.com.
"Listen I had many ups and downs, but playing at this stadium was incredible and in front of those fans, especially in the night games. For me they're the best fans that I've played in front of.
"I know football moves on but I will miss Upton Park like you'll never believe.
"If the Olympic Stadium can be as half as good as Upton Park then it will be a great place to play football.
"I won't cry, but listen inside I will be."
Graced by the greats
The ground has been graced by the likes of England World Cup-winning trio Bobby Moore, Sir Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters, Billy Bonds, Sir Trevor Brooking, Paolo Di Canio, Carlos Tevez and countless greats from opposing teams over the years.
So when they do depart after that final game against Swansea in May, Dicks won't be the only one crying inside.
