Julian Dicks gives insight into atmosphere at West Ham

West Ham Upton Park

Julian Dicks speaks positively about the atmosphere at West Ham United.

Julian Dicks has told West Ham United’s official website that the atmosphere at the club is good.

“There’s a good atmosphere around the club at the moment,” said the West Ham coach on the club’s official website. “They are a good bunch of lads and work hard in training.

“We all make mistakes and have bad games, which is part of football, but they work hard and there’s a very good atmosphere, as there always is when you’re playing well and winning games.”

Dicks made the comments prior to the weekend’s FA Cup fifth-round tie between Blackburn Rovers and West Ham.

Slaven Bilic’s won the game 5-1 at Ewood Park on Sunday afternoon and will now face Premier League rivals Manchester United away from home at Old Trafford in the quarter-finals of the prestigious cup competition.

West Ham are doing well in the Premier League, too, and there is a real buzz around the Boleyn Ground at the moment.

The players seem to be enjoying their football under manager Slaven Bilic, and there is a strong belief that the final season at the Boleyn Ground will be something special.

A top-four finish is probably beyond the Hammers, but the London outfit can certain end up in the top six and go all the way in the FA Cup.

West Ham will return to action this weekend when they take on Sunderland at the Boleyn Ground in the Premier League.
