Christian Dailly praises exciting West Ham showings this season

The Hammers have impressed under Slaven Bilic this season.

Former West Ham United defender Christian Dailly has praised the current crop of players for their exciting football this season, in comments to the club’s official website.

The Hammers have enjoyed a fine first campaign under Slave Bilic challenging at the top half of the table for much of the season.

They currently sit sixth in the table and eight points behind Arsenal in fourth, albeit with a game in hand, and within a chance of securing Champions League football.

Key to their impressive season have been he flair players added in the summer, such as Dimitri Payet and Manuel Lanzini, both of who have proved to be astute signings.

One who has been impressed is former Hammer Dailly, who says they have ben really exciting to watch this year.

“It’s brilliant to see the team doing so well now,” he told

“It’s exciting. I think the crowd obviously always want everyone to give their all for the club, but you also want teams to be exciting.”

“There are a few teams this year who have the right types in there that allow other players to play. It’s made it exciting to watch and West Ham have been really exciting to watch this year.”

West Ham will now be hoping they can enjoy a strong end to the season to try and sneak into the top four.

The gap is no doubt a large one at this point, but given the unpredictable nature of this season so far then there is no ruling them out just yet.

They will need their luck to change though, with a series of controversial decisions having gone against them recently.
