Supporters of West Ham United have been gushing over Julian Dicks after the Hammers posted footage of their former man to social media.

On Tuesday, the Irons shared footage of the 51-year-old former left-back scoring some goals for the club to mark the day on which he signed for the London outfit in 1988 (per West Ham), which had fans gushing.

To kick off this quiz on the goings-on at the London Stadium last week, according to Claret and Hugh, what is the supposed 'age ceiling' that David Moyes has set for signings?

Would you be happy to have a prime Julian Dicks back in West Ham's current squad?

Yes, he was absolutely class

Yes, he was absolutely class

No, we have got better now

The retired left-back had two stints with the Irons, having arrived from Birmingham City in 1988 before departing for Liverpool in 1993 (per Transfermarkt).

Dicks then returned to Upton Park a year later in 1994 and remained in London until 1999 when he went on a career break (per Transfermarkt), and supporters could not help themselves waxing lyrical over the 51-year-old.

What do we think?

As can be judged from the responses from West Ham supporters, it is clear to see that the retired left-back is well thought of by the London Stadium faithful.

What is also clear from the responses is that some supporters wish that David Moyes had a player of Dicks’ ilk in his current Hammers squad.
