Goalkeeper David Button is excited by the mood in the Brentford squad going into the new season.
The changes at Griffin Park have been well documented with popular manager Mark Warburton replaced by head coach Marinus Dijkhuizen.
Players, by and large, are very adaptable and Button has already warmed to the Dutchman and is excited by the Bees' prospects for the new season.
He said: “The club are leaving no stone unturned. There's a good feel in the camp. The head coach is settling in well and the players seem to like him. He's a good man manager. It's been good on the whole.”
Who will finish higher in the Championship?
1000+ VOTES SO FAR
Brentford have brought in a raft of new players including Akaki Gogia, Ryan Williams, Josh McEachran, Andreas Bjelland, Konstantin Kerschbaumer, Yoann Barbet before adding Philipp Hofmann and Lasse Vibe this week.
And Button spoke of his admiration for the new players after the Bees' 3-0 win over Boreham Wood.
He said: “They all seem like good guys and good players. They fit in well in the dressing room. They've impressed so far and there's healthy competition in the group.”
Button has been installed as Dijkhuizen's number one and the Dutchman spoke at his unveiling about being impressed by the Bees stopper.
But the goalkeeper is just keen to retain that status as the first choice player between the sticks.
He added: “It's nice to hear that and, hopefully, he has the same opinion after working with me day in day out.”
“I was fairly pleased with how the season went last year but I'm always looking to improve. There are a few aspects I'd like to get better on.
“If we can have a good team as individuals and as a whole, we can do well again.”
Button knows, though, that if he loses form Jack Bonham is waiting in the wings to take over.
The stopper said: “He's a very talented boy and he's got a bright future. I'm sure people can see how good he is. He's certainly pushing me and we have good fun in training.”
