Cullen was excellent tonight. I watched him against Millwall at the same stage last year and based on tonights performance he has come on leaps and bounds. Very, very promising player we have here.

He had a great game-good vision, good ball carrying, quick feet, precise passing and very vocal. He should be fast tracked into the first team squad. Watch out Mark Noble!

City continued to dictate the play without finding that one clear opportunity. Josh Cullen was seeing plenty of the ball and he found Mark Marshall for a deep cross that was headed over by James Meredith making a foray into the box.


The Bantams had the strange sensation of attacking an empty Bradford End after the break.

But they were quickly into their stride. Marshall drove wide and Cullen threatened to end a nine-month wait for a second goal with a curling free-kick that Cairns tipped wide.


Tony McMahon’s set-piece delivery had been good and when he tried to get in on the shooting act after swapping passes with Cullen, it needed a big block from Ashley Eastham to deny his goal-bound attempt.

Edit - Pictures too large but a good one of Cullen on the ball and then taking a free kick

So is Toni Martinez available for our match at Burnley next weekend?

If he is, given the state of our squad, he should be starting!

Can't quite understand how some of Chelsea's loanees can play for them but ours can't play for us

Josh Cullen: EFL Young Player award for Bradford's on-loan West Ham midfielder

Image

You know as a footballer that the fans have taken to you when you get your own chant, but Bradford City's on-loan midfielder Josh Cullen has a pretty unique one.

Sung to the tune of "Achy Breaky Heart" by Billy Ray Cyrus, the 21-year-old is compared favourably to France legend Zinedine Zidane in the chorus by the Bantams faithful.

His form has not just been noticed on the terraces, as the Republic of Ireland Under-21 man has won the EFL's Young Player of the Month award for April.

"It's nice to hear that from the stands, but the main thing is the result and playing for the team," Cullen, who is on loan at Bradford from West Ham, told BBC Sport.

"It's another one you dream of, a bit of a surreal feeling as a young player hearing it.

"It is a good feeling but I think you've got to try to blank that out as much as possible - obviously you appreciate the support, but when it comes to business you focus about what is happening on the pitch.

"It's obviously a bit far to say I'm better than Zidane, but it's a good feeling to have that support from the fans and I can only say thank you to them."

After joining Bradford on loan towards the end of last season, Cullen has spent the whole of 2016-17 with the League One club.

Southend-born Cullen has played 45 times, including scoring his first, and only so far, professional goal against MK Dons.

"I can't thank everyone at the club and the surrounding area enough to make me feel welcome and making sure that everything is OK with me on and off the pitch," he added.

"It's the first time I've been away from home for a long period of time and it's been brilliant."

His final appearance for Bradford before returning to the Premier League club for pre-season will be the League One play-off final against Millwall at Wembley on Saturday.

The Bantams, who lost at the the semi-final stage to the Lions last season, are looking to return to second-tier football for the first time since 2004.

"It would be silly of me to say this is not a massive game - probably one of the biggest in my career to date," he said.

"I'm looking forward to the occasion without getting too carried away - you've got the play the game and treat it as a normal game. If we do that, hopefully we won't go too far wrong.

"When you're a young lad running around in the garden it's one of the stadiums you dream of playing at. It's the first time I've played there and hopefully the first of a few times."

Cullen made his debut for West Ham against FC Lusitans in the Europa League in July 2015 and made four outings for the Hammers, including one substitute appearance in the Premier League.

He played for England's youth teams growing up, but switched his allegiance to Republic of Ireland and has featured for their Under-18, Under-19 and Under-21 sides.

The boyhood West Ham fan wants to make his mark at his parent club, but would not rule out a return to West Yorkshire.

"At the minute my main focus is to get into the West Ham first team - that is what the whole loan has been about," added Cullen.

"The main goal for me, and my dream growing up, is to play for West Ham and that is still what I'm striving to achieve."

Bradford City midfielder Josh Cullen wins Young Player of Month award

Image

JOSH CULLEN has received a pre-play-off final boost after being named the EFL Young Player of the Month for April.

Cullen has been a model of consistency in the heart of the Bantams midfield this season and he carried his fine form into the final month of the Sky Bet League One campaign.

The 21-year-old, who is on loan from West Ham United, delivered a string of impressive displays in April, as City ensured a top-five finish with 13 points from a possible 18.

Upon receiving the award, Cullen said: "It's a nice achievement for me personally to pick up, so I'm delighted to receive the award, especially at such an important time of the season.

"I've just tried doing what I've been doing all season and it's great to be rewarded.”

The accolade has previously been won by the likes of Dele Alli, Wilfried Zaha and Jonjo Shelvey during their younger years.

Bantams boss Stuart McCall had high praise for Cullen, who is sure to have a key role in tomorrow's promotion clash with Millwall at Wembley.

He said: “Josh's knowledge of the game is superb. He could have won this award any month to be honest because his consistency has been fantastic. I can’t keep speaking highly enough of him, he’s barely had a bad game.

“He’s mature beyond his years as a player; you’d think he’d been in the game a long, long time. He plays like a seasoned pro and he’s still such a young age.”

Walsall manager in talks with West Ham over re-signing Dobson

Walsall manager Jon Whitney has revealed that his club are locked in transfer talks with West Ham over the potential loan signing of midfielder George Dobson.

Speaking to the Express & Star, Whitney claimed negotiations are ongoing and stated his desire to bring the Hammers’ academy prospect back to the Bescot Stadium for a second successive season. “I am still speaking to West Ham about George,” Whitney said. “I am still negotiating on that. But George is a player I like and I’m keen for him to come back. At this precise moment I’m really prioritising a couple of other positions. But George is still in the mix and I am still in contact with him.”

Dobson, 19, spent the entire 2016-17 season on loan with the Midlands club, who currently ply their trade in League One. The defensive midfielder made a total of 26 league and cup appearances for the Saddlers as Whitney’s side finished in 14th place in England’s third tier. Walsall’s number six even scored the first senior goal of his career for Walsall in a League One clash against Fleetwood Town, but failed to help his side prevent a 2-1 loss in October.

West Ham set to loan Reece Oxford to Borussia Monchengladbach

West Ham's Reece Oxford is joining Borussia Monchengladbach on a season-long loan.

The England prospect, 18, is going to Germany to help his development as manager Slaven Bilic sees the versatile defender as a big part of the Hammers ' future.

Oxford has found his opportunities limited at West Ham despite signing a long-term deal.

After a disappointing loan spell at Championship playoff finalists Reading saw him make just five league appearances, they want to see him go out and get more games under his belt.

Classy Oxford can also play in midfield, and the hope is the Bundesliga experience will boost his chances of becoming a first-team regular for his parent club.
