Ireland U19 international, scored an injury time winner for West Ham U21s away to Chelsea in Stamford Bridge on Friday night. Nice finish too.

He made a late appearance as a sub at Anfield yesterday. One to keep an eye out for.

Yeah that was his premier league debut yesterday - at 19.

Had been in the matchday squad a good few times last season so its great he finally got a game.

Let's hope he is good enough to carve out a Premier League career with a lower mid-table team or a career in the higher echelons of the Championship.

If he turns out any better than that it will be the same story it was/is with Rooney, Cahill, Bamford, Grealish, Noble, Naughton, Redmond, Kane, Pilkington etc etc etc. Either play for England or keep us waiting a few years.

If he is like Sean St Ledger or Jon Walters then he could be a decent squad player in the future for us.

That is the pragmatic reality of it. I don't think we are ever going to get a top class English born player to play for us.

West Ham United have announced that Josh Cullen has signed a new long-term contract with the club.

"I'm delighted to get the deal done and extend my time at West Ham," said Cullen, who turned 19 in April and has now committed his future to West Ham until 2018.

On the bench again today, as he was for the game against Everton just before the international break.

Not a bad place to be, 5 months short of his 20th birthday.

Surprisingly little talk about him on here.

Between himself and Jack Byrne as to who will be the next player to break through from the underage teams.

I think I read something a short while back during the height of the Grealish saga where he said he would not follow in Grealish's footsteps and switch to England.

So maybe he is still allowed to switch back?

I have also seen him refer to Ireland as "them" when talking about them so the Grealish thing may have been bluster on his part.

Of course fans are gonna be tentative, like a jilted lover LOL
But Grealish was always biding his time. Cullen apparently is on board.

"He's as Irish as could be now, there were a few Irish lads over there at the same time and we all hung around together.

"We used to tease him, call him a 'fake little Paddy', just to wind him up but he is fully on board with Ireland. Josh is an incredible player, he's very similar to Mark Noble but he's only 19 and has a long way to go."

So Cullen's Irish now? What was he before that? 

In Grealish's defence, his situation is a lot different to most granny rule players. He is a genuine talent regardless of his dip in form, and he has piqued the interest of the England senior team.

The way he went about things was duplicitous though. It was obvious he wanted to play for England. Fine, but don't take up squad places at underage level if your heart's not in it; and certainly don't take the piss out of us by turning up to the FAI Awards to pick up an award and to boost your publicity having neglected to accept several call ups.

From the horses mouth...now can we cencetrate om his performances..

"Everyone is entitled to make a decision for themselves and Jack has made his decision, I can only speak for myself and say that I am fully focused on playing for Ireland and getting this team to the U21 finals in Poland.


"Jack has made his call and that's up to him, I am proud to play for Ireland every time I pull on the shirt. I know my dad's very proud to see me play, he hopes to come over to this game tonight, it's such a proud moment for me to pull on that green shirt and represent my grandparents," says Cullen.

"Both of my grandparents on my dad's side are Irish, they were from Co Leitrim and moved over to England, where my dad was born.

"They have both passed away, unfortunately, but it's a very proud thing for me to be able to play for Ireland, every time I pull on that green jersey I play for them and think about my grandparents. I haven't been to Leitrim yet but I am on my dad's case to take me there," he joked.

Not sure if you're joking or not, but I'd say the correct rendering of the quote would be:
"He's as Irish as could be, now."

Maguire is not saying that Cullen has just become Irish. He's saying that Cullen is Irish.

Is that rendering of the quote not a bit of a reach, Declan?

And Jack Grealish and his father always waxed lyrical about their roots when asked about them and look how that turned out?

Anyways let's hope he can make the step that Grego-Cox, Harriman and Garmston haven't made and get established in the PL.

Are you constantly so cynical? Would you be as cynical if Cullen was say, Norwegian born, as you are of him because he's English born? He's said it makes him extremely proud to represent Ireland so why not believe him considering those are words from the source himself? Once again demonstrating your utter lack of respect for the motives of second gen. players.

Sky sources understand Bradford are set to sign West Ham midfielder Josh Cullen on a six month loan deal.

The 20-year-old  featured for West Ham in their friendly against Juventus yesterday and had a successful loan spell at Bradford last season.

We understand the deal will go through later today.

Hope we don't have to see the same old comments every time an English born player starts turning heads.

In fairness how many times have we been through the whole will he/won't he scenario, I think Cullen will stick with us but I'd like to see him capped against Moldova or something, providing that he wants the call up of course.

Looks a very good prospect alright, would benefit from being in an extended training squad panel for sure to give him a sniff of what it's like to mix it with the big boys.

I'd like to see more of him before we just start capping young lads in competitive games with under 30 professional league games under their belt mind.

The Oman game (wouldn't tie him down) but would be an ideal chance for Byrne, Cullen and one or two others to be capped and then possibly cut from the panel for the competitive game vs Georgia.

Josh is flying under the radar a bit, when I seen him play pre season for West Ham against Juventus he was superb and I have been following him regularly at Bradford and it's man of the match stuff week after week. Go on the Bradford forums to see what they think of him and you will see phrases like "best player in a decade at the club", "best player in league one" and "wasted at this level". Josh is a much better player than Forrester in my opinion but has not appeared on TV yet for people to realise it.

Cullen is an interesting player. It terms of style he's quite similar to Roy Keane - straight back, head up, always looking for the ball. He's not quick, but he's got a brain. He won't beat ten men and stick it in the top bin, but in a horrible looking Bradford team, he's one the few who can put a move together. He's definitely got a lot of promise.

Our last B team outing was against Nottingham Forest in 2008, we had played Scotland  B twice over the same period. There was a game between the B team and a LOI select in the 90s and we lost to England too since we beat them at the Cross

Ok but with the players that seem to be emerging do you think a b international would be any benefit

Don't see the point of B internationals, we play enough friendlys that the likes of Cullen, Egan, Hoban Forrester are given a run and be made feel part of the set up.

Only difference is with friendlies is they don't tend to cap that many new players. I can't see Kelly egan field Cullen Byrne horgan and possibly hewelt given a run. Home nations lol don't be so touchy lads

That would be one of us, NI, England, Scotland and Wales (colloquially speaking)

I love the way people are anxious to edit out our footballing history : we were playing matches in Dublin as 'Ireland' in the British Home Championship from 1884 onwards. Indeed, our only opponents during that period were England, Scotland and Wales.

It is one of the things that grates a lot when you live in the 'home countries', the reason they are referred to as the home countries is self-explanatory and shouldn't need an incorrect link to wikipedia.
Colloquially speaking we are not a home nation or in any way home nation, we may have been once, not now. That isn't 'airbrushing history', it is realising the present.

he deserves to be part of the WHU squad or even XI now. And I doubt he'll get a chance next season, they'll spend millions on some foreign CM. Anyway I think Cullen will end up playing for some championship team

One poster had him as his Bradford motm, most had Colin Doyle, others bemoaned his lack of creativity and his failure to 'dominate like he can'. This isn't having a go at Cullen, a quick look at anything Bradford City related shows how important he is for them, rather a dig at the peddling of myths that goes on by posters on here; it is completely unnecessary and benefits nobody to have people who watch him on twitter telling us he should be called up or that he is 'far too good for league one' when there is nothing to prove it. He is clearly an excellent prospect who is doing well at Bradford and will continue to progress with our 21s, for the moment at least.
It is funny that posters who over hype our players are the first to complain if the English get excited by a homegrown Premier League debutant.

Indeed, they love him there, which makes the need for lies even more baffling. There was no MOTM given by the Bradford City website or newspaper and the only official motm in leagues 1 and 2 is awarded by the home team, usually through sponsors. As Shrewsbury won and played well and Bradford the opposite, I very much doubt he was awarded an official anything, even if he seems to have been far from the worst offenders in a Bradford shirt.
It isn't even this instance that is particularly irksome, it is the constant narrative running through certain posters  offerings   on here. If an Irish player isn't picked he is 'being treated like sh*te', if he scores a goal or in some cases even plays a game 'MON should be looking at him' while the same lads come out with things like 'if Cullen was English he would be starting at West Ham'. Most of this knowledge comes from twitter, where this particular offending poster in question can , in certain cases, literally tell us what potential Irish internationals have for breakfast.
