Loads of Charlton Athletic fans were thoroughly impressed with Josh Cullen after the midfielder made his long-awaited return from injury on Wednesday night.
Cullen had been missing since the end of November after tearing ligaments in his ankle in a 2-2 draw with Cardiff City at The Valley but returned to the starting line-up to face Fulham last night, completing the full 90 minutes.
QUIZ: Can you name these 11 Charlton Athletic flops?
Since returning on loan from West Ham during the summer transfer window, Cullen has made 17 appearances and scored once, assisting a goal as well in that time.
He was a crucial part of the side which won promotion from League One last season too, assisting seven goals and netting two over the cource of 35 games.
And it was a typically industrious and controlled display from the 23-year-old against Scott Parker’s promotion chasers last night and one which really caught the attention of the fans…
Last night tells us how crucial Cullen is to #cafc. Long layoff & he comes straight back in against a good side & plays 90 mins as if he's never been away. Only trouble is, he's not our player. If ESI could get him permanently I would happily see nobody else come through the door

I must say that having josh Cullen back was like having a new signing. Keep him Taylor and Williams fit till the end of the season and sign some quality like Maddison. I have no doubt we’ll be ok. No negativity from now on just positive vibes come you reds #cafc
