CALUM DAVENPORT (2004 & 2007 - 2010) Born this day Bedford, Bedfordshire

 

England Under-21 international who progressed through the ranks to make his senior debut for already-relegated Coventry City on the final day of the 2000-01 season. Joined Tottenham Hotspur in August 2004 for £3.5m and the giant central-defender was immediately off-loaded for a loan spell to the Hammers on 9 September 2004. Davenport made his West Ham bow two days later against Sheffield United in a 2-1 victory at Bramall Lane. Having performed brilliantly and making a total of 10 Coca-Cola appearances the North London club recalled him back to White Hart Lane in November.

Davenport rejoined West Ham United for an undisclosed fee, reported to be £3,000,000 on 18 January 2007 signing a three and a half year contract. On 18 January 2008, he joined Championship side Watford on a month's loan, with a view to a permanent deal. Davenport made his debut against Charlton Athletic on 19 January 2008, but had to be substituted before half-time after a collision with team-mate Darius Henderson. He was stretchered off and taken to hospital, where he spent a number of days and was diagnosed with a fracture to a bone in his neck. His injury meant the loan deal was cancelled. After a lengthy spell on the sidelines he returned to competitive action for the start of the 2008-2009 campaign. He scored his first goal for the Hammers against Blackburn Rovers on 30 August 2008. On 2 February 2009 he joined Premier League club Sunderland on loan until the end of the 2008–09 season. He made eight appearances for the Black Cats. Davenport returned to West Ham for the start of the 2009–10 season but in August was involved in a stabbing incident. He did not play again for West Ham and in March 2010 his contract was terminated by mutual consent. In his second spell with West Ham he played fourteen games in all competitions scoring one goal.

The New Year opened with a local derby at the Boleyn Ground against Tottenham Hotspur. The Hammers were plagued by injuries and manager Lyall was without Brooking, Bonds, Paul Brush, Paul Goddard, Frank Lampard and Neil Orr. Youngsters Alan Dickens and 17-year-old Tony Cottee were drafted into the side. The crucial first goal fell to West Ham on 26 minutes when Joe Gallagher headed against the crossbar and Cottee nodded the rebound into the net. Midway through the second half, Devonshire sped away and was upended in the area and Ray Stewart scored from the resultant penalty. On 76 minutes acting captain Pike swept home Devonshire's pass and the Hammers held out for a resounding 3-0 victory. For Cottee it was a day to remember, as he scored on his debut and was given the match ball to take home.

EMANUEL POGATETZ (2012) Born this day Graz, Austria

Pogatetz won the Austrian Cup with FC Karnten in his first season as a professional in 2000/01, earning a move to German club and then-UEFA Champions League regulars Bayer 04 Leverkusen. Pogatetz spent four seasons with Leverkusen, during which time he was loaned to Swiss side FC Aarau, his hometown club Grazer AK and Russian outfit Spartak Moscow. The versatile defender earned a move to the Premier League in June 2005, when one-time England manager Steve McClaren spent £1.8m to take him to Middlesbrough. Pogatetz made 158 appearances in five seasons at the Riverside Stadium, helping Middlesbrough to reach the UEFA Cup final in his first season on Teesside, only to miss the 4-0 defeat by Sevilla after fracturing his eye socket in a quarter-final victory over FC Basel. During the 2007-08 season, Pogatetz was appointed Middlesbrough captain, however, the Boro club were relegated in 2009, but Pogatetz stayed loyal to the cause as they started life in the Championship. A recurrence, meanwhile, of his fractured cheekbone restricted his first-team appearances. Pogatetz was snapped up by German side Hannover in June 2010, helping the club to reach the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals in 2011-12 and totalling 72 appearances over two seasons. That prompted a move from Bundesliga rivals Vfl Wolfsburg. The Austrian international signed for West Ham United on 28 January 2013, putting pen to a paper on a loan deal from Vfl Wolfsburg until the end of the season. Pogatetz made his West Ham United bow against Swansea City, on 2 February 2013, albeit as a last-gasp substitute appearance. With his loan deal at an end he totalled just 6 appearances of which five were from the bench.

ALVARO ARBELOA (2016-17) Born this day Salamanca, Spain

Arbeloa came through the youth ranks at Real Zaragoza before joining Real Madrid at the age of 18. He excelled for the club’s C and B teams before being handed a first-team debut against Real Betis in October 2004. With massive competition for places at the Estadio Santiagio Bernabeu, where Spain international Michel Salgado and Brazil great Roberto Carlos filled the full-back positions, Arbeloa opted to continue his career with Deportivo La Coruna in summer 2006. After six months in Galicia, the defender was signed by compatriot Rafael Benitez, who was in the midst of his successful reign as Liverpool manager.Arbeloa appeared 98 times over two-and-a-half seasons with the Anfield club, including the 2007 UEFA Champions League final defeat by AC Milan.July 2009 saw the versatile player heading back to former club Real Madrid, where he spent the next six seasons as a regular member of the starting XI, initially at left-back and latterly at right-back. Capped 56 times by Spain, Arbeloa was a member of the best squad in the country’s history. On 31 August 2016, the 33-year-old returned to the Premier League for the first time in seven years, signing for West Ham United for one season. He made his debut on 21 September, playing the full 90 minutes in a 1–0 home win over Accrington Stanley for the EFL Cup. Arbeloa was released at the end of the campaign after having made just four competitive appearances, three in the league. He retired in June 2017 at the age of 34, after a professional career that spanned 15 years.
