Poor Calum Davenport

Calum Davenport has just been carried off the pitch in a neck brace in his first on loan match at Watford. I always thought he had it in him to get to the very top, but he’s never quite made it, either at Tottenham or West Ham. I feel really sorry for him tonight. Let’s hope that the injury is not as bad as might seem. I still believe he can be a great player, whether it’s at Upton Park or somewhere else.

    I have never had the same belief in Davenport. Saying that, I hope he recovers quickly and gets back out on the pitch again and proves me wrong.
    Get well soon Calum.

    I thought the boy was ok when he first came to us. Shame about the injury. Hope they had a long stretcher!

    feel sorry for Calum, and he’s never really been given a chance in my opionion. I feel Curbs didn’t give him a chance, gave him false hopes when they signed him then spat him out when he was surplus to requirements. I remember his game against Newcastle last season when he so nearly scored, if not for being off-side. I think if it had counted he would still be in the Hammers team today.

    Adrian Boothroyd says that he heard a crack in his neck and then his fingers went numb. Sounds rather unpleasant. Let’s hope it’s not as bad as that sounds and he can be back in action soon. Poor bloke.

    never really been given the chance he deserves, however……is one of the best headers of the ball ive seen for a while

    Calum must be one of the unluckiest players around, especially considering how good he could be. When he first came to us he was our best defender, possibly even our best player at times! I agree Iain, he will be great player somewhere, he certainly has all the attributes required of a central defender. Let’s hope the injury isn’t serious (although it sounds horrendous).

    I’m sure we all wish him well.

    wish him all the best and hope he gets better soon

  8. Dave King says:

    I quite rated him first time round as he looked cool and composed. I know Curbs panic bought him second time round, but what a waste of the lads time. Hope its not a career threatening injury and that he can move on somewhere where he will truly be appreciated. Good Luck Davs

  9. Plaistow54 says:

    Yes, hope it’s not serious & wish him a speedy recovery. He’s only been with us a year & a former U/21 England player. However he is young & fit & would be getting the best care possible. Good luck Calum.

    I agree that he has not been treated very well after a shocker at Charlton last season but who didnt?

    I wish him all the best, but lets be honest – he was completely inept for us in the games he played last season.

  14. WHU Kim says:

    I hope Callum comes through OK, fingers crossed.

  16. Ray S. says:

    When Upson first joined us i thought he would have a great partnership with Davenport.I think Calum’s been very unlucky with injuries,and never really got a chance with us.I really hope his neck injury isn’t serious,and he’s soon back playing.

  17. Sid says:

    Good luck Calum, sounds as though it could be serious, we as Tottenham fans are all rooting for you.

  18. West Ham Fan no 32 says:

    Best wishes Calum, get well soon.

  19. supernumbersix says:

    People are too quick and too harsh with their judgement sometimes (me too). Potentially a very good defender. He just hasn’t had the chance. Now this. Get well soon Mr Davenport.
