Centre Midfield: David Howells
Then: David Howells was Tottenham through and through. After making his debut for the club as a schoolboy in 1988, he went on to play over 200 times for the North London side. While he started his career as a striker, by the later stages of his career, Howells was predominantly utilised as a defensive midfielder. While he was no means a fan favourite, he provided an engine in the centre of the park and was a real leader of men. As the 1997-98 season approached, Howells was increasingly troubled by a persistent knee injury.
Now: According to several reports, Howell currently runs a string of soccer schools in eight countries around Europe and, in his spare time, enjoys a spot of Sunday League. His career at Tottenham ended shortly after the 1997-98 season when he signed for fellow Premier League side, Southampton. However, his knee injuries eventually got the better of him and, in 2000, he ended his career in the top flight.
