Under the influence of Tim Howard's recent praise by Neville Southall, I decided to go looking for some good Tim Howard video. Unfortunately there isn't much out there of him playing for Everton or Manchester United. However, I did find a video that was made to chronicle his days with the Metrostars in Major League Soccer after he signed with United.
