Personally I don't think so. He's captain, and from what I can tell that's all he is.

He's the skipper and he does a damn fine job IMO.

He is a good captain, I'm not disputing that but what I think was wrong was him automatically being picked when he hadn't even played a Test match for 18 months. I'm sure there are young players in the county game who have consistantly made good scores and aren't getting a look into the national side because Vaughan always has to be there. I think it's unfair on the players who play well but because Vaughan is living off his reputation of 5 years ago, aren't getting picked. Yeah he made a hundred at Headingly but he has occasionally made a good score. I don't think he should be picked for the ''he might make a score this time around''. Let's give someone else who has proven their form ago..
Solely? No. There were a good few reasons why we won in 2005. Vaughan's good captaincy was indeed one of them, but only one.
And similarly, the lack of his captaincy was only one of the reasons we lost so badly in 2006\07. And I honestly think that had he been present for it and everything else been the same we might well have lost by the same margin nonetheless.
One of the best strategies might have been getting Hayden and Symonds given lbw when they were out... but oh well.

I dissagree he's a captain and he's not doing that bad.
Everyone wants to change the world, noone wants to change himself.
I don't really know if he has or he hasn't, but I could do without him referring to himself in the third person tho. It's either the sign of a ego running mad or that he's taking too much for granted.
Plus it's a bit WWE, isn't it? "The best thing for England is a fit Michael Vaughan. You hear that Sarwan? Michael Vaughan is coming for ya".

"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."
