Read an article where Moyes is suggesting that Yakubu is winning over the doubters. I have never doubted Yakubu's credentials, his goal-scoring recored speaks for itself. Even when he looked out of sorts I never once thought he might not be very good. I feel his goals are coming because of the way we are starting to play.
Instead of launching long balls up to him and hoping for the best we are actually trying to use the midfield and create chances for the striker(s). As long as we keep trying to create goal scoring opportunities through the use of midfield he should score goals. On another note: I'm beginning to like the five man midfield although I'd prefer two up front but as long as we are winning why change it?

People talk about his goals but for me judging by the last 4-5 games his all round game is brilliant if you play to his strengths. His pace, strength and finishing are the most recognized but I’ve bee impressed with his vision, passing, hold up play and bring other into play. Anyone who doesn’t agree with me watch the games over again and you will see for yourself. He is not just a goal poacher as David Prentice said he scores a variety of goals. The way he was linking up with Pienaar against Birmingham was a joy to see.
In terms of natural ability he is miles ahead of Andy Johnson and all in all he is a better play. No he wont run as much but he will score more goals.
4 goals in 8 starts is a great start to his Everton career and lets hope he continues this.

All I know is the poor form coincided with the crap football we were playing - same for AJ!!!
You watch AJ bang them in now were playing FOOTball!
No wonder yakubu looked lazy, hoofball is like a fish out of water to him.
