James Vaughan has now scored 5 league goals compared with only 2 from Saha, Beckford and Yakubu.
Some may say it's in a different league but most Championship teams are on a par with the vast majority of Premier League teams. And Vaughan is also playing in a struggling team so it's even more commendable.
He's been fit all season and scoring while our 3 have missed chance after chance... so let's keep ignoring the obvious!

We need new strikers, not the same ones who have already shown to be not up to scratch.

As much as I'd love for Vaughan to be the answer he'll most likely be another misfiring one for us.

I watched him a few times this season, he's been impressive, hasn't lost any of his pace or fight. I'd rather have him coming on in the last 20 than any of the current crop. Won't happen though, Moyes picks his teams in order of seniority.

In fact I wish he was back because he, out of all the strikers, is the one with pace and can intimidate defenders.

There is only one striker we should be thinking of, and that's Beckford. When he has started 5 games and not been taken out at half-time, and is still missing sitters, then I will be the first to call for change but believe me ? I will want something better than Vaughan up front...

Put him up front with Beckford. After intensive coaching they will be more than a match for PL defenses.
Go for diamond with Cahill at the tip. Get Donovan for wide right and Pienaar wide left. Offer Pienaar an extra bag of crisps and a bottle of Merlot and he'll stay.
Big fella at the bottom of diamond.
Bench Arteta because at the moment he's shite. Make Rodwell wait or put him on when two- or three-nil up.
Drop Jags. Put Heitzilberger with Distan and Baines left, Coleman right full backs.
Set aside, then cook (whilst normal team formation plays) at Finch, till the end of the season.
Then serve piping hot for next season and tell them if they don't qualify for the CL then they're all sacked and Beckham (the hero) will come in on his own and play a 1 formation (because that's what the meeja still thinks he can do).
Joking aside, if Pienaar goes, then go for Gueye on the left. Whatever happens, Vaughan and Beckford up front. Fast as fuck and hungry to boot.

Personally, I think he has been badly handled by Moyes. Bring him back at Goodison and allow Vaughan & Beckford up front. 2 young, hungry, fast strikers will worry any defense.
