Vaughn as much as he is annoying to listen to, he was a much better captain than huss. However, huss had a far weaker side. 

In a way Hussain was what Ganguly was for India in the early 2000's.


England was minnow level with lots of bits and pieces players throughout the 90's and early 2000's (Hollioke brothers, Irani, Ramprakash, Mark Ealham, etc,).


Although they had good bowlers like Gough/ Caddick etc, their batting almost always collapsed away from home (even at home lost to Pakistan in 1996, NZ in 1999, Aus in 1997/ 2001, etc).


Under Hussain, they started fighting and building a new team. Their most defining moment was in 2000 when they beat Pakistan in Pakistan and started to compete evrywhere before Vaughan took over in 2004 IIRC
