My last blog… This one might sound strange but I love Dean Smith’s reaction when the interviewer says the 2-0 win over Bolton was a ‘convincing display.’

He retorts, “I thought we were average tonight to be honest.”

Obviously, there are still improvements to be made and nobody is denying that, but a second win for Smith is a second win and the performance was another step – Smith criticising the showing and pointing out that there was a ‘distinct averageness’ to lots of our play tells its own message.

Jordan Lyden? I do wonder if he will make a return. Smith does like to develop younger players, so maybe. Read more: Midfielder reveals Aston Villa could agree new deal on one condition

Heard mixed things on this player since he went on loan. I always really fancied he’d be our star. I wonder now if the injuries will at any stage be put behind him or if they will be the reason he never quite makes it?

On-loan winger returning from injury, can he impress Aston Villa’s scouts?

Very good this! They were laughing a little too loudly, not that they could hear themselves over the poxy clapper things the club gave them.

Fulham fans did go rather overboard laughing at us after our no-show (1st half mostly) at Wembley. I’m not sure how loud they were laughing because their club hadn’t provided them with more clapper monstrosities and they’d not be able to make the noise themselves obviously.

Aston Villa youngster Rushian Hepburn-Murphy is on the road back to recovery after being hit with injury in 2018/19.

Big things continue to be hoped for from the 20-year-old striker following his early substitute debut in the clash against Sunderland back in 2014/15, but since then he has only made 13 sub showings in league competition, with four appearances in the domestic cups.
