Championship roundup: Onomah earns point for Aston Villa against Bristol City

• Bristol City 1-1 Aston Villa
• Hull City 4-0 Bolton Wanderers

Josh Onomah struck a 64th-minute equaliser to earn Aston Villa a point from a full-blooded Championship clash with Bristol City at Ashton Gate. The on-loan Tottenham midfielder’s well-struck shot from 25 yards took a deflection off Marlon Pack to leave City goalkeeper Frank Fielding grasping at thin air.

Four minutes earlier the hosts had gone in front. Villa failed to clear a free-kick on the edge of their box, awarded for a foul by John Terry on Bobby Reid, and Jamie Paterson pounced to score with a low left-footed shot from 12 yards.

Championship round-up: Cardiff City break record with third consecutive win

• Cardiff City win opening three games for first time in their 118-year history
• Wolves beat Hull; Ipswich defeat Millwall; Middlesbrough overcome Burton

Cardiff City created club history as a 2-0 victory over Sheffield United kept them top of the Sky Bet Championship.

The Welsh club had never started a campaign with three league wins in their 118-year history but that odd statistic was consigned to history as Sean Morrison and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing put the gloss on a performance that suggests Cardiff may be credible promotion contenders this season.

Hull City equaliser denies John Terry a winning start with Aston Villa

John Terry presumably was not labouring under the assumption he had signed up for a leisurely stroll into retirement when he joined Aston Villa, but any faint notion life in the Championship will be easy, or even pleasurable, was dispelled on Saturday. His new side’s draw with Hull City was a broadly disjointed affair with occasional moments of quality and frequent spells of frustration. So, a fairly appropriate introduction to the Championship, then.

Football transfer rumours: Neymar to PSG for a world record fee?

Today’s fluff is written in the stars

That 6-1 clobbering Barcelona handed out to Paris Saint-Germain last March still weighs heavily on the minds of the French club. In fact, PSG are still seeing stars as a result of the thrashing. One star, in particular: Neymar, who PSG’s Qatari owners see dancing spryly around them every time they close their eyes. Rich folks shouldn’t have to suffer thus! Rich folks should be free to enjoy the wealth they worked hard to inherit!

PSG’s Qatari owners are said to be in talks with Barcelona, who have previously had close ties with the Gulf state, over triggering the Brazilian’s £195m buyout clause. That sounds like an outrageous amount of money to pay for a footballer until you consider how much money Qatar’s ruling regime reportedly pays for weapons, mass surveillance technology and so forth.

Premier League at 25: fans from all 47 clubs on their best and worst memories

Fans from the 47 clubs to have competed in the league reminisce about legends such as Paulo Wanchope, Duncan Ferguson, Juninho and Jay-Jay Okocha

Best moment: For all the rage of the last year (or two, or three, or four depending on if and when the stasis finally broke you), we have been rather blessed during the Premier League era. We have won the league at White Hart Lane, a ground that was demolished with Arsenal having won as many titles there as the home team have in their entire existence. We have won the league at Old Trafford, the home of our great rivals of the time. We have gone an entire season unbeaten. But it’s hard to remember a single moment where life was so perfect as when Tony Adams, Mr Arsenal himself, sprinted forward to bring down a chipped throughball from Steve Bould (!) and lash it home in front of the North Bank at Highbury in the glorious sunshine to seal our first Premier League title in 1997-98.

Crystal Palace want to tempt Marco Silva away from Porto move

• Silva has been in his native Portugal holding talks with Porto
• Steve Parish keen to move early after Allardyce resignation

Crystal Palace are exploring the possibility of appointing Marco Silva as Sam Allardyce’s successor as manager, but will have to deflect strong interest from FC Porto if they are to lure the Portuguese to south London.

Silva, whose Hull City team were relegated with a 4-0 defeat at Selhurst Park on the season’s penultimate weekend, spent Tuesday in his native Portugal holding talks with Porto and is understood to have reached a verbal agreement to move to Estádio do Dragão. He is due to meet with the Hull owners, the Allam family, on Wednesday to inform them of his intention to depart the KCom stadium after only five months.

A Premier League season of soap opera where football felt like background music | Barney Ronay

The 2016-17 season still had its drama – moments of brilliance and booming narrative arcs to be resolved – but it was less title race than well-ordered title jog

Farewell, then, to the year that almost was. This was a Premier League season that sparked with a controlled excitement, never quite caught fire but still dished up another digestible slice of high-end product.

Things kept on almost happening. Leicester City almost completed the most dramatic title-plus-relegation act of all time. But then it was all sort of OK. Marco Silva almost pulled off a minor managerial miracle – but somehow not quite. To great fanfare Tottenham Hotspur pulled to within one victory of being quite close to creeping up on Chelsea’s shoulder at the top – almost but not quite, leaving for the third season in a row not so much a title race as a well-ordered title jog.

Premier League: 10 talking points from the final weekend’s action

Jürgen Klopp must reinstate fear factor at Anfield; Southampton’s expectation levels threaten Claude Puel; Antonio Conte sees Arsenal as FA Cup favourites

Ronald Koeman was not in the mood to bite when the issue of Ross Barkley’s present and future was presented to him at the end of a flip-flop, relaxed, season-wind-down at Arsenal. Koeman gives the impression he would not be too fussed if an enigmatic homegrown talent headed for the exit during the close season. Still sitting on the contract offer from the club, Barkley was dropped to the bench this weekend and when he came on there was not much in the way of impact. “My focus is to improve the team,” Koeman said. “We will see if there is interest in players. They will knock on the door and talk to the board of the club and, if that happens, then we will speak to each other about that situation.” A statement on Barkley is due on Monday and it wouldn’t be a great surprise for the end of this Goodison story to be nigh.
