    It's Squiresday again: https://www.theguardian.com/footbal...ter-citys-dominance-and-football-whataboutery

    The 'cut out and keep picture of Vincent Kompany' panel after the the ones about the anti-City media conspiracy :lol:

    (and is that Ned Stark with his head sewn back on in one of the last panels? Is Sean Bean a Sheffield United supporter or something?

    Ah, found it, he was born in Sheffield)

    Didn't he have a movie where he's a drunk that plays for Sheiffield United and he actually scores against us?

    That's where my knowledge of english pop culture is definitely overreached, I'm just a poor continental :D
    No idea how Squires does all this from the other side of the globe.

    Presumably from spending an extraordinary amount of time on English twitter. I spend too much time on there myself but he always has a twitter in joke or two in his cartoon that go right over my head.

    They certainly aren't as hilarious as some people make them out to be.

    Well there are as different tastes in humor as in all things.

    They are mildly amusing, not multiple green smiley rip snortingly hilarious.

    For me it's exactly his understated kind of humor that, at times, has the power to really crack me up with actual audible laughter ^^

    I don't find them funny either but humour is subjective.

    In a world of my own. People know me here.
    It's excellent satire that gives us the chance to laugh at ourselves, & at others. The Kompany/Salah piece, & the 'Bullseye' one with Jim Bowen showing Klopp what he 'could' have won, both had me chuckling very loudly.

    I get the impression he's not a big Liverpool fan. Karius as the streaker though, and Kane in VvD's pocket :lol:

    I honestly don't know, but if he is, he certainly doesn't let it show in his comics.
