It's Squiresday again: https://www.theguardian.com/football/ng-interactive/2019/may/21/david-squires-on-manchester-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)

And aye he's a Sheffield United fan, so is Mark Addy I believe coincidentally.

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

The comments are where it's at

Well, that was worth waiting for. Brilliant, Mr Squires, on the Gunnersaurus scale, it's a nine.
Sorry but Mr Rees-Mogg no longer accepts decimalised measurements, convert your scale to glorious British imperial marks or be denounced as an unpatriotic Brexit saboteur
In that case, it's two gills, nine groats and a hogshead.. out of seventeen bovates.
...and it's Mr Esquires to you
