‘Genius … Squires’ creativity shines through in this collection – there’s simply no one better at what he does.’ – Best Football Books of 2019, FourFourTwo
Half-and-half scarves? VARs? England winning penalty shoot-outs?
Modern football can be baffling. But if you’re contemplating throwing it all in for the simpler pleasures of quantum mechanics, don’t despair just yet: help is at hand.
In Goalless Draws, David Squires unpicks the modern game with an unmissable selection of his Guardian football cartoons from 2014 to the 2018 World Cup. From the ever-dizzying managerial roundabout to the absurdities of the transfer window, and from the annual tradition of poppygate to the ‘stable genius’ of José Mourinho, the result is a riotous reminder of all the pitfalls of the modern game, as well as everything that keeps us coming back for more.
King of the football comic strip.
David is unparalleled in his ability to highlight how ridiculous modern football can often be with his unique brand of caustic satire.
