I suppose it is anti-Semitic to point out that despite all of the things mentioned in the cartoon, Israel is increasingly cosying up to Saudi Arabia.

Should the things mentioned in the cartoon change the way we look upon Israel, or only the way we look upon Newcastle United Football Club?

Unpopular opinion alert.

Switched off from these, made the mistake of clicking the link for the latest one. '...forget that Christian Pulisic even existed'. Really? The most talented American kid of the past 20 years, possibly of all time, who signed for Chelsea. Closed tab at that point. Who does he think his audience is, exactly?

Maybe Squires forgot he existed whilst trying to balance the political direction of the newspaper with football whilst dealing with the inconvenient truth that the wealth that built the company that pays him was largely generated from the backs of cotton pickers. I'm sure some of the frames are comedic in isolation, but after he burst onto the scene with a very authentic, purely football-driven approach (which was pretty much universally heralded), it quickly seemed to become yet another propaganda vehicle for the newspaper's larger agenda with football being the setting, rather than the subject.

I don't think it's an unpopular opinion, it's a fact. David Squires has forgot to be funny. It happened a long time ago.

@Ameritoon , tbh I never even thought of it that way, though now you point it out, it does seem like an angry American has written it :lol:. I had just found it hard to fathom that most people who follow the Premier League would forget about him, then @bowlingcrofty turns up and disproves my entire rant-driven point :lol:

I think I said this last time, but David Squires has always been political like. Just off the top of my head, the Dead Flag Blues and Poppygate ones came right at the start of his time at the Guardian. I've no idea why he's viewed as having become more political, but it could be because he's (imo) been a bit more inconsistent with how funny his comics are because he nearly always leans on the same sort of jokes and cultural references every time.
