Modern football can be baffling. What with half-and-half scarves, VARs and player signings announced via online piano recitals, you could be forgiven for wanting to throw it all in for the simpler pleasures of quantum mechanics, or cricket. But don't despair just yet: help is at hand.

In Goalless Draws, David Squires introduces an unmissable highlights reel of his finest Guardian football cartoons from 2014 to the 2018 Russia World Cup. From the ever-dizzying managerial roundabout to the absurd world of the transfer window, and from the true meaning of 'football heritage' to the annual tradition of poppygate, the result is a riotous reminder both of everything that's wrong with the modern game, and everything that keeps us coming back for more.
