Capello talks exclusively to S1TV

Post categories:

The Special 1 | 11:34 UK time, Friday, 19 November 2010

As pressure grows around Mr Capello's disastrous performance against France on Wednesday, S1TV talks exclusively to the man of the moment for his thoughts on what went wrong. And Sven talks to undisclosed sources at a variety of Premier League clubs about the pressure those teams are under as the season moves forward. Do it!

    It's not funny. It's potentially a great idea that's been messed up by people who think they're much funnier than they actually are. Get some proper comedians working on it- even Alistair MacGowan would do- and it will be better.

    God not yet another "bring back Robbo" sad act already.
    Great stuff though Mario, Damo & the Tricky man.
    will comment further later when i have had time to study this excellent episode in detail.
    Don't let the Robbo freaks get you down, they will get fed up & go eventually because the special one conquers all.

    Another top quality episode.

    Just how is Mancini expected to get CL football when he only gets £100m to spend each transfer window?
    It's about time the owners of City gave him a real budget, or he'll be stuck in 5th again come May ;)

    Comedy's such a subjective thing - I personally think The Special 1 is a bit hit and miss, but no more or less so than Robbo (I'm from the North-East don't you know?!) Robson.

    I've held back from posting for a few weeks now but have to say that some people need to see this for what it is.

    It's tongue in cheek humour poking fun at English football.

    Maybe some people shouldn't take life so seriously and just laugh at the funny side.

    Very entertaining and a shame it's only every two weeks.

    Agree with 26, it's not 'not getting it', I completely get it but just don't find it funny! Post 16, it really is nothing close to Spitting Image, you're making the defence worse by comparing the two - the comedy here really is sub-standard comparitively. Yes, puppet satire, but nowhere near as good.

    Also, why has this become a debate of special1 vs Robbo? They're both unimaginative and poor in my opinion (though Review of the week shouldn't have been dropped if it was a straight swap for this).

    But anyway, isn't that the point with comedy - some people like some stuff and some people like other stuff? Although I'm not a fan of this, there are far too many people that log on to comment negatively about it - if you don't like it, don't watch it! I won't be in future.

    Hmm..where to start eh? I guess by saying that above all the girl I?m looking for has to have a good sense of humour and like to laugh and smile. I?m told I?m quite witty and I suppose I?m quite an intelligent guy who likes to keep up on the topical events.

    I?m into sport, both watching and playing. I played hockey for over 10 years but stopped a few years ago because I got lazy at University! I want to get back playing soon. I also play tennis in the summer and go to the gym quite regularly. I?m into so much different music! My iTunes ranges from RnB through to rock, metal and even classical. It definitely depends what mood I?m in!

    I?m doing Admin work at the moment but I have an Accounting degree so would really love to get involved in that side of things. Hopefully soon! The people at work are great though and we have a laugh! At weekends I like to unwind by going out for a few drinks, usually to a bar, pub or club. I love going to London!

    I?d love to travel more in the future with Australia, New Zealand and China definitely in my plans! Hopefully you?d like to travel as well.

    Well that?s me atm. Can?t think of anything else to bore you with :D. If you like what you see/read then get in touch!

    But can we get over all this weekly commenting that is just becoming overly boring.
    Comment 30 - as a non fan you put your case across very well & it was constructive too (if only a few more people had your level of intellect & understanding).
    I don't agree with the Noels house party comment though !

    Special 1 TV is a caricature show, not a show of impressions. It's been running in various guises for about three years, and the characters have evolved somewhat. I think you get more out of it as a long-time viewer. Why not check out the doitchampions channel on YouTube, where every instalment has been collected. I don't think I'd get it either on the strength of one ep.

    I didn't find Robbo funny so I didn't read it - not difficult

    S1 TV is brilliant - congrats to BBC for bringing it back.

    BTW there are loads of back episodes on you-tube so you detractors can annoy yourselves for hours!!!

    The Boy Rooney is no way smart enough to have understood the in joke about Audley. Funny though. I think even Colleen would have knocked him out in 3.

    I don't understand why Sven didn't just give them all scarves or paper with facts written on to disguise them.
