You do realise you are as bad as those Daly Mail mentalists who complain about everything that's not Songs Of Praise. As is oft repeated the other two bloggers, neither of which I found funny, are found elsewhere. It's not as if Martin took them out back to be shot. Special 1 TV is good, there's not been much football comedy on TV since Fantasy Football. I am starting the campaign to get rid of Rooney and Eriksson, get in Holloway and someone else. There's so much scope with a Holloway more than with the job-whore Sven (Shut up Sven!).

I'm shocked that so many football fans (presumably) don't find this funny or at least amusing - everyone I've ever pointed at it over the last 2 years has liked it - but each to their own. I can only think that those comments all posted anonymously by the Cuckoo... Tue 02 Nov 2010 07:02:28 GMT+1 Dave the hedgehog- Doitchampions http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/special1/2010/10/we_didnt_see_that_coming.html?page=96#comment112 Comment 112 (rozsmith) Makes very valid points & I would like to suggest that those who wish to see the shows entire archive from it's beginnings as "I'm on setanta sports" up until it's name change to Special1 TV & then onto the promised land of mainstream TV with the BBC.You can access this back catalogue of shows by visiting the website for the Special1 TV production company (Blue elf - caboom) athttp://www.caboom.iewhere you can find a link to the archive on youtube.If some of the naysayers take some time to watch the show from the 1at episode ever (& particularly the 1st season of "I'm on setanta sports" then i feel that many attitudes will be changed as many of the shows IN JOKES originated from those early days.For example... Wenger is "voyeur" because of the controversy over his apparent spying on Chelsea training sessions when Jose was Chelsea manager. & Dave from Newcastle is one of the 1st(spoof) persons to phone in with his obsession about Shola Ameobi & he has been showing up from time to time ever since. Dave is the only non celeb or footy based personality to ever phone Jose on the show.TAKE ALOOK & YOU MAY BE SURPRISED...If however you still don't like it then please leave it to us fans & long term devotees.FOOTNOTE: Many comments have mentioned the Quotes of the week & although i have never seen this section, I would ask that the BBC at least re- consider bringing it back as it seems from the many many comments here that it was extremely well thought of & supported. & the majority have made the point in a decent manner & not in the immature manner that most of the other complainers have tended to use.

I do sometimes think though that some of the jokes may be lost on some people who didn't see the old shows. They just won't appreciate how funny the statement 'Ameobi Like' is, because to them it has no context, or referring to Wenger as Voyeur. How can a joke be funny if you don't know what it is. I on the other hand think its - fantastic. Be Champions.

Most people who enjoy it wont bother posting anything because they like it as it is, they dont want anything changed so why post? Negativity will always have the stronger voice on anything like this.Quite simply, if this isnt your cup of tea, you dont have to watch it. There are plenty of other show/videos for your amusement. Let us enjoy it in peace!

Just don't bother.Either enjoy the show, or appreciate that many others do and move on..

It remains to be seen if it can be consistently funny. But then the items it 'replaced' had weak weeks. I can think of other items at the BBC that might have been cut other than RoW etc. But S1TV is a laugh and The takes on recent events are spot on.

In the slightest.Not only that but as a media junkie I can remember when Loaded magazine did a similar (but very low budget) video slot on the internet called `Football Bumbaclart` must have been about seven, eight, ten years ago now. They used teddy bears and soft toys with exactly the same format!! Hmmmm...is this the same people? There was one when Patrick Viera was getting sent off all the time and believed he was Bruce Lee reincarnated I can remember...it was also very rude/outrageous, but at least it was funny!

Sat 30 Oct 2010 05:52:42 GMT+1 northernsuperspur http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/special1/2010/10/we_didnt_see_that_coming.html?page=78#comment91 For anyone that still doesnt understand, let me make the complaint quite clear. As a blog, this just doesnt work. The television sketch works perfectly well, and I personally find it funny. What I and I suspect most others object to is the attempt to turn it into a humorous blog, with no actual humour involved.If you want to give us a link to the programme on the sports website, then fine, but don't pretend its some sort of blog that suggests either insight or entertainment. The fact that the blog has been reduced little more than a link after only a couple of entries tends to suggest that someone at the BBC is actually taking notice of the feedback, at any rate. Sat 30 Oct 2010 05:52:16 GMT+1 what a shot http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/special1/2010/10/we_didnt_see_that_coming.html?page=77#comment90 Firstly i have to say that i love the show and thought this weeks episode was great again. I think this type of blog needs to be given time and then the majority of people will start liking it. People need to give it a chance, if you definitely don't like it then don't comment on it. It's only once a fortnight anyway.I was never a fan of the Robbo Robson blog, it was dull at best. This is far better than that. However, i think the majority of users on this website would love to see 'Quotes of the Week' back, it was always an amusing read, especially when Wenger or Rafa were in full flow. Although to be fair, it virtually would have been a blog about Ian Holloway had you done it this year!

Sat 30 Oct 2010 01:36:49 GMT+1 Geordie2004 http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/special1/2010/10/we_didnt_see_that_coming.html?page=75#comment88 Since a bunch of people now seem to be throwing mud in the direction of 'haters', which I guess includes myself, I'd just like to point out that, as previously stated by several others including myself, we like the videos, we just find the usage of a 'blog' post (when it clearly isn't one) to promote it to be a bit, well, stupid, irritating and just plain not funny.Also, I echo the sentiments of post #47 which stated that the kind of moderation applied earlier to this 'blog' (my original intention on coming back to this discussion was to focus on pointing out how wrong that is after my first post here was initially deleted, though I see it has now been restored, along with many others) and last week's edition is just not appropiate for a publicly funded organisation like the BBC. To try and basically eliminate your negative feedback in such a way under the pretence of censorship is nothing short of pathetic, morally wrong and quite possibly illegal. For shame.

I really loved Special 1 TV on Setanta, and was THRILLED to see that BBC brought it back for the world cup! I did really like Robbo Robson's blog, and was sad to see it go, but his twitter feed is just as funny as his blog was, so we're not missing too much. Kudos to the BBC for trying something new this season. It is never a good thing when your regular site (for me it is BBC Sport Football) becomes incredibly predictable.

Ok, it doesnt quite hit the mark every week, but for the majority of the time its funny and very entertaining. The phone in section is especially funny, digging at Sven (pimping himself), Wenger (voyeur)/Fergie & Benitez wind ups are/were funny, roy keane - fair play to...., big mick, didier drogba and roman all calling in too. Thats without the afore mentioned Dave 'shola ameobi like' from Newcastle and becks/tom cruise.So to all you haters..... SHUT UP NUMPTIES.

I'd told loads of people about earlier in the year and then it disappeared. OK with Robbo packing his bags even though he had occasional gems in his ramblings.Not sure that this is the best thing to replace what's gone though. I will bear with it to see if it improves but surely it wouldn't be a big stretch to bring back the Quotes. Any chance of this happening?

However, I don't think it needs a comments section as it's hardly a blog and doesn't encourage any sort of debate.As for the cancelled blogs... I still read Robbo regularly as I always enjoy them, but I do understand why it was pulled. Simple reason is, a select few of his fans took it over to chat about 'whatever', and the topic of the blog was lost. It simply couldn't continue. They blame the BBC for taking him away but ultimately it was their own fault for ruining any/all discussion/debate for everyone else.Chris Charles however is a different matter, it should never have been stopped and was a definate highlight of the BBC website every week.

I have been away on leave for a few weeks, and I don't regularly check the bbc website when I'm not in work, so I seem to be behind the times, but surely I must be mis-reading this blog? This tripe has replaced the Robbo Robson blog? Is this some kind of joke? The irony is it's funnier than the blog itself. I haven't seen the tv show, but based on this article (and I read the older "cows staying in the field" blog aswell) I won't be rushing to watch it. Bring Robbo back. At least that was a football discussion, and he always made me laugh. This is jsut shocking.

I will probably watch it in future. I agree that this is not the place to discuss 'Robbo' etc (if the Sports Editor ever does another blog I guess he'll get it there), but I don't understand why only positive feedback is allowed. The moderation has been exceptionally Stalinist, and I doubt this comment will make it either.I think this sort of moderation is unacceptable in a publicly-funded organisation.

I am on the side of those who do not find it funny but I do like the fact that the person responsible has had the guts to post defending the decision to have this on the BBC website (Post 40). Well done Martin. if only some of the other bloggers on the BBC would answer criticisms in the same way (no name's mentioned of course but the Chief Sports Writer springs to mind). I personally won't be reading the blog again or watching the TV show but it seems that it does appeal to some of the people who post on here. And as Martin rightly says "you can never please all the people......"

And in some cases the same person quotes the same things again and again. For instance check out Dave the hedgehog- Doitchampions's post #9 and #36.

It got a great response and we wanted to continue for the new season. Having spoken to our colleagues at BBC Sport, who liked the show too, it seemed that it would make sense to make a home for it in their website, closer to football fans and we hoped new fans of Special1 TV. We will be putting out a show every two weeks throughout the season with it being exclusively available online on the Friday and then showing it on the channel on the Saturday. So you see it here first. As we are only doing it every two weeks we think that a blog post in the intervening weeks is a good idea and hope that we may get some exclusive audio from the Special 1 too. It is not a traditional blog, we are just trying something new. The show has a really strong online following and the producers pour over the comments, tweets and messages and this helps make the show what it is so please keep them coming. However the show is never going to be something that it is not and there are after all some great blogs on the site for general football debate.Comedy is a tricky business and you can never please all the people all the time nor should you try. All we hope is that you can take the show for what it is and that hopefully it will make you laugh.
