The Special One is back


If you were in Special One withdrawal after the end of I'm on Setanta Sports, there is good news. The new variation of IOSS has arrived. Special 1 TV made its debut today on Setanta and it is just as funny as the original IOSS.


Some of the favorites:

  • "Have you tried Newcastle? I'm not that desperate."

  • "You've imploded all over yourself."

  • "Boys got da Bends."

  • "Aye, well goats don't get altitude sickness."

  • "Awright Barackhhh."

What did you think of the first episode? What was your favorite line? Share your thoughts on the debut of Special1 TV in the comments section.

    Best show ever. I hope they do an angle with Sven when the US/Mexico game gets here.

  2. Freddy says:

    Great Episode! Beckham’s “statue” was the best part!

  4. BigWave says:

    Brilliant, that is!:-D

  5. Jamie Z. says:

    I love how they changed “Robbie’s” name in order to protect his identity!

  6. SayervilleFC says:

    Even Rooney’s got Obamamania.

  7. Dannyc58 says:

    Always great, but was hoping with Barack they would have mentioned my Hammers! Maybe next time!

  8. Brit says:

    And once again…all is right with the world…

  9. John says:

    i wish they made this 15 minutes long…kind of like robot chicken.

  10. Jeff says:

    Dat’s Maccckkkkkccchhhkivellian, dat’s is!

    But, did anyone else think that was the worst Obama impersonation ever?

  11. Black Hornet says:

    I love the Obama angle. The do his voice better than SNL!!

  12. Phil says:

    Sven has a man-crush on Beckham. Pure Gold !!!!!

    Pavel Pardo injured his left leg in Club America’s 1-0 loss to Morelia on Saturday night.

    Pardo limped off in the 59th minute of the match

    “Goats don’t get altitude sickness.”

  15. Mike Caramba says:

    I’m going to be honest, I don’t get the obsession here. If there aren’t at least 3 fart jokes, it’s lost on me. Sorry, guys.

  16. RS says:


    McBride heading back to Fulham? Do you have any solid news on this?

  17. Frimp says:

    “Here’s you…and here’s the world…and you’re like BAAAHAHAHAH”


  18. Jacob A. says:

    “It’ll be great once it’s finished” and Sven’s crush on Beckham got me.

    Man, if they don’t do something about Sven around the 11th, I’ll be crushed. Could anyone understand what he was muttering at the beginning? Surely it had to be about losing to Sweden or something.

  19. Jamie Z. says:

    Jacob, Sven was griping about the switch from IOSS to SPECIAL1TV being “a cheap marketing ploy.” Nothing about Sweden.

    But I’m also looking forward to Sven catching some flack if Mexico lose on the 11th. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t count on it, but if the writers are in tune with their online viewing demographic, there’s a chance. Send e-mails if we win!

  20. guiilermo says:

    Sven’s hot and bothered reaction to David on the phone is hilarious.

  21. SonicDeathMonkey says:

    Nobody is mad at you stoked. But everybody now is aware that you are in fact, an idiot.

  22. martha in miami says:

    Guess whom I thought this thread/post was about?!!! HAHAHA!…The “Special One”…ummmmmmm could it be…me, just kidding….kepp up the great on the edge of your stadium seat reporting Ives, as only you can do!…and no I am not buttering you up, LOL!

  23. Xander Crews says:

    Can someone explain to me how this is considered funny? I’m being serious… I didn’t see or hear anything in this that made me chuckle, let alone laugh.

  24. Ken U says:

    “This is fantastic cause I am the Special One and I am on TV”

  25. ThaDeuce says:

    ah, nothing has change, the same crappy callers.

    “Shut up Sven”
