Leeds United fans who were getting their football fix vicariously on Tuesday night will have heard something bizarre in the game between Man City and Wolves.
Pep Guardiola’s side made it an incredible 21 wins in a row with a 4-1 win over Wolves and despite an equaliser from Conor Coady in the 61st minute, the result was never really in doubt.
Perhaps that’s why the BT Sport sound man decided to pay a tribute to the other entertainers in the Premier League. [BT Sport, Tuesday, 8pm]
Late in the first half of the game Marching on Together came booming out of the fake crowd noises.
It was picked up by a number of Leeds fans and others.
Why on earth did they just play Marching On Together as the crowd noise in this game? 😂😂😂

Let us entertain you
Leeds have been talked about in the same breath as Man City this season, with pundits praising the thrilling, attacking football we’ve played.
Man City have dominated the Premier League but couldn’t get a win against Leeds when the two sides met earlier in the season.
The 1-1 draw was a brilliant game between Guardiola and Bielsa, with Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville saying “I’ve watched four games live of Leeds United. The game against Manchester City was one of the best 45 minutes of football that I’ve seen in the Premier League in the past 10 years working at Sky.”
We meet again on April 10 and we’d be delighted with another draw, although the signs look ominous.
If Man City carry on their amazing winning run, the game with Leeds would see them looking for their 28th win in a row in all competitions.
That’s a run that we’d love to have a crack at and Leeds will likely have guaranteed their Premier League status long before Guardiola’s men travel to Elland Road.
With 12 games left we’re on 35 points, probably one win from safety.
That will mean we can play without pressure and look to entertain Gary Neville again.
