Sky Sports are doing their bit for Leeds United fans who are starved of football.
Leeds were devoted six hours of football on Sunday afternoon, with midday-6pm cordoned off to show highlights of every televised game in the 19/20 season so far.
That was pretty epic.
But the show’s not over. Phil Neville and Jamie Carragher are giving the classic Leeds v Liverpool game the full Monday Night Football treatment tonight from 8pm-9pm.
If you haven’t seen the 4-3 classic from 2000 then it’s a must-watch. If you’ve seen it multiple times before, this will give you a new insight into the Mark Viduka masterclass from two of the best pundits in the game.

In the game, Liverpool were looking like they were cruising to a sixth consecutive win after early goals from Sami Hyypia and Christian Ziege.
They hadn’t counted for Viduka, though, who joined Leeds for a fee of around £8m in the summer of 2000 from Celtic.
He pulled Leeds level just after half-time and after Liverpool restored their lead, destroyed them with two goals in two minutes in the closing stages of the game.
We can’t wait. And remember, if you’ve paused your Sky Sports subscription you can still watch the channels.
If you haven’t done that yet you can pause online by clicking here and pay no more money until the season kicks off again, while still enjoying tonight’s Monday Night Football.
We’ve had beef with Sky Sports recently, like so many other Leed fans, but fair play to them at the moment for not charging and for the awesome Leeds content.
Keep it coming, lads.
