Monday Night Football Is Finally Returning To Sky Sports Next Week
Monday Night Football will make a long-awaited move to Sky Sports next week with a brand new spin on the show.
Everyone's favourite punditry duo Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher join David Jones for a special show titled Monday Night Football Retro.
The show will consist of the former England internationals analysing two classic Premier League games in a special two hour programme beginning at 7pm.
:microphone2:️ "Here he is again, it's Viduka, it's four!" @GNev2 and @Carra23 will delve back into the Premier League archives for a @SkySportsMNF with a retro twist.

The games in question will be Leeds United's memorable 4-3 win over Liverpool back in November 2000 - a game Carragher featured in.
Liverpool were winning 2-0 until four-goals from Premier League cult hero Mark Viduka inspired a remarkable comeback.
Naturally, the other game will feature a Manchester United game that Neville featured in.
Unlike Carragher, the former United full-back featured in a game which saw his side run rampant in a 6-1 victory over Arsenal in 2001.
A first half hat-trick from Dwight Yorke helped condemn Arsene Wenger to one of his most humiliating losses as Gunners manager and Sir Alex Ferguson to a seventh Premier League title in nine years.

It's not the first time that the duo have been back on our screens since the coronavirus pandemic brought the footballing world to a halt.
They appeared on The Debate on Thursday evening and discussed how the season could end following the coronavirus outbreak.
All football in England is currently suspended until April 30 at the earliest and the duo had their say on the matter.
Carragher suggested that Liverpool being awarded the title is the 'easy bit' due to their 25 point lead at the top.
Neville, with a smirk on his face also agreed but stated: "He's been a little bit touchy on this one over the last few days on our messages.
"I say give Liverpool the league and I keep sending a little asterisk sign so you just have that little note next to it: "Liverpool won the league BUT..."
"But it would be an absolute doomsday scenario for football. At the end of the day football doesn't matter, but it would have to be a doomsday scenario not to finish the fixtures for this existing season because I don't see how you could shift on with next season without finishing those fixtures."
Will you be tuning in to Monday Night Football next week?
