The Leeds United manager can't wait to see and hear the fans.
The former Swansea City defender has previously played against the Whites during his career, but the 38-year-old - who replaced Steve Evans this summer - has not witnessed the support of the fanbase as a Leeds affiliate as of yet.
That will all change tomorrow when Leeds take on Irish outfit Shelbourne in a Dublin-based pre-season friendly in which thousands of United fans are expected to be present.
It will give Monk an early insight into how well supported the club is, and the ex-Swansea manager admits he is relishing the sight and sound of the Leeds faithful in the Irish capital.
"Can't wait," he smiled and told LUTV. "I already know what a fantastic club it is and how passionate the fans are. I've already felt that in my few weeks at the club.
"I'm looking forward to it. I think that'll help galvanise ourselves and not to fear anything. Sometimes at a big club with a lot of followers it can add pressure, but I want to use that to our advantage."
United will stay around Dublin for a few extra days as they then turn their attentions toward a clash with Shamrock Rovers on Saturday.
Their first competitive outing comes in the Championship on August 7, with Leeds visiting Queens Park Rangers.
