The City players and staff were in high spirits ahead of Thursday's Europa League tie against Dynamo Kyiv.
First things first, though - no, it's not a trailer for Reservoir Dogs - it's Vinny Kompany, Simon Heggie (Head of Media Relations) doing the daily 100m walking race with Roberto Mancini and Christian Lattanzio (Technical co-ordinator) lagging behind. "Come on, Christian," says the gaffer. "We can take them on the final bend."
Elsewhere, James Milner impresses Brian Kidd with his favourite warm-up routine. Sings James: "Oh the grand old Duke of York, he had ten thousand men..."
"He marched them up to the top of the hill," continues Mario Balotelli, under the watchful eye of head physio Lee Nobes. "Er, how does the rest go Nobesy?"
Balo, tired from his red carpet exertions hitched a lift to the canteen via Chappy's Rickshaw-style piggy back service. "Where's your other hand Chapster?" asks Mario."Between two pillows, Mario..."
"Those aren't pillows!! Arrgghhhh!" If you don't know what we're on about, check out Planes, Trains and Automobiles on DVD!
Sharon Latham's camera gets everywhere and nobody can escape her all-seeing lens - here is the first picture of Atillio 'The Power' Lombardo warming up for the imminent the World Darts Championships. Cool as a cucumber, he's just thrown his second nine-dart finish of the morning. The crowd watching through the windown to his left, as you can see, have gone wild.
Finally, one of the players' cars gets a spruce up from the mobile valet team. A real rags-to-riches picture if ever there was!
