The boys are back in town and the season effectively starts from here as the majority of the City squad reported tor pre-season training.
The beaches may be a distant memory but Gareth Barry looks like he's just stepped off one. The England midfielder was looking refreshed and happy following some quality time with his family which will no doubt have included trips to see Rio, Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2 and at Kung Fu Panda 2 the cinema.
Next up was Mario Balotelli - but sadly there was no sign of his dog Lucky. Mind you, with Wimblydon patrolling the premises at Carrington, it's probably just as well...
Physio Paul Webster escorted James Milner on to the premises, but clearly neither had called the other to make sure they weren't wearing matching T-shirts - d'oh! Looks like Milner stopped off for a Peter Kay 'big shop' on his way in, too.
No, it's no N-Dubz - just Joleon Lescott, Shauny Wright-Wright-Wright, Jerome Boateng (hidden behind JL) and legendary driver Faz making an entrance.
Vincent Kompany enjoys his breakfast along with Joe Hart and Adam Johnson as various stories about holidays and the forthcoming season are discussed. Harty looks unimpressed with AJ's habit of putting ketchup on his Alpen.
City's Player of the Year also had time to chat with Vladimir Weiss about his season-long loan at Rangers. Curiously, Vlad asked the chef for a bowl of porridge followed by tatties and neeps.
And that was that - watch out for more of the players returning to Carrington in the next few days.
