Joleon and Micah: The Dynamic Duo return...

Lescott and Richards

Lescott and Richards

After a two-day break, the boys are back with the best video diary yet as Micah attempts to solve the mystery of his missing camera.

Player video diaries can be dull affairs with the chosen subject often putting a static camera on a tripod before uttering a few thoughts and then closing with “Well, that’s it, off to bed now. See you tomorrow.”

At least that’s how player diaries used to be…

Over the past week, two of the City squad's closest friends have been filming their own daily diaries exclusively for mcfc.co.uk - and they have gone down a storm, not only with City fans, but in the football world in general.

Joleon video diary

As fans of other clubs enviously watch on, Micah Richards and Joleon Lescott are, in short, redefining a genre and video diaries will never be the same again – the bar has been set to new standards and for that, we’d just like to say ‘thanks’.

Not only have Joleon and Micah volunteered to let us all into their inner sanctum, they have filmed the diaries in a unique, completely natural style that has won widespread acclaim from the media and supporters around the world.

It’s never really been done before and to see the lads having banter with their team-mates in a style most people never get to see provides a fascinating insight into their lives.

Whether it’s Micah’s mischievous roaming into his team-mates’ bedrooms or Joleon’s dead-pan delivery, observations and sharp humour, both the Joleon Lescott Video Diary and Micah Richards Video Diary have been must-watch viewing for legions of people.

Micah’s infectious laugh alone has won him a whole new fan club and anyone could be the target of Joleon’s razor-sharp wit.

If you’ve not seen any of the diaries yet, you’re missing some genuine comedy gold.

How many other top Premier League footballers would provide access like this or allow fans into their world, whether it’s at breakfast, on the coach to training, in the dressing room or wherever?

So thanks guys, it’s really appreciated by the masses and keep up the great work. More importantly, keep them coming.

Now, on with the show with the latest entry from the dynamic duo…
