The fans were out in force to get a rare peek at what goes in in training when Roberto Mancini and the City squad decamped to the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday. Gravity-defying enthusiasm was the order of the day early doors.
The Joe Hart Fan Club (Etihad Stadium branch) was out in force.
The face painters were busy, and the stars from the club crest were a nice touch.
Once the lads emerged from the tunnel it all got a bit emotional in the stands...
Sadly the real Sergio Aguero was ill and could not make it - unless he got the gig as Moonchester for the day?
Nigel's legions of fans were thrilled when he and the lads performed an impromptu meet & greet after training was over.
You can always put your shirt on Mario being the centre of attention!
