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.
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.
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.
And that was that - watch out for more of the players returning to Carrington in the next few days.
