It hardly seems a minute since beaming smiles and tears of joy filled the Etihad Stadium as Vincent Kompany lifted the Premier League trophy aloft.
But time has a way of marching on relentlessly and the defence of our title begins in a few short weeks.
That means only one thing… pre-season training and here at mcfc.co.uk (Sports Industry website of the Year lest you have forgotten) we will be following every boot print of the ‘Manchester City FC Summer Tour 2012 presented by Abu Dhabi Travellers Welcome’.
On Sunday the squad , minus a few familiar faces who will be resting after their exertions in Euro 2012, flies out to Austria and Citytv, our writing team and club snapper Sharon Latham will be right there with them to give you all the exclusive news and views from the camp.
There will be daily training ground reports in text, video and pictures; exclusive interviews with the players and management team, a blog and as much behind the scenes action - some of it with the incomparable Chappy - as we can pack into the two weeks.
As ever it will be unbeatable coverage of England’s top team by the best media crew and it will all be FREE of charge for you our fans.
Yaya Toure, a man with the happy knack of scoring vital goals and winning medals, will be talking to us on a daily basis in his exclusive ADTA Tour Diary and there will be all the pre-match and post-match action and reaction from the three friendly games against Al Hilal, Dynamo Dresden and Besiktas.
So stick with us for all the Blues news and views. You can follow the training camp on our official Facebook and Twitter accounts or more informally via our Head of Content Chris Bailey’s Twitter account @baileymcfc
