Meet Vincent Kompany, Metrolink’s latest substitution

Metrolink tram

“This is your captain speaking, Vincent Kompany…the next stop is Piccadilly!”

Residents of east Manchester are slowly getting used to the sound of various Manchester City players making their ‘next stop’ announcements on match days.

When City are playing at home, the regular recorded announcements are substituted for the likes of Joe Hart, James Milner and even Roberto Mancini himself!

We’d love to hear from you if you know of anywhere else in the world where regular announcements are subbed for cameo appearances on special occasions – tweet us or like us on facebook and we’ll repost!

Let’s hope there’s no United fans living in Droylsden…
