first_img Coady captained Wolves to Premier League promotion last season – being crowned Championship champions Coady only made two senior appearances for Liverpool – but is a boyhood Red 2 Now back in the Premier League, the skipper is keen for Wolves to show what they are made of when they take on Pep Guardiola’s side.Speaking on Friday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Coady said: “This is why you get promoted, this is what you want to do, you want to match yourselves against the best teams in the land and I think that’s what Manchester City are at the minute, they’re a fantastic team.“We’ve had a tough start, I think we’ve played some good stuff, but we’re confident going into the weekend. It’s a real tough game for us, but we have confidence in our own ability.“We knew how tough it was going to be from the day we got promoted last year. We were excited by it, but we knew the challenge ahead. We had a tough start against Everton and Leicester, but I do think we’ve played some good stuff and we’ve shown we can play at this level.“It’s just about keeping confident and we are confident.”Asked if he is looking to give Liverpool a boost in their title pursuit, Coady said: “Yeah, that would be nice! Conor Coady has told talkSPORT he is hoping to do boyhood club Liverpool a favour when Wolves take on Manchester City on Saturday.The Premier League newcomers welcome the defending champions to the Molineux on Saturday lunchtime, where they will face their toughest test yet since their return to the top flight.Wolves have endured a tough start back with the big boys. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have showed glimpses of the play which saw them promoted as Championship winners last term, but began the season by drawing 2-2 with Everton on the opening day before a 2-0 defeat to Leicester City.It will take some performance to record their first three points of the season against the champions, but there is an added carrot for Wolves captain Coady as former club Liverpool get set to battle City for the title.The 25-year-old centre-back came through the ranks at Anfield, leaving the Merseyside outfit to join Wolves in a £2million deal in 2015, and has gone from strength to strength since joining Wanderers. 2 “But I think we’ve got to concentrate on ourselves, it’s going to be tough enough. As long as we breathe, and we get on the ball and we play the way we do we should be ok.”Coady might be in for a sleepless night tonight, with his main task tomorrow being to keep Sergio Aguero at bay.The Argentine has started the season in brilliant form, scoring twice against Chelsea in the Community Shield before netting a hat-trick in his last outing against Huddersfield.On facing up against the City star, who is now in the top ten of the Premier League’s highest goalscorers, Coady added: “He’s a sensational footballer isn’t he, he’s absolutely fantastic.“He’s been the best player in the Premier League for a number of years now, so we’ve got to be on our mettle as much as possible against him.”Listen back to Conor Coady on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast IN FULL above!last_img read more

first_imgTHE growing resentment over septic tank charges has descended into outright political warfare – with claim and counter-claim over the costs of implementing EU laws…and the possible bill for households costing thousands.While the Government has done a U-turn on the tax and plans to implement a €50 registration fee instead, people are beginning to realise that many of them may have to find up to €5,000 to upgrade their systems.And last night Donegal Senator Brian O Domhnaill launched a scathing attack on the Government parties, accusing them of being ‘cowards’ for refusing an Oireachtas debate. The Fianna Fáil Seanad Spokesperson on Agriculture described as ‘cowardly’ the refusal by Fine Gael and Labour to facilitate a debate on septic tank charges in the Seanad.Senator Ó Domhnaill commented: “Fianna Fáil put forward an amendment to the Order of Business in the Seanad, calling on Seanad Éireann to oppose upcoming septic tank charges.  In what can only be seen as a cowardly move, Fine Gael and Labour Senators refused to even debate the motion and blocked it out-right before a discussion could take place.“In my view this amounts to a blatant refusal by the Government Senators to even acknowledge what is a very real issue for more than 400,000 households nationwide.“They cannot continue to ignore the fact that there is ongoing opposition to this Government’s moves to hit households directly with the cost of registering their septic tanks as well as the full cost of upgrading them.” And it is the latter point which could yet come back to haunt this government, said the Gortahork man.He added: “Following the initial inspection and registration charge, many households are facing bills of thousands of euro to upgrade their tanks. The bottom line is they simply cannot afford it. In addition to this, the Environment Minister Phil Hogan has created total confusion over the recurring nature of the registration charge.“Fianna Fáil believe all of this warrants a full and open debate by all sides of the House, but clearly Fine Gael and Labour do not agree. They are simply content to penalise rural communities with what is fundamentally an unfair charge and hope that they can avoid being held to account for doing so.”* What do you think?
