BLACKPOOL FINISH HOULLIER SPAT
Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier has drawn a line over his public spat with Blackpool. Houllier and Holloway were involved in several verbal exchanges after Villa tried to buy Blackpool skipper Charlie Adam during the January transfer window and had two bids rejected.
Holloway claimed he was unhappy Villa had made their interest in Adam public while Houllier insisted the West Midlands club did everything through the right channels. But Houllier is now more concerned at trying to win against the Seasiders, who he predicts will avoid relegation this season.
Gerard Houllier, when asked about his row with Holloway, said: "I don't want to be drawn into any kind of comment about that.
"Blackpool are the most attacking and offensive team I've seen and the manager is doing a good job there. He probably assessed his best chances of staying up and thought having a go with no regrets was best, which is good.
