Bristol City keeper James not surprised Houllier struggling at Villa

Bristol City goalkeeper David James isn't surprised by Gerard Houllier's problems at Aston Villa.

James doesn't have good memories of the former Liverpool gaffer.

"He was not a popular manager, despite his trophies," said James.

"I remember being at Aston Villa and some of my old Liverpool team-mates were complaining about him.

"I said 'But you're third in the league, what's there to moan about?' They just didn't like the way he did things."
