Seem to remember he was very highly thought of as a youngster, we can't lose with this one, decent cover with little outlay.

2-3 England caps as a teenager so yes, very highly regarded.

Not every signing has to be a £30m superstar. This provides us with good back up in a number of positions. Iíd rather see what happens with a player we now own than carry on developing players like Tuanzebe who wasnít very good anyway. Heís probably not going to play much more for us than he did Arsenal in all honesty though.

Just the kind of signing we needed to put pressure on our CBs for their position...or something.

If it's reserve Arsenal CBs we were after, I'd have much preferred Rob Holding.
Glad you're not in charge of our transfer strategy, Holding is utter Blues.
Welcome Calum.

Have you seen this guy, Chambers play? He's absolute shite and then some. Welcome Callum!

absolute shite is as ridiculous a comment as it gets :-)

The habit of writing signings off before they have even played a game in the shirt, is truly one of the most nauseating reads on fans forums.

A Carl Tiler for the YouTube generation.
Was at VP for his debut

And me. Didnít he score against Forest who we just signed him from. November 96.
Yeah - then he got injured very soon after I believe
I dont't know how you lot remember this stuff. I'd totally forgotten all about him.

Experienced, versatile player who will offer competition and squad depth, on a free transfer. Smart signing.

I look at the likes of Wet Spam having Dawson and Leicester with Evans and think thereís a lot to be said for an experienced centre half now and again. If and when he gets a game Iím not expecting him to run box-to-box thatís what weíve got Jacob for - I want him to know his role inside out and support his fellow centre half and his right back before giving the ball to those that can play. And at 27 when theyíre 30+ heís got loads to give us. Especially with the odd appearance as a DM are a short term option.
And if he wants to wander up for corners to score occasionally even better. I donít see much downside with this to be honest.

You read my mind with Dawson and Evans ditto Wes Morgan when Leicester won the Title. I see him as very good defensive cover for not a lot of risk. It's shrewd business by Villa.  Gerrard is squad building for next season and reliable back up is invaluable if you have a run of injuries which we usually do. It's also refreshing how they go about their business. No hype no fuss they just get it done. I'm expecting a few more to come and go before they're done.

A very smart move. Free transfer and cover for both the cb's and Matty. Two for the price of none. Good signing.

He can play as a right back too, so covers the defence very well,

Low fee, good age and experienced too - seems a no brainer.

If he gets in the team, plays well and doesnít sustain his place then his value will only increase, so may turn a profit should we sell him in a year or two too.

Welcome - hopefully you will enjoy sitting on the bench and not playing very often (you will probably only play in the League or FA Cup games, although, that will only be for 2 or 3 games per season)

Best of luck, hope that you love playing for the best club in the world
