Colin Calderwood type of signing.  Should give decent cover in a couple of positions.

A couple of mentions of Calderwood, but he was 34 when he signed for Villa. Tiler otoh was 25.

More to do with him being a versatile back up rather than his age.  Recall John Gregory being very complimentary about Calderwood during his time at the club.

He looked like man that enjoyed a break in Majorca, did Colin, in the days before tanning salons.

The only thing of significance  that I remember is when he scored right in front of me at Emirates to equalise for Arsenal and we went on to lose the game 3-2 against 10 men.  Another Carlos Cuellar.

Over 150 Premier appearances plus European, only 27 yrs old and versatile…good addition to the squad I reckon. Welcome to Villa!
And played for England at every age level.  Obviously lost his way a bit, but a fesh start is probably what he needs.
Arsenal have not improved many defenders over the past decade

We'd not improved many players at all in that time prior to the last few years, irrespective of position. We're a different animal now.

Why is he another Carlos Cuellar?

He adds genuine competition as 4th choice centre half. Remember the days of that bearded Spanish fella that was truly awful a few years back? We are light years from that now.

Was that his name.. I just remember him being less than whelming at Southampton one night and wondering which scout had thought, yeah, let's have him.

Looks to be having a good career in Greece. Fair play to him.

He has had a lot of experience at Arsenal and can play in more than one position in the back four. A sensible
if not spectacular signing.

Can we nickname him "Marilin"?

well he has on occasion played in midfield so he obviously has some ball skills
Can you imagine Mings Konsa or even worse Hause playing in midfield !!

He might be more composed playing out from the back which I think is what Gerrard wants to do
