Ryan Bertrand Russell: Left back, philosopher, mathematician, charming lad

Christopher Lee

Aston Villa got more than they bargained for when they signed Ryan Bertrand on loan.

Most every tweet and story I've seen about new Aston Villa loanee Ryan Bertrand just uses the Chelsea defender's last name. "Bertrand signs for Villa." "Bertrand looks to be useful." "Bertrand and the Birthday Surprise." &c.

Well, thanks to my only passing knowledge of the rest of the universe - and not living in England where the name is more common - when I hear the name Bertrand, my mind inevitably sails to Bertrand Russell. Russell was, as you likely know, an English a Welsh philosopher and mathematician. And that got me thinking: what would we hear from Ryan Bertrand Russell, the philosophizing sportsman who coincidentally also plays a fine left back? Let's see below.
