    sage reacted to Chester40 in Most embarrassing moment.....   
    What's the most mortifying story/ thing that has ever happened to you? 
    As a teenager I had to go for an operation on my shoulder.  My mum knowing I was very shy said  "they may do a full medical check, but its all normal to them, so don't worry".
    A whole gaggle of nurses came in...about 10 student nurses with the Surgeon. 
    He says 'how you doing? .. much pain.?..ready for op?' etc. Then.. 'could you just pull your pants and trousers down'. Thinking its just normal protocol I do as I'm asked.
    So I'm now sat there...with my Mum and 10 nurses...everything out.
    Then the Surgeon says ...'so exactly where is the problem then?..' 
    I'm still sitting there shrivelled bits out feeling horrendously embarrassed...and I pointed to my shoulder.
    So he looks a bit confused. Asks again, and then says.... "oh.... bloody hell, sorry...wrong file"!
    The nurses were absolutely wetting themselves with laughter.
    He walks over abd says "let's have a look then"...all nonchalant.... then "oh you can pull up your trousers up now and put tbat away".!!!!
    After they had gone, I was sat with my Mum, quietly dying inside and we heard the ward staff giggling and one say "Really?? The poor lad".
    My Mum just looks at me and goes "oh stop stressing; think of the poor sod who is really having his bits operated on"...!!

    At the moment, like Wilson he is a highlights player. Does the odd great thing but his general play is really poor. Loses possession far too often and makes poor decisions. 
    They both have potential but playing both together is a nightmare.

    My impression is of an immature personality.
    He doesn't seem to have the mental strength to boss games by doing the things the opposition least want him to. There's nothing wrong with having a player who takes defenders on, as long as he knows what he's going to do next.
    He aims sly kicks when we need firm tackles and is too gobby with refs.
    There's a good player in there but only when he grows up and realises his responsibility to the team and recognises that working with his teammates is the key to his (and the team's) success.

    My grandparents' generation, and preceding, were all rural working class, farm labourers, lace makers, millers. Both my Gran and her sister 'married well', and in the post war years, aspired to affluence and respectability. I was privately educated and destined for Oxford and greater heights still. 
    Needless to say, I threw it all back in their faces, which is why I find myself discussing chip shops on a Derby County football forum.

    In the Tom Lawrence camp do you all have your own tent that looks good when you're putting it up but then falls down when you need to use it?
    And I'm assuming that when you're eating roasted marshmallows or whatever happens in camp that nobody shares? 
    Then you sing one good song together and forget what a terrible weekend it was?

    To be fair, I look better from behind anyway, so not a problem.

    I would agree playing 433 I don't expect to see the likes of Hinton again but Russell, Ward and Dawkins were effective and we have spent a lot of money failing to replace them.
    Again Tommy Smith, Tudgay and Bisgaard played that role pretty well albeit in different ways.

    It feels like our wingers/wide forwards have been our weak link for the last 3 seasons and seems to be continuing this season.
    Bennett and Josefzoon are sub quality only IMO and Wilson and Lawrence both lose possession constantly despite having obvious ability.
    Bearing in mind we have tried and discarded Blackman, Weimann and Ince for various reasons we seem to struggle to find players who take a good part in team play and retaining possession.

    So beautifully, stylishly and succinctly put. I’m in the @Alpha camp too. I just think TL will always put his head down, beat a man, then lose the ball against the back of an opposition player’s heel.
