Pleased to confirm that as reported the 'Leg End' had his lengthy operation at around 11.30 this morning. He was back on the ward early afternoon after having a rod inserted into the bones to align then. By bearing weight on the join this process will hopefully aid his recovery speed.
There is some bad news however and that is that his recovery may have been set back by a few weeks, unfortunately the first face he saw when he came round was that of the other Albion legend! That can't be be a pleasant sight when you're feeling the affects of anesthetic!
According to the big man Mose was in good spirits and wanted to thank everyone for their messages of support and best wishes that he had read on the forum and elsewhere.
Apparently Mike asked the doctor if after recovery whether he would be able to score 20 plus goals a season. The doctor said there should be no reason why not, at which Mike replied good because I couldn't do that before the injury!
I made the last bit up, sorry, couldn't resist!
All the best Mose and let us know if you need a lift to the ground on Saturday.
I saw my mate the other day, he said to me he'd seen the white Pele, so I asked who is he.....?
......he goes by the name of Mike Moseley, Mike Moseley, Mike Moseley, he goes by the name of Mike Moseley!
All the best from me Mike and a speedy recovery. Saturday was definately a day to forget and your injury was the worst thing that happened on a bad day all round. I'd have happily settled for us getting beat 6 nil and you still having your leg in one piece! Hope you mum and dad are ok as they turn up week in week out with their support and I hope you and they will continue to do so even after you hang up your boots round about year 2025 I hope!!
Stick in there mate and great to see Adam Foy encouraging you. What price having both him and you in the same team again 110 percenters great lads the both you!!
A Wittoner from his head to his toes!! (sadly via a broken leg) All the best Mike.
I have been retired for 8 years now and I can confirm two things; You cannot work out how you found time to go to work and it is wonderful to be TOTALLY in charge of your life, with the wife's permission of course. Read me in the Our Town magazine.
Right, i have been trying to get on here for 24 hours and have finally succeeded!! (That's trying both from home and from work...but there's nothing wrong with the site ).
I went to see Mike last night, and he is in good spirits. He has been logging onto here, and has seen all of the messages people have posted - suffice to say he is very grateful.
His leg is very swollen at the moment, and he is making the most of the morphine!! He is hoping to come out today or tomorrow.
He isn't in plaster, as the 34cm metal rod will support the bone as it mends.
He has had plenty of get well messages from former team mates and managers, and i think he has been a little overwhelmed at the support that he has received. Of course, the hard work starts now - and hopefully we can support him right back on to the pitch. Even if it's just for one last appearance in the red and white.
He will get down to take in a game as soon as he can.
I will be bringing a card around on Saturday, and if people want to contribute a few quid towards buying Mike a little gift then there will be an opportunity to do so.
Just to add, it is worth mentioning John Yates here who in Mike's words has been brilliant. Mike cannot speak highly enough of John, and would like to see John get some recognition for the support he gave to Mike on Saturday. If you get chance to speak to John at the game then make sure he knows we all think that he is doing a great job for Witton.
Goes without saying that people like John "Yatesy", and the Doc are fantastic people to have on board and are Witton legends as well as being great guys and knowing what they are doing medically. Glad Mike is thinking so positive. You'd expect nothing else from another Witton legend who we all respect. Get well soon Mose!!
