A message from Mishi (@DulwichMishi) “Thank you for the kind messages, I’ll be hopefully out of hospital in about a week. Hopefully will be back at football soon and hopefully by bus not ambulance. I’m not dead yet!” Thanks to @finnrbond for this!
Thank you everyone for your amazing support, not just our fans but football friends all around the south east and beyond. In truth I do not even recall the day of the game I was st, never mind the heart attack itself. One thing for sure, if it wasn’t for the soldiers working on me I would not have pulled through, so I shall always be grateful to the Royal Engineers. It’s a long road back to fitness, and I’m m nowhere near strong enough to pop down to cheer on The Hamlet yet. I am struggling to walk with a stick at the the moment, and my speech is a bit croaky and quiet due to having one of those tracheotomy hole in the throat thingies... once again thsnk you all who have shown love and concern.

Glad you are on the mend, mate. Been thinking of you x

Dulwich Hamlet never do well in the Cup (and Mishi)
Just reading through this thread, very emotional to do so, the love and support shown from all over is very humbling. I am hoping to get to a home game very soon, but please excuse me if I try to be as incognito as possible, if that’s possible! I am still very weak but it’s better than the alternative. I have no idea when I’ll be well enough to get to an away match yet. I am walking slowly with a stick, but am step by step getting slowly stronger. I have no idea what the future holds nor the timescale of getting better, as it’s still early days. The first aim, apart from football, is to get well enough to get back to work. So I hope to be at Champion Hill very soon, albeit very sedately in the seats.

Lovely to see you briefly today Mishi. I hope you didn’t think I was being rude by only speaking to you for a short time but I didn’t want you to be overwhelmed by people speaking to you, when all you wanted to do was watch the football quietly. Hope to see you on 27th March.

I hope people didn’t mind me trying to be under the radar yesterday by pulling in a favour & ‘hiding’ in the directors box. It was the longest I’d been out since leaving hospital, & I was really tired after, I appreciate everyone’s thoughts but it would have been very tough mentally, never mind physically, to chat to everyone. It’s a long slow journey for me, but hopefully I will get there...

Would anyone like to write an obituary for Brixton Buzz? It would be fitting to have a full tribute on the site. I knew him for about 12 years but I'm sure there's people here with more stories to tell,

As a Wealdstone fan I would like to pass on my condolences to Mishi's family and the wider Dulwich clan. For outsiders, he was Mr Dulwich. No one epitomized old school Dulwich more than he and that he loved the new Dulwich, embracing everything that it brought, was wonderful. It could well have been easy to see the newbies as taking away his Dulwich, but he rightly saw the re-birth of a non-league giant. He was incredibly magnanimous when we won the play-off final at Champion Hill when it would have been easy to be bitter and twisted. I know I would have been.

Wealdstone and Dulwich are very different but the same. Fanbases that are in many ways the very opposite of each other, but there is mutual respect for two old school clubs that are making a success of London non-league football and how they inter-act with their wider communities in their own way.

I will miss his irrelevant tweets.

RIP Mishi.

Nice piece here:

We pay tribute to Mr Dulwich Hamlet
Anyone who has been watching our league prior to the last two seasons will undoubtedly have come across Dulwich Hamlet supporter Mishi Morath. Mishi was a lifelong supporter and volunteer at Champion Hill (and, of course, for a short period at Imperial Fields, a time when he even admitted his grudging respect for Tooting & Mitcham United), and a dedicated follower of Non League football; a man who, as he would freely admit, would travel to just about any field in London and the South East to watch twenty two men kick a ball around. If you didn't meet him at Hamlet, then there is every likelihood that you would have seen him at another ground near you- or being interviewed on your TV last month as Hamlet entertained Carlisle United in the FA Cup.

Mishi had a heart attack last year- typically, whilst watching a football match- and had a slow recovery, but before the end of the season was back watching Hamlet and was present at a number of our Playoff Semi-Finals and Finals. Sadly he was taken ill again last week and rushed to Kings College Hospital, and we've just heard that he passed away this morning.

We'd like to send our love and sympathies to his family, to his Hamlet family, and to all of his friends- and we were all his friends, as we all shared his passion for our Non-League game. Our lives will be poorer for his passing (we'll even miss his regular weekly moan at us about electronic programmes) but have been enriched by his presence in them for so many years.

Rest in Peace Mishi.

Only knew him as an outsider browsing your boards but he stood out as a character and the real deal non-league supporter. RIP.
