Title: Moin Younis
Post by: Toronto Villa on November 08, 2017, 11:39:35 PM
I didn't see this covered anywhere but this young lad is incredible. Loves the Villa and an absolute credit to his family, Acorns and us. Nice touch by Beckham and during the awards a lovely moment with Prince William.

Well done young man!!

Did anyone see when Jamie Vardy asked him what he thought of West Brom?  He looked shocked and said something on the lines of this will be going out, I can't say things like that on TV. Top guy and one of our own.

i think he disliked West Brom more than our esteemed leader on here

Was he the lad that was interviewed with Joleon Lescott when he was still with WBA?

I think the Albion players were touring the Children's Hospital before Christmas a few years ago. Moin was being interviewed for Midlands Today and Lescott was in the background. Lescott hugged him and Moin told him where to go because he was a Villa fan and then kissed the badge on his Villa dressing gown.

A top lad and I hope the club do something to mark his achievement.

Great stuff from the lad, Becks and King Willie.  Best bit was where he looks as if he's about to say "f**kin ell" when Becks walks in and manages to stop himself.

As I said elsewhere - if you missed this pick it up on catch up TV. The bit above is only part of it and the whole thing was brilliant. Theres a thread on facebook where everyone agrees he was the best thing on the whole show and there are hundreds and hundreds of posts. Everyone saying how they went from laughing to crying and back again during that section. It really was superb.
Its only the second one of the evening, just after the first break.

What a top lad and top bloke Beckham is - even if his hair is a disgrace :)

Fantastic young lad.

One of the most passionate Villa fans I ever seen. Does his family, the club, and all fellow football fans, proud.

Post by: Des Little on November 09, 2017, 02:04:39 PM
What a truly inspirational lad. If he wants it, and is able to, he needs to be a big part of this club. As someone posted on Twitter, hes every bit a legend as any player that has worn our cherished shirt.

Edit - it must be an age thing, but worth adding that Id be in more awe meeting Peter McParland (which Im proud to say I have) than David Beckham!

fucking hell the start of that is tough to watch. Especially when you have little kids. The pain he must be in is just unimaginable. What a brave and inspirational young man.

I like the idea of life throwing something good at you, every now and then, so you have to be patient. I'm very glad Moin got at least 2 good days out of Pride of Britain. As others have said, he totally deserves this award.

Moin is brilliant. Check out the video of him at the children's hospital a few years back when Lescott visited (when he was at WBA).

He was doing some player interviews on the youtube channel in the Sherwood era.

Gabby is his favourite player btw.....

Not all Villa fans, but Harry Moseley, Stephen Sutton and Mo have all done the city and the wider area very proud with their bravery in the face of such adversity.

He is inspirational.

Sat next to him at a game a few years ago, I think it was the Leicester 2-1 game when Hutton scored.  He is quite a character and even though Gabby might be his favourite player it didn't stop him from giving him dogs abuse during the game. Had us all laughing and crying in our house the other night.

Thanks for this guys. Has he ever been out on the pitch?
Some people have earned the Holte in full voice just before kick off singing "There's only one..."

I've had so much happen this year I've not got to a game in ages, but wouldn't want to miss that.

No dust here. But Im cutting some very strong onions which is affecting my eyes.

He was the absolute highlight of the show. An incredible human being and amazing humour in what must be horrific pain.

Id have as much admiration whatever football club he supported. Some things are bigger than the game. But the fact hes one of ours makes me proud.
