As I said elsewhere - if you missed this pick it up on catch up TV.

Here's the full interview. As you say, a real rollercoaster of emotions. What a brave and brilliant lad.

There must be a window open in the office and dust flying in  :'(

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.

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.

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.

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.....

What a remarkable young man. Very funny too, proud that we have him amongst our ranks.

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.

Must be an epidemic, dust down in the South Pacific as well.

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.
