Villa 2-0 Swansea pint-sized pundit reaction: Acorns Moin on Swans win


Villa welcomed a pint-sized pundit into the commentary box for the Swansea game and he wowed listeners with his enthusiastic and insightful style.

Acorns Moin Younis, 12, joined Jack Woodward and Andy Blair behind the microphone for the Swans encounter.

Moin was brilliant with his bubbly reports on the action and you could even hear his enthusiastic chanting and cheering in the background, when not on air.

Moin has a life-limiting condition called Epidermolysis Bullosa, or 'EB', a very rare genetic condition in which blisters form both internally and externally on his body from the slightest knock or rub, causing painful, open wounds.

As you will be able to tell by the commentary, Moin is a huge Villa fan and through the club's partnership with Acorns, he enjoyed this money-can't-buy experience as he watched the game alongside national and regional sports journalists.

He was hit when his live punditry went out to AVTV listeners.

John Flanner said: "Moin is doing a great job! Let's hear more of him as he could become a legend."

Jason Boyeskie, from Arkansas, USA, added: "Your third announcer is class and better than most announcers we have here.

"Acorns should fly him over here for a tryout!"

Below are some of his thoughts from the game.

Moin on atmosphere before the game: "It's absolutely wicked! I love it. Listen to all the noise. Hopefully there's more to come when the game starts!"

Moin on his match prediction: "I'm going for a 2-1 win to Villa. Come on Villa!"

Moin on Brad Guzan's double save: "They were amazing. Paul Lambert has done a good job in bringing him in."

Moin on Matt Lowton's goal: "That was sensational man! I don't think the keeper knew what was happening. He walloped it! That was just amazing."

Moin's half-time thoughts: "Villa played real good. They need to keep up that form now and throughout the season."

Moin on joining the groundsmen on the pitch at half-time: "It was fun. Some of the players shaked my hands and others tapped me on the head. It was great."

Moin on positive emails about his commentary style: "Wow! I can't believe people like me."

Moin on his half-time chips: "They are from Villa so obviously they are going to be nice."

Moin on Brett Holman: "He's been brilliant. I think he should be man of the match."

Moin on Christian Benteke: "He's incredible! He's a new player and looks great for the future."

Moin after Brett Holman announced as man of the match: "I told you! I knew it!"

Moin at full-time:"Villa played real well. They dominated possession and I hope they can carry on like that. What a day I've had! It was great. I can't ask for more."
