Uri Geller and the Royals
KICK OFF TO GLORY – The BBC Tv cameras filmed Uri holding Friday’s copy of the Evening Post andconcentrating on his psychic powers. Fans, too, gave Reading a mind-blowing boost at 3pm
SONNING spoonbender Uri Geller helped spur on the Royals by generating fan power during a magical Saturday afternoon.
The psychic guru joined forces with the Evening Post to call on Reading fans to use the power of positive thought to give their team a mind-blowing boost at 3pm.
Fans were asked to place their hands on a football printed on the cover of Friday’s Evening Post at kick off, look into Uri’s eyes and chant “Win Reading Win”.
Uri said he felt a huge surge of psychic energy at 3pm.
He was inundated by e-mails from fans saying they knew Reading would come back after Brentford scored because they too had felt the force.
He said: “It is fantastic. I didn’t have any doubts. I knew the fans would go for it when I saw Friday’s Evening Post.”
“I’m very happy for the town, the fans, the citizens of Reading and John Madejski. It will be a huge boost of confidence, fun, and self belief for the town. Everyone will be determined to make it into the Premiership next season because of the positive feel-good factor. Of course, I will be willing them on.”
The experiment could well be seen on the BBC as Uri was filmed by a documentary team for an hour-long programme to be screened later this year.
He added that Reading’s return to form had coincided with his reunion with John Madejski. The pair fell out several years ago and Uri says that the team then began to struggle.
When the psychic auctioned a car he was surprised that Mr Madejski generously bought it to swell charity coffers. He said: “I called him and when we met we shook hands and hugged and from that day Reading started winning.”
