BENDER GELLER CURED MY DODGY KNEE
29th April 1998
Morley praise for healer Uri as Hoddle sues him
By HUGH SOUTHON
ENGLAND coach Glenn Hoddle last night confirmed he is to sue psychic Uri Geller for libel and malicious falsehood.
But today we can reveal that the famous spoon bender, who claimed in a Sunday newspaper that Hoddle had visited him at his Berkshire mansion a couple of years ago, has at least ONE admirer in the game.
Geller once cured Reading striker Trevor Morley of a nasty cyst on his knee. And while Hoddle denies ever calling on the psychic and will be seeking a six-figure sum in damages, Morley remains grateful to the Israeli.
He explained: “Uri laid his hands on me for eight minutes in a darkened room and the growth at the back of my knee disappeared. It was remarkable and I’ve got nothing but good to say -about him.”
It was the only time the 37-year-old had drawn on Geller’s mystic powers during an injury-ravaged career.
But now he wishes he’d used him a bit more frequently. And Morley revealed: “He used to come on to the training ground, preaching the power of positive thought at us.
“But when he burst into the dressing room at half time during one match, it didn’t go down too well with the manager and I’ve not seen him since.”

"Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity."

"The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues."

"The Geller Effect is one of those "para" phenomena which changed the world of phusics. What the most outstanding physicists of the last decades of this country colud grasp only as theoretical implication, Uri brought as fact into everyday life.."

"I Have watched Uri Geller... I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again."
