Uri Geller helps Newcastle United beat relegation from the Premier League
Uri Geller has claimed he helped Newcastle United beat relegation.
The paranormalist and psychic has today told the Chronicle he ‘successfully transmitted positive mental energy’ which made it possible for the players to beat the drop. We reported on Friday how Uri, who once famously helped the Magpies banish their London jinx, offered to help John Carver’s men ahead of today’s crunch clash with West Ham. And after Newcastle’s 2-0 victory he said he was convinced he played a part in the result.
“Since 2001 when I helped Newcastle beat Arsenal in London 3-1, I sharpened my abilities through advanced technology. There is no doubt in my mind that once again I which helped Newcastle to achieve victory today,” he said.
“I have to keep my methods a secret but what I can reveal is that my powers combined with the internet and Google Earth got the team to win.”
Uri, who started following the Magpies through his Toon-mad solicitor and best friend.
The 68-year-old also offered to travel to Tyneside to give a stirring pre-match team talk. But manager John Carver did not respond.
Uri added: “When I saw that Carver is not responding I did not take ‘no’ for an answer, out of passion and determination for Newcastle United I unleashed even greater positive energy. I am happy for the fans I am happy for Newcastle United and of course I would love to keep my honorary Geordie title.”
In 2001, Uri helped Newcastle end a run of 29 matches without a win in the capital as they triumphed 3-1 at Arsenal.
During the match, Uri ran around the iconic Highbury stadium 11 times – the sum of two and nine in 29 – in a move he promised would see the Magpies end their London jinx.
Uri had vowed to break the curse after the Chronicle called on his aid following failed attempts by exorcists and voodoo witch doctors.
He said: “I remember after the game Arsene Wenger said there must have been a sorcerer at work. Somebody made me an honorary Geordie and I still have the scarf made for me.”
As well as his Highbury exploits, Uri also claims to have been in a helicopter above Wembley stadium and made Scotland’s Gary McAllister miss a penalty against England during Euro ‘96.
“I made the ball move and that was unethical,” said Uri. “I won’t do anything like this again but I can use positive energy to try and help Newcastle win.”
Author and paranormal expert Uri is a former paratrooper who first entered the public arena as a model in the sixties.
But he rose to fame as a psychic in the seventies and shocked the world with his apparent ability to bend, break and soften metal and other solids using the power of his mind, most notably household cutlery such as spoons – something he’d been able to do since the age of five.
He also places great importance on the mind’s positive power to heal the body.
Uri is a mind-power coach to industrialists, Premier League footballers, ice skaters, Formula One drivers and racing cyclists.

“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 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.”
