URI-KA Uri Geller to set up football team on Scots island as spoonbender appeals for players to sign up
BARMY Uri Geller is setting up a football team on his Scots island after turning it into a micro-nation.
The Israeli spoonbender bought the Island of Lamb, on the Firth of Forth, ten years ago and people can now become citizens.
Now he’s announced that for just one dollar anyone can claim Lamb nationality and become eligible for its “national” side.
Geller, 75, said: “It’s as big as a football pitch. We’ll put up the goalposts and play with my logo.
“We have a flag, we have a constitution and we have an anthem. And now I’m going to have a football team.”
The music for the anthem – entitled My Island – was written by the great grandad of one of Uri’s pals.

"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."
