Uri in for it now, Switzerland!

To my compatriots who are anxious about the big World Cup qualifier with Switzerland today, fret no longer - we have psychic power on our side!

That's right, psychic Uri Geller is going to use his powers to help Ireland beat the Swiss by flying a helicopter over Lansdowne Road just before kick-off to focus the energy of fans watching the match on TV.

The psychic said while nobody could predict the outcome of the match, the science behind positive thinking was very tangible and he wanted to focus the consciousness of Ireland fans to help their team win.

"I’m not a miracle worker and it’s a very difficult match.

"They need to be positive and believe in themselves," he said.

"It is down to the talent of the players, but it’s also up to the fans to give that extra support."

Geller said he had visited Ireland on a number of occasions for business and wanted to even things out after helping some of the Israeli football squad ahead of the match they drew with Ireland.

"The Irish people are one of the kindest and most cheerful and nicest people that I have ever met."

Hmm. I don't know what to make of this. Especially since Geller's own country, Israel, are not out of the hunt for a play-off spot. Then again, we need all the help we can get in this game so I'm not going to knock it!

So wherever you are planning to watch the big game this evening, just remember - think positive thoughts!
