Another transfer window, another important Arsenal player heading out the Emirates exit door. Alexis Sanchez has completed his megabucks move to Manchester United in the latest example of Arsenal selling an influential player to a direct rival in the Premier League. It's been a trend that has continued for over a decade since Ashley Cole moved across London's football fault line to Chelsea. Sometimes, the buyer has got the better deal with their signing going on to achieve great things.
In terms of how to win friends and influence people at Tottenham, getting sent off for two ill-advised fouls against West Ham isn’t exactly the greatest of starts. Yet that’s how Serge Aurier marked his full Premier League debut back in September after Spurs spent £23million to sign him from Paris Saint-Germain. Manager Mauricio Pochettino must have shared the worst fears of Spurs fans that Aurier might turn out to be a pretty expensive liability.
Mauricio Pochettino insisted he is ‘relaxed and calm’ about Tottenham’s top four rivals strengthening their squads this month despite losing ground in the Champions League race. Spurs will be five points off fourth if Liverpool win at Swansea on Monday night after they were held 1-1 at Southampton despite Harry Kane’s 99th Premier League goal.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
