In the Mirror, Sergio Romero has said the obvious and right thing about David de Gea’s future. He said that he wants him to stay, even if it means fewer games for him. He probably doesn’t mean it, but can you imagine if he’d said, ‘Actually, I’d be much happier if De Gea left for Real Madrid, because if I’m honest, my career is the most important thing in the world to me beyond my family, understandably so.’Jose Mourinho has also said exactly the right thing about wanting to stay at United.
There’s a chance that Anthony Martial could be leaving Manchester United after just a couple of seasons. For United, it’s bit of a disappointment, as he promised so much in his first season with Louis van Gaal, and then struggled to make an impact or positive impression under Jose Mourinho. The temptation is to always give more time to younger players, and Martial has the talent to be one of the best. With Mourinho, he rarely indulges younger players the time to learn how to be more effective.
Manchester United and Real Madrid are at each other’s throats about the logistics of their summer tours. They are both in the United States for some pre-season money-raising friendlies, and have clashed as they both maintain a base in Los Angeles. There has been arguments about training grounds and hotels, amongst other tedious minutiae. It all makes for an exciting background for the next month-long back-and-forth over David de Gea, as the two clubs posture over where he’s headed.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
