It could have been Jordi Cruyff. Just before the goal that catapulted David Beckham into global stardom, the Dutchman - who was making his Manchester United debut - had his own shot at the spectacular. On 80 minutes and with United holding a comfortable 2-0 lead against Wimbledon on the opening day of the 1996/97 Premier League season, Cruyff spotted goalkeeper Neil Sullivan - who was really pushing his luck that day - off his line. With the keeper stranded, Cruyff’s effort drifted off target.
Arsenal shook off recent troubles to beat Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday Sandra Mailer/REX/ShutterstockArsène Wenger says switching formation has helped cure Arsenal’s players of the anxiety that has crept into their play and derailed their season. Wenger has rarely changed the way his team play during his time as Arsenal manager but he has used three central defenders in each of the last two games, with Nacho Monreal and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain playing as wing backs.
There has been plenty of visible frustration from the stands at the Emirates this season, and that has been echoed on the pitch by Alexis Sánchez — still the one person in the Arsenal team you’d back to take charge in a losing situation, or chase a lost cause. Certain stories emerging from the Arsenal training ground suggest that the 28-year-old has grown increasingly frustrated with his side’s lack of progress this season.
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".
