It’s a pretty mouth-watering prospect, the Liverpool front three for next season so far. In behind? Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum and Adam Lallana can bring work-rate, passing range and tactical acumen while a back four is still likely to be enhanced with a couple of new arrivals. The eagle-eyed among you - and history suggests that’s most - will have spotted that the line-up above finds no place for Philippe Coutinho or Emre Can.
Liverpool midfielder Emre Can is likely to miss Germany’s concluding group game in the Confederations Cup after picking up an injury in training. Can, 23, had to leave the session with Joachim Low’s team after his studs became stuck in the grass. His manager however insists the problem is a minor one as his team prepare to face Cameroon on Sunday at 4pm. Can has been impressive as Germany won their first game against Australia before drawing against Chile, who lead the group on goal difference.
Alvaro Arbeloa has revealed that Xabi Alonso understands his own decision to retire “better than anyone else” as he announced his decision to end his career at the age of 34. The Spanish full-back is following his fellow ex-Red into retirement after both going on to huge success at Real Madrid. Alonso played his last game just over a month ago as Bayern Munich beat Freiburg in their final match of the Bundesliga 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".
