Yaya Toure has been, and will always be, a hero of mine. When City made their move to sign him back in 2010 from Barcelona for around £24million, I was beside myself with excitement. At that stage in City’s transformation, from those years of failure to the European powerhouse they are today, to sign a player like Yaya Toure still seemed no more than a dream.
Juan Mata wants to sign a new Manchester United contract. And the Spain midfielder believes he could follow Ryan Giggs' lead and play until he is 40. Mata's contract runs out next summer though United have the option of extended it for a further year. The 29-year-old is happy at the club - and with his life in Manchester - and told ESPN FC he wants to stay at Old Trafford. When asked if he would like to sign a new long-term deal and finish his career at United, he said: "Why not?
Nicolas Otamendi says Manchester City can cope without John Stones. The England defender suffered a hamstring injury in last weekend's win over Leicester and faces at least a month on the sidlelines. The blow came just as the Yorkshireman had been enjoying his best run of form since joining the club from Everton in 2016. But Otamendi believes City - who kept a clean sheet in the Champions League win over Feyenoord on Wednesday without Stones - will deal with the situation.
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".
