The company responsible for the use of VAR (Video Assistant Referee) technology has issued an apology for the controversy in Huddersfield Town's Fifth-Round FA Cup clash with Manchester United. The system was heavily criticised over the weekend when Juan Mata had a goal disallowed, having been caught narrowly offside.
Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Jonas Lossl has come out in support of football’s video assistant referee (VAR) technology but believes the system is still far from perfect. David Wagner's side lost 2-0 to Manchester United in the FA Cup fifth round on Saturday and it was the first time VAR had been used at the John Smith’s Stadium. The system has been widely debated by football supporters across the country with fans getting a taste of what the future might hold at the weekend.
Huddersfield Town 's Sean Scannell could be set for an international move – swapping allegiances from the Republic of Ireland to Northern Ireland. According to reports in The Sunday Times, NI boss Michael O'Neill is interested in bringing the former Ireland youth player into his international set-up. Born in Croydon of Irish and Jamaican heritage, Scannell is eligible to play international football for four national teams with Scannell's father from county Armagh.
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".
