COMMENT: Oh, look at that... On the day Phil Jones' 100% run of Premier League appearances ends, Danny Drinkwater is getting on the pitch for Chelsea. Huh. Fancy that...? England. Gareth Southgate. Those sofa riding bandits. The lot of 'em. Their treatment of Danny Drinkwater last week was a disgrace. The threats of his England career being over. His World Cup hopes dashed. They were as much ridiculous as pathetic. Drinkwater didn't deserve any of that.
COMMENT: So what was it? What was the motivation behind that performance? The fans? The atmos? The contract...? Why did Mesut Ozil manage to hit fifth gear from the off yesterday? At 29, there couldn't be a bigger criticism of the German than what we're all asking today. Why Saturday? Why against Tottenham? Why could he do it then - but not before? Against Spurs, Ozil was magnificent. Every inch the £200,000-a-week player he claims to be.
COMMENT: Jose Mourinho and secret talks? The alarm bells have to be ringing for Manchester United fans... But we're not talking about all those rumours regarding Mourinho's agent, Jorge Mendes, meeting with PSG's sports director Antero Henrique to discuss the prospect of a move to Paris next summer. It was the little chat Mourinho had with Benfica officials in Manchester that should be concerning everyone connected to United.
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".
