COMMENT: It was worth it, Chelsea. It really was. After all the anger. The angst. Diego Costa has his move to Atletico Madrid. And it's Chelsea which have finished this saga on top. In a matter of three years and two Premier League titles, Chelsea have more than doubled what they invested to bring Costa to London. In June 2014, he arrived for £32m. Yesterday, Atletico agreed to take him back - for £67m. A club record. So much for those stories of Costa's AWOL antics driving down his valuation.
COMMENT: Two pay-rises in ten months. A third now on it's way. And he's running around for a Champions League club. All in all, Rob Segal can feel he's done right by Dele Alli. And the Tottenham midfielder, no doubt, feels the same... Yet, it's not enough. Not for Alli. Not for his family. And not at this stage in his career. Segal's gone. A relationship which oversaw Alli's move from MK Dons to Spurs - via a trip to Liverpool - now on the rocks. So why the change? And why now?
COMMENT: Manchester United are better than this. At least, they should be. The fans recognised it. The manager also - well, to a point. This was no ordinary game. Wayne Rooney deserved better. Much, much better... It should've been an occasion. A memory to last a lifetime. For Rooney. For United. For everyone at Old Trafford. Thirteen years a United player. Three as captain. And the club marks his first time back with... well... nothing? The Theatre of Dreams? Not on Sunday's evidence.
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".
