COMMENT: They deserve eachother, right? Alexis Sanchez, Manchester United and that 500,000 quid-a-week salary. It's not about ambition. Football. This move is just about money and greed, right...? ... after all, why else would Alexis be choosing United over Manchester City? The champions-elect. With Pep Guardiola at the helm. Six months ago he was ready to sign on the dotted line. So why not now? Clearly the answer is cash...Well, not quite.
COMMENT: Give the crown to Manchester City. It's over. The title race is done and dusted. Who says? Why, Jose Mourinho of course...For the Manchester United manager, with still half the season to run, it's now all about finishing runners up. This week's events are proof of that. Now it's about taking out those who threaten automatic Champions League qualification. For Antonio Conte, the Chelsea manager, this week's nasty exchange with Mourinho was personal.
COMMENT: If evidence is needed of where Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool stands today, just consider the devastation, the turmoil that Philippe Coutinho's sale has left......oh wait. Scratch that. The place is still standing. Klopp's squad has barely taken a hit. And Liverpool are a staggering €160m better off. Come Monday, Coutinho will pull on a Barcelona shirt at a packed Nou Camp. But Liverpool? They won't skip a beat. This is nowt like the Luis Suarez sale. It's a different time. A different era.
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".
