Ten-man AC Milan were held to a goalless draw by Genoa at the San Siro on Sunday, with Leonardo Bonucci receiving his marching orders in the first half. To their credit, the Rossoneri pushed on for the win despite the setback, but they were unable to find a breakthrough as the pressure remains on Vincenzo Montella.
A BIT like solar-powered cars, self-sustaining communes and the flat tax, all-out pressing football is an appealing idea but impractical in the real world. Hard, high pressing is fun to watch, it keeps your team on the front foot, it enables you to play high up the pitch and when you do force a mistake and get the ball back, you are usually pretty close to the opposition goal. But there is a problem. Continuous pressing is tiring. It can cause you to commit plenty of fouls.
It was last week that Italian media and this blog discussed Douglas Costa and his slow start at Juve, struggling to provide the decisive action required to make the impact expected. The player responded in the best way possible, scoring the goal against Lazio before delivering the winning assist against Sporting Lisbon to earn the precious three points in the Champions League. Boasting speed and enviable technique, Costa had to come good at some point.
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".
