Joyce Robbins has yet to come to terms with the death of her brother, whose nickname is engraved in stone at St James’ Park Bradley Ormesher/Times NewspapersHe would have squirmed at this. Squirmed at the headline, hated his picture, recoiled from the thought that he was at the centre of things, when what he really wanted was to be at the football, there and bearing witness, there because it mattered, there because it happened.
Dave Beasant apologises in advance, because what flashes through his mind is a flush. “It’s not the best of images,” he says, “but what I remember most is making the last of several visits to the toilet and hearing Abide With Me outside. On the loo, a few minutes to go, listening to the traditional FA Cup final hymn, goose pimples rising on my skin.” Somehow, this feels like the perfect beginning. Three decades on, Wimbledon are back at Wembley in the Cup.
A thin crust of snow tops the Boothen End car park. Behind the East Stand, two empty cider bottles are propped against red shutters, a giddy, careless remnant of victory. Just off Sir Stanley Matthews Way, a bronze smile is fixed on the statue of Gordon Banks and it is justified — he is proffering the World Cup for admiration. Inside the club shop, browsers are rifling; the Super Stoke City Sale is on. It is a cold afternoon in Stoke but the sky is pristine and the sun is out.
@Steph_____92@HanoiToon There has certainly been some disinformation. The club, for instance, did not knock back those reports (about an agreement being close). In fact, you could say they encouraged them. I’ll come back with more.
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".
