Mikael Lustig will drive the bus that Sweden parked against Italy all the way to the World Cup in Russia next summer. But despite the Scandinavians’ success toppling the play-off favourites from the global stage for the first time in 60 years, he admits Brendan Rodgers would never let Celtic play the same way against PSG in Paris. Lustig set social media alight in Milan in midweek with his impassioned pre-match flare-up that sparked the Swedes.
Brendan Rodgers admits having four players at the World Cup Finals could be bittersweet for Celtic’s Champions League hopes – and he’ll tackle the problem in the January transfer window. Aussie Tom Rogic and Sweden’s Mikael Lustig both made the Russia showpiece through the play-offs this week. And with 62-cap Cristian Gamboa there with Costa Rica and a fit Erik Sviatchenko expected to be part of Denmark’s squad, it leaves gaps in Rodgers’ plans.
The BBC’s annual Price of Football survey came out last week. If your inner geek has a spare hour, go ahead and drown yourself in an ocean of stats. But ask yourself this while you’re doing it. Is it actually price that’s important to you as a football supporter? Or is it value? That’s the problem with the numbers. They might measure the cost but they tell you nothing about the experience. The fact, for example, that the price of a pie is still even used as one of their key measuring devices.
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".
