Speaking to Roberto Martinez the other day about Anderlecht v Celtic and the Belgium manager throws in an aside. “I work with a squad of about 55 players in my head,” he says. “Just the 55?” I ask. “Any chance of lending us 20?”Joking aside, though, the kind of depth Belgium have as a nation and their ascent to the top five in the world rankings – to the very top in 2015 – has come about entirely by design, not by accident. Design built on the back of finals failure around the turn of the century.
A last-ditch move to put the brakes on the SFA ’s Project Brave looks set to fail after an angry Hampden meeting. Hosting seven of the Premiership’s 12 clubs earlier this month, chief executive Stewart Regan threatened to let the ‘big five’ in the process – Celtic, Rangers, Aberdeen, Hearts and Hibs – go it alone if the rest didn’t want to tow the line.
Brendan Rodgers last night admitted the clashes with Anderlecht hold the key to Celtic’s ambitions to play in Europe beyond Christmas – and he’d take a draw on Wednesday right now. The games with the Belgian champs are being seen by some as a straight two-leg knockout for third spot in Group B behind PSG and Bayern. And the Hoops boss admits that simplifies the task they face in the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium.
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".
