The FA Cup gets written off, even sold off to sponsors, but its enduring appeal is rooted in enthralling ties like this when two sets of players fought hard for 120 minutes in freezing conditions and when the drama produced myriad plot lines, especially for a triumphant Chelsea. Chelsea’s remarkable cup pedigree was again highlighted and this will be their 27th semi-final since 1998-99.
When Will Grigg scored against Manchester City, the decisive goal meant more than the pride and joy of pushing Wigan Athletic towards this weekend’s quarter-finals of the FA Cup. It meant more than the ensuing amusement at the impact it would have on his neighbours in Cheshire, split between City and United fans. Grigg’s well-taken goal against such illustrious opponents meant that everyone was reminded of why he became the centre of the infernally catchy Will Grigg’s On Fire hit in 2016.
Gareth Southgate will hold a meeting with his England players next week to discuss the vigilance of VAR on the World Cup and to warn them against diving to win penalties. Southgate announced a 27-man squad yesterday for the friendlies against Holland and Italy, and it is not a collection that will have Brazil, France or Germany quaking in their luminous boots at the World Cup.
Frustrating for #lcfc, especially only one min added on, and no consolation for them that this was one of the best FA Cup ties for a while. Both teams going for it. But #cfc edged it. Kante superb. And their fans love Conte.
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".
