They have a taste for silverware at Leicester City, and, under the revitalising management of Claude Puel, they may just be a decent outside contender for the oldest trophy in the land. Their progress into the fourth round of the FA Cup was simultaneously routine and historic, as they brushed aside Fleetwood Town in this third-round replay, with the aid of the first goal awarded by video technology in English football.
The first goal awarded by video technology in English football – as historic, “I was there” moments go, it might not quite rank with the fall of the Berlin Wall or the Beatles’ first gig at the Cavern Club, but nonetheless, there was a sense of a quite fundamental, irrevocable shift in the fabric of the national sport at the King Power Stadium last night.
Last week, Antonio Conte was reminiscing about the time he tried to sign Alexis Sánchez during his spell as Juventus head coach. The season was 2010-11, and the targeting of Sánchez was a no-brainer. Here was a player who offered goals and assists; who was proven in that particular league and was playing for a rival further down the food chain at Udinese. Of course, Sánchez ended up at Barcelona, then Arsenal, and though he is available now, Chelsea are not part of the chase.
At Leicester tonight and, as a VAR agnostic, thought positives far outweighed negatives. Pretty clear what was going on, minimal time lost, little deadening of atmosphere in the stadium - crowd actually got into it - and crucially, a correct verdict reached at a pivotal moment
Some v good, experienced coaches in Wales’s Nations League div. Possible that Giggs lands in a group with, say, Martin O’Neill; Turkey’s Mircea Lucescu, who transformed Shakhtar; & Sweden’s Janne Andersson, who masterminded the playoff win v Italy. Tough company for a neophyte
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".
