Football writer and author Jonathan Wilson joins This Is Anfield to analyse the Reds' opening day performance and Jurgen Klopp's tactics against Arsenal. Where to begin? There are certain games that seem to defy rational analysis and, even allowing for the fact that Jurgen Klopp 's approach probably lends itself to the frenetic, Liverpool's opening match of the season was one from which you'd be reluctant to draw firm conclusions, tactical or otherwise.
Nine years ago on Monday, Chris Coleman was appointed manager of Real Sociedad. It was not a happy experience.

In a world of superclubs, just what is the point of ordinary teams? "Perhaps, in this age of quasi-franchises and superclubs, when the structure of the competitions and the nature of globalisation makes the rich richer so they exist at an impossible remove to the rest, this is all that remains of the traditional mode of support: football not as an expression of provincial industrial pride, but as a reminder of it."

No single figure in the post-War game has so shaped how the game is played and there is a sense in which the two Champions Leagues Barcelona won under Pep Guardiola were a consecration of his legacy: a player to whom he gave his debut honing his ideas and producing a team widely recognised as one of the greatest there has ever been.
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 politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney 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
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.
