Things didn’t exactly go according to plan for Tottenham Hotspur or Paris Saint-Germain last season. Though Spurs did well to finish second in the Premier League, they fell out of the title race early and didn’t make it out of the Champions League group stage. PSG also disappointed, finishing behind Monaco in Ligue 1 and collapsing against Barcelona in Champions League. Both start their preparations for hopefully better seasons on Saturday.
Neither the United States or Costa Rica has put together the best performances they’re capable of at the Gold Cup. But they’ve both done enough to avoid defeat in all four of their games, and they know the hard part of the tournament starts in the semifinal on Saturday. Costa Rica created very little going forward against Panama in their quarterfinal, but went through thanks to an own goal.
Preseason is underway for all of Europe’s big clubs, and two of the continent’s biggest sides get their preparation underway against each other. Barcelona and Juventus — who faced off in a UEFA Champions League quarterfinal last season — meet in New Jersey on Saturday night. Because this is the first preseason game for both teams, expect star players to get just 30-to-45 minutes on the pitch, with most game time going to young and fringe players.
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".
