As one of the most high-profile Catalans in the world, Pep Guardiola's views on the potential for independence are of note. A planned 1 October referendum on the matter has been banned by the Spanish government, leading to mass protests in Catalonia. This is what Guardiola said when he was asked about the issue earlier. "In the end the Catalans people want to exercise the right to vote. "They want to exercise democracy. That is the most important thing.
It is fair to say Manchester City are not impressed by the comments of La Liga president Javier Tebas yesterday. Tebas accused City and Paris St-Germain of 'financial doping' and also accused Spanish club Girona, in which City's parent company, the City Football Group, have a 44% stake, of attempting to "cook the books" by registering the five loan players they have taken from City this summer for far less than their value. City are considering legal action so angered are they at the claims.
Speaking after Murray's Wimbledon exit in July, BBC Sport pundit and six-time Grand Slam winner Boris Becker previously advised Murray to consider skipping the US Open. "Age is only a number, but you only have one body. Andy has to look after his," said Becker. "He has got to think long term, not worry about making the US Open - if he is moving there like he did at Wimbledon, then he won't win it anyway.
When I was sat at home watching #SPOTY 2016, I never could have imagined I’d be sat in the @BBCSport HQ in Salford one year later working on the show’s social media output. This is just a dream. Is this actually my job?! 😍 #grateful#workhttps://t.co/TRHVZFpwfp
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".
