As the managerial sack race intensifies and Ronald Koeman and Craig Shakespeare find themselves clutching their P45’s, two clubs are on the lookout for a new manager to save their seasons. Leicester City, desperate to reclaim their fairytale success of 2015-16, decided that despite a run of games against the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United, their start wasn’t good enough, while Everton axed Koeman after a 5-2 humbling at home to the Gunners.
When it comes to Italian sport, you instantly think of their legendary footballers. The names Paolo Maldini, Gigi Buffon and Francesco Totti are all etched in Italian folklore, but there’s another collection of heroes that play an entirely different sport to the one we know as “the beautiful game”. If you were to assign it a nickname, you’d be more tempted to think of words like ‘brutal’, ‘barbaric’ and ‘violent’ to describe the scenes you’ll see in a game of Calcio Storico.
If you know your football, you’ll know that Celtic famously lifted the European Cup in Lisbon back in 1967. They were the first British team to conquer Europe, and all but one of the 15-man squad were born within 10 miles of Celtic Park (the other was born just 30 miles away). The Scottish giants beat Inter Milan 2-1 at the Estadio Nacional, and the ‘Lisbon Lions’ became a huge part of Celtic’s history.
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".
