It will be quite a comedown for Tottenham Hotspur’s players: from Tuesday night at the Allianz Stadium, Turin, to Sunday afternoon at the Crown Oil Arena, better known as Spotland, Rochdale. The FA Cup has a pleasing way of bringing top-class footballers down to earth, but it also affords an opportunity to reach for the stars.
It was a fairytale, the culmination of one man’s impossible dream. The corner was swung in, Ben Watson got his head to the ball, the net bulged and Wigan Athletic’s supporters roared like never before. When the final whistle came moments later, Dave Whelan jumped for joy, left his seat in the Royal Box and beckoned his grandsons to follow him down to the Wembley pitch, where they celebrated with him and watched as eventually, dewy-eyed, he got his hands on the FA Cup and held it to his chest.
Three games played, eleven goals scored, two goals conceded, two spectacular wins and one hugely creditable draw. For the Premier League elite, a resurgence on the Champions League stage has been long overdue. This week has reinforced the feeling that it has finally begun.
@sistoney67@ForeverYoungAD My feeling is that he would have been fine with it for as long as he felt motivated/satisfied by football, but that sooner rather than later he would simply have turned his back on it, even if he was doing really well for United’s first team
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".
