Shortly after the bathetic sight of Sam Allardyce slinking out of Wembley without having ever sat in its dugout as England manager, the Football Association's recently appointed chairman emerged blinking into the flashbulbs for a traditional rite of passage.
The Football Association chairman, Greg Clarke, has promised to "learn the lessons" of Sam Allardyce's 67 days in charge of England and is likely to introduce "a lot more scrutiny" of commercial arrangements for staff. Clarke also revealed the FA is conducting a review of its disciplinary processes that include looking at the rules around agents and transfers.
Sir Alex Ferguson is boycotting the BBC in protest at a documentary that turned the spotlight on links between the Manchester United manager and his football agent son Jason. The United manager, well known for his fiery temper, is refusing to speak to BBC journalists after the corporation broadcast a documentary earlier this year examining business dealings between the pair.
Somewhere in the Football Association's Wembley archives, next to the battered bid books for the failed attempts to host 2006 and 2018 World Cup tournaments and Charles Hughes's coaching manual, sit the files from a series of investigations in the middle of the last decade into a unique period in football's recent history.
The Football Association hierarchy are holding a series of emergency meetings at Wembley to determine the future of the England manager, Sam Allardyce, after allegations he offered advice on how to circumvent the governing body's rules on player transfers.
The Team Sky principal, Sir Dave Brailsford, painstakingly attempted to wrestle with the questions assailing him with increasing ferocity since the so-called Fancy Bears dumped the TUE information of Sir Bradley Wiggins online. No, he did not believe that Team Sky had done anything wrong.
The cocksure Bradley Wiggins, the one whose enigmatic personality and supreme sporting talent had made him one of Britain's best loved sportsmen, was gone. In his place, one nervously trying to remember "lines to take" in response to a series of soft questions from an interviewer who - perhaps understandably following another tumultuous week in Westminster - had his mind on other things.
Sir Bradley Wiggins has broken his silence surrounding the use of powerful banned substances taken with permission for medical reasons before some of his biggest races, insisting that he never sought to gain an unfair advantage.
Outfought and often outplayed by an estimable Accrington Stanley side, down to 10 men and facing extra time, half-time substitute Dimitri Payet positioned the ball 25 yards out in the sixth minute of injury time. What came next wasn't a surprise but might just kickstart West Ham's season.
The Football Association has insisted Brexit will not derail its plans to hold the final stages of Euro 2020 at Wembley, hoping it will act as precursor to an England bid to host the 2028 European Championship.
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
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".
