In the end, even Chelsea held up their end of the bargain. Just Manchester United to go and we can tick off a full house of impressive performances in the Champions League by the five English clubs. Of course the cries of 'The English are coming!' may be premature. And with Barcelona in town, the benchmark to which the Premier League needs to aspire, you feared last week's hastily-concocted thesis that the Premier League was back could come crashing down, deconstructed single handed by Lionel Messi.
‘Antonio, Antonio’ rang out around Stamford Bridge. Chelsea fans have a way of clutching some managers to their heart when they intuit that they have fallen out with the board. It was the same with Carlo Ancelotti and Roberto Di Matteo, though not so much with Andre Villas Boas. And Conte is an easy man for fans to love. The demonstrable passion and energy he exudes is genuinely galvanising. His touch-line antics have been a feature since his arrival.
Arsenal’s ‘catalyst of change’, which is intended to prepare for life after Arsene Wenger, has received fresh impetus with Josh Kroenke, son of owner Stan, moving to London to conduct an in-depth review of all the club activities. Kroenke, 37, has taken a flat in London for three months and is visiting every section of the club in an attempt to gain a better understanding of how they are run.
@AntWildeSocial I do say Jose was the best in 2003 onwards
I would concede LFC have more to do (+ Klopp was found wonting in E.L. Final)
Jose isn’t finished + can still win (Inter 2010)
Was more about thrust of football and how Eng teams have finally caught up
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".
