The time has come for Jose Mourinho to change the narrative at Manchester United, because it could start to affect their season. I have respect for him as a manager, his record speaks for itself and when he does something, there is usually a good reason behind it. I’m a bit puzzled about the Paul Pogba situation though, because on the one hand he seems to be suggesting there’s a problem, and a lot of people are reading between the lines to believe that means he wants him out.
I pity poor Arsenal in the League Cup final at Wembley today because Sergio Aguero will be simmering close to boiling point. He may look like someone who takes everything in his stride, but I can tell you he will be quietly feeling something close to fury after what happened at Wigan this week. Apart from everything else, he’s a centre-forward, and he missed chances he’d normally bury.
People have given Paul Pogba so much stick, but I want to defend him a little. There’s a lot said about professional footballers, but not so much about their mentality. The players at the top are there because they have ego, they have desire. They have belief and pride. Pogba will be bursting with pride. And that pride will be hurting like hell when he isn’t playing well, when things are not going for him.
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".
