For the second match in a row Real Madrid have dropped points to a team wearing yellow, which bodes well for Sorussia Dortmund's chances against the Spanish league leaders. Borussia Dortmund sent Real Madrid a tweet at the weekend. "You're having a hard time playing teams that wear yellow, do you @realmadriden," it said, in English and in German.
Nuno Espírito Santo was in a terrible state, drunk. That, at least, is what his president thought, and exactly what Nuno wanted him to think. A young goalkeeper at Vitória Guimarães, he had been promised that if anyone came in with a $1m offer he could leave, and one day the Spanish club Deportivo La Coruña did just that - only for António Pimenta Machado to renege.
The door opened and there they were, waiting for him: all of Athletic's players and all the staff, the president too, like a secret birthday party. When Mikel Balenziaga appeared, they started cheering and clapping, piling in to slap him on the back and head. Then they burst into song, bouncing about.
Here is the news: Valencia won on Thursday night. They won 2-1. At home. Against Alavés, a newly promoted team that hasn't been in the first division for a decade. Oh, and it was thanks to an own goal and a late, late penalty. But still, they won, and that really is news.
Valencia would like to appoint Marcelino García Toral as their new coach, but Spanish Football Federation rules stand in their way. Five weeks into the season and two managers have gone already. Mind you, the first of them may not need to worry. He could be back in work already - replacing the second of them.
Atlético Madrid took the free-kick but their captain acted like they hadn't and Koke Resurrección didn't get up. He was still sitting where Arda Turan had left him, two team-mates over him, two opponents in front of him and the referee looking down at him, seven men standing in a five-metre square, when Filipe Luís poked the ball to Gabi Fernández.
The day before Pako Ayestarán flew to Singapore to meet the Valencia owner Peter Lim and discuss becoming the manager at Mestalla, he phoned Gary Neville to ask for his blessing. Neville was the one who had taken him there in the first place, after all, the man who had publicly insisted "when I go, Pako goes", and now Ayesteran was about to take his job.
Cristiano Ronaldo did not celebrate a goal last night, but that does not mean he did not score one - and a huge one at that. The Real Madrid striker curled in an 88th-minute free-kick and immediately lifted his hands apologetically towards the top of the north end of the Santiago Bernabéu where Sporting Lisbon's supporters had fallen quiet for the first time.
Brendan Rodgers said that Barcelona "beat you up with the ball" on a night which he likened the Camp Nou pitch to an ice-rink, the game whizzing past his helpless players. Celtic fell to a 7-0 defeat but their manager insisted that there was "no embarrassment" and that he could not have asked for any more from his 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 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".
