When Napoli last came to the Etihad Stadium, it was a landmark moment for Manchester City. It was 2011 and after 43 years they were once more competing for the European Cup. For the first time they would hear the Champions League anthem in the flesh and they could consider themselves as part of Europe’s elite. Six years later, when the men of Naples returned to east Manchester, the club and their fans could think other thoughts.
The only regret during a first half of fantasy football was that Malcolm Allison did not live to see this. During United’s long years of dominance, they would recall Manchester City’s one match in the European Cup. It was 1968 and Allison declared that his club would unleash themselves on the ‘cowards of Europe’. They lasted one tie, knocked out by Fenerbahce in the first round.
The Napoli manager, Maurizio Sarri, said that if Manchester City continue to play the dazzling way they performed in the opening 25 minutes against his side tonight, they have as much chance of winning the Champions League as Barcelona or Real Madrid. Although the Serie A leaders fought back from a two-goal deficit and might have drawn had Ederson not saved the first of two penalties Napoli were awarded, Sarri felt the opening half hour should represent a warning to the rest of Europe.
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".
