Two moments in the 1-0 defeat to Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday seemingly condemned Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer to the sack. But Lee Chung-yong's "no-look" back-pass, which set up Chris Wood's winner, and Scott Dann's inexplicable late miss were merely straws to break the camel's back. Four defeats in four games, with no goals scored -- the worst start to a top-flight season in 93 years -- spoke for itself.
Ask people working in football for their opinion of Stoke City manager -- and former Manchester United striker -- Mark Hughes and you tend to get a positive response. Those who know him talk of a decent man, who is straight to deal with. Few would have selected him from the United dressing room of the late 1980s and early 1990s to be its most successful manager, but he's managed in the top flight for far longer than his teammates.
Stoke City boss Mark Hughes said Jose Mourinho's comments about his side's style of play after the 2-2 home draw with Manchester United on Saturday were an "easy swipe." It was the first time United had failed to win in the Premier League so far, and Old Trafford manager Mourinho did not shake hands with Hughes after the match. Mourinho later said it had been the kind of game in which the absent Marouane Fellaini's physicality was needed -- a suggestion that rankled with Hughes.
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
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".
