AMBITIOUS Boro’s early spectacular cash-fuelled rise came to a sticky end in a shameful story of sleazy match-fixing and dark political intrigue. The dynamic new power in the game, this Infant Hercules of a club, had already ruffled feathers in the old elite as they built the best new ground in the country, shattered the world transfer record and repeatedly crossed swords with the FA hierarchy over a cavalier approach to accountancy.
Boro’s failures in front of goal will be creating food for thought at the Riverside as the transfer window edges towards its final two weeks. Certainly Tony Pulis must wonder whether he has any clinical scorers in his squad after Saturday’s blunt effort. The manager has stressed that he does not intend to go banging on the chairman’s door asking for new players before he has shifted a few out. But that’s exactly what I would be doing.
After winning his maiden world title at Lakeside last year, Teessider Glen Durrant was adamant that no matter what he achieved in the game he would never be able to match that darting delight. Twelve months on and after the dust has settled on one of the greatest games to ever grace the Lakeside stage, Duzza, now a two-time world champion, told the Gazette: "I think it feels even better this time around."
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".
