Mile Jedinak says he is fully focused on Aston Villa following his hat-trick in Australia's 3-1 win over Honduras that guaranteed their qualification for next year's World Cup. The Socceroos skipper has made just three appearances in the Championship so far this season. With Russia now on the horizon, he is hoping he can take some momentum from his play-off performance back to Villa Park.
Sitting drinking my morning coffee this morning, I was surprised when I turned to the back pages of the Herald Sun to see the Socceroos featured prominently, even equipped with its very own full-page spread. Usually football news is shuffled down near the results section, but on this day, it held its place right besides the Ashes as the most important sports news in Australia.
Peter Reid says his former club Sunderland haven't contact him about the vacant managerial post. But the former Everton midfielder refused to categorically rule out a return to Wearside and insists the club must make a decision as soon as possible. After just one win in his first 15 matches, the Black Cats fired Simon Grayson after their 3-3 draw with Bolton at the end of October. A number of former players have backed Reid, 61, to take over the club he managed from 1995 to 2002.
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".
