It might be a bit early to be looking at other results but that won’t stop Boro fans scanning the scores nervously and starting to view Birmingham as a ‘must win’ match. Last night’s results were not kind. Two rival play-off pretenders - Derby and Nottingham Forest - won to claw above Boro and push Garry Monk’s team down to eighth. The Rams eased to a 2-0 win over QPR to squeeze into sixth place and Forest eeked to a 1-0 win over Norwich and nudged one point and one place above Boro.
I’m conflicted. Adama Traore may be back in the mix against Birmingham and I really don’t know if that is a good thing or a bad thing. He could put in a bamboozling display of fast-forward flashing feet, throw up cartoon dust in the wake of his Roadrunner surges past shell-shocked defenders and zip teasing crosses across the box. He could. You know he has the ability. We’ve seen it being unleashed. Equally he could be a passenger. Or worse, a liability.
Boro eased to a convincing 2-0 win over basement battlers Birmingham with some confident displays in every department. Some fluid football created a flurry of good chances and they could easily have scored two or three more goals on the night. It was a steady and solid team display that at times threatened to spark into a cavalier swagger and there were some excellent individual displays.
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".
