One of the big stories of this Premier League season has been the turnaround at Crystal Palace under Roy Hodgson who took over in September. Hodgson was named manager just four games into the season, and while his impact wasn’t immediate, by late November the results were starting to show. After starting the season with seven straight losses, Palace has now climbed to 12th place, while suffering only one league defeat in the team’s last 12 league games.
Manchester City is enjoying a dominant Premier League campaign, and on Sunday will look to overpower fourth-place Liverpool. It’s bad timing for the Reds, who have just sold Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for a staggering $240 million. It remains to be seen if Liverpool can put that money to good use before the January transfer window closes. While City is a team loaded with talent, one player who has really been exceeding expectations is 23-year-old winger Raheem Sterling.
The FA Cup is in full swing this weekend as the third round kicks off today. Starting things off is a Merseyside derby, with Liverpool hosting Everton. The struggling Toffees have just announced the signing of Turkish striker Cenk Tosun and are hoping the Besiktas’ top scorer will be available today. Unfortunately, not a single non-league side has made it to the third round. It’s the first time that’s happened in 67 years.
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".
