Manager Carlos Carvalhal believes Swansea City are growing in confidence after five games under his guidance. The Swans beat Championship leaders Wolves 2-1 in Wednesday's FA third-round replay, which Carvalhal rated as the best display of his reign. Although the Welsh side are still bottom of the Premier League, Carvalhal is encouraged by their improvement since his appointment in December after the sacking of Paul Clement. "The team are progressing," he said.
New Wales manager Ryan Giggs insists he will convince fans sceptical of his appointment with success on the field. The Manchester United great, who has yet to decide on his backroom staff, was named as Chris Coleman's successor on Monday. Some supporters questioned Giggs' commitment as a Wales player but he is determined to win them over. "I'll do that by winning games. As long as I'm winning games those questions won't come up," he said.
Manager Neil Warnock was relieved after Cardiff City side ended a four-match losing run during which he says they were the "worst team in the league". The Bluebirds halted that sequence with Saturday's 4-0 thrashing of Sunderland. Having seen their promotion push falter during their fallow period, Cardiff are now back up to second in the Championship table. "We looked lethargic over Christmas and it's nice to get back to winning ways," said Warnock.
No fish puns but a house analogy from Carlos Carvalhal to describe Swansea protecting their 2-1 lead against Wolves:
“It was time to close the door, time to close the window, time to make the house very dark."
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".
