Using StrataBet data, BetStars have ranked each manager in the Premier League based on the percentage of substitutions made during games which are considered attacking. BetStars wanted to look at how ambitious managers are with their substitutions, so they constructed an algorithm to grade every in-game change by how attacking – or defensive – it was, based on the position and attacking contribution of the two players involved plus the scoreline and timing.
Ashley Barnes wants to score as many goals as he can - but the Clarets striker once resented the sight of the ball hitting the back of the net. That's because the 28-year-old played as a goalkeeper through most of his teenage years, until former Paulton Rovers boss Andrew Jones intervened.
Midfielder Steven Defour declared that it would be such a waste if the Clarets were to blow their positive start to the Premier League campaign. Despite picking up just three points from their last six games Burnley remain seventh in the top flight, five points short of Arsenal in sixth and seven points clear of Everton in ninth. The Belgium international doesn’t want to see the season fizzle out and is determined to get the club back to winning ways as soon as possible.
Here's a stat. The Clarets are now without a win in all 49 Premier League games under Sean Dyche when they have conceded first. And they've lost 40 of those matches, including yesterday's defeat to Palace. #DownAndOut
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".
