Teams who are in the top six after 17 games are twice as likely to finish there than everyone else. Two thirds of the 60 sides who were in the top six after 17 games over the last 10 seasons went on to finish there at the end of the campaign. Bristol City currently sit in fourth place on 31 points. Teams in fourth after 17 games have only failed to finish in the top six four times over the last 10 seasons.
Garth Crooks appears to have become obsessed with footballers' haircuts this season, mentioning them five times in his team of the week selections. The BBC pundit only mentioned haircuts twice in all of his team of the week selections last season. The first time was in December when he said this of Thibaut Courtois: “In fact he looks rather ungainly - sporting his preppy hairstyle - but who cares?”Remember that “who cares” line, because it becomes clear that he REALLY cares.
While most Hull City fans would probably take mid-table mediocrity right now, if you’re one of those who likes to shoot for the top, the statistics show you may be living in false hope. City vice chairman Ehab Allam may have said promotion back to the Premier League is the aim this season, but if that's to be achieved the Tigers are going to have to do something that's never been done in the last decade.
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".
