Robbie Cornthwaite pauses. The tall, confident A-League defender takes a tissue and composes himself again. He is talking about a wrenching memory. Bravely, the Western Sydney Wanderers star is opening up, baring his rawest pain as he thinks back to March 2016, when his wife, Nel, delivered their daughter, Minnie, at 22 weeks into her pregnancy, while they were in Malaysia where he was playing club football. Fortunately, injury had ruled him out of an AFC Cup trip to Bangladesh that weekend.
Ernie Merrick is back in the coaching hot seat, tasked with turning perennial under achievers Newcastle Jets into a finals contender once again - with pre-season starting this week. Five months out from the game has re-charged Merrick, who speaks with enthusiasm and genuine excitement not just about tackling the huge task at hand, but trying to fulfil the potential that is untapped at Hunter Stadium. And it was an old sparring partner from the competition’s early days that helped get him there.
At the end of an exhausting month of action filled with debate and introspection from the football public, Ange Postecoglou’s side peaked in their fifth game since June 8 with a performance that had World No.4 Chile fighting hard to find answers to stop the green and gold snaring the two-goal win that seemed so unlikely pre-game, but was within touching distance until Martin Rodriguez’s equaliser in the 1-1 draw in Moscow. The performance embodied everything good about this Socceroos crop.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
