It was hard to believe that the world famous Blackpool pleasure beach entertainment park was only just up the road as there was very little enjoyment on offer at a cold and windy Bloomfield Road. The positive for Bristol Rovers is that we have drawn our last three away games and together win that fine home win over Portsmouth it could be interpreted as promotion form. However despite that little run we find ourselves only four points off a relegation position although there is no need to panic.
After waiting so long for that first draw it was almost inevitable that we would get another one straight away. Following poor defeats against Gillingham and Doncaster I would have settled for two draws away from home and both turned out to be hard earned and deserved points. Adam Smith had one of his best games since joining Rovers as we drew at Walsall, a place where we never seem to do well. Boundary Park has also proved to be a not very happy hunting ground for us so it was another good result.
Little did we know that when Ellis Harrison missed our best chance after just 15 seconds that it was the turning point of the game and it would be downhill all the way from there. Bristol Rovers were so bad that you have to wonder if they failed to get an invite to Darrell Clarke’s 40th birthday celebrations which must have been cancelled anyway after such a very poor performance.
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".
