Aston Villa have emerged as one of the favourites to sign the ex-Crystal man following his release this summer. They are facing competition from several clubs which include fellow Midlands side West Brom. Here’s all the information you need to know about Villa’s potential new signing. The Welsh international rose through the academy system of his hometown club Cardiff City.
The game which every Blues fan cannot miss out on. Despite the torrid campaign last season under Gianfranco Zola, new manager Redknapp has shown that there is light at the end of the tunnel. He was not able to wave his magic wand in time for his first game in charge against Villa last season but will use last season’s defeat as motivation for the team. Another big fixture which all Blues fans should not be missing.
One of the big game of the season which not only Blues and Villa fans are looking forward but also the rest of the Championship. Despite Harry Redknapp losing his first game against Villa it is guaranteed to be a fiery encounter. Boro ended up being relegated last time out following the departure of Aitor Karanka. Even though they struggled last season in the Premier League, where they finished 19th, people are expecting good things from Garry Monk’s side.
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".
