Under-appreciated, under the radar but still getting where no one ever expected them to be. For Saints, that was fourth in the league – again – and qualifying for Europe. Again. For their centre-half – the only outfield player in the entire league to have started every game – it was a place in the SPFL’s official Premiership Team of the Year. A team, he humbly believes, whose every position should have gone to a player in green and white hoops.
Scotland’s women’s team are heading towards the Euros in turmoil after infuriating the SFA with a demand to be paid to play for their country. Anna Signeul’s squad are in the middle of a major stand-off with the SFA a month ahead of their first-ever appearance at a major finals. They have withdrawn all co-operation, other than playing, and are fighting for parity with Gordon Strachan’s men’s team when it comes to rewards.
Charlie Adam has spent his career looking up to the guy he believes is the best Scottish midfielder of his generation. But that doesn’t mean he’s going to roll over and hand Darren Fletcher his Stoke shirt without a fight. The Potters playmaker was thrilled to hear the man he shared the stage with for his country is now alongside him at his club after Fletcher’s free-agent summer switch from West Brom. And that’s despite the threat to his own appearance stats.
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".
