A long week for the Blues ended with defeat at Chelsea. Koeman made changes to the team but his 3-5-2 formation didn’t work and the Blues didn’t really compete with Chelsea until Calvert-Lewin came on in the second half. It is no disgrace to lose to Chelsea and gives us a good idea of what type of player we still need to buy. We need to be patient but we are going in the right direction. Pickford and Keane have settled in really well for us, it is great to have a class goalkeeper.
Barcelona have refused to sanction the release of Thomas Vermaelen to Everton. The Blues had approached the Spanish giants about taking the 31-year-old on loan with a view to making the move permanent. Everton had lined up Vermaelen as a player who would provide the cover at both centre-back and left-back that Ronald Koeman has been searching for.
Ross Barkley performed a dramatic deadline day U-turn on a move to Chelsea after Everton had agreed a £35m deal. And Barkley's sensational change of heart re-opens the possibility of a January move to Tottenham Hotpsur. Some reports claimed Barkley had undergone a medical at Chelsea's Cobham training ground on Thursday night, but suddenly decided against a move to the reigning Premier League champions. However a source close to the 23-year-old denied Barkley had been at Cobham or had a medical.
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".
