Callum O’Hare is starting to make a name for himself at Aston Villa and is aiming to become the latest star from Solihull to make the step up. The 19-year-old is in good company as Jack Grealish, Andre Green and Gary Gardner have all graduated from the Bodymoor Heath Academy in recent years to keep the Solihull flag flying high. And this season is expected to be a important one for O’Hare who is hoping for his big breakthrough.
Aston Villa will travel to Duisburg tomorrow morning for the Cup of Traditions. Steve Bruce’s troops are making the short trip from their training camp here in Germany to the MSV Arena where they face the hosts in the opening fixture. The claret and blues will play two 45-minute games starting with their first encounter against MSV Duisburg at 12noon. If Villa see off the home side they will line up against the winners of Hertha Berlin vs Malaga (1pm) in the final at 3pm.
Ross McCormack, Gary Gardner, Aaron Tshibola and Tommy Elphick have all stayed at home as Aston Villa prepare for their final pre-season fixtures on the road this summer. Boss Steve Bruce is narrowing down his squad ahead of the Championship season and the omissions from the group that has travelled to Germany raises further questions over some of the fringe players’ future. Aly Cissokho and Jordan Veretout are also missing but both players are close to finalising moves away.
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".
