Bristol City finish off their pre-season on Friday night as they return to Ashton Gate for the first time in 2017-18. FC Twente are the opposition - with the former Eredivisie champions a fair step up in quality from the Robins' other opponents across the summer so far. Dutch football writer Michael Statham, from the football-oranje.com website has kindly given us the background on the visitors from the Dutch perspective.
Bristol City have been linked with a move for Liverpool's Ryan Kent along with a number of Championship sides. A loan could well be on the cards for whoever can tie up a deal for the technically excellent winger. With Lee Johnson still on the lookout for a couple of players - including an attacking midfielder - the Robins are a good match for Kent. Here's what the head coach told us (see the video above instead if you prefer) when Kent came to Ashton Gate at the end of last season.
Bristol City are still looking for a couple of players to complete their squad for the 2017-18 season. Head coach Lee Johnson said on Tuesday evening that there are bids on the table for several players. The Bristol Post understands that one player interesting the club is Sweden U21 international Niclas Eliasson. However, he might not be the only option for reinforcing the squad's attacking midfield options.
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".
