The summer transfer window is fast upon us as Reading FC prepare for a busy summer to build on the success the club has seen over the past year. Royals may have missed out on the Premier League, but Jaap Stam, technical director Brian Tevreden and the club's owners will be using the summer to work towards taking the club to the next level.
Overseas fans will be able to watch Reading FC games next season through a new subscription service. iFollow is a new platform provided by the English Football League to allow fans based outside the UK and Ireland to stream their chosen team's matches live during the regular season. The service will cost the equivalent of £110 for the season, giving overseas Royals fans access to watch every match of the 2017/18 campaign, unless it is has been selected by the EFL's overseas broadcast partners.
Reading FC co-chairman Sir John Madejski says he expects Jaap Stam to remain as Royals manager next season. The Royals boss led the club to the Championship play-off final after a third-placed finish in his first season at the club. Sir John says he believes it would take a big offer to tempt the Dutchman, who was linked with Premier League clubs earlier this season due to his achievements this term, away from Reading.
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".
