Sunderland have been handed an early taste of the cramped Championship fixture schedule with the Black Cats due to play a Carabao Cup tie at Bury less than 48 hours before they face Norwich City at Carrow Road in the league. The Black Cats’ first two games of the season will be screened live with the Championship opener against Derby County and the game at Bury both picked for TV coverage.
Sunderland are likely to sell Fabio Borini this summer, according to his agent and Black Cats former director of football Roberto De Fanti. Italian striker Borini is one of several players who have been tipped to leave Wearside following relegation and De Fanti’s comments indicate that he is actively searching for a new club for his client with Scottish champions Celtic and Serie A side Lazio among those said to be interested.
Sunderland face a voyage into uncharted territory next season when they face Burton Albion for the first time in any competition - but there will be a retro feel about the Black Cats’ trip to East Staffordshire. The Brewers, managed by Nigel Clough, only joined the Football League in 2009 following seven seasons in the Conference, and before that they played in the Northern Premier League and the Southern League Premier Division.
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".
