Stokes is regarded as our best player, someone who can win a Test on his own following a spell of magic with either bat or ball. The all rounder won’t be on the plane though, as he awaits the police investigation into a brawl outside a Bristol nightclub last month. But all is not lost, because investing so much hope and faith in a cricketing trailblazer with red hair might not be such a foolish thing to do after all. The Yorkshire batsman has much in common with Stokes.
The embattled duo have been left clinging to their jobs - along with technical director Dan Ashworth - following a humiliating appearance in front of MPs this week. But chairman Clarke and chief executive Glenn have no intention of resigning and senior FA board and council members will have to sack them if it’s decided a change is needed. Both Clarke and Glenn earn in excess of £500,000-a-year and would be owed significant sums of compensation if sacked.
Benfica boss Rui Vitoria insists Victor Lindelof will not be a dud at Manchester UnitedLindelof left the Portuguese Giants to join United last summer in a £30.75m deal. The centre back was expected to go on and establish himself at the heart of Jose Mourinho's defence. But the Swedish international has endured a difficult start to life at United and struggled to make an impact.
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".
