Even as he was revelling in the moment his new West Ham side executed his game plan almost flawlessly to achieve their first away win of the season, David Moyes could hear the chants rising from the home end and the dark days of his own career were suddenly in his thoughts. Mark Hughes guided Stoke to their highest Premier League finish in each of his first three seasons as manager but his team are struggling now and the tide of popularity has turned in a way that Moyes knows only too well.
Stoke’s troubles went from bad to worse in a match delayed for an hour by an electrical failure, leaving manager Mark Hughes probably wishing it had not gone ahead at all. As if a contentious first-half penalty was not enough for the Welshman fighting for his job as his side’s season falls apart, his former star Marko Arnautovic, who forced a summer move to West Ham by asking for a transfer, rubbed salt in the wounds by putting the result beyond Stoke with a quarter of an hour remaining.
Struggling Sunderland ended the winning streak of Championship leaders Wolves despite playing the last 35 minutes with 10 men after Lee Cattermole was sent off. Cattermole was shown the ninth red card of his career – albeit the first for four years – after picking up a second yellow just 54 seconds after the first.
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".
