It is arguably the most important period at Newcastle United for a decade – and we want to hear how you feel about the state of the club as they head into a crucial 2018. These are critical days for United. Off-the-field the club is in the middle of a protracted takeover saga and it looks almost certain that the ownership will change at some point in the next 12 months – and we want to hear what you think of Mike Ashley, Amanda Staveley and what the priorities would be for any new owner.
Amanda Staveley may want to give some serious thought to re-instating the relegation clause that so irked Mike Ashley in their initial round of takeover talks. The on-off saga which has destablised what is turning into a wretched return to the Premier League is – hopefully – heading towards a more positive conclusion sometime in 2018. If only we could say the same about the team. The side assembled in a summer of discontent at St James’ Park is unravelling.
For Newcastle United, one win will change everything. That is the nature of the Premier League table in 2016/17 – a barmy reflection of a division where there is very little between any of the teams below 11th and, a cynic might say, very little in terms of quality down there either. A long shadow is being cast over Newcastle’s season by their horrendous form but the fact is they are not far away from getting moving again. Even if they lose their next three, they will not be out of touch.
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".
