Meet the man who helped fuel Dublin’s three-in-a-row heroes to glory last Sunday. Performance nutritionist Daniel Davey works with Jim Gavin’s side - and his job last week was to make sure the tanks were full going into an energy-sapping Croke Park decider with Mayo. That meant each player was gulping down a whopping 3,500-4,000 calories per day towards the end of last week over eight-to-10 daily meals and snacks.
Martin O'Neill has dropped Glenn Whelan and Harry Arter from his side to face Serbia at the Aviva Stadium tonight. The two new faces from last weekend's disappointing 1-1 draw with Georgia are David Meyler and Wes Hoolahan - with the inclusion of the latter set to delight fans and Irish Daily Star columnist Eamon Dunphy. Ireland are in desperate need of a creative spark in this evening's game, which O'Neill has conceded is must-win as far as Ireland's World Cup prospects are concerned.
On the eve of Dundalk's home game against Zenit St Petersburg last year, Stephen Kenny fielded the usual questions in a David-versus-Goliath situation. How would his Lilywhites side cope with the mighty Russians? Would they set out to contain? Fear, fear, fear. Contrast that to the questions Kenny asked of his players, which were all intended to illicit positive answers, to generate a positive mindset: "How can we play to create chances? What can we do tactically to ask questions of them?
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".
