Carlos Carvalhal is quickly understanding the difficulties of managing a team bottom of the Premier League. It is clear for all to see that players are needed to provide an injection into Swansea City's survival fight. The Portuguese knows their position as basement boys is hindering the club's recruitment. "We are trying to do the deals as soon as possible," said Carvalhal .
Former Swansea City boss Garry Monk says he has 'unfinished business' at the Riverside following his sacking as Middlesbrough manager. Monk's six-month tenure on Teesside came to an end last month on the back of a 2-1 win over Carlos Carvalhal's Sheffield Wednesday. The former defender described the sacking as a 'shock', with Boro then sitting ninth in the Championship, just three points off the play-off spots.
It was reported yesterday that the Liberty club's interest in the French forward has been 'rebuffed'. But fresh claims today state Swansea are in 'advanced talks' with the striker. Translated, the above tweet from French journalist Romain Collet-Gauddin reads: "Negotiations advanced between Swansea and Gameiro. Swansea asked 30 M € on the table. Ongoing discussions!" Meanwhile, respected Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio has reported that Andre Ayew is close to making a return to SA1.
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".
