It is almost impossible to fathom that there was a time where a significant number of Welsh football fans were calling for manager Chris Coleman to be sacked. After leading Wales to the semi-finals of Euro 2016, Coleman's place in history and status as a national treasure is assured, but it was almost so different. After Wales' last visit to Serbia in September 2012 - which resulted in a humiliating 6-1 defeat - many, possibly most Wales fans, were calling for him to resign.
It took Newport County 25-years to go from extinction to the Football League, but it took Mark O'Brien just one swing of a right boot to transform their future. Seemingly dead and buried when former player and local lad Mike Flynn took charge with 12 games remaining this term, 11 points adrift of safety and once again at their lowest ebb, County had been written off.
Welsh boxer Robbie Turley has won a Commonwealth title five years after he was told to retire. Turley, 30, won the vacant Commonwealth bantamweight title via a ninth-round stoppage of Bobby Jenkinson in Newport. He missed almost two years after his licence was withdrawn in 2012 due to the results of a brain scan. His licence was renewed, however, after a lengthy battle involving lawyers and neurosurgeons, who cleared him for a return to the ring.
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".
