New Wales boss Ryan Giggs says he has been unfairly criticised by fans, and a desire to reach a major tournament with the country "burns" inside him. Giggs, 44, played 64 times for Wales between 1991 and 2007 but, despite a trophy-laden club career, did not appear at a major international finals. He was criticised for regularly pulling out of squads, and especially for missing friendly matches. "I think it is a bit unfair, but football is about opinions," he said.
Michael Flynn is dreaming of a trip to Anfield in the fourth round of the FA Cup after Newport County stunned Leeds. Gaetano Berardi's deflected opener put Leeds ahead, but Shawn McCoulsky's 89th minute header and Conor Shaughnessy's own goal put Newport into round four for the first time since 1978-79. "I would love Liverpool at Anfield; that would be the dream for me being a Liverpool fan," said manager Flynn. The draw takes place at 19:00 GMT on Monday, 8 January.
A few months in football can feel like years and no club better embodies that than Newport County. Turn the clock back to April and the Exiles seemed doomed to League Two relegation, with sliding out of the Football League meaning the club "would have probably gone," according to their saviour, boss Michael Flynn. After rescuing themselves in extraordinary circumstances, the Exiles are now thriving and dreaming of an FA Cup upset against Leeds United.
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".
