Ross Barkley enjoyed his first taste of Chelsea action on Thursday, scoring twice in a behind-closed-doors friendly against QPR. The £15million arrival from Everton helped himself to a double in a 3-2 win at Chelsea’s Surrey training ground despite, understandably, looking short of match fitness. England international Barkley has not featured at all for club or country this season but is fit again after undergoing surgery on his leg muscle before his January 5 move to Stamford Bridge.
Rising West Brom star Tyler Roberts is at the centre of a transfer tug-of-war. Leeds have had a £4million package rejected for the 19-year-old forward who is out of contract in the summer. Scottish giants Rangers and French outfit Marseille are also trying to land the teenager who is out of contract in the summer. Roberts is able to sign a contract with both those non-English clubs immediately but Leeds want him to help maintain their promotion hopes.
Chelsea have made contact with Stoke over the possibility of signing Peter Crouch. As reported by Mirror Football on Thursday, the Blues have identified the 36-year-old former England striker as an alternative to Andy Carroll who has been struck down by injury. Antonio Conte wants to replace Michy Batshuayi and is looking for a target man to provide competition for out-of-form Alvaro Morata.
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".
