Eight days until the January transfer window SLAMS shut. Everton, surely, have business still to do? They've been busier than most, spending close to £50m on bringing in Cenk Tosun and Theo Walcott. But with holes all over the squad – most notably at left back – and the horrendous injury to James McCarthy, it would be no surprise if Sam Allardyce brought in at least one more new face between now and January 31. It can be a tricky market, January, but Everton have tended to get involved regularly.
So here we are; the morning after the night before? A morning headache for Liverpool, after their horror show in South Wales. Jurgen Klopp's side saw their unbeaten run go up in smoke at Swansea, the Premier League's bottom club. Their worst performance of the season? It was certainly up there. Alfie Mawson's first-half strike settled matters at the Liberty Stadium, although quite how Roberto Firmino (or Adam Lallana) didn't rescue a point for the Reds in stoppage time remains a mystery.
Liverpool and Everton are set to go head to head for the second time this month - this time in the transfer market. The Mirror report that they are both competing to sign Ezri Konsa, one of the country's brightest young defensive talents. Konsa, 20, plays for Charlton Athletic in League One, and has been attracting the attention of a host of top clubs with his progress. The Addicks are said to have placed a £5m price tag on his head, and both Liverpool and Everton are said to be leading the race.
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".
