Ronald Koeman said after the Man Utd game that expecting Everton to break into the top 4 at this stage is an unrealistic target. That isn’t what anybody wants to hear but it is the ugly truth. Nobody can overhaul the Premier League establishment after just 12 months of proper investment. This summer was a transformative one at the club. The majority of the players brought in were under the age of 24 and now make up the core of a new squad.
Everton will travel to Chelsea in the League Cup fourth round. The Blues saw off Sunderland 3-0 in their third round tie at Goodison Park on Wednesday night. And their reward is a testing trip to Stamford Bridge to face the Premier League champions. Antonio Conte's side beat Nottingham Forest 5-1 to book their place in the next round, and Ronald Koeman will expect a better showing from his team after their 2-0 surrender in West London last month.
It was a day Tom Brewitt knew was coming, but that didn't make it any easier when it did. Leaving any job can be hard, but walking out on the club you've supported all your life, the one you've represented with distinction for 10 years? Heavy. Still, sometimes the hardest decision is also the right one. The leaving of Liverpool had to happen. "I knew I had to do it," Brewitt reflects in this special Next Generation podcast for Anfield Extra.
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".
