West Bromwich Albion are understood to have enquired about Ahmed Hegazi’s Egyptian teammate Ali Gabr. It’s thought Albion will make a low-cost approach for the 29-year-old centre-back, should Jonny Evans move on this month. “On the transfer front we’re making enquiries on a number of players,” Pardew said. “Most of it is being taken by (technical director) Nicky Hammond, that’s his job. “So I don’t always know what he’s doing. “I just want to know what’s coming in the door and going out the door.
Alan Pardew has bolstered his backroom staff with the addition of Neil Cutler as his new goalkeeping coach. Cutler has left Walsall to return to the club where he started out as a trainee goalie in 1993. The 41-year-old from Perton, Staffordshire, replaces Jonathan Gould who left Albion earlier this month to rejoin former Baggies boss Tony Pulis at Middlesbrough. Cutler is a highly regarded coach despite never having made it as a player at the highest level.
Jay Rodriguez has been reported to the FA for allegedly abusing defender Gaetan Bong during West Brom’s 2-0 win over Brighton. The pair exchanged words after they were involved in a flare up during the second half of The Hawthorns clash. The issue has been passed to the FA, although Albion have given their full backing to the former Southampton striker. This is all we know so far:Bong was clearly unhappy on the pitch and made his feelings known to referee Martin Atkinson.
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".
