Sunderland have given themselves some breathing space in the search for a new striker, but this week could be pivotal for the club's survival hopes. We'll bring you all the latest news on the club's search for a striker. Scroll down and refresh for updates on transfer activity at the Stadium of Light.
Have your sayLee Cattermole's performance in the 1-0 win over Hull City had Sunderland fans purring. The midfielder's return to the starting line-up alongside youngster Ethan Robson gave the Black Cats some much-needed bite and presence in the midfield. Read Phil Smith's player ratings hereThe long-serving skipper completed 90 minutes despite not being at full fitness as Sunderland gained a crucial three points.
A hard-working, battling performance from the Black Cats saw youngster Joel Asoro grab his first goal for the club to give supporters hope they can avoid the drop. Chris Coleman played a young side including Ethan Robson and a strike pairing of Asoro and Josh Maja, and they repaid their boss in style. It left Sunderland fans delighted. Here's a selection of their comments from Twitter. @guysienet: Nothing you can say but congratulations to the Lads today. #SAFC.
@JeebazSandals@wdt0_0 Ultimately, Bain has been told to cut costs and run club on a shoestring by Short. That is the reality. He made errors over manager hunt in summer but think everyone can agree he pulled off a coup by getting Coleman. SAFC is in mess and that's down to more than just Bain
@JeebazSandals@wdt0_0 Vaughan and McGeady cost £750k. I still don't think that's bad business when club was working on such tight budget. Grayson wanted them, Bain got them for decent fees. McGeady was v.good til Grayson got sacked. It happens that new managers don't always like old one's players
@JeebazSandals@wdt0_0 Nobody wanted Lens on a permanent deal. Best they could get was a loan fee with option to buy. Borini is same. Wages #safc pay all 4 of those players prohibitive to moves abroad. As I say, some mistakes made but some good deals also
@wdt0_0@JeebazSandals This. Bain has made mistakes but to put everything at his door is ridiculous. When you've got £1.5m to spend and need to bring in 10 players no manager or chief exec is going to get every transfer right
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".
