In 22 days time Newcastle United will take on last season’s runners-up, Tottenham, as they once again enter the Premier League. No surprise that like every other set of supporters, the Newcastle fanbase has been having an endless debate on signings that are needed, then weighing up once each one arrives what their contribution can be to the first team/squad.
In four weeks time the Premier League kicks off for Newcastle United. It is only 14 months since NUFC exited the top tier, to a large extent it will be unknown territory. The team is much changed from who Newcastle were relying on back in 2015/16 and hopefully these next few weeks will see the current team/squad see more significant changes. However, if Newcastle United go into the Premier League with exactly this squad, what would be their chances of finishing above each of the other 19 clubs?
Rafa Benitez may not have spoken about the transfer window this summer but his ongoing presence at the club reassure supporters that this is not the time to panic just yet. The United boss chose not to speak when Florian Lejeune met the assembled media for the first time on Thursday. Fans obviously interested to hear what Rafa will have to say when he allows himself to be questioned about the transfer window and season preparations, whenever that may be.
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".
