ADAMA TRAORE has credited work behind the scenes with new manager Tony Pulis for helping kick-start his Middlesbrough career. The Spanish winger has blown hot and cold during his 18-month stint on Teesside. He seemed to lose his way completely under the tutelage of Garry Monk. But Traore, who capped a man-of-the-match display with a first Boro goal against QPR, believes Pulis can help him earn a Premier League return.
“EXHAUSTING, frustrating and a complete waste of time.” Mike Ashley’s pithy comment might have been directed at Amanda Staveley last week after talks about a potential takeover broke down, but if he does not live up to his promises in the next nine days, the Newcastle owner could find his words thrown back in his face. Unwittingly, Ashley might well have provided the perfect summation of Newcastle’s season.
RAFAEL BENITEZ has provided Mike Ashley with a list of attacking targets as he admits this month’s transfer business has the potential to make or break Newcastle United’s season. Benitez, who is also targeting a goalkeeper, full-back and potentially a new midfielder, watched his side fall to within a point of the relegation zone as they suffered a 3-1 defeat at runaway league leaders Manchester City on Saturday, before Southampton claimed a 1-1 draw with Tottenham yesterday.
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".
