Alan Pardew has warned the clock is ticking if West Brom are going to accept any bids for Jonny Evans . Manchester City are interested in the Northern Ireland defender as Pep Guardiola looks for more defensive cover over the second half of the season. But having run out of time to sign the player in summer, the Blues may have to get a move on to land Evans in this transfer window.
Pep Guardiola could finally make a decision more unpopular than getting rid of Joe Hart by the time this transfer window is over. Aymeric Laporte turned the club down in 2016, the cover sought last January never materialised and summer moves were kiboshed when Eliaquim Mangala decided against leaving. Despite the pursuit of a defender entering a fourth window, some City fans would rather endure another fruitless period than see Jonny Evans wearing Blue.
Manchester City are back at it ahead of their Premier League game with Newcastle. The Blues are in action at on Saturday evening at the Etihad and Pep Guardiola will be looking for a reaction from his players after seeing their domestic unbeaten run end at Anfield last weekend. Vincent Kompany and David Silva were among the Blues training ahead of the match and the coach will hope that he is able to count on both following their recent absences.
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".
