Thibaut Courtois has admitted he is no closer to signing a new Chelsea contract but hopes talks will resume near the end of the season. The Belgium keeper's current deal has less than two years left to run and he remains a target for Real Madrid. Courtois is believed to be paid £100,000-a-week, but is looking to double his money in order to get the same salary as Manchester United's David de Gea.
Eden Hazard believes he is reaping the benefits of being forced to take a summer break to recover from an ankle injury. Hazard suffered a fractured ankle in June, which meant he missed Chelsea’s pre-season and did not start his first match for the club until September. The Belgium international is beginning to return to his best level, with his brace in the 4-0 win over West Brom on Saturday taking his tally to five goals from his last six appearances for the Blues.
Ruth Davidson is to argue that it does not matter who wins the Scottish Labour leadership contest on Saturday because the party is “holed below the waterline.” Speaking as Anas Sarwar or Richard Leonard is declared the victor, following a lengthy and bitter contest, Ms Davidson is expected to say that voters are sick of Labour’s “endless fighting.” The Scottish Tory leader will argue that Labour is “marooned on the rocks” regardless of who becomes its ninth leader since devolution and...
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".
