Colchester United boss, John McGreal, was very impressed with the brief first appearance of his latest signing, Mikael Mandron, at Braintree Town on Saturday. Centre-forward Mandron, recruited from Wigan on a two-year deal on Friday, played the last 30 minutes of a 3-0 win at Cressing Road. “He brings us something different to what we’ve got, with Denny (Johnstone), and Drey (Wright) and Kurtis (Guthrie). “Mikael has a little more subtlety about the box, and he’s another big lad but mobile as well.
Mikael Mandron, signed from Wigan Athletic yesterday, made his Colchester United debut as a substitute on the hour mark in today’s 3-0 win at Braintree Town. Mandron was unlucky not to mark his first outing in a U’s shirt with a goal, having had one shot deflected over the bar, and one well saved by Iron keeper Nathan McDonald, as well as having appeals for a penalty turned down. “I enjoyed my first appearance for Colchester,” enthused Frenchman Mandron.
A sweet brace from Sammie Szmodics helped Colchester United to a fifth successive victory from five pre-season friendlies, at Braintree Town this afternoon. Szmodics had netted a brace in the U’s second pre-season fixture, at Needham Market, and he repeated the dose with another double at Cressing Road. Livewire attacking midfielder Szmodics broke the deadlock by intercepting a loose ball, which George Craddock failed to control, to slot beyond advancing keeper Nathan McDonald in the 26th minute.
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".
