In my column last week I tipped him as one of the front-runners. Not because he is a mate, but because he has got all the credentials to be a big success in the role. Keates or Adi Viveash were always the leading candidates for me. The board went for Keates – they even paid compensation – and now I can't wait to see him stamp his authority on this squad. One of the big things he brings to the job is passion.
But I don’t think Walsall have to look too far to find their next manager, writes Chris Marsh. Jon Whitney was finally relieved of his duties this week. It had been a long time coming, but I was still surprised by the timing – I honestly thought he would remain until the end of the season. I’ll talk about Whitney a bit more later. But the most important thing now is that Walsall find the right man to take them forward. And, for me, there are only a handful of candidates who can do the job.
There haven’t been a lot of positives to write about in the 2017/18 campaign so far. But I think it’s important we give the Saddlers some credit because that was a huge victory against MK Dons on Saturday. The chips were down. The pressure was on. And the players ran out knowing that even a draw wouldn’t really be good enough. But they got the victory and that is all that matters. It was an incredible story that it was Julien Ngoy who came off the bench to score the winner.
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".
