IT’S hard to recall too many Colchester United performances this season as insipid as the one they produced at struggling Crewe Alexandra. The U’s just failed to get going at Gresty Road against a side previously without a win since New Year's Day and ultimately paid the price, after Shaun Miller pounced to score Alex’s winner on the hour mark.
Pulled off a fine first-half save to deny Nolan and had no chance with Alex’s winner. U’s man of the match. Produced a strong defensive display and got forward effectively. U’s captain read the game well and was unlucky not to score with header late on. Produced another solid performance and dealt well with Alex’s front line. Enjoyed his tussle with Bakayogo on his return to the side and worked hard. Was industrious in the first half before fading in the second half and being replaced.
Colchester United head coach John McGreal admits his side produced a ‘flat performance’ in losing 1-0 to struggling Crewe Alexandra this afternoon. Shaun Miller’s second-half strike proved the difference between the two sides at Gresty Road, in a match where the U’s struggled to create opportunities throughout. Colchester remain three points off the play-off places in League Two but boss McGreal conceded it was a poor display from his side.
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".
