Former Newcastle player Ma Leilei (L), former Wester Sydney player Shinji Shini Ono (C) and former Melbourne Victory player Sutee Suksomkit (R) (Getty Images)At some point the Australian football industry will have to get over itself and realise that the future, whether we like it or not, is Asia. No more lip service. No more mission statements. No more positive sentiments. No more “engagement”. No, it’s time for actual engagement.
Former Argentina captain Javier Zanetti has hailed Marcelo Bielsa as “just the right person” to take the Socceroos to the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Speaking to The World Game, Zanetti – who spent six years with Bielsa between 1998 and 2004 when the latter was coaching the national team – said there was no better fit for a nation looking to shape its football ideology.
Former Socceroos striker David Zdrilic believes the FFA must pull out all stops to sign Red Bull Leipzig sporting director Ralf Rangnick as manager, describing it as a “once-in-a-generation opportunity”. Rangnick, 59, has been linked with the top job alongside a slew of candidates including Marcelo Bielsa, Luiz Felipe Scolari, Graham Arnold and Tony Popovic.
@adamOsaussies Not sure their young players would get much game time in higher leagues to be honest. Possibly have a better chance here + covering expenses would be handy for clubs.
Worth exploring in any case.
Wrote last week about how the Saudi FA was preparing to pay to send players abroad. Confirmed today they’ll send all their best players to Europe pre-WC.
But they also have a long-term strategy to send young players abroad for OS experience. Great opportunity for A-League clubs. https://twitter.com/ahdaafme/status/922004071179083776
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".
