It’s that kind of season. Just when everything seems to be miserable, and the fans’ anger is mounting, along comes a victory to lighten the mood. At least temporarily, writes Northstander Terry Hunt. Going into the Leeds game, negativity was everywhere. Poor form, a mounting injury list, a new shirt sponsor which isn’t universally popular among supporters, and the manager talking in generally downbeat fashion about the transfer window. Oh, woe was us.
Northstander Terry Hunt looks back on the Derby defeat, but hopes the FA Cup may, for once in a long time, offer Town fans hopeThat well-known saying crossed my mind an awful lot on Saturday afternoon as we were painfully reminded of the gulf in quality between Town and the best teams in the division. Derby could and should have been three or four up at half-time. It was only some wasteful finishing which prevented the game being over as a contest. We were left chasing shadows.
Marcus Evans has now been the owner of Ipswich Town Football Club for ten years. Lifelong fan TERRY HUNT assesses the first decade of the Evans era. In 2007-08, the season when mega-wealthy businessman Marcus Evans bought Ipswich Town, the team finished eighth in the Championship. Fast forward through the first ten years of the Evans era to the present day, and take a look at the league table. Lo and behold, you will find Town in exactly the same league position – eighth in the Championship.
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".
