THERE are times in football where you have to hold your hands up and admit you stole it. Saturday’s win over Curzon Ashton was one of those times. On their two previous trips to face us on our home turf they have humiliated us. On both occasions they gave us a lesson on how to play and so regardless of how the victory came, we owed them one. For the majority of the game, it felt like the weather was dictating our performance. The day was a damp squib and our performance likewise.
WITH our form having turned the corner, a week off was probably the last thing that Tommy Wright and the players would have wanted. Our trip to Tamworth was looking quite favourable with the home side’s recent form being pretty dire while we’ve been flying of late. Sadly, even with an all-weather pitch at the disposal of the Staffordshire side, the weather got the better of the fixture as it did with all the games in the National League North on Saturday.
FIVE weeks ago, we were preparing to head to Leamington following a couple of games where we had cheaply thrown the lead away to only get draws. It felt like our season was at a pivotal point. The pressure on the players and the management was massive. If we had lost, I think most fans including myself would have found it hard to see a way out of the relegation mire. As it was, we won with an injury time goal from Stephen Thompson. Those precious three points gave us hope.
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".
