Know Your Enemy: Charlotte

Opponent: Charlotte Independence

Record: 7-6-4 (7th in East)

The Charlotte Independence are currently in a three game winless streak, losing the last two games at home to Wilmington and the Red Bulls II. Well traveling to Highmark Stadium should be the perfect remedy of the Independence to break their recent run of bad form.

The Independence are 7-6-4, sitting in the bottom playoff places of the Eastern Conference, visiting Pittsburgh before going to Richmond on Wednesday. Charlotte has won only two of their last nine games since staring 5-2, once sitting near the the top of the East.

In a season that has had some strange event s for the Hounds, the Independence bowed out of the US Open Cup in a very odd way, losing 5-0 in extra time to their NASL neighbors the Carolina Railhawks.

Charlotte dont seem to have any standout players and get…



Enemy Update: Richmond

Opponent: Richmond Kickers

Record: 6-6-5 (8th in East, 24 pts)

The Hounds could not be going in to a more important stretch as they welcome Richmond to the Highmark Stadium at 7PM tonight. This rare Thursday evening match starts a quick three game home stand for Pittsburgh and would appear to be the last shot of salvaging this turd of a season.

We have played 15 league games and have fifteen left to play and things could not really look grimmer at the halfway point of the season. Though, if the boys can pull off a nice winning streak on this home stand, we could be in business and hanging around just outside the playoff positions.  It would give them 19 points and depending on other results would put them around 10th.  Not great, but not terrible considering how the season has gone.

This is much easier…
