Steel City AO & Steel Army Holiday Party – 12/9

sa-happy-holidays

Hey gang. It’s getting late in the year which means it’s time for the annual Pittsburgh American Outlaws and Steel Army joint holiday party! It’s been quite the year for both US soccer and the Riverhounds. Come on out and commiserate with both groups as we enjoy some holiday cheer.

This year the party will be moving to the pub at Highmark Stadium. As always we’ll have food, drink specials, and a few raffles. In addition we’ll have the MLS Cup final on the tv’s to yell at. Edit: Nevermind! Apparently MLS Cup is at 4 pm.

“Kick off” is at 7 pm. If you’re planning on coming out we’d appreciate it if you RSVP to one of our Facebook events so we can get a rough head count.



End of the Year Member Survey

Hey Army! It’s that time of the year again. That’s right, the moment you’ve all been dying to hear about. It’s the membership year-end survey! Members, we know it’s not thrilling or sexy but we need to hear your feedback on the past season as well as looking towards 2018. As the group grows we don’t always get a chance to hear from everyone, or over the course of a seven month season we may forget something that was brought up. This is your chance to have the Board’s full undivided attention. Your voice matters! Every year we take the surveys and use them to guide us going forward. We’d really appreciate it if you can take a few minutes and fill out our short survey.

Steel Army members can find the survey link in the Speakeasy section of the website. The…



Offseason Daydreaming: Dark Kits

Yesterday afternoon the Mon Goals boys caused a little bit of a stir when they came across a Riverhounds kit concept-

Could these be legit? Thoughts? pic.twitter.com/aEX7g9VbxQ

Unfortunately for us, as sexy as that kit is, it’s just a fan concept and not something we’ll see. However it did get me thinking about kits, and the more I thought about it the more I kept coming back to one thing I really want to see and think would be a good look for the Hounds – dark kits.

When I say dark kits I don’t mean just straight black like they’ve had before. Black is fine and all, but it’s typically not very exciting. When I say dark kits I mean a dark scheme. Blacks, and more importantly, greys. Black and gold will always be Pittsburgh’s colors, but adding grey…

With the season over and the final whistle sounded, it’s time to announce the results of our Player of the Year polls.

Steel Army Player of the Year – Kevin Kerr

If you were are the match on Saturday you already know this one. If you weren’t it should come as no surprise that team captain Kevin Kerr took home the trophy this year. Despite Kerr being a long time Riverhound this is the first time he’s been our Player of the Year. This season he was the anchor in the midfield with never ending grit and determination. Oh Captain my Captain! Congratulations to Kevin Kerr.

In addition to our overall Player of the Year we have individual position winners as well. We’d like to recognize the following players as our favorites in each area of the field.

Goalkeeper of the Year – Trey Mitchell…
