Now that Mr. Rogers’ Friendly Skies have taken to the air and crashed “gracefully” into the Allegheny, it’s time to get down to business. A shockingly bad Richmond Kickers come to town tonight for a must win game for the Hounds. The Hounds are only one point out of the playoffs, but as the season comes into it’s final stretch the margin of error is getting ever smaller. The team needs to stop treading water like they have over the last month and get some results. Richmond is the perfect opportunity. Not only are they a bottom of the table…



Game 6 Recap: Hhhmmm…

I’m going to be upfront and say I didn’t watch this match, and I don’t expect to have the time to watch the replay. From the sounds of it the game was a soggy affair, and despite the final score the Hounds continued to play decent. So with that said I’m not going to comment on the match in particular. Instead I want to touch on some broader thoughts.

If you were to chart out my confidence and happiness this season it’s been on a downward trend since the opener. Six games in and the Hounds are sinking down the standings with a 1-3-2 record. 5 points in six games. While the team started better this year, at this point things aren’t looking that much different than the recent bad seasons. After six games played in 2014 and 2016 the Hounds…



Know Your Enemy: Richmond Kickers (1-3-0, 14th East)

Richmond Kickers v Aromas Cafe FC 2nd Round US Open Cup

The Hounds are on the road for the third Saturday in a row as they travel south again to Richmond to face the Kickers.

The Kickers are struggling at 1-3-0, following three consecutive 1 nil losses to NYRB, Louisville and Ottawa following Richmond’s opening night win over Harrisburg.

They currently sit in 14th place in the East and only Charlotte sit below them in the standings with fewer points. The loss last Saturday to Ottawa was especially brutal for Kickers supporters as they controlled the majority of the match but could not find the back of the net.  A frustrating home performance is something we all can relate to.

Making it worse was the goal they conceded for the winner, a half field effort from Steeven Dos Santos, catching the Kickers keepers sleeping a little…

Are the Pittsburgh Riverhounds a good team? It is a question no one may be able to answer yet. We’ve seen the good, the bad, and a little of the stuff in between, so we sit here on this fence about how realistically optimistic we should feel. With all that said, the Hounds’ opponent today, is bad. Richmond has one win against three losses. They’ve been kept off the score sheet in three of those matches, and have a single goal in…
