MLS Ironman Robles Has His Streak Come to an End

By Sean McCaffery, May 19, 2018

183 straight games in MLS play have come to an end for NYRB backstop Luis Robles, he has been spelled in Lamar Hunt US Open Cup matches etc. Those from the ATL who may find this to be an act of providence must understand that the NYRB have for some time now had 2 starting 'keepers with Ryan Meara. Not a good time for the kneee injury but let's see how it all plays out tomorrow at 7 p.m. on FS1. Having not missed a start since his premiere game with the team in Sept. of 2012 is a big adjustment some 16,470 minutes with a great 86 wins and a ridiculous 52 shutouts in those victories. He has shattered the record of Kevin Hartmann in MLS setting the new one in a Hudson River Derby of all games with his 119th straight start the infamous 7-0 away win May 21.2016.
