    Great save. The follow up save on the free kick was very good as well.

    My vote goes for Nat Borcher’s goal line save against Vancouver.

  3. Jozy has scored 30 goals all season says:

    why did he come back to MLS? I read he’s getting like 40 K a season with Red Bulls. Surely he was making more than that while a no2 at a Bundesliga club. why does MLS lowball our players who play abroad

      In a recent interview, Robles, I believe, highlighted several reasons to come to MLS. For one, his wife was pregnant and they wanted the child to be born and raised stateside. In that mention, he noted that since he was unemployed he was without insurance at a critical time. Two, he did not want to be 5,000 miles away from his ailing father. Three, no offers from Europe quite made sense for him and his family in the long-run.

    Nice psyche out by Robles.

    Besides always being photographed with his eyes close, at Kaiserslautern, Robles was known for his pk stopping ability. He stopped a number while he was there.

      In another version that is very poor video quality you can hear the fans chant his name before the shot:

      Though people would want to see the ball.
