Luis Robles sets New York Red Bulls' all-time, all-competitions, single-season minutes played record

That was a record that had stood for a long time.

Danny Wild-USA TODAY Sports

In 2000, Mike Petke played 3,522 minutes for the (as was) MetroStars: 2,672 in 30 league appearances; 390 in US Open Cup; 460 in the playoffs. It has endured ownership and name changes to survive as the club's all-time, all-competitions, single-season minutes played record ever since.

Until now. Until Luis Robles made his 39th start of the 2015 season, and played the full 90 minutes for the New York Red Bulls for the 39th time this year, against D.C. United in the second leg of their Eastern Conference semifinal. Those 39 full games played - 34 in the league; three in US Open Cup (including one 30 minute spell of extra time); two in the still-going playoff campaign - add up to 3,540 minutes played so far in 2015.


The Red Bulls have at least two games left to play before the season is over. But let us not get ahead of ourselves.

Congrats, Luis! All the best for the rest of the season.
