Hard to take a flyer on a 36 year old GK with a broken arm.


If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

Until we sign Alisson we can always do better. That's the nature of playing in a mid-level league. 
 
By expected goal numbers, Meara was a top-10 GK in MLS this season. Robles was one of the worst. It's not really close anymore. Meara is significantly better. 

I hadn't looked at the advanced stats, and though I don't think they are super accurate for goalkeepers specifically, it's really hard to disagree with or explain the large difference between Meara and Robles. Good luck to Luis, but looks like his career is winding down fast.

Is Robles even qualified to be a GK coach?

I dont think its a tedious process to get your gk coaching license. Its a combo of class hours and on the job training.

Is it the same as the regular coaching license?
That appears to take more than a year:

I think you can also request waivers to some of those requirements. Its not a heavy lift.

Luis has been quoted as saying that, before he signed with RB, he was working in a real estate office.
The RE market is currently hot, but who knows if he has a RE license, or where. It may not be his ambition.

Maybe he wants to be a tv commentator? Why assume he is interested in coaching unless he has said so?

I think Jon Conway, Paul Grafer and Zach Thornton quickly became GK coaches once their careers wrapped up. Not sure if they had gone through the courses during their playing careers.

Pretty limited number of opportunities for that
