A couple weeks ago, we asked readers to write a poem about Robbie Keane on our Facebook page for the chance to win an LA Galaxy replica 2012 MLS Cup championship ring. Well, there was some dodgy rhyming and a fewplagiarists, but there were also a number of delightful poems about the Galaxy captain.
The Los Angeles Galaxy may have fallen short in their quest for CONCACAF Champions League glory, but after taking some time to get over that disappointment, the defending champions look every bit like a team capable of winning a third straight title.
Facing a fatigued, but still imposing Sporting Kansas City side, the Galaxy showed off the dynamic attacking soccer that was the hallmark of their most recent title run, with Landon Donovan looking like his dominating self and Robbie Keane showing the form that made him the league's most dangerous player in the second half of 2012.
The LA Galaxy already received their Tiffany & Co. championship rings for winning their second straight MLS Cup and offered one as a sweepstakes prize for a lucky fan. But at their match against Sporting Kansas City on Saturday, April 19, they'll give away replica rings (not made by Tiffany & Co.
Can that high-powered Los Angeles Galaxy attack put an end to Sporting Kansas City's 519-minute shutout streak?
That is the question heading into the marquee matchup of the Week 8 MLS schedule. With the availability of Robbie Keane (ankle) and Jose Villarreal (shoulder) in question, the Galaxy could have a tough time cracking Jimmy Nielsen and that stingy Sporting back line.
The Montreal Impact saw their dream start to the 2013 MLS season halted by Sporting Kansas City, but that didn't stop two other teams from continuing impressive runs that few outside of their home markets could have seen coming.
FC Dallas and Chivas USA are two of the hottest teams in the league at the moment, with the Goats running their unbeaten streak to four matches while Dallas improved their record to a league-best 4-1 after edging New England.
A bit different than what we're seeing in Colorado After an epic game at the Dick last night (more on that later) the Rapids are in LA tonight to face the Galaxy. This isn't the same Galaxy as Old Spice has gone to Paris, PrimaDonnanvan is still on walkabout, and Robbie Keane is off with the Irish Nats.
Six days after holding their own in the first leg in Costa Rica, the Los Angeles Galaxy dictated the pace of the game on their home turf in the return leg of the CONCACAF Champions League Tournament against C.S. Herediano.
One first half strike was followed by three more in the second half while the defense contained the Herediano attack for the most part and Los Angeles became just the third MLS team to reach the semifinals of the CCL tournament with a 4-1 win.
The LA Galaxy became the second MLS team this year and the third ever to reach the semifinals of the CONCACAF Champions League with an authoritative 4-1 win against Herediano at the Home Depot Center on Wednesday. The Galaxy played [...]
Los Angeles Galaxy striker Robbie Keane was fittingly on the scoresheet once again as the Major League Soccer season kicked off this past weekend. The former Tottenham Hotspur striker was the club's pinnacle figure in last season's championship run, and carried his good form into the new season as the league got under way.
Mike Magee scored his first career hat trick as the defending champions of Major League Soccer routed the Chicago Fire 4-0 on Sunday at the Home Depot Center. The LA Galaxy dominated the first match of the post-David Beckham era. [...]
No David Beckham, no Landon Donovan, no problem for the Los Angeles Galaxy.
Opening an MLS season as reigning MLS champions once again, the Galaxy showed no signs of a potential title hangover that plagued the club last season. Instead, the Galaxy got out in front against the Chicago Fire in its 2013 season opener, then exploded for three goals in the second half and came out on top 4-0 over Chicago at the Home Depot Center.
The back-to-back champs are looking for a three-peat. The LA Galaxy made that very clear on Sunday afternoon as they throttled the Chicago Fire 4-0 in front of 20,124 fans at the Home Depot Center. Mike Magee is currently the leader for the MLS Golden Boot as he scored three goals and showed no mercy for his hometown.
Opening day is here as the Fire travel to Los Angeles to face the two-time defending champion Galaxy. While they're not the same side that captured a second consecutive MLS Cup last December, LA is still very formidable. Of course, Robbie Keane is still the main scoring threat but without David Beckham and Landon Donovan service will be harder to come by particularly if the Fire defense can force the ball onto the feet of the outside mids where the Galaxy have been somewhat lacking over the last two seasons.
It's a classic storybook tale -- a 32-year-old man who has established himself as a modest star in Europe joins the LA Galaxy and after playing for there for a solid year, gets mistaken for an "unidentified fan" at a Lakers game by a major news agency. That man then overcomes no odds to play a leading role in his team's second straight MLS Cup triumph.

The MLS Draft goes down today in Indianapolis. (Despite the billing, this is not a SuperDraft. You tell me Falcao is available today, I'll change my mind.) But it's the player movement around this shapes the team a little bit more.
The LA Galaxy announced on Wednesday that they have signed Robbie Keane to a new multi-year contract extension.
The Galaxy MVP in 2012, Keane has been a terrific signing by the Galaxy. He has 16 goals in 28 regular season games with LA while adding nine assists. But more important, Keane has been the difference in the playoffs.
The Galaxy announced on Wednesday that they re-signed Keane to a multi-year contract extension. The 32-year-old Designated Player enjoyed a strong season in 2012, scoring 16 regular season goals and assisting on nine others while helping the Galaxy repeat as MLS Cup champions.

If this report at FutbolMLS.net is correct than Obefemi Martins has a release clause at four million dollars (actually at 3 Million Euro, but really close to the same). Now, players can be purchased for lower than the release clause, but at the price of the release clause the current team is granting a new team the right to acquire.
