Think of Tottenham Hotspur and you think of tradition – cup glory, fast flowing football and, for at short stretch after the turn of themillennium, selling players only to buy them back again shortly thereafter.

Case in point. Robbie Keane had left Tottenham in the summer of 2008, completing a stunning double deal in which the North London club managed to sell him and Dimitar Berbatov, thus depriving themselves of arguably the best strike combination in the Premier League.

LA Galaxy star Robbie Keane, truly as good a forward as has ever stalked for goals in Major League Soccer, tops a lot of lists for me.

Before anyone gets too excited, or wonders if there's some kind of cash prize for that, let me explain that this is not necessarily a good thing. The man tops some "good" lists, but he tops some"bad" ones, too.

The Galaxy may be without Keane and Zardes, but they'll still bring a strong team to RFK tonight.

Optimists will look at the timing of this D.C. United game against the LA Galaxy and be thankful. LA, having flown across the country, is missing Robbie Keane, Gyasi Zardes, and Jaime Penedo. Keane and Zardes, in particular, would both individually be huge absences: Keane is either the best or second-best forward in MLS, while no one on the Galaxy roster has the mix of speed, size, and exuberance that Zardes brings to the table.

Keane to Gerrard: I’m The LA Galaxy Captain

Remember back in 2008-09 when Robbie Keane made a bad decision to join his boyhood team Liverpool? The move never worked out for a variety of reasons and I wonder of if the LA Galaxy captain has any lingering resentment towards Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard about his time on Merseyside?

Keane is the now the captain of the LA Galaxy and he made it crystal clear in an interview this week that he does not expect to hand over the captaincy of LA Galaxy to Steven Gerrard when the former England captain makes his high-profile move to California at the start of July.
