LA Galaxy forward Robbie Keane on adapting to changing strike partnerships

By Adam Serrano

There's no question that Robbie Keane is what makes the LA Galaxy tick. 

In the latest installment of MLSsoccer.com's The Throw-in, Jonah Freedman discusses the importance of the Galaxy's Irish captain and the influence that he has had on the team in an very interesting piece. In his piece, Freedman breaks down the importance of Landon Donovan to Keane's success, but for good measure, I went a little deeper and broke down the LA captain's numbers ( in all MLS competitions) when he's beside Donovan up top, when Donovan is on the pitch in midfield and when he is out of the lineup. 

WHEN DONOVAN IS IN MIDFIELD: 11 goals.  (3 in 2011, 4 in 2012, 4 in 2013)

WITHOUT DONOVAN ON THE FIELD: 8 goals (0 in 2011, 5 in 2012, 3 in 2013)

PARTNERED ALONGSIDE EACH OTHER: 22 goals. (0 in 2011, 13 in 2012, 9 in 2013)
