Breaking down the LA Galaxy DPs stellar month of July

By Adam Serrano

There's still one more day left in July, but let's look back at what was a month to remember for the LA Galaxy's three Designated Players.

The play of David Beckham, Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane was to spur the Galaxy to their current five game unbeaten streak -- six if you factor in a 1-1 draw in a friendly with Tottenham Hotspur -- and an overall record of 4-1-1 in league play during the month of July. With that record, the Galaxy currently sit in the fifth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference on 33 points and are just a single point behind third place Seattle Sounders and fourth place Vancouver Whitecaps. The Galaxy take on Seattle on Sunday and could catapult over the Sounders with a victory at CenturyLink Field. 

For a closer look at how important the three DP's were during the month of July look at the numbers:

Beckham:  Three goals and four assists in three games played. 

Donovan:  Three goals and three assists in five games played.

Keane: Five goals and Four assists in six games played. 

That's a total of 11 goals and 11 assists for the Galaxy's star-studded trio during the month of July. By comparison, the rest of the Galaxy squad accounted for three goals and seven assists on the whole in the month of July. Meaning that 68% -- 68.75% to be exact -- of total points came from Beckham, Donovan or Keane.
