“Robbie, this is Bruce Arena calling. Thanks for showing up.”
Through the first three months of the season — of which he admittedly missed some time — Robbie Keane had four goals. Then, in the depths of summer, the Irish man exploded for five goals and two assists in four games. That, my friends, is called production.
For his efforts, Keane earned Player of the Month awards, breaking Chris Wondolowski’s one-month reign of happiness and smiles.
Álvaro Saborío, Brad Davis, and Tally Hall also earned votes. But this was Robbie’s month (with a big assist from Landon “Recommitted” Donovan).
Here’s a video of Keane doing his thing against Portland. Get off the tracks, Timbers; the train is coming through. Woowoo.
