We can safely say that Robbie Keane hasn't been following the latest goings-on in the Billy Walsh affair. We can also safely say that he'll be fully focused on the Euro 2016 play-offs after LA Galaxy crashed out of the MLS play-offs at the first hurdle in the early hours of Thursday morning.
A 3-2 defeat to Seattle Sounders means that Galaxy's grip on the MLS Cup is well and truly over for this season at least. Given his stellar form since moving stateside, it's no surprise that Keane was disappointed that his season was over. However, what was somewhat surprising was the fact that Robbie Keane has completely forgot one of the central tenets of Irish life. It's almost always someone else's fault.

According to the Seattle Times, here's exactly what Robbie had to say.
Listen, it’s very Irish to never point fingers, but as a group of players you know we have to take responsibility for ourselves. When you concede three goals away from home and you have to score two, it’s always difficult to win the game. Obviously everyone is disappointed.
We can sit here all day and say “ifs” and “buts” but we just weren’t good enough, certainly in the last five or six weeks. That’s it. Full credit to the players who gave everything they good tonight. The effort was there, there’s no question about that.
Granted, that's a commendable position to take but we're afraid we have to agree with this sentiment.
@mattpentz He must not know many irishmen. :P

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the MLS play-offs last night, Juan Agudelo did this as his New England Revolution side went down 2-1 to DC United.
