Difference between Legbreak and Legbreak googly?

Because the rotations enacted on the ball take it from left to right
Left to right, sure... but not off to leg or the other way around.
Because off and leg apply to batsmen, not bowlers.
You could call bowlers "left-spinners" or "right-spinners", but IMO you need to have a place for "finger" \ "wrist" as a matter of more urgency.
