I feel like I have to be brave to even talk about it, because Bill Hamid might find out. It seems to me that ever since Hamid became a starting keeper for us, his position was locked and beyond question. The only time he's ever sat is when injured, or on suspension, iirc. You don't question Bill Hamid's place because he's Bill Hamid. If he fucks up, it's not because he's not great, it's only just cause he's young or he's still learning and think of the potential he has! But he's also so aggressive and athletic so somehow that makes up for it. You don't think about other keepers because he's Bill Hamid. You don't talk about other keepers ever seriously getting the starting spot over him because he's Bill Hamid. Europe wants Bill Hamid, so you know you love him too, because clearly he's just that good. You're lucky to have Bill Hamid. Even the USMNT wants Bill Hamid, so you better be thankful that you have him. For now. After all, Bill Hamid could leave you any time. So you better be good to Bill Hamid while he's here and still wants you. Bill Hamid has trouble with consistency. His bright moments are very bright, and their brilliance has a tendency to brighten even his worst showings. And in many, even most, cases where he gives up goals, there are usually some other people to blame. The problem, for me, is that a good keeper should be responsible for precisely those times when everybody else has already screwed up. That's *exactly* when they need to be clutch. The goals that Bill lets in, it's easy to say - where was Russell? Or what was McDonald thinking? But a real amazing keeper - the kind that everyone seems to believe Hamid is - should be using those very particular moments to shine. What's it going to take to get Willis off the bench again? Will we ever see him start if Bill doesn't get another injury? Olsen has shown that he's willing to entertain a decent amount of rotation this year, even if he can be slow to enact it, but I am struggling to recall a single time that he has sat Bill on account of performance. Willis has had bad games. And his bright moments maybe aren't so bright as Bill's. But I find myself feeling far more comfortable with Joe in the net, as if his style is just more settling and I can count on him more, whereas with Bill I really never know what I'm going to get out of him. I still love you, Bill... but if I'm not allowed to even see to any of my other friends while we're still together, it's going to put a real strain on our relationship.
