okay well then why is horvath being called up then? his recent errors were much worse than hamid's, imo... how about 67 million pound Allison at liverpool? that guy had some HOWLERS and is still in place....GK make blunders all the time and stay in their spots.....some get the hook and some don't...it's not as if the criteria for maintaining a GK job are black and white. hamid wasnt sharp likely b/c he was sitting on the bench for 6 months.....i'm not going to hold that against him like you seem insistent upon. that, and that his danish club have no skin in the game...are likely why he is back at dc united more than his not being good enough, imo..... its just good business for them to loan him back to mls...so they did it. doesnt mean he isnt good enough, imo. i prefer steffen too. but there are 3 per roster and the depth chart must go much deeper than that. i would put hamid above horvath and bono from what i've seen. and i also like melia and wish he would be considered. also, about staying in denmark and working on his game...that would be a horrible idea....hamid seems like the player who doesnt do well when he's not getting games. i think that's why he's back in dc. he wouldnt be improving on the bench in europe...no need to just rot away.
