Hi Gabe
First of all prv me with your email or something to find you if Xtratime goes down.

Gabe i would also like to thank you for your posts here.But surely there were better days in the past for the CONMEBOL forum.I don't understand the fact that every other forum,even African,Belgian,FYROM's etc have more posters than this one.Don't tell me the language because the regions i called don't speak English too!

About Xtratime now...i also spent a lot of beautiful hours here as i had the opportunity to talk about world and especially SAn football,something that is more difficult to do with my friends whose knowlege is more about Greek football.So i suggest you to stay a bit more in Xtratime as the last news say that it will be alive for 1 more months and then we'll see,admins and posters try to keep it alive.

PS-Where is colocolo????In the past,he seemed to have more spare time than everyone else and i thought i found a friend/gold about SA news.What happened to him???

I will certainly hang out until the end.

I agree that it has been very sad seeing the forum crowd dwindle to the point where it is now.

But among other issues that has contributed to this besides the fact that it is an English only forum. Is the fact that with the exception of the WCQs and maybe Copa America only Spanish and Portuguese speaking people for the most part have access to info and TV about SA football.

You add the fact that Brasilians, Argies and Uruguayans have their forums, then it only leaves a few countries from which football does not have the exposure to create the kind of interest necesary among English speakers to carry it.

The upcoming WCQs will help but not much. Unless a flood of Chileans, Colombians etc show up who prefer to post in English rather than Spanish, then I think this forum will only increase it's size so much.

I agree 100% with you about Big Soccer, I have no problem posting in Spanish but I think it's more fun when other people from somewhere else in addition to the Latin Americans get involve such as yourself, and they simply couldn't do that in an Spanish only forum.
