Er yes. You said the monsoon conditions began in the 85th minute. You then said they scored in the 94th minute and if the monsoon had come come ten minutes earlier the ref would have a tricky decision. Ten minutes before the 94th minute is the 84th minute, which is one minute before the monsoon actually came. So if according to what you've written, if it occured in the 84th minute rather than the 85th the ref would have had a tricky decision.
I'm not sure how you have managed to get yourself so confused over a relatively simple concept. The monsoon started around the 85th min, and by the end of the match the conditions were in essence unplayable. What I'm saying is that if the monsoon had started in the 75th minute (i.e. 10 mins earlier) the pitch would have been unplayable by the 85th min, which would have created a difficult decision for the ref.

You didn't though! You said they scored in the 94th minute and if the monsoon had started ten minutes previously the ref would have had a decision to make. I took what you'd written as ten minutes before they scored, not ten minutes before the monsoon began.

Does it matter? FFS

Presumably their pitch is due to be ripped up now? It must be ten years since it was layer. IIRC Chas said ours would need to be replaced in ten years and extra fibre sand added.

I guess every pitch has a limit as to how much water can be drained in any given time. 10mm of rain on a football pitch would be 60-70 cubic metres of water (by my calculation) which is a huge volume to get through a pipe somewhere.

Hope that matches Exmuff calculations or you'll be in trouble.
