I have spent a bit more time looking at this, as I said in my article yesterday I don’t normally write controversial articles.
It appears that there was a lot of snow on the pitch earlier in the week. As many of us are probably aware, snow is very heavy and to move it takes a lot of effort and energy. The snow was stored around the pitch, so it is reasonably likely even if it didn’t rain that much, (although there are conflicting opinions on that), the melting snow would have produced a lot of water. From looking at Portsmouth forums, it also appears that Fratton Park is notorious for poor drainage.
There are also a number of interviews kicking about where Alex McLeish says that he had no problem with the postponement.
As a result of this, I thought it fair to put balance to what I wrote yesterday.
