    Cool in delay

    Would it be correct to say "fifty years in delay" meaning something taking place fifty years after it had to occur?

    Thank You

    Default Re: in delay

    Depending on just what it is that's 'delayed' :

    50 years (too) late
    50 years in the coming

    No, 50 years too late. It had to have occurred but it hadn't till fifty years after

    Thanks for your attention
