    Would

    The reference below said that "would" can be used to refer to future time from the point of view of the past.
    For example: They knew there would be trouble unless the report was finished by the next day.

    Can you please tell "future time" is "future" even relative to "the time of saying the sentence" or only from the point of view of the past?
