Suj53. For No. 53 - three small words in the clue make up the anagram - look for an occupation.

Thank you all for the clues but what is the matter with me? Still can't get 32...good hint to think AI made me think second word could be main 62 No clue, only thing that fits to do with cricket field is wicket keeper...yes, that shows how desperate I've become! 63 I have no idea at all 79 So many words for residue but can't get it..looked at lees as that's what is left in a wine glass but maybe it's more simple than that 84 Garbo, synonym for garb + o I think but still not solved it....88 good clue ages ago from dougglos about a word for warm and comfortable or cozy but even with my hot water bottle last night I can't get it....and finally the chaplain at 96, with or without telephone parts I can't get it. Will look in chambers in reference library tomorrow if it's free, see if that gives me any inspiration. So, after I've finished this novel I'd love it if anyone could find a different way of explaining clues to me and others. Lots of eye rolling going on I'm sure. Thanks all

Twinsnan - just got 62 and delighted to share. A cricketer who drops a catch might be called this - or in fact anyone who drops something.

Maisiep I love you! Think we're all stuck on the same ones. I looked at Roget's in book form and on line and still can't get this synonym for residue unless I'm being obtuse. Still struggling with 32 , 88, 96.

Twinsnan. No eye rolling from me I can assure you! I am equally stuck. No 79 - my answer is, and goodness knows if it is right is from "layer of leather or wood added to raise heel of shoe". Still can't get no 62 - clues about cricket field makes me think of crease, wickets,bails etc but still no joy. Still others to do but just cannot work out clues already given.

haeremai18 for 62 the 'field' in question could be for any game where you have to catch a ball but can't. Hence in school you'd be called this. Any help?

twinsnan - 96 CH for chaplain, always = ever, almost one = on. It's a type of kid glove.

32 follow the lead given earlier. a 2 letter word often used in scrabble is ai. An ai is a 3 toed sloth.

Despite other clues given I'm still in the dark on 35, 63, 50, 53, 78, 79, 87, 88. Have thouhts about red shoes, residues, dragnets etc etc but nothing is actually gelling. Any different clues/help much appreciated.
