Posts 1 and 4 referring to 20dn.
I have a word that means "at the centre" or nucleus but do not see any connection with "try to alter".
Have I got the wrong word, or can someone explain.

Hi wally
It's a word for "try" (in a legal sense) followed by the centre letter of another word in the clue - def. "nucleus"

Thanks ! Yes I do have the right word, But even taking it apart I could not see the legal meaning of the first four letters.
So obvious when these things are pointed out!

I`ve found it difficult this week. can`t believe how long I was stuck on the dragon!
14d - I have the answer but don`t get the connection to football. I still have 13d and 15ac to get. I don`t want answers but would be glad of a hint, please? mags.

Hi magworth
14d - the connection is structural!
13d I found the word from the crossers then had to Google it to see what it was - I had never heard of it.
15a is a double definition

hi Mags 14d - I also don't see the connection to football, but it's a support. 13d is a tree which bears fruit. 15ac is a double definition.

Thank you, friends. I worked out 13d too, just
checked it`s right on Google. I can see the fluid and the tree but not the herb !
Maybe the first 4 letters of 14d refer to the famous old footballer?
Mags.
