Good Morning Solvers,

Have I gone wrong?

Ban for Edinburgh footballer, it follows (8)
I have prohibit

Disappointing light cream (3&5) I have Off White.

The one I can't get is
Counterpart in top position (4) If the first two answers are correct, this word is - p - o

Can't find a word in my dictionary to fit. We have a local saying for a mate or counterpart as OPPO (opposite number)but don't know if slang is allowed.

Any help gratefully received.

Thanks Aljanon,
didn't know if it was an acceptable word but since your confirmation, I have found it in another dictionary. (Getting a Chambers for my birthday!!!)
Thanks again, I am indebted to you. Cheers.

Still not a happy bunny about one answer.

Be impressive again in the pool (6) _ E _ Y _ E

I have got RETYPE (as in typist pool not swimming pool) but can't see the relevance of 'impressive'.

Any thoughts?

silly boy thanks - that was impressive!!!
Re football, keep the faith it will be ok. We are worse off than you, Allen, Orlandi, Bodde and Pratley all crocked and Notts F. next week!!!!

anniec, as you say, typists press keys -and leave an impression.

Grateful to you both as I am now in line to win £10 - promise if I win, it won't change me.

Blessings.
