I enjoyed this very much.  Nice to have some good straightforward cryptic puzzles in the mix.  No bells and whistles just quality clues and a sensible grid.  Thanks Alberich.

Financial Times 14,875 by NEO

My first blog entry for several years, so be patient!

This was a fairly straightforward solve, with no clue taking more than a minute to solve.  I don’t like the use of names as synonyms in the middle of clues which spoiled a couple of them for me, but that’s a personal thing.

Financial Times 14,872 by PETO

Turbolegs.

I thought PETO (unusual for a Friday) set a puzzle that was more approachable than some his earlier servings. I still needed to use the internet to confirm my answers for a couple of clues which I hadnt come across before. 14ac could use some help.

A lovely start to this Friday. Thanks to Peto for a delectable challenge.

Turbolegs.

A reunion with the Don this Friday. A very pleasant challenge with some clues that were just out of reach (annoyingly so) as a direct solve. I had to resort to looking up Google for confirming the parsing for a couple of clues.

Posted by Gaufrid on 24th February 2015

Gaufrid.

Whilst solving this one I felt that some of the definitions and/or parts of wordplay were a bit of a stretch but this didn’t prevent a speedy completion.
