Good answer with egg.

Accommodation must be something including the letter t, then with the t taken out, as time usually = t. But I suppose time could also be era or eon.

Re: A plea to Charley Farley - New Crossword
It was really bugging me! I was like you low confidence on egg as the solution. I kept at it because of the "say" = eg. Couldn't see how to get the second G until the 'closer' as an ending revelation!

Re: A plea to Charley Farley - New Crossword
best stab at these is that anything to do with clutch is normally hen as not ova will go with egg with no confidence other than it's 3 letters. The other one accommodation is normally digs, but can't find any suitable words etc

Clutch component, say, coming closer (3)

EGG

say = eg
closer of coming = g

Guessed this early on, but took me a while to spot how it works.

Re: A plea to Charley Farley - New Crossword
I cannae believe it.

And then tidy for the next one. I’m not sure about tidy = lower either but I’m sure there must be an explanation.
