Thanks very much everyone
Sorry to say I don't really understand the reasoning for 1a or 14a. Also is 4d (Guy Robert gets one for nothing) RAB?

Any help with these please?
14 Old - Used

United - Fused - drop the F(ellow)
All I can see for 1a is

Manager - Gaffer - minus R, but it's poorly worded if Disaster is also the definition.
I've read it wrong, am a fool

Gaffe (Mistake) + (Disaste)r
Thanks Mamyalynne - not for the first time!
Rib (guy) . Make fun of

Change o in rob for I
Thanks Toorak - I only thought of "male" for "guy", so I changed the o to a. Thinking of Rab Nesbit(t) no doubt!
