Good evening,
Would someone give me an idea as to how a Linked in Puzzle works? I have never done any before and would like to learn to solve it. Here is this week’s Linked in from the Telegraph. The answer and parsing to one of the 9 given words would be appreciated to get me started. Thanks in advance!

Linked In
In our Linked In puzzle, each clue is an anagram of a linked word or phrase, together with a spare letter. The spare letters can be rearranged to give a related surname.

1. UPSET ALIEN
2. WORLDLY ACHE
3. TAXIMETERS
4. FIFE DOGS
5. TRICK CONKER
6. HEROINE LOST
7. MADE SUIT
8. WANT LOGO
9. PURER AS NUN


To enter, please email the nine linked words/phrases and the surname, together with your name and postal address, to [email protected], to arrive by 9am on Friday, July 16. One winner chosen at random from all correct entries received will win a Telegraph Crossword Companion Set.

1 looks like PENALTIES (with 'u' left over)
2 looks to be YELLOW CARD (with 'h' left over) - so the theme appears to be football.
All of the extra letters should give an anagram of someone connected to football (but I haven't done any similar puzzles).
The next two are -
EXTRA TIME (+s) and OFF-SIDE (+g)
I've solved the puzzle from Prof's 4 answers - rather easy. :)))

Many thanks, ProfessorMaisie, I've got the hang of it and I should soon be done!
Matakari, I don't think it'll take much 'learning' - the explanatory paragraph is very ... explanatory! The puzzle itself os maybe a bit one-dimensional for many solvers.

Thanks again, ProfessorMaisie, I've found it quite interesting and straightforward. Ready now to take up any Linked In challenge!
And I'm ready too, Matakari (you got there well ahead of me, Captain2 - I was held up on 6 for quite a while, thinking it must be something to do with 'the line'!)
Question Author
Yes, Professor, I’ve been following the Euro 2020 very assiduously and rooting for England, so when you suggested the theme was football, I had no difficulty finding the three lions who were still roaring in my head. A big deception, though, as I do not understand how the guys let victory slip through their legs!
I'd very nearly succeeded in erasing the memory, Matakari (will keep working on it).
I think the manager's search for a fairy-tail ending had a lot to do with the slippage.
...or 'tale', even - Freudian slip!
Question Author
I agree with you, Professor, it's so sad that Southgate would send a few youngsters ( perhaps not psychologically ready) in at the last moment to do a job demanding greater experience! But no use crying over spilt milk now!
