    I'd still like someone to explain to this bear of little brain the working behind "Bing".

    Friends character Chandler (first name Bing) searching for (referencing eponymous search engine) Perry (the name of the actor who played the Friends Character (Matthew) Perry ? )(4)

    Yeah I get all that. I even guessed the answer was bing (with a side guess of como). I guess I don't really understand what the Perry part was doing in the clue. A signifier of surname?

    Brief explanation on my last set- all German language names for Hungarian cities

    1 GYOR- Raab
    2 OFEN (hidden)- Budapest
    3 ODENBURG (anagram)- Sopron
    4 FUNFKIRCHEN (anagram)- Pecs
    5 DEB/RE(Z)IN- Debrecen

    Just on Bing, as I set it, not sure if my occasional clues fulfil any classic set of rules or style guide but I thought this one was a gimme. As mentioned chandler, search and Perry all hint at bing. Arguably the Perry part was superfluous, but it made the clue into a more satisfying sentence and it's hardly misleading- and anyway its a cryptic crossword.
    Hopefully Duncan's triflingly trivial Germany exonames clues are more straightforward!

    Thanks Sean- meanwhile I feel far better informed about other football codes

    I don't understand the Gyor clue either

    1 Borrowing money so Brexteer ends up like Raab (4)

    except that as Dunc has just explained Raab is the German name for Gyor

  22. #20697
    Gyor are the last letters (ends up like) of the first four words. I couldn't connect Gyor to Raab tho until DG showed the way

    Sean - I hope I didn't sound critical. Really wasn't my intention. Honestly the Perry bit comes across as a bit of a red herring to my mind and it threw me (but also I didn't pick up the search engine reference which presumably would have made me more confident of the answer). One of the things I like about this thread is the different styles of cluing that different posters use

    No worries AH, and you're right to question it if it's not making sense.
