@francocig,
I've sent mine in already but weakens is gelds.
As for the other one 'gangs' is the only word that fits with the letters you've given, but is obviously not right. Therefore some of your letters must be wrong.

@izzythepush,
I thought of that, but the 2nd G is from 109 across: Eyrie chick = Eaglet, all connecting clues seem right, the connecting clue are: Bleating=Baaing, Nastier=Meaner, demerits=Faults.

@francocig,
Are you sure you've given us the right clue/set of letters?

That mistake does happen.

@cherrie,
Yeah, I gave the tight clues and letters, I'll find out when the answers are out.

I only do crosswords on A2K because they are the best everest.

The way puzzlers put the putative posers baffles belief, which helps.

Having noticed that the answer to the question is a plural I found it difficult to reconcile with the singular clue 'possess' unless:

The question is posses and the answer is gangs.

Gave the tight clues sir
But finding the answer's way out
Got a might looser
Mistaking the easy way out now
It was astray flipper
One day cricket, yeah
It took him so long to find out
But he found out

Franc's a big teaser
He made the posse: possess
Blanks'd been easier
He put the dis in distress, now
He was astray flipper
One day cricket, yeah
It took him so long to get out
Then he got out
