    It was 'shut'.

    Anagram of huts (shelters), and 'close' wasn't close (near), it was close (shut).

    Heavily laden postman......?

    I've got the answer to this already, but it was quite neat. Some football knowledge required...

    Plymouth Argyle originally played in loaned grounds, resting in mid season. (8)

    Honest?

    No idea about the football one, partisan maybe.

    Sorry - changed 'on' to 'in' on the Plymouth clue. Which makes a fundamental difference.

    Nope - not honest. Think 'American kid's show'

    Pilgrims? Or is that a tad too obvious?

    this is why i fucking HATE crossword puzzles, if you had asked me what plymouths nickname is i would get it in an instant, but the way that was worded meant i was thinking more along the terms of "homepark" (where they play) and trying to shoehorn the answer into the clue.

    fucking crosswords...

    Ok, two left.

    Don't watch the TV channel, return to ecstasy! (5)

    E _ A _ E

    and

    Is shoe sounding well? (5)

    _ S _ U _


    I reckon the second one might be ISSUE (sounds like 'is shoe'), but I can't explain the 'well' bit.
