    Got another one, peoples.

    5 letters.

    _ _ _ _ L

    "Revolutionary means of transport"

    I thought of 'wheel', but a friend who's completed it says it's not.

    Any ideas?

    Your friend is lying, why wouldn't it be wheel?

    Cos apparently it doesn't fit with the other two clues that I have yet to solve.

    How do you know it doesn't fit if you haven't answered the others yet?

    Ok the other two are:

    "Shut up about the old city! That concludes the debate."

    _ _ O _ U _ E (7)

    First letter of that is the first letter of the transport one.

    And...

    "European city with smelly water"

    _ _ L _ G _ E (7)

    First letter of that is 3rd letter of transport one.

    If it's cryptic then I guess Wheel's more than a bit too obvious.

    Can't read my own writing! That L is in fact an E.

    The smelly water one is COLOGNE.

    I reckon Leolian'sBro is correctamundo!

    Cheers!

    So :

    "Shut up about the old city! That concludes the debate."

    is now
    C _ O _ U _ E (7)

    I think it's CLOSURE, but I'm not sure why.
