Do they rally round when Fred's in trouble? (7)
I believe the answer is:
'do they rally round' is the definition.
The definition suggests an adverb but the answer is not.
'fred's in trouble?' is the wordplay.
'trouble?' is an anagram indicator (I've seen 'trouble' mean this).
'fredsin' with letters rearranged gives 'FRIENDS'.
'when' acts as a link.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for friends that I've seen before include "playmates!" , "Intimates" , "''..., Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears'' (Julius Caesar)" , "Pals, comrades" , "Chums" .)
