Eg Guardian leader in Guardian has got me, but not you, excited (8)
'guardian has got me but not you excited' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this defines the answer.
'eg guardian leader in' is the wordplay.
I cannot really see how this works, but
'in' is present in the answer.
This explanation may well be incorrect...
(Other definitions for managing that I've seen before include "Handling" , "Running; coping" .)
'eg guardian leader' is the definition.
(eg manager of the newspaper the Guardian)
'in guardian has got me but not you excited' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
'in' is found in the answer.
'me' could be 'i' and 'i' is found within the answer.
This may be the basis of clue (or it may be nonsense).
Can you help me to learn more?
